He needs to check himself in - and face up to the truth. He has serious addiction problems.

Is it just me, or does not this guy have the perfect name to be the head of the United Auto Workers should he lose his gig as Toronto mayor?

So, who is 0bama going to beat up on in an upcoming video clip? Pelosi? Reid?

Odds are greater than nil that 0bama melts down soon.

I wonder that he was able to hide his pretty major problems for so long.

This guy is the Chris Farley of politics. Why do they want to go through the trouble of kicking him out of office? Just wait till he ODs. Won’t be a long wait.

Ford needs to resign right now. He's turning into bad soap opera only worthy of a supermarket tabloid. (shaking head)

I would prefer and entire government of clowns like Rob Ford who speak the truth and don’t deny they are clowns than a government of clowns who lie and deny they are clowns.

I fail to see an “attack” in the video. Rather, it appears to be a boorish bump...

I agree. Guy needs to go, but this bump isn’t the “attack” I was expecting from the headline.

Why doesn’t this fool move to the US, become a DIMocRAT and become the mayor of a large city? He’d fit right in.

True but evidently he was trying to get to someone in the gallery and ran over this woman in the process. She did however do a good job of blocking the tackle but he almost pulled a face mask penalty.

It’s a shame that Ford has turned into such a personal disaster because from a policy standpoint he’s been far better than his leftist predecessors or anyone waiting in the wings to replace him. As much as I appreciate his efforts to keep Toronto’s finances in order, I’m not going to pull a “our guy right or wrong” card and justify his use of illegal drugs, public drunkenness and other obnoxious behaviour. Toronto can do better. Unfortunately, it can also do much worse.

I agree, if you look at the video, it seems he was going after someone past her and bumped her. He made a nice catch and backed himself up after realizing what he did. So was he going after someone else?...I bet that someone else in the crowd will not say a word so it looks like he was going after this lady.
Hey Mr Mayor, was that intentional or just an accident?

All I am certain of is this....CNN is giving more coverage to Rob Ford than all the Obama scandals combined

This Chris Farley major is great. I’m sick of all those smug Toronto citizens ever pontificating about superior culture, medical coverage and political courage. Ha!

“So was he going after someone else?”

I agree. It looked to me like he was focused on someone else and rushing to get in the face of that other person, who is not in the video screen. He didn’t even seem to notice the lady he ran into until she started to fall down. Even when he caught her, he wasn’t really focused on her, at all.

The word “shame” should be deleted from Webster’s. It seems to be no longer a valid word when it comes to politicians.

I saw it live. He bumped into her accidentally. But naturally, that means he “attacked her.”

Without appearing to approve of Ford's antics, fair is fair and what happened should not be misdescribed.

Ford was rushing aroud in the council chambers and accidentaly bumped into the lady, knocking he off her feet.

He caught her and helped her upright, thereby stopping her from falling into the council furnishings and getting injured.
