Harper called funny guy
“Stephen Harper continues to impress me,” said Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney. “People don’t see him the way we see him, he has a terrific sense of humour and he’s able to analyze from so many different angles.”
He said it’s unfortunate there are increasing security concerns and he’s had to become less accessible.
“There’s some real nasty people around.”
He added that the Prime Minister doesn’t get to show his humour, such as his skilled impersonations, because of the worry of offending someone.
He said, despite his party leader’s master’s degree in economics, “he’s an ordinary Joe, he’s a hockey nut,” he said, who loves nothing better than taking his kids to a game.
“That’s the real Stephen Harper. But when he knows he’s right don’t push him, he doesn’t respond to bully tactics.”
