First rule in a bad relationship

I've been going through today's headlines and note Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty's response to most questioning is to go on the offensive.

Premier defends 'flick off' campaign
McGuinty suggests bias behind grant questions
Liberals defeat motion for auditor to probe grants
Liberals refuse to release cost of vague, shoddy and unjust amendments to Dog Owners' Liability Act (okay, I made up the headline, but not the Liberals' refusal)

I've learned through a series of bad relationships that the best defense is a good offense. When questioned, don't justify, attack. The attack should distract the questioner, and get you off the hook for answers to serious questions.

Seems to me like we're in a bad relationship with the Ontario Liberals.

And in case you think the federal Liberals aren't as bad...remember this outstanding relationship of theirs...
