The Conservative Party of Canada has now surpassed the Liberals nationally by two points. Today we’ve already seen Paul Martin (who was supposed to take the day off) going on the offensive. Jack Layton also weighed in with an attack. The Liberal and NDP strategies have changed; both parties are now aiming at Stephen Harper.
What did Stephen Harper say in response to the attacks?
“What the Liberal Party hasn’t clued into in this election is that nobody believes anything they say. So the more they attack us, the less people believe the attacks.” — Stephen Harper, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada
And what did he say about Jack Layton’s attacks?
Nothing (which was enough)
Expect the Liberal attacks to get more desperate.
