Stephen Harper's Exit Strategy

Is Prime Minister Stephen Harper planning his exit strategy?  His focus on the world stage as opposed to domestic issues is an indicator he may be writing the last chapter of his political career.  Former Prime Ministers followed a similar path before their departure from politics.

Government’s usually defeat themselves eventually.  It can be argued the Harper Government has provided voters with enough reasons to seriously ponder a change at the next federal election.

I believe Stephen Harper has achieved all he believed possible and another term in office is not likely to make him look any better.  He is ramping up for a rare balanced budget and fiscal promises near impossible to meet as the next election nears.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made his mark on Canadian politics.  It is a hectic life and Canadian voters will appreciate his departure.  Stephen Harper knows it is better to leave politics on his terms than those of the voters.
