RON HART: Politics better in a stupor than sober

Published: Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 04:35 PM.

Ford’s popularity increased during these scandals. People seem to like candor, lower taxes and fewer regulations. Rob Ford has done a good fiscal job of making government less costly.

People will look beyond some boorish personal behavior; in some small way, this explains why Chris Christie is popular.

Contrast him with our president — a debonair huckster, a finely tailored empty suit who always blames others. Obama raises taxes, wastes our money and incompetently manages our bloated government.

He has already sealed Ford’s fate by telling the people of Toronto, "If you like your mayor, you can keep your mayor — period.” So it’s just a matter of weeks until Ford is replaced with a more expensive mayor of Obama’s choosing that no one likes or wants.
