Yeah, really good for foreign relations. Then of course domestically we have to shoulder all this waste of time and money as the SC has to straighten out unconstitutional bills as he tries to take another swipe at MClaughlin.

Foreign relations have nothing to do with question period or the Supreme Court. You're floundering.

Like I say, Harper is in a snit over XL. He is known for his little tantrums.

If Harper is known for anything it is his pragmatism. And why would you say relations have soured between the US and UK? Between the US and Germany? Between the US and Israel? Between the US and France? All Harper's fault?

Um, I dont think Harper deals for the US. That would be a guy named Obama so you should try asking him about his foreign relations. Harper can be pragmatic, but usually only after there is flurry of blowback to his latest bill or comment. I think on balance he is more vindictive than pragmatic

To On Guard For Thee - I am not so sure of Harpers "tantrums" but I do believe that he suffers bouts of depression during which he is incapable of making decisions. When he comes out of these depressions he is short tempered and angry. Many of his actions over the last few years point to the truth of that analysis. Tom Flanagan, Harpers mentor and tutor (and former close member of the election committee and PMO) and Bruce Carson have both written books about the Harper's personality.

The "temper" thing is public knowledge within the Conservative party but it is the depressions that cause me concern. He has in the past done erratic things and made bizarre decisions which can be attributed to these depressions. Many leaders have suffered the same mental disease in the past but they were all surrounded by loyal friends who kept an eye on them.

Harper is now basically alone. Flaherty is gone, Baird is gone, Prentice is gone, Dimitri Soudas ( a previous confidante) has jumped ship and allegiances, Nigel Wright is gone and under investigation and Jason Kenny is obviously looking towards his own future and not that of Harper.

There is no one left who would speak truth to power if Harpers depression gets worse. That is not a good thing for Canada.

For those who try to dismiss those who write of Harpers mental state I suggest that they knew him very well for many years, from his introduction into politics to success as PM.

I hope that there is someone in his inner circle now who has the courage to take it to the boss if he starts to lose it.

Well, I think Keystone would have been approved by now.

Hillary would have approved if she got something back for it that would benefit her. Hillary is damaged goods and only an idiot would vote for her. This is the political landscape these days? The vote goes to a douche or a turd? What a joke.

Yes, usually that's the art of the deal. You give up something to get something. Regardless of who you think is a douch or a turd, a vote is better than no vote at all. Heck, primary voters might reject her again and go with somebody else.

If Harper is a great pal of the US President, he is called a lackey by his detractors.

If he speaks his mind on a Canadian view of foreign affairs(which he has certainly done), he is called vindictive and hostile.

There is no middle ground for some.

As always.
