My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. Jack Layton
Bah, Coyne's just bitter that Harper isn't pulling a Mike Harris and causing outrage left and right.I'd enjoy seeing the Tories move right -- but when they did that in a measured way with the November 2008 economic update, they almost got turfed.In a minority parliament, one does what one has to, in order to survive. When one does not -- well, there goes political corpses like Joe Clark or Paul Martin.Tories know that. Tory voters know that. Why don't political journalists?
You are right about Coyne's policy leanings, but I agree with him that fear on all sides is causing do-nothingism.
