Eisenberger can't have it both ways. If he's a Conservative, then he's supporting the neo-Conservative agenda of Steven Harper.

Red Tories would never allow their party to do the things that the Harper governemtn has done without a huge fight. Things like canceling literacy programs, take away the rights of individuals to mount charter challenges, undoing the work of Michael Wilson by dropping the GST and then crushing retirees with their ham handed mishandling of the Income Trust fiasco.

The days when you could be a Red Tory in the Conservative party are gone. You either toe the neo-Conservative line or you are drummed out like Garth Turner and so many others.

No, I'm afraid that Eisenberger is complicit in all of this as a Conservative, and its fair for voters to hold him accountable for what his party has done. If he's truly opposed to Harper he should do the ethical and courageous thing that so many others have done and join Tracy Parsons' Progressive Canadians as a real Red Tory alternative to Harper.
