Now THAT'S a Leader!

If this were Paul Martin, he would talk, and talk, and talk about how "everything is being done" to rescue those Canadians stuck in Lebanon.

Harper heads there himself to personally rescue 120 Canadians.

Seriously. Where else are all these supposed complaints about Harper being slow off the mark coming from? I've been talking to a lot of people about this situation, and not one, not one person has mentioned to me that they thought the government was too slow in its response. But Harper is the same as Bush, so this is really our own little Hurricane Katrina! Get it? Get it?

Let's compare reaction times to international crises, shall we?

How long did it take Canada to respond to the 2004 Tsunami in Indonesia?

16 days

How long did it take the new Conservative government to get cruise liners and planes to rescue Canadians in Lebanon?

4 days.

You do the math.

I guess that's not fast enough for those reporters, though. Where are those darn Star Trek transporters when you need 'em?
