Harper is a better Prime Minister than Martin and Chretien combined. He is a better person and a better leader. He's not an elitist; he's a decent, regular guy.
Due to the chaos that has been the evacuation from Lebanon to Cyprus, the Prime Minister decided to change his travel plans. He diverted his plane to Cyprus and will be picking up evacuees and flying them home. Yesterday, he booted much of his staff off the plane in Paris, as well as all the journalists covering his foreign trip, to free spots for the swing through Cyprus.
Judging from the articles, it would appear that some have had the audacity to suggest that this is nothing more than a PR op. Again, I am so happy Harper is Prime Minister and not Martin. Harper merely shrugged off the accusations and pointed out that there was clearly a need for air support in Cyprus. What's wrong with using the Prime Minister's plane?
Does anyone here honestly think Martin or Chretien would have stepped up to the plate like that? I assure you, they would not have. Elitists are more content to talk than act. We voted in a man of action.
Thank goodness. Our country needs it.
