Where is the Napkin?

So the question everyone wants the answer to is “What did Dion promise Orchard?”

This is not about Dion, who is an outstanding guy. However there are some Liberals who do not like the blackmailish way David Orchard does politics. He is making his supporters look like political mercenaries. If Dion falls off the ballot, are Orchard's supporters following Dion or not? Can Stephane make David Orchard sign a “long-term” napkin…errr membership so he can at least stay in the Liberal Party?

I see that this is the Iggy blog message.

The simple answer is that there is none. If there was one, Orchard would be waving it in the air.

As fellow Liberals, we should not be taking down this reminder of the destruction off the PC Party.

I'm going to assume that Dion is anti-free trade, anti-american, pro-Slobodon, anti-SSM and holds a varity of the other insano-rama positions that Orchard and his little cult hold.

Is Maude Barlow going to jump in with camp Dion now?

Dion needs to come clean and say what he told Orchard that got him onside or else Orchard needs to confirm that he has changed his mind on a variety of things and has no problem with Dion being for freetrade and the like.

Black Mail, what are you talking about Antonio? His assurance from Peter MAckay that the latter wouldn't join the Progressive Conservatives with the CRAP. Hardly blackmail. And I can tell you first hand Orchard is much more polite, approachable, likable and familiar with Canadina politics that your candidate, who did nothing but talk about himself over female speakers including Aline Chretien at the King Edward Accord.

As far as being "anti-free trade", well that softwood lumber deal and the architechts of free trade themselves speak against free trade with the US. As far as anti-SSM, so are several unchallenged Liberal MP'S including mine, who were allowed a free vote. Hardly a reason not to take his support.

Antonio, your response is indicative of everything that is wrong with your campaign.

Sometimes people believe in others and need no promises, just vision.

sigh

apparently my personal opinion is a reflection of a Liberal leadership candidate.

Denise, you know that I take issue with people who called themselves Paul Martin Liberals, especially Jean Lapierre.

David Orchard is a roving political party. My view of him has not changed AND would not have changed even if Orchard supported Michael.

My comments were directed at Orchard, not at Dion.

I am, however, surprised that Jason Cherniak implied I was a campaign mouthpiece, which is compelte garbage. I have taken issue with Michael's positions in the past. I will continue to do so if necessary.

Is it Dion's official position that Maurizio got screwed by Sorbara...I men, his campaign blog director Rob Edger and Jason Cherniak both said so. Let's not fill our heads with delusions of grandeur, we do not speak for candidates, they speak for themselves

When blogs lose themselves to the campaigns they work for.

Antonio I applaud you if you are as independent as you say. If you would humour me what are some areas you disagree? I doubt you will say.

Jason is the last person to say someone is preaching talking points. Need we remember his inital interest in supporting Dryden, while he critized Dions' English. This concern soon disappered with the offer of the president's chair in Richmond Hill and a direct ticket to Montreal.

I cannot believe I am about to side with an Iggy supporter but, Jason the evidence of bias is hanging around your neck more.
