Luck or Wisdom?

The troubling, but ultimately humorous report of Canadian border guards leaving their posts comes at an ideal time for Harpers's new government. His law and order platform would arm these guards and ensure they had more than bear spray and a small stick to protect themselves and the nation's security.

Some will call it lucky. It's the kind of upsetting, but illustrative news event that seems nearly scripted by the Harper war room. The tragic example of this scenario was the Boxing day killing of a teenage girl outside of a Yonge Street Foot Locker. In the latter case, the shocking news report of this shooting seemed tailor-made for the Conservative platform as it marked a turning point in the campaign.

But Harper isn't so lucky as he is wise. Common sense dictates that the points of authority that enforce civil order have become weakened. Criminals have been coddled to the point of endorsement. The result is a society with increasing violence in the cities where the Left seems baffled and impotent in response. Harper's platform offers real correctives. And because so many things are out of joint in this country, illustrations of our dysfunction will naturally appear on the evening news.

Harper's wisdom will aim to fix those glaring problems. And because they are glaring, he might even be able to get parliament to look beyond partisanship and support his measures.

If Harper can do that, he is a wise one indeed.

If he can do that, and get the momentum going, he may be successful in a lot of things, as more of the public gets behind him. I guess you could call it "getting the moonbat off your back" ... LOL

ABF,

Yes. It will be interesting to see how the MSM will take Harper's approach, not to mention the Divided Canadian Left!
