These are not the Liberals of the '90s that got us out of the Tory mess from the '80s (I'm being liberal with the dates).

Completely agree that this is not Paul Martin at the helm however the tried and true rule is that you are allowed one year to blame it on the previous government and after that you get to wear it. They have several months to go yet.

Paul Martin had a far tougher situation as we were up to our eyebrows in Mulroney debt and interest rates were murder. Neither is true of the current situation. Commentary is that a balanced budget will depend more on the economy and far less on government actions.

I am far more worried about provincial and personal debt than I am about this relatively small amount ... can't believe I just said that but it is true. }};-$
