Cut From The Same Cloth

The PMO released a new photo, to highlight just how much the two leaders have in common:



Conservative spokesman Kory Teneycke:

"You do the math, it's eerie"

I don't know, Steve.. I can see a slight separation of fingers in the Obama wave... plus it's higher, like he's really sincerely waving to the crowd. Harper doesn't quite look as comfortable waving.

It was on Obama's prompting that the two went out for their brief little wave. It didn't appear like Harper was even contemplating going outside. What a schmuck.

Harper mentioned 9/11. He did Georgie proud. Obama thought to himself "I know this guy, I thought he looked familiar." Does Harper have an original thought in his entire brain? I missed Dion and Rae's free wheeling, uncalculated intellectualism today.

I love the comment heard on the hill and mentioned on CBC.

"I saw Obama and some other guy wave!"

Classic.

They're standing, they both have overcoats on...I can see the similarities but that's where they end

No. He's thinking -- "Damn unemployed twits, they're all Liberals. They hate me."

Pity about Harper. Nobody will talk about his photo-ops.

They'll talk about Obama's walkabout in the Market.

Difference: Obama was waving at cheering fans. Harper was waving at... nobody (but the people he imagined/hoped had been there).

This Obama guy is some kinda magic man; I mean sheesh!! The present PM was at a news conference; answering questions!!! Where will it stop? Where will it stop?!!

My husband called from work - they were watching some of it in the boardroom and when Harper waved one guy said - sit down Steve, the crowd is not chearing for you and can't you find a suit that fits.

Obama has 5 fingers.
Harper has 5 fingers.
Wow the similarities are striking!

Obama is human, Harper cylon. Damn skinjobs.

I suppose everyone saw John Baird claiming today that if Obama was a Canadian politician, he'd be a Conservative.

Uh.. which Conservative politician up here is charismatic, and has a rapport with people, and actually CARES about them?

Leave it to good ole Blusterhead Baird to inject partisan politics into this visit.
