Not ready for primetime

Hon. Bob Rae: Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Prime Minister a very simple question. Does the government plan to launch a significant defence of the Canadian system in light of the attack that is being made on it in the United States of America?

Right Hon. Stephen Harper: Mr. Speaker, we intend to let the United States make its own decisions on domestic debates.
I will say that the Canadian health care system will not only survive attacks by right-wing commentators in the United States but will even survive one by left-wing incompetents in Ontario.

Perhaps Rae could discuss the pros and cons of our system with Belinda.
She is well acquainted with both.

"maryt says... Perhaps Rae could discuss the pros and cons of our system with Belinda. She is well acquainted with both."

that'd be interesting... but i'm guessing boob wouldn't get past the security guard at magna these days.

belinda has no doubt had her share of politics. like iggy... if she can't be the leader, it just isn't worth it.

I am still loving that. People in my cab might think I am insane, because they played that clip many times on the radio and I couldn't help but smile and laugh.

Get out your good question Bob, but remember, you might want to think it through. You can't tell me, with a record like yours, you haven't experienced repercussions before.
