Ignatieff slags riding president as "Liberal of convenience"

From the Ignatieff campaign:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Defection of opponent “overdue” and “no surprise” to Ignatieff campaign

Etobicoke Lakeshore, January 20, 2006 – The official defection of “Liberal of convenience” Ron Chyczij to the Stephen Harper camp in Etobicoke-Lakeshore is a welcome and long overdue event according to Ignatieff supporter and former MP Jean Augustine and Ignatieff campaign manager Sachin Aggarwal.

“Chyczij and his supporters, who engineered a coup in the Liberal riding association months ago, advised the Ignatieff campaign that they would be working for the Tories before Christmas and have been working for the Tories in the riding for weeks. They have finally had the courage to come out of the shadows. Better late than never” adds Aggarwal.

We have known for a long time that these people are not real Liberals” said Jamie Maloney, Past President of the Etobicoke Lakeshore Liberal Association. “Mr. Chyczij and his friends are staying true to form. He never supported Jean Augustine’s successful campaigns either. They’ve been the cheerleaders for the Tories at public events in the riding, and they are behind a series of “anonymous attacks” on Michael Ignatieff throughout the campaign. We are delighted that they have returned to the Tory ranks from whence they came.”

The Ignatieff campaign has enjoyed the support of hundreds of Liberal volunteers from across Etobicoke Lakeshore and Ignatieff is being welcomed on the doorsteps as someone who will continue the tradition of strong Liberal representation for the riding.

So if someone doesn't bow and scrape and let the Party walk all over them, they are not a real Liberal. I guess that belongs in the same class as the Liberal's idea that if someone doesn't agree with them, they can't be a real Canadian.

I suppose that means real Liberals spend their professional life outside of Canada and don't live in their ridings?

I was musing on what they could possibly screw up in the next 3 days, and I had no idea that this would be it. How do you botch spin that badly?
