When the Liberals first unleashed their dreaded attack ads I predicted they would not be effective.
Specifically, I suggested the Liberal strategy to attack former Ontario Premier Mike Harris and the Common Sense Revolution would backfire.
It looks like I was right.
Writing in today’s Globe and Mail, John Ibbitson examines the Tory surge in Ontario and says:
“The Harper Conservatives are achieving this seismic electoral realignment by promising to lower taxes, get tough on crime and put an end to entitlements --- exactly the same message that the Harris Conservatives used. Once again, the Liberal strategy has had a result diametrically the opposite of its intent.”
Remember you read it here first.
