He Can Always Go Back to Israel
American officials have already bluntly warned Harper not to pester Obama over the Keystone XL pipeline. It was a pretty embarrassing putdown for the Prince of Darkness of Sussex Drive.
Now word is getting out that Harper might get the cold shoulder from Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto over the Harper government's decision not to life the visa requirement for Mexican visitors to Canada.
Poor old Steve Harper. The Euros think he's garbage. They know bullies when they seem them. South Americans aren't crazy about Beelzebub either. He's not their cup of tea. He's scoring no points with the Muslim world or the U.N. General Assembly for that matter.
Harper's world is shrinking fast. What's left? Oh yeah, Beijing and Tel Aviv. He's always got the Politburo except every time he gets together with them he comes back unable to remember who took his pants. If all else fails, there's Harper's BFF, Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu.
So if the political climate gets too chilly in Mexico, Steve might want to hop a flight to Israel. Who knows, maybe he might even stay there.
