Liberals: We’re Adaptable

Well yes, we are…

Dion’s statement that, “We’ll find a way to not defeat the government and to express our disagreement with this budget” does indeed seem like an ineffectual, maddening sort of pretzel logic, but the budget itself isn’t egregiously awful and the Liberals are in no position to bring down the government at present, so it’s a little facile to criticize him on this basis.

It’s called pragmatism, folks. Get used to it.

Update: Thanks to Dan for the back-link. Meanwhile, over at The “What Do I Know Grit” James Curran belatedly sees the light.
