Contradictions January 12, 2006

Posted by Binford in Politics.

The Liberals are in such disarray that they can’t get their stories straight:

Exibit A:

Liberal incumbent Keith Martin apologized at an all-candidates debate in the Victoria suburb of Colwood. He told the crowd the ad was a gross error that does not represent the Liberals’ view of the military.

He said the ad was one of a series of 12 and it should never have been released.

“Some idiot went and sent it out with the other 11 ads, and it was never sanctioned by the party, never approved, and we are completely appalled that this went out. We apologize to the men and women in the uniform,” he said.


Exibit B

Now we have the Prime Minister saying that he was the one that approved all of the ads, inlcuding the military one:

In an interview Thursday morning on CTV’s Canada AM, Martin said he approved every one of the harshly critical ads — including one that suggested the Tory Leader would use the military to occupy Canadian cities.

The ad did not air and was pulled from the party’s website within hours of being posted. But Martin said the ad was lifted simply because he didn’t think it was very good.


It seems the ‘Idiot’ Keith Martin was referring to was just doing his job and seems to be the scapegoat in all of this.  Also, Paul Martin doesn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with the ad in which Keith Martin has apologized for.  Thanks to Nealenews for the links.

UPDATE:  Angry has a better example of Liberals contradicting each other here.  It’s even worse because it’s the Deputy Prime Minister.
