Watched Harper and Bush at the White House news conference today. I didn’t vote for Harper but I must say he comports himself well in this kind of setting. He is on top of his briefs and actually projects more substance than Bush does which is not saying a hell of a lot.
It is becoming clearer that Harper does not beat around the bush (oh ho) but deals with a problem with a considerable degree of candour – something even Bush seems to have appreciated.
The fact that Harper conuducted much of his news conference in French raised a number of eye brows including my own. He is pursuing seats in Quebec relentlessly.
