Rex Murphy: Hillary and Obama, incurably obsessed with themselves, should take a lesson from Stephen Harper

Like no other of his many performances, spoken or written, The Importance of Being Earnest is studded, packed to the brim, with the unequalled brilliance of Oscar Wilde’s wit. When it is established that its hero Jack Worthing (the “Earnest” of the title) has “lost” both of his parents, the dour, droll Lady Bracknell serves up the classic response: “To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.”

    And take a lesson from George Washington. Do your time and get out.

    It’s to Trump’s benefit to have Hillary hanging around. Any time he does something dodgy, there is Hillary, front and centre, to remind people that it could have been a lot worse.

    Obasma at least has the excuse for continued political engagement of being somewhat young and healthy. Hillary is neither, yet she is acting like a future candidate.

    No sense of humility in either Obama or Hillary.

  • Because they are vain, classless, power-hungry buffoons.
