Tin Man

Here is a link to an excellent article on our dictatorial Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. It was written by columnist Jeffrey Simpson and appeared in yesterday's Globe and Mail. He says it all so well. Please check it out.

Here are a couple of excerpts:

Thursday's economic statement was an economic lame duck and a political boner. It revealed, among other things, the kind of Conservative Party that all but its core supporters suspected would eventually be outed: a group of ideologues, led by a Prime Minister who discarded his campaign sweater to reveal an economist with a tin heart and a politician who looks everywhere for political advantage. [...]

The miscalculations have been stunning. Mr. Harper's strategy has accomplished already the near-impossible: to bring the Liberals and NDP together.

He had so many other, less partisan options at a time of economic crisis and grave national concern. That he acted in this fashion, at this time, was enormously revealing. And very sad.
