Stephen Harper; Economist or Momma's boy

Mr. Harper says that he gets word about the stockmarket from his mother before he gets it from the finance department. Either he has produced his mother at the eleventh hour to prove he has one, or he is not the trained economist he says he is.

First cuddly sweaters, now a fiscal hug from mum? This pandering to poll results both shames Mr. Harper and reveals no small hint of desperation. It seems that when Canadians get to know him and his Conservatives- no matter how he twists, wiggles and re-brands himself- the more Canadians do not trust or like him.
