If you can't stand the heat get out of the oven Mr. Dion. Something tells me you will be "served" your walking papers soon enough. Most Liberals must conceed at this point that they chose the wrong "man"...
On Thursday, Stephen Harper endured a second straight day of Liberal attacks over allegations that Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan may have mistreated three Taliban prisoners. The Grits' hysteria prompted the Prime Minister to shoot back that the opposition seems to care more about the rights of Taliban detainees than the safety of our troops in Kandahar. His zinger in turn provoked Liberal Leader Stephane Dion to charge that Mr. Harper was trying to bully him. It seemed a particularly feeble -- dare we say, whimpy -- accusation for a grown man to make.
The exchange also demonstrated that while the Liberals love to dish out partisan invective, they can't take it when it's aimed at them.
Two weeks ago in Halifax, during his cross-country tour aimed at saving his sagging leadership, Mr. Dion accused the Prime Minister of hard-heartedly abandoning the poor by cutting social programs and of attempting "to change our culture to a rightwing republican state."
There must be a very small percentage of the population willing to change their mind. Think about it, the debates come on during an election, and Liberals say the Liberal won, Dippers say the Dipper won, etc. Liberals say Harper is a bully, CPCers say Harper is a leader. It makes me wonder, why do the outcomes of elections ever change?

Yeah I agree with kwlafayette.
If you are cheering for someone in a debate it kinda blinds you to what really happens. I mean if Harper or Dion bombed in a debate the hardcore Cons or Libs would still vote as they vote.
Precieved media bias among groups is also very intresting.... ;) we all thinkt he media is against our group.....
