I ditto the following remarks:
You say that he’s not the guy who opposed universal health care or that once wanted to build a wall around Alberta. He’s the guy that governed carefully from the centre.

You say he steered us through the recession. We made it through despite him, not because of him. You at least gave Paul Martin credit for the surpluses that have since been squandered.

Now we'll see the true Harper, the majority Harper, Harper unchained, unfettered by a pesky opposition.
