Can the Liberals Trade Jason Cherniak for a Conditional Draft Pick?

For those who don't know what Jason said, he said that in order to give Dion more spotlight in the circus formerly known as Question Period. the Deputy Leader should try and ask questions not directed at the government, but at specific ministers, despite the fact Harper could answer any question he so chooses. The only way to accomplish what Jason is saying is to fire the Deputy Leader...

No point in flogging a dead horse, (it's not the first time Cherniak has said something so ridiculous) but Jason, let me offer an analogy.

Mats Sundin is the (over-rated) Captain of the Toronto Maple Laughs. If Darcy Tucker had more goals this year playing with Sundin, should John Ferguson trade Tucker to make Sundin look better? Is it a conspiracy by opposing hockey teams to embarrass Sundin? Or does having a guy like Tucker make Sundin and the rest of the team stronger?

Time to go to work, but if Jason wants to give Stephane Dion some constructive advice, it would be not to listen to Jason Cherniak.

I think Jason is right and that Ignatieff is abusing his DL position to spotlight himself. Does the Liberal Party need a DL who answers "I" and "my" instead of "our" and "the party". He is out of line and Jason is correct. It is best to have strong team players but is he really a team player though?

Je pense que l'auteur à raison.
Iggy devrait continuer à performer de la sorte. On a besoin d'un vrai leader aumoins.

Cherniak is right, I wish you Ignatieff would get over yourselves. First you rag on Justin Trudeau, now you rag on Cherniak for stating the obvious. Why don't you get with the program like the rest of us, and stop drinking the koolaid.

At least I'm not the only one who thinks you are overreacting.

when peter mckay started stealing harper's thunder, what happnened??? he was quietly shuffled into a less prominent role so that harper could build his image and define himself. should the liberals be doing the same thing with iggy and dion??? depends if you want dion to have a hope in hell of connecting with canadians or not, and by extension if you want the liberals to have a hope in hell of winning or not. if you want to win, the answer is self-evident...duh!

as an aside, your analogy would make any sentient being conclude that we should be trading you for nothing in return.

Ignatieff is doing exactly what Stepahne asked im to do. Dion is building self confidence skills depth and trust in the caucus and he is completely unthreatened by Ignatieff on the front bench.

Jason is wrong. This is the only way we will win the next election. However Ignatieff's leadership supporters need to get over it, listen to Michael and support the leader 150%. They are a problem, not Ignatieff himself.

Can the Liberals trade Antonio to the ADQ or even to TVA for...?

This is what this post has mounted to. That we should blow up the Liberal party like the Toronto Maple Leafs and rebuild through the 2007 entry draft. Okay, we should do that. But what this thread is saying is that the Liberals should suspend the membership of certain bloggers. What you are saying is the equivalent of denying someone entry into the Air Canada Centre, even if he or she has season tickets, because that person disagreed with you.
