Stephen Harper Cribs Karl Rove

Is Harper attempting to spin, bend, reframe or twist the truth into a frame more conducive to his partisan interests?

Of course he is.  

Why this comes as a surprise to anyone is beyond me - it's not like it's his first time doing so. 

Remember the illegal (but actually not) coalition of socialists and separatists?  The evidence suggesting Harper knew better about the Cadman bribe, or should have known about the Wright/Duffy deal?  

And those are just a few examples.  There are lots more, from his and the Party he leads.  

One of my favourite dismissals of process was John Baird's statement that the Harper CPC would go over the heads of the institutions to whom government represents (the monarch) and is accountable to (Parliament).  Or what about the non-consultations of Pierre Poilievre in his attempts to rewrite how Canadian elections work?

Time after time, we've seen that Team Harper either doesn't understand how our system works, doesn't care, or some combination of both.  

Why should they?  After putting up with Canada being governed by those they detested for so long, they've got a majority and are damned well not going to let opponents get in their way.

Worked out well for Karl Rove after all, didn't it?
