Not sure who's stupider here

Your choices:

The Conservatives, who
  • campaigned on a premise that there was no crisis, surpluses would continue, and life would be good;
  • got into office and immediately announced a fiscal update that was going to be $30 Billion in the red;
  • announced six months later that things were really much worse than forcast and therefore the deficit was going to be more than $50 billion (that's more than)
or The Liberals who
  • demanded $30 billion of stimulus spending in the first place but will now be delighted to jump all over the Conservatives for making the hole deeper than demanded
And they wonder why people don't vote.
