Ford’s approval rating falls

Posted on May 31st, 2012 Won't you help brighten a lonely comment's day?

Seems Ford’s interaction with Star reporter Daniel Dale made an impression on Torontonians. But not in a good way. And especially not with the folks in his own riding.

The recent spat between the Mayor and Dale appears to have pushed his approval rating down by 14% from about 47% at around this time in April. That’s not saying much considering Ford has conspicuously scraped the bottom of the mayoral popularity barrel since he got into office, but it’s an additional indictment of a man who is not only abdicating the duties of his office but also seems hell-bent on destroying this city by invoking a constantly changing agenda that is only costing taxpayers more by the day.

Hopefully this is the beginning of the erosion of the Conservative power base in this country. Not that I think the Liberal option is necessarily much better, but it’d be a start.

    There’s something else at work in Mr. Ford’s decline: His friends.

    The more Sue-Anne Levy denigrates David Miller with her tiresome “his blondness” squawk, the more inept Rob Ford looks. Why? Because Sue-Anne Levy, despite her intent, keeps reminding Torontonians that they once had a Mayor worthy of the title.

    The more Jerry Agar defends the indefensibe Rob Ford and his ridiculous public behaviour, the more it draws attention to what a buffoon Ford is.

    They should both just shut up about Mr. Ford -much in the same way Rob Ford and his brother (The Mayor And The Spare) should shut the hell up about themselves and stay off the radio. Their program is nothing less than cringe-inducing. It’s so bad it’s almost good. A parade of acolytes, toadies, ass-kissers phoning in to tell His Blondness The 2nd what a great job he’s doing. It’s enough to make your skin crawl.

    Yep…with friends like Sue-Anne Levy and Jerry Agar Mr. Ford has all the enemies he needs. As for Et Tu Doug, well, if I were Mr. Ford I’d keep an especially close eye on my brother.
