Harper Just As Phony As He Seems!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper
(describing other national leaders
at the Summit of the Americas)
There are few politicians in Canada's political area who are more ideologically driven than Stephen Harper, leader of the right wing Conservative Party of Canada.
This is the same man who brought on a parliamentary crisis last fall by attempting to unilaterally change the rules that govern the funding of political parties in Canada.
This is the man who has described the nation he leads by saying, "Canada is a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it."
This is the man who described Canada's Atlantic provinces as, "A culture of defeat..."
This is the man who described one of Canada's other opposition political parties this way, "The NDP is kind of proof that the Devil lives and interferes in the affairs of men."
Yet, this ideologically driven political animal has the nerve to comment on the political behavior of his peers on the international stage.
He is as phony as they come!
