Rex Murphy: Conservative voters are feeling let down

I'm unhappy with Harper about the relatively lack of progress on a number of fronts.

For example, battling the ability of unions to run the government. Or cutting the size of government.

I'm extremely unhappy with Harper's total unwillingness to even give pro-lifers any crumbs.

But I'm not unhappy about Harper being aloof. I'm actually really happy about it. I don't want a Prime Minister who takes up a lot of media time. To me, that's a sign he's doing his job, and not seeking the spotlight.

I'm also very unhappy about that message: you have nowhere else to go.

That message is extremely arrogant, because yeah, I do. I can vote for someone else or reject my ballot.
