The Iggy who cried election, part XXII

First under Dion, now under Ignatieff, federal Liberals have not yet tired of bombastically, and energetically threatening an election over the latest matter of outrage courtesy of the Harper government they have chosen to let survive back in January.

They do so knowing full well that the media will report on their swaggering.

Not entirely in their calculation however is that the same reporters will also have to follow up on yesterday’s tale of defiance with this headline as Liberals swallow hard and take what remains of their principles with them.

And thus the paper tiger is once more among the chickens.

Do you really believe every media headline you read? I'm sure you don't, so I'd encourage you to look critically at this one as well.

The Liberal position has been consistent all along on the slush fund issue, and it hasn't changed one bit. Take a look past the headlines and examine the actual comments the party has taken all along. You'll see they have not backed away or toned down anything.

If you do believe the Liberals have backed-down here, show us more than just a tourqued headline. Show us where, exactly. Because I'm at a loss.
