Deconstructing Talking Points

The two main talking points yesterday were:
"We will not back down from our principles that form the basis of our great country, and we will continue to pursue them on the international stage," Cannon said. "Some would even say that, because of our attachment to those values, we lost a seat on the council. If that's the case, then so be it."
"In my view, (Ignatieff's statements) were used as an issue to prevent Canada from succeeding to the Security Council."
So, to recap, Canada lost because Germany and Portugal prostituted their ideals to get seats and because Michael Ignatieff has more credibility on the international stage than the government of Canada.
