My favourite line: "This is an opportunity to position ourselves to be among the first to go forward when the economy is restored." Harper’s into the "we can use this recession to our advantage" portion of his address — which would be fine if he’d deployed even a single word to describe, relate to or empathize with the plight of the many thousands of Canadians behind the grim statistics. If he were any more tone deaf he’d be wearing a T-shirt reading, "Recessions Rock!" This is a guy who’d show up at an airplane crash and talk about amazing it is the black box doesn’t have a dent on it.
