The G8 for 2006 is over. Attendees,journalists,demonstrators, watch dogs etc etc are now parking and ready to head back to their base. I am still wondering whether this meetings worths the attention it gathers every year round.

But as the "picnic" ends and promises are on the tables again,I notice one thing.Canadian Prime Minister,Stephen Joseph Harper is the youngest yet the heaviest. Should I say the flabiest? Born in 1959 he emerges as the youngest among them all. The oldest I think (he must get out of politics now) is Jacques Shirac (1932) of Zinedine Zidane,oops of France.

Did you ever notice that "Steve" was not this much heavy before getting this job?Is it because of stress?Come on now,who is in charge of his exercising routine? Dawg,you need hit the gym!

Brother, If you want to criticize our Prime Minister, then criticise his policies.

The media has spent more then enough attention to his "belly" and almost nothing towards his party platforms and promises.

My guess is because he has managed to maintain solid leadership and fufill many of his promises made in the election campaign.

Unlike his "overweight" predeccessor Paul Martin who did not understand the concept of true leadership and honoring one's word.

If the belly is all one can critcise about Stephen Harper, then he must be doing one hell of a job!

Good to see you posting more often. Peace to you my friend.

We don't have to be politics and policies critics all the time.Sometimes we have to relax a bit and pay attention to things that could make us laugh or just "feel good and sane".I guess I was trying to do just that.Whether he has/is doing a hell of a job or not I am not the one to say,at least right now.Take it easy

Sorry bro. I did not recognise that you were writing "tongue in cheek".

Thank you for the clarification.

I have read a number of articles in months past where they really did write about Harper's belly in some pathetic way to try and discredit him????

I thought you had jumped on the same bandwagon. My apologies for the confusion.
