Well the Tories have unleashed their first anti-Michael Ignatieff TV ad and here it is:
I don't like it.
First off, it's the first attack ad I've ever seen which attacks the other guy for using attack ads! Talk about hypocrisy.
Secondly, the ad actually reproduces the Liberal message "Tory times are tough times" in the spot!!! That's like giving the Liberals free advertising.
Thirdly,the overall message -- Michael Ignatieff lived outside the country for 34 years -- is incredibly weak.
So what if Ignatieff lived outside Canada? That doesn't make him a bad person or a bad leader.
What will make him a bad leader are his ideas.
So instead of focusing on simplistic, nationalistic nonsense, the Tories should explain why a Liberal government will be bad government.
