Constant Vigilance offers strategic advice

When your opponent is drowning, throw the son of a bitch an anvil.

Through BCINTO (he had a chance to blog on it first since Steve V is on R&R), we learn that Harper, once the Conservatives strength, is now their anvil. That the Liberals are obliged to bring down the Manyberries Machiavellis is more than clear. The may yet be held back by Nervous Nellies in the caucus or calculations by strategists.

If the Liberals wait, the Conservatives will have time to repair Harper's image. And this advantage will be lost. Very few people actually like Harper or the Conservatives. Many voted for them because they like backing who they perceive to be the eventual winner. Now that he is seen as a loser the pile on will begin. The joiners will move to the Liberals. This election has the potential to reshape the political landscape by forcing the Calgary Cretins back under their rock. Don't throw this away.

I began this with a quote and I will end this with a quote.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative ( and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now".

- J. W. von Goethe

Ignatieff will lose credibility, big time, if he backs down now. Canadians will not want an election anymore in the fall than they do now, perhaps even less if the flu pandemic worsens. Agreed, begin it now with a motion of nonconfidence.
