"I would certainly not like to find myself governing this economy today."

By DJ Kelly December 3, 2008

There’s a clip from last night’s This Hour has 22 Minutes episode that caught my eye. It shows the PM misspeaking a little in the House. He was having difficulty remembering who he was talking to. It made me laugh because apparently he doesn’t even know who is or wants to be the Prime Minister any longer!

I’m joking of course, but the second half of the sentence he delivered does give me pause and caused me some confusion:

“I can just tell you Mr. Prime Minister I will… or Mr. President… I would… I can just tell you I just tell you Mr. Speaker I would certainly not like to find myself governing this economy today.”

I don’t think Liberals, NDP or Bloc would like to find you governing this economy today either. That’s kind of what has us in this whole mess. If you agree, you’re welcome to step aside and we can just avoid the whole hullabaloo that is coming…

(I couldn’t find a direct link to the video – stupid Flash players – but here is how to find it: click here, then on the right hand side – under Latest – find the clip called “From the Newsdesk”. Currently it is on the second page. The comment is found at 2:10 into the clip.)
