Stephen Harper and the Perfect Photo-Opp
Well I guess this is no surprise.
The federal Conservatives, breaking their own taboo, are calling on Canadian voters to give them a majority in the next federal election.
Not after a summer of giving away billions of dollars of our tax money to try to make the Cons look good.
Not after this perfect photo-opp
Then, Defence Minister Peter MacKay sauntered onto the deck with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. They stopped to make idle chit chat until urged by handlers to move forward a few metres in order to have them perfectly positioned with the other two vessels in the background.
But wait! There's more! Three CF-18 jets flew past in formation. But the fly-by was a little too fast for some camera operators and photographers to catch the entire montage of sub, jets and coast guard, so the CF-18s passed over four more times.
Golly. Isn't it good to know our armed forces have the time to keep the Taliban AND the Russians from invading Canada?
And can STILL put on a jolly good show to help the Cons try to win a majority. By posing as the Defenders of the North. When they just want Big Oil to own it.
You know all things considered when it comes to portraying Great Ridiculous Leader as a WARRIOR.
I think I prefer this one...

Because he's no warrior...or Leader eh?
But he REALLY has to go....
