It's bad enough that Prime Minister Stephen Harper is racking up massive deficits in this country, but now he's also acting as an apologist for American president Barack Obama's stimulus insanity.
Speaking on Fox News, Harper declared:
"We need stimulus spending now, and I say that as a conservative ...When the house is on fire . . . you have to bring the hoses and spray water all over it, you can't worry about the basement ... The reality is, the fiscal situation in the United States is very worrisome, but that said, President Obama came into office with a deep structural deficit position, at a time when fiscal stimulus is actually required economically."
If that's speaking as a conservative I wouldn't want to hear him speak as a liberal.
