Gotta love it when politicians use the "I was drunk defense". Ok, so while you were on duty you did something illegal/immoral/etc....and were supposed to be happy with you and ok with it since you only did it because you were under the influence?

I guess that beats the "wide stance" excuse Larry Craig used. Tell me again how anyone can have a wide stance with their pants down? :huh:

They claim he has an higher approval rating than Obama.


From http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2014/01/02/22146143-oh-canada-rob-ford-makes-good-on-threat-to-run-again?lite=



As scandal has mounted, Ford has defiantly*refused to step down*and insisted he would make a bid for a second term, displaying the kind of*political perseverance*not seen since over-exposed ex-congressman Anthony Weiner tried to become mayor of New York last year.
And why not? Even as he became the butt of every late-night TV monologue, Ford's approval rating among Toronto voters was 42 percent — one notch higher than President Obama's rating.

What's new? Obama, Dubya, Clinton all known drug users. My guess is there are more politicians that do than don't.
Don't forget the rumors about JFK

from www.feralhouse.com

We just got through reading and absorbing a fascinating new book, Mary‘s Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace. Author Peter Janney knows the story first hand, being the son of a leading CIA operative bearing the unusual name Wistar. Photographs reveal that the Janney family were close with the Meyer family: CIA leader Cord and his Vassar-educated beauty of a wife, Mary.

The more that Cord Meyer dropped his early writerly ambitions to serve powermonger CIA leader James Jesus Angleton, the more his marriage to Mary failed. Mary began to focus on her peace initiatives, which included sexually-charged sessions with Timothy Leary, from whom she obtained LSD for the purpose of creating acid love sessions with old school chum Jack Kennedy. Apparently the president’s acid sessions inspired him to put forward peace overtures to the Soviet Union, which of course were hated by military-industrial warmongers, hastening the plots to off the widely despised President Kennedy.

If things weren’t bad enough, happy doctors visited the white house, injecting amphetamines and opiates into the president’s body, while prostitutes, mobster girlfriends and Mary Meyer, the wife of a major CIA operative came to the White House for sexual dalliances.

Less than a year after Prez Kennedy’s assassination, CIA leader Angleton personally stole Mary Meyer’s diary from her house following her murder, which was unsuccessfully blamed on a nearly retarded black man in the area.

God, what a story. A highly recommended book.

I really can't see how he could win after the events of this past year. Every one of his most trusted political advisers has quit and he does not seem to have a single political ally left. Don't confuse popularity in the media with desirability as an elected political leader. Toronto city council unanimously stripped him of his powers when he would not resign. It would be like electing a Kardashian or Paris Hilton to a serious leadership position. A recent Canadian TV poll had him as the most disrespected/ridiculed/disliked Canadian of 2013. I really can't see how any Toronto resident who has followed the news could cast a vote for him now. A see him more as a future star of his own reality TV show.

He was initially elected before the present events because he came from outside the traditional political establishment that had corrupted city hall for many years.

He was able to get rid of (I believe) a BILLION $ deficit run up by preceding corrupt politicians, and the people KNOW and APPRECIATE that! That is why I believe he'll be re-elected.

Don't believe the hype. Do more research. Consorting with gang members, hanging around with criminals, smoking crack, lying to police, etc. while espousing "a get tough on crime" agenda is a form of moral corruption unto its own. Would you want a mayor, who can't stay sober, even during important public events, making legislative decisions. They say you should not drink and drive, what about drink and legislate?

Sadly he is a guy with a major, out of control, drinking problem who is unable to admit he has a problem. He could have made a public admission, resigned, entered rehab, and perhaps come back to politics in a few years, but it is too late for that now.
