Following today's latest imbecilic comments from Toronto's ummmmm "Mayor" . . .

BBC News - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford apologises for oral-sex remarks (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24947207)

The father of two young children said that he was "happily married" and used crude language to say he enjoyed enough oral sex at home.

We are now looking forward to "Tom Ford's quote of the day" :}

Drunk, crude, even drugged he still does a better job running the city than his predecessor David, the socialist, Miller or any of the lefty wannabes who only dream of getting rid of cars and installing bicycle lanes.

The best part about him is that he gets under the skin of every lefty, so called enlightened, downtown politician and they cannot do anything about it.

Ford should drive his SUV into Toronto harbour while getting a bj from a nubile lass. He could then swim to shore, spend the night in a hotel and report the accident in the morning. That's a sure-fire formula for re-election. The precedent has already been set. :E

A Ford, not a Lincoln. Big deal. (http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/363925/ford-not-lincoln-big-deal-mark-steyn)

Drunk, crude, even drugged and probably all at the same time, Looks about 65 years old. At least he probably won't live out his term.

Reading through the links he seems to have a lot of problems

Mostly in the form of the left trying to remove him at any cost. They haven't been successful so far, despite all the ammunition he had given them. :=:=

Pigboat, he could deny the whole affair and ask "depends on what the meaning of 'is' is". That one works well towards forgiveness too.

Which raises the question; does it matter if a pollie is a total jerk in his/her private life, as long as they're a competent public official? Does one preclude the other, particularly when none of these accusations seem to involve official corruption or misuse of his public office? Worldwide, many boring, respectable people have been fine upstanding individuals but totally incompetent politicians. Can the opposite apply?

From Fernytickles original linkOn Wednesday, the city council voted 41-2 requesting he take leave, but they have no authority to remove him. Mr Ford has vowed to stay on and run for re-election in October 2014.

Well, the CBC seemed to devote 99% of last night's 'news' to a thinly veiled campaign to get rid of him....

SO - HE GETS MY VOTE!!!!!

Interesting how someone out of their head on crack and booze can actually deliver on their pledge to cut taxes, red tape and bloated government. His opponents fail to deliver on their promises even when they are stone cold :mad: sober. What possible excuse do they have??????


Rather than admitting multiple infractions, he should just use Ollie North's famous 'I have no recollection of that' line. Works for me! :E

So far no real accusations of sexual misconduct. Probably why the left hates him so much.

Yes, indeed some of the councilors that voted against him are on the right, but they all turned on him because they see a political opportunity to stab him in the back.

The difference between Ford and Clinton being that Ford had no problem coming clean. It wasn't about getting his weasel greased, it was about the lies and cover ups. You'd expect the bloke with his finger on the red button to have a little more integrity than that shown by Slick Willie.

No they couldn't. In this entire circus and media feeding frenzy one thing nobody could do is accuse him of not doing what he said he was going to do. He got rid of bycicle lanes, he eliminated the car registration tax, he privatized the garbage collection. The list goes on. That's why they ate him so much

Here is what a friend of mine said, a while ago, before all this started

You underestimate the lefties hypocrisy and thurst for power.

They don't hate Rob because he's a conserative, they hate him because we, the inferior suburban class, like him and he listens to our concerns.

They hate him because while they set up committees to TALK about how to help the inner city kids and commission yet another study they will pay one of their lefty friends with a consulting firm to conduct, Rob is actually out there DOING something for the less fortunate.

I don't disagree with a lot of that. What I do have an issue with is the right wingers on this board blowing it off(see what I did there) as nothing more than a bit of fun. Don't get aerated about it....guy just had a blowjob...move on...nothing to see.Bet you a pound to a poke in the eye if the guy had been a left wing mayor the sisterhood would be up in arms over the indignity of the whole thing

For what it's worth (and it makes NO material difference to me) the guy appears to be making Toronto look bad. He must be pure comedy gold for the Canadian stand up industry. Blow jobs in office....and from Bloomberg Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who admits smoking crack cocaine, faced new allegations in police documents released yesterday that he brought prostitutes to his office, guzzled vodka in his car and made a racial slur to a taxi driver.

Hey but at least he got rid of the bike lanes........THAT'S what the world will remember him for.

Seems a lot of what he's doing weren't part of his election promises. He even makes Farage look good.

.. and from AP (http://news.yahoo.com/toronto-council-strips-mayor-rob-ford-powers-161214702.html) earlier today:
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford vowed Friday to take City Council to court after it voted overwhelmingly to strip him of some of his powers over his admitted drug use, public drinking and increasingly erratic behaviour.
Then, in a flash of remorse, the 44-year-old Ford declared: "If I would have had a mayor conducting themselves the way I have, I would have done exactly the same thing."

Oh there will a lot more than just one. Remember that "FORD NATION" is not so much about Ford, the man, as it is about being against the inner city elite, the intelligentsia, the "I know what's best for you" lefties of the likes of Adam Vaughan, Olivia Chow, David Miller and the rest.

I think, though, even if a politician is on the same page as you are in policy terms, there is a minimum level of decorum one must meet to be an effective leader and honorable representative of constituencies.

I don't know all the detail of Ford's foibles, but what has been covered and published to us Detroiters a hundred miles away would seem to be enough to withdraw support for the man.

I would have ceased to support even Ronald Reagan if he had disgraced his office by shameful personal conduct (he never did). That President Clinton's popularity increased after his gross misconduct was revealed will always sadden me. Political expediency should never trump honor and respect.

pigboat
16th Nov 2013, 21:03
I hope he takes a leave of absence, or something, to dry out. My support became questionable with his remark about eating at home, that to me was over the top.

Ford's misfortunes began the morning after he took office. The downtown silk stocking socialists could not believe that a man from Etobicoke, Etobicoke!! had won the mayorality. He further alienated them when, among other things, he encouraged Porter Airlines to expand operations at City Airport. The Toronto Star - a loathsome piece of bumwad if there ever was one - as well as a well known civil rights lawyer representing a defeated candidate for alderman, have spared no effort to dig up dirt to the extent of going through Ford's garbage and camping out in neighbour's back yards. The public have latched onto every breathless revelation while ignoring other smelly messes in their back yards. The current Provincial government literally stole a billion dollars of public money to win two seats in the last Provincial election. The leader of that party is now being asked to remove Ford from the mayor's seat. To her credit she has been reluctant to do so, no doubt unwilling to stir up the inevitable shit storm of controversy that would entail. The mayor of another large Ontario city is up to his lower lip in doodoo, being accused of extortion and fraud and everything in between, but you have to actually go looking for any mention of this bit of news. Could it be because he's not only a liberal, but an ex-cabinet minister at that?

As far as being made a laughing stock of, try this on for size. In the Province of Ontario one cannot go to a corner depanneur to buy a bottle of plonk to go with your spaghetti and meatballs. It must be done at a Government monopoly liquor store. When doing groceries, you can't buy a six pack to go along with them. That must be done at a Beer Store - at least the name is functional - the ownership of which is split between the three major Canadian brewers, again with the approval of Provincial government. Twenty five years ago I spent Super Bowl Sunday in Ottawa. My co-pilot and I agreed to eat in my room and watch the first half, then retire to the bar for the second half. Upon going down to the lobby, the bar was as dark as the tomb. It seemed in the Capital of all Canadians, located in Ontar-iar-io, one could not get a beer on Sunday without ordering a meal, and there was no food available in the bar, ergo, bar closed on Sunday. Laughingstock indeed.

Continuing pigboat's off-thread last paragraph - some years ago I had to fly to LHR by way of Toronto. Unbelievably, the Duty Free store was closed - due to it being Good Friday. I wonder how many thousands of dollars in sales were lost that day and, no doubt, three days later on Easter Monday. Just brilliant thinking on the part of Ontariario's politicians, civil servants and unions.

[GrumpyOldFart mode]
A further bit of thread creep: why the hell do airports have to be named after has-been or never-were politicians and celebrities? That day I flew to 'Pearson' via 'Stanfield' and 'Trudeau' - absolutely fecking stupid. What do those names - or McCarran, or John Wayne, or countless others - mean to anyone from outside the immediate area?

Of course it comes down to money. After 7 years of reckless socialist spending under David Miller; the bike lanes, the car registration taxes, the plastic shopping bag fees, the land transfer fees, useless "light rail transport" AKA 18th century streetcars, etc. etc. Rob Ford shows up and says "no more gravy train". I will repeal the car registration tax, I will get rid of the plastic bag fee, I will get rid of bike lanes, I will build subways instead of streetcars that block traffic. I will slash the councillors' budget so they can't give themselves going away parties and such.

Who do you think the majority of the voters picked. Yes he is fat and he is crude, and turns out he is sometimes drunk, and even smoked some crack. I will take him over a 1,000 lefty slick talking politicians dead sober.

Oh, and BTW he has not been charged with anything while we have at least one councillor who was charged with drunk driving, pleaded guilty, and now has a criminal record. Can you guess on which side of the political divide she stands on?
