Which Deficit Would That Be Again?
Forecasted federal deficit fails to materialize, ideologues set to eat words
In politics, there are few things more satisfying than seeing a fervent ideologue get theirs...
That's the trouble with blinkered ideologues like Lindsay Stewart. Fact doesn't factor very deeply into their ruminations. Not when they've invested so much time and mental energy in flinging accusations of "Canada hatred" at their political opponents.
Of course, both Ralph Goodale and Lindsay Stewart could have saved themselves the embarrassment if they had waited for a deficit to actually pop into existence before ranting and raving about it.
At the very least, Goodale's and Stewart's comments should make for a fairly substantial meal.
