Me Too! Me Too ...I Have Ethics Too!

Well....within the week of Stephen Harpers disowning of a BC Candidate who faces criminal charges our illustrious outgoing PM Mr. Dithers himself has shown us that he too can take firm and decisive action on ethical grounds. What's the difference between this and the Harper disownment of Derek Zeisman for his failure to own up to his legal woes?
Simple and fundamental. Harper is doing and has done exactly what he said he would do all along!
For Martin and the LIberals this is a COMPLETE about face from their past behaviour.

Martin dumps Liberal candidate in B.C. riding after accusation of bribery

at 18:29 on January 13, 2006, EST.

VANCOUVER (CP) - Prime Minister Paul Martin dumped one of his Liberal candidates in British Columbia on Friday after the man was accused of trying to bribe the local New Democrat candidate.

In a news release, Martin said "it was in the best interests of the party that Mr. (David) Oliver cease campaigning as a Liberal candidate and that he not sit in the Liberal caucus should he be elected."

The move came just a few hours after the NDP publicized a complaint to Elections Canada from NDP federal secretary Eric Hebert alleging Oliver, the Liberal candidate in Abbotsford, offered NDP rival Jeffery Hansen-Carlson a job in Ottawa and help contesting the next civic election if he publicly threw his support behind the Liberals.
.............................And so on blahblah blah..................

How convenient that Martin and a couple of Liberals from a riding that has no hope successfully contesting the election against a Conservative shoe-in get to play Me Too with the tough love policy! What a wonderfull thing that they can now claim to have a sense of ethics and have taken the appropriate action. I wonder if this will mean that Dithers will dismiss all the culprits who are embroiled in all the rest of the scandals from the LPC......Including himself?

Don't count on it! These people are so entrenched in their self professed righteousness that you just know this is being done for show and only for show. Since the Liberals now seem poised to be tossed out of office in a BIG WAY we can count on their protestations of victimhood and charges of evil against the Conservatives ( and the NDP for that matter!) to go completely Over The Top. You can be shure that with no chance of being called on to actually live up to any promises or justify any claims they will be unrestrained in their willingness to make promisess and claims that no fool would believe. WE are shure to be hearing next about how they have become victims of unfair treatment by the media and their "Unscrupulous" opponents.

Well folks just remember the years of BS we have had to endure from the LIberals and understand that their demise is your victory! Justice at the hands of the electorate!

How sweet it is!

That's exactly the reason Martin did it - because Harper did it. He's playing catch up. Not very well I might add.

They have already begun screaming media bias on their blogs. They believe sweeping generalizations like "Harper is Scary!" to be news, but reporting actual scandal and incompetence? THAT'S BIAS. Go figure.

I think if Marin loses the election then the Liberals will dump him...

Thanks for the thoughts...

Sara I think you are right about Martin Getting Dumped because there seems to be some activity in the party ranks that points that way.

But it may be a good thing if they take their time so we can have him in parliament to kick around for a while.

Yah, I'd like to see him spend a week doing my job at home. I bet you he'd break in an hour. Mind you with his track record I wouldn't leave money around the house with him in it!
