Receiving Lectures From Those Whose Only Mark Is Failure or Irrelevance!

From the deep and wise minds of the Can West news desk:

Harper has to establish positive relationship with next U.S. president: experts


And who exactly are these "experts" ?

Well : Aside from one of the usual "go to" sources of canned opinion that our intrepid media types have handy at their Rollodex for any situation or theme that requires some sort of validation by "authority". Whether that "authority" has any credibility beyond what is imagined in the credulous mind of those unfamiliar with the realm of the academic..... we are offered the sagacity of ....

Former PM Joe Who for One .... whose own record of governance and foreign policy success is more like a text book example of what is sure to fail. And did.
And what is the deep wisdom that he offers ?

"Harper needs to change his attitude toward Canada's own foreign policy experts, Clark says."

Oh.. he was Brian Mulroney's foreign affairs minister? And PM Mulroney had a wonderful relationship with Reagan? Well yes ... because Brian Mulroney never listened to Joe ... or the civil servants in Foreign Affairs...I suspect. Had Mr. Clark held so much received wisdom from his experiences would he not have been able to take a leadership role with lasting impact?

PLEASE! Canwest writer Chris Cobb like most of his ilk just don't have the guts to say what they think and instead find it necessary to wrap up their simple opinions in the garb of "serious" journalism.

What it boils down to Chris is that you want to say that Your opinion is that our PM Harper isn't smart enough or able enough to deal with being PM. And that in your opinion he should emulate the failures that you seem so enamored of.
