Confusion To Our Enemies

And by enemies, the Tories obviously mean the Canadian people. Why else would they apparently mislead the public about the cost of their defence rebuild? The hope seems to be (and they may be right, which really ticks me off) that if the government tosses several numbers into the air, the public will just throw up its hands and say "We can't follow this. It is way to confusing." and change the channel. This may be a good way to spend $100 billion without public oversight, but is is a pretty poor way to run a democracy.

  1. Is it too cynical to wonder if the Cons deliberately threw out misleading and conflicting numbers to make sure that future military spending would be more than a one-day story?

    For that matter, is it possible to be too cynical about this bunch?
