Ignatieff Goes To China

Michael Ignatieff met with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi today and accepted an invitation to travel to China in early September.

To the best of my knowledge, Harper has yet to make time for such a trip. In fact I've heard Minister Cannon on many occasions repeat that Harper will travel there, when his agenda allows.

Who knows, maybe his schedule will open up now?

We used to say that "Only Nixon could go to China."

We should now change it to "Only Nixon and Ignatieff could go to China."

Yep this is the new catch phrase. What do you think hey?

In early Sept, Harper will be busy campaigning to keep his job which is what he's been doing ever since he got it.

Hey, maybe Harper will be in court again in September - Democracy Watch is taking the Cons to court for breaking the law - the illegal election last fall.

You know, the stuff just keeps mounting up.

One thing for sure, (the Con trolls and Iggy haters will attack) Ignatieff will act like an adult, a statesman and won't embarrass us like Harper does.

KNB it's a joke have a sense of humour geez. Life is too short you need to laugh every now then. Not to take everything so serious.

KNB I just lost my uncle last Sunday where i have lived my entire life just a few feet away from him o.k. I still find time to enjoy life and laugh.So don't give me read "my next post" crap.I follow the news just has much as you do if not more. Enjoy life is my advice to you it's too short. I've lost two family members since last January. "Life is short"enjoy it.

Right, I'm sorry for your loss. Really.

I do however have the right to laugh when I choose.

There is irony in your Nixon comment though. Nixon frequently comes to mind when I think of the lawlessness of this PM.

btw, I thought you were leaning toward Ignatieff?

sjw said...

Yeah, our country is getting flushed down the crapper by ideological imbeciles!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Sorry about your uncle, Buddy, but what is happening to this country is criminal and if you and others like you are in support that then as far as I'm concerned you're all implicit.

"Right, I'm sorry for your loss. Really"

"Thank you"

"btw, I thought you were leaning toward Ignatieff?"

I'm still leaning toward Mr. Ignatieff. But i have to tell you i was disappointed in him the last week of parliament. I'm still waiting to here from him what he would be doing differently than Mr.Harper. I'm not talking about rhetoric,I'm talking about concrete solution.

But i don't buy the argument that i see on the liblogs no matter what Mr.Harper does is wrong. That is a load of bull. For God sakes even the Liberals have voted along side the Conservatives on none confidence bills. Where there wouldn't be any election if they would have voted against.
