That's what Bob Dole trumpeted almost twenty years ago, when he was running against Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski. Try as he might, Dole couldn't generate public outrage against Clinton.
Susan Delacourt wrote last week that Conservatives can't seem to generate any outrage over the fact that their top security database -- the Constituent Management Information System -- was used as the source for most robocalls:
Where was the outrage over their database being hijacked? Where were the reassuring words to supporters, or the thousands of other people whose names are in that database, that the party was doing everything it could to make sure the system couldn’t be hacked?
Ever since the first news of the robocalls fraud emerged more than a year ago, it’s been perplexing to see the Conservatives’ stunning lack of curiosity about alleged abuse of their secret campaign weapon called CIMS .
Rather than outrage, the Conservatives have done everything they can think of to sabotage Elections Canada's probe into the matter
Moreover, we learned this week, thanks to confirmations by chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand, that Conservatives have been slowing down the criminal probe into robocalls — keeping investigators cooling their heels for months, scheduling interview appointments that get cancelled and making key people unavailable for questioning.
You don’t need a degree in psychology to ask: Is this how people act when they’ve got nothing to hide?
It would appear that the Conservatives have a great deal to hide -- whether it be Mike Duffy's Senate expenses, the cost of those F-35s, or the files on Afghan prisoners.
Information -- true and accurate information -- is their enemy.
