Stephen Harper's in Brazil: Dilma Smacks down Standard and Poor

Stephen Harper was in Brazil yesterday, and met with dthat country's former guerilla president Dilma Rousseff. He listened, apparently, while she told reporters about how solide Brazil's economy was and how Standard and Poor's downgrading of the US was "rushed."

Of course, "listened" maybe isn't the proper word because while Harper gets along all right in French, it's doubtful that his Portuguese is all that good. Too bad, because he might learn a lesson or two from this country whish continues to stick, more or less, to the left-centre policies started nearly 10 years ago with the election of Lula.

Here's her interview, for those who want to practice the language of Camões.
