Harper: the Confidence Man.
In a Toronto Sun interview they wrote "Harper, who is an economist, said it's tough to predict how long or how hard the global economic meltdown will impact Canadians, but he's "confident" he can guarantee the country won't slide into recession under his watch." Funny, he was also confident that joining the Bush League in Iraq was the right decision, confident that the War in Afghanistan could be won, confident that Canadians were just worried about the stock market and not about their homes and savings, confident that the rest of the economists in the country are wrong about the value of a carbon tax, confident that climate change science was a socialist plot. Oh he's a confident guy alright, the only problem is he is also wrong more often than not.
