What Stephen Harper can learn from Colin Powell

In 2005, Stephen Harper either didn't know what was happening within the highest ranks of his own Party or felt comfortable fibbing about what he did know.
Eight years later, the same thing's happening.  Deals are being made within the upper echelons of Harper's staff - deals that are questionable in their legality - and Harper either has no ideas what's happening within his own house or is lying to us.
All this reminds me of a Colin Powell quote on leadership:
Maybe this is all part of Machiavellian Harper's plan to get the public to distrust and demand less government, who knows.  What is clear is that leadership is fundamentally not what Harper cares about.
