Rob Ford Claims He Could Have Won Election

rob_fordJohn Tory says former Mayor Rob Ford’s claim he could have won the election is like saying the Leafs would win Cup if they had extra players & time.

What a great analogy.

Rob Ford claims he could have won the election is like … saying the dinosaurs would still be around if they had dodged the asteroid.

Rob Ford claims he could have won the election is like … saying the Titanic would still be around if it had missed that iceberg.

Rob Ford claims he could have won the election is like … well you get the gist. Rob Ford’s claim he would have won the election is bullshit.

Rob Ford – Twisting words to suit his own needs

“I didn’t lose to him,” Ford said in a radio interview this week. Ford is a master manipulator of words. Technically, he didn’t lose the election to Tory as Ford decided to opt out of the race before it was over. He conceded the race but didn’t lose it. If you quit, you can’t really lose. He conceded because of his health issue which also came to the surface just as another crack cocaine video was coming to the surface.

Even if he had stuck around, the chances of his winning the election were not good. He saw that and him and his family played out the chess game of who’s running where.

Oh, oh, wait I came up with one more! Rob Ford claims he could have won the election is like … saying he saved us a billion dollars.

Just because you say it doesn’t make it the truth. Ford never was good at the truth. Remember Ford denying smoking crack?  He claims it was because the media didn’t ask the right questions. It will be interesting to see what happens when Ford has to testify at Sandro Lisi’s upcoming extortion trial. Will he be able to tell the truth under oath or will he obfuscate it like he did during his conflict of interest trial? Unfortunately we are stuck with this clown and his three ring circus.


Mike Returns returns … sounds a bit like “Batman Returns”. I’m no Dark Knight though, just a simple blogger who is returning to the roots of blogging. Some of you may remember me as newmediaMike. newmediaMike is still my online persona, returnsmy blog at is in a “coma”. The SQL database for newmediaMike is full and I am unable to export it to a new larger database. So if you or anyone you know has the knowledge to assist me I would greatly appreciate it so I can get back up and running.

But that’s not the only reason I am returning to blogging as newmediaMike was my search marketing expert blog where I blogged about search marketing. My life today is more than search marketing; today my life is full and rich with a variety of experiences other than work.

I’ve decided to make my personal blog of thoughts, ideas, experiences, ups, downs and curves of life. I’ll be staying away from technology and marketing topics as much as possible as that is what is for. Instead, I’ll be sharing my opinions on everything from politics, commuting on the TTC, news, cars (one of my favourite subjects!) and travelling. Some posts will be off the cuff as I will be using the WordPress Mobile app, and some will be from the a list of blog posts I’ve wanted to publish for some time now that I am sure will be entertaining, informative and amusing.

Since I am still a search marketing expert, I won’t be able to completely leave search marketing out of the mix, so there will also be a few cross domain experiments with re-posting content from newmediaMike to this blog. I may even throw in a couple of video blogs. As the tagline for this blog says, “A little from column A and a little from column B”.
