OTTAWA–It's been a jarring few weeks for the Conservatives with climb-downs and flip-flops on everything from the national anthem to contraception.http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/783134--tories-tripped-up-by-flip-flops-tantrums
In Parliament, the Conservatives also initially bucked a motion to crack down on political mailings, mocked an NDP motion to put limits on prorogation, and continue their battle with opposition MPs seeking to view documents on the detention of Afghan detainees.

Hard Tory Times
Bruce Champion-Smith looks over the past few weeks for the Tories. It has been very hard for them. Wasting time on changing the national anthem and not including contraception in their plans for hosing the G20 nations. A new motion was set to have the speaker find three ministers in contempt of Parliament. Stephen Harper has to start re-portraying himself as a strong leader if he wants to regain even more support. If not, people are going to abandon him.
