Figures In Speech

It is fitting that Stephen Harper addressed the nation on the fifth anniversary of 9/11.

Thinking back to 9/11 itself, however, I recall that the prime minister of the day waited three days to give a short speech full of pious platitudes and then, with his usual insouciance, claimed that there were no terrorists operating in Canada.

Remember the days when the best you could hope from the prime minister was that he would keep his mouth shut and not embarrass us before the world?
