Headline: New Government, new approach!

Only in Canada would it be headline news that a new government will be guided by a new approach. Not only that, new Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin, felt it necessary to expand on the prior fluff:

OTTAWA, Ontario, December 12, 2003 — Prime Minister Paul Martin announced a new Ministry today, committing that it will be guided by a new attitude and new approach in working toward real progress on the priorities that matter most to people.

The problem with most politicians is that they spend too much time worrying about what people currently care about, as opposed to what is going to effect people in the looming future. Doing more of that sort of thing will only make things worse, not better.
