Does everytime Harper talk about the sins of the previous government make you glad he's there to fix it all, or do you find him a whiney fingerpointer - the rat in the class nobody ever wanted to hang with?
Is there a parallel between blaming the previous government and blaming the previous political head ( i.e. Martin/Chretien or Gore/Clinton)? Neither Martin or Gore benefited from that strategy - will Harper be able to use this to his advantage?
I was neutral on the whole thing then Ambrose's comments at the environment summit got me started on this...it didn't sit right with me that she was deflecting to a previous government, it made her seem unworthy of holding high political office. By blaming, she aggravated my concern that she could fix the issues we all know we have - it seemed like she was front loading for the eventual fall out. (so sorry I couldn't get the job done, but honestly, the mess it was left in...- as her "boss" my reaction would be quit whining and just fix it, you'll be known by the fruits of your labour?)
