Re: “...and the Backstory (Cohen, Cybill Shepherd, and a Presidential Intercession)

If the truth be known, HF Sr would have succeeded in promoting Jake's candidacy, if some Democrats had not alerted Clinton’s office about what the President was getting ready to step into when he came to support Jr. In fact, the Fords were going to have Jake on the dais with Clinton and Jr, Cohen was just given seats in the audience. Clinton would have appeared to lend his support to the Independent candidate, Jake, who is running a racist, anti Semitic campaign against the elected Democratic candidate for the 9th District, Steve Cohen. This did not happen because Clinton’s office was made aware of the Ford shenanigans and force the Fords to keep Jake off the dais. And neither Jr nor Sr. were to acknowledge Jake as a candidate. Cohen was given front row seats by the President’s staff not by the Fords. In fact, until the bitter end, the Ford people tried to keep Cohen off the front row even as Cohen was trying to be seated. The Ford staff only acquiesced when Clinton’s staff intervened to force the issue. The other Democratic candidates could not be on the dais with the President because Cohen and Ophelia would have to be there as well. This should have been for all Democratic candidates. Jr and the Party would have benefited from such a show of solidarity with his fellow Democratic candidates. One Ford family member was heard telling Cohen that he shouldn’t be there because this was a Ford rally. The Fords were going to use President Clinton to serve their needs not the needs of the Democratic Party. They did not care if they embarrassed the President and certainly do not care about the interest of the local Democratic candidates. It is this very self promotional, total self-absorbed character flaw in the Harold Ford Sr family that may cost HF Jr the election.

Re: “Et YouTube, Brute?

The “new” Ford’s behavior at Wilson Air betrays in Jr. the same “old” Ford's thuggish behavior that is all to frequently seen HF Sr, John, Jake and Isaac. There is no question that Jr is charming and amiable when he gets what he wants. But, let things not go his way he is just another in your face Ford. He let the world see a glimpse of what anger lurks within him. Let’s not be fooled by the “New” Ford. Vote Green and a pox on both Corker and Ford.

Re: “Corker vs. Ford: Who Won the Battle of Wilson Air?

The Corker confrontation shows that just under his veneer of a “new” Ford lays the “old” Ford, the angry in your face behavior seen overtly in John, Sr., Jake and Isaac Ford. HFJr. can be very charming until someone does something that Jr. does not like and out comes Mr. Hyde, the abusive thug that is in many (but certainly not all) of the Ford clan. Just wait and watch his behavior when Jr. looses. Stop the Fords!!! Vote Green!!! Vote Chris Lugo, as an alternative and a protest vote against Jr. and Corker and Bush.
