"In Toronto, even the potholes are embarrassed" - Rex Murphy on the Fordpocalypse
Rex Murphy has more than a few words to say about Here's his Point of View:
"At this stage Mayor Rob Ford is the Starship Enterprise of public buffoonishness. He has gone crudely, foolishly, offensively, where no human mayor has gone before." - Rex Murphy

Rex Murphy describes all what he is...lol
Rex murphy calls on Rob Ford to "Resign, resign again and just to make sure resign a 3rd time. nothing else will do"
When Rex Murphy isn't promoting human killing tarsands, he can do a great opinion piece. Watch his Rob Ford one
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is back at it. He self-checked himself into rehab today... after yet another series of revelations of Ford on a loose-lipped tear, where he was again smoking crack, dissin' Italians, Jews, women and really, really scathing talk about *** ... This might finally be the straw that breaks conservative Toronto voters' backs... Commentator Rex Murphy sums up the insult of it all rather well. Ford's days are, or at least should be, done.
@ Rex Murphy. Fords opposition made him bigger than your people allover US &CA said they feel sorry for him
Rex Murphy just killed Rob Ford, is second guessing for sure
Credit to Rex Murphy who says all that needs to be said on Ford in 3mins unlike rest of wasting entire day on it

Not sure if anyone outside Canada knows Rex Murphy... When he said tonight .."even the Toronto Pot Holes are ashamed of our Mayor"... I got it.
OK I'll admit it... Rex Murphy made me laugh today. RoFo made DoFo cry.😣 .
Total truth: "Resign, resign again, and just to be sure resign a third time. Nothing else will do" - Rex Murphy
I'm going to throw this out... I think that Rob Ford should be given a chance.it pisses me off for the likes of REX MURPHY to no less than call him a sub-human.people are so quick to judge.in MY opinion at least he's getting help...bottom line is if one looks at FACTS ..THIS GUY HAS POLITICAL SAVVY ! This guy has done so much for Toronto regarding jobs ///debt reduction/so much more.everyone has problems.i know that the "smoking crack ? thing is not cool.but finally he has admitted to getting help.AS IF ...he's the only one across NL. AND CANADA MP'S .TO NOT BE DRUGGED UP . i'll keep this short...THIS GUY DOES HIS JOB ! Just look at his record .
If you haven't seen Rex Murphy's take on the Rob Ford saga tonight, this is a good watch.
Are you kidding me Rex Murphy? We're supposed to feel sorry for the biggest enabler & bully DOUG FORD? …
Rex Murphy to Rob Ford - Resign, resign again and resign one more time. Good advice, thanks Rex.
I liked a video from Rex Murphy: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford
As Rex said, " in Toronto now even the potholes are embarrassed". Well said Rex Murphy.
I was so blown away to see Rex Murphy commenting on Rob Ford. Rex Murphy is alive? People watch Rex Murphy?
(Rex Murphy: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford) has been published on Loonie Politics -
Bravo to Rex Murphy (The National) for his honest assessment of the Rob Ford saga..if you get a chance go CBC -The National to hear his intelligent synopsis -no more excuses - he nailed it for who Ford really is and the impact Ford's ignorance has had on so many Canadians.Thank you Rex!

Yes EZ, I know I promised but off to vet & got busy, no no word from any of the Eagle band members, no CBC s Peter Mansbridge must of got panicked & now blocked from contact, & Rex Murphy picks up & listens & says nothing but I see, I see, is this Neil Young, is this a prank call.

More soon, hugs & talk later I promise.
So, in short, if Rex Murphy gets kicked off CBC/forced to disclose, the same has to apply equally to Peter Mansbridge. Good riddance to both
n/n Focusing only on Rex Murphy is textbook discrimination. Peter Mansbridge has given speeches to industry (incl oil) as well. Fair is fair
Enviro-groups are so naive. Calling on Peter Mansbridge to police Rex Murphy et al. is like asking fox to guard henhouse. Wake up enviros!
Hmm ... perhaps we see that Peter Mansbridge isn't an objective judge re Rex Murphy's ties, given Mansbridge's connections, too.
Autosaurus Rex: A story of dinosaurs Should a CBC radio and television commentator be accepting speaking fees for pro-Tar Sands speeches on the side without publicly disclosing the financial conflict of interest to viewers? Should a national newspaper consider--let alone sign--a strategic partnership with the oil industry (a.k.a. Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers) to produce content? Would such a move render the paper a non-news organization? Should it? These two stories emerged over the last week and received almost no attention in the media. There has to be a better explanation than Olympic coverage eating up air time. We’re all familiar with the National Post’s ‘tendencies’ (sorry Terrence) so I wasn’t overly shocked with the latter. But I have to say I was taken aback by the news about Rex Murphy. This week, iPolitics revealed CBC’s Rex Murphy, a commentator on The National and host of CBC Radio’s Cross Country Checkup, has been accepting money from the oil industry in the form ...
Stephen Harper, REX MURPHY, ET AL I will occasionally read Harper hating posts for a morning laugh. At times, I find it entertaining to read hatred from hateful minds. Lately, however, the laughs are subsiding. It's one thing to be critical of one's politicians, but another to wish harm or destruction to another human being simply because you are of an opposing political opinion. To wish them ill displays such a puerile mind that my only explanation to it is human intellectual atrophy. What of his accomplishments? Don't tell me there are none. I have no problem with the citizenry expressing concern, even anger, but when I read people writing that he, Rex Murphy and others should not only be unemployed, but further harmed or dismissed from the world, I know immediately that I'm dealing with minor, vengeful minds.

Doc Emmett Brown and Rex Murphy have never been photographed together. Coincidence?
A friend shared an article called "I stand with Neil," talking about prominent people backing Neil Young's stand on the oil sands. There are some suggestions at the bottom of the posting for more info..one of them being a mind-numbing rant by Ezra Levant. Can people tell me how it got there? I don't mind hearing other opinions--such as Rex Murphy's counter to Young' s comments--but Sun Media?...who is choosing this drivel for me!
Rex Murphy's editorial regarding Neil Young's cheap shot at Alberta oil sands was right on the money. Don't you agree.
I read a Conrad Black piece in the 'National Post' today as I often read Rex Murphy's pieces. I thoroughly enjoy an article from a writer that uses facts.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has gone to court over the Conservative supression of police and court evidence of rape, abuse and torture of children at St. Annes residential school. Too bad Evan Solomon (CBC) thought the story was about me not being nice for saying these crimes were the work of sadists and pedophiles. "Too emotional", he said. Maybe he should ask Rex Murphy what he thinks.
Just heard more on fracking!!! All this media coverage is great, on "Q" CBC1 , Jian Ghomeshi was talking about Rex Murphy's version of the fracking debate in NB. Seems to me that he thinks Rex is wrong too! But i only heard his intro. So Listen in if u can!

WEEKEND ROUNDUP Trouble for the Conservative brand L. Ian MacDonald, writing in the Ottawa Citizen, suggests that Nigel Wright would be the perfect guy to have around to manage the fallout from Nigel Wright’s disastrous decision to write a $90,000 cheque to Senator Mike Duffy. Postmedia’s Michael Den Tandt writes the speech that Stephen Harper should have given on May 26 to address Wright’s and Duffy’s behaviour, albeit “in a hypothetical, alternate universe in which the PM is capable of expressing personal contrition.” Back in the real world, as Rex Murphy observes in the National Post, the affair, and the Conservatives’ reaction to the affair, continues to “imprint a grim image of crony politics on a party, and on a leader, that once had created an appealing image as Ottawa outsiders,” and continues to “pulveriz[e the Conservatives'] long-standing claims to be in touch with the ‘average’ citizen,” for whom $90,000 cheques are rarely so forthcoming in moments of crisis. All road ...
"We have long passed the balance point where satire or mockery can keep pace with their targets. The great Gandalf of twentieth-century journalism, Malcolm Muggeridge, long ago noted that the age we live in has voided the power of satire to castigate it. Our reality is far more absurd than any satirist's imaginings. What Swift could invent Flavor Flav or Nancy Grace? Where is the Moliere who could draw from his mind's own store the daily councils of The View? Larry King probing Sean Penn on the geopolitics of Iraq? One void probing another." From the introduction to Rex Murphy's Canada and Other Matters of Opinion. Well worth the reread!

Kettle island bridge. 8. Do you think deporting that terrorist will send a message? 9. Who should pay off Chris Hatfields telephone bill? 10.Anything else on your mind.

Everyone had smiles on their faces at Smiley’s Mom’s house today in Vidor for the GTDG Sat. Mini. It was cold but the numerous trees stopped most of the wind on the wooded holes. The dangerous creek played part in 5 holes but that didn’t stop Neal Martinez from getting 8 birdies and winning by two strokes to take first place in the open division. Rex Murphy had a strong performance and shot a 56 to win the advanced division by 4 strokes. We had a tie in the Rec division as Blake and J.

In the junior division we also had a tie with R.J. and John both firing a 82, and Gabe was not too far behind with a 87. I counted up the “circles” and there were 34, so we went out of bounds or into the creek 34 times today. Wow. Congratulations to all our winners today, you earned it on this difficult but fun course.
