If You Can't Run a Meeting, How Could You Possibly Run a City?

That is a question everyone should be asking mayoral candidate John Cranley after watching this video below from 2001 when he was a member of Cincinnati City Council and was the Chairman of the Law and Public Safety Committee.


  1. I expected to see something that was an indictment of Cranley but instead I saw a reasonable and prudent person facing down an angry mob just about as best as he could. What do you expect he should have done? Is it his fault the mic's stopped working too? I get that you don't like the guy but you are not going about it in a rational way. At this rate you may come unhinged if he wins - and I believe there is a good shot that he does. From what I have seen so far he wants it more than Qualls and is working harder than her. Though it is still quite early in the race.

  2. Josh,

    A leader would have dealt with that crowd. He did not and does not have the skills to lead in a tough situation. He let the meeting get out of hand and along Luken and the police chief, made it worse.

  3. Bravely bold 'lil John Cranley
    Rode forth from Price Hill
    He was not afraid to die
    Oh Brave 'lil John Cranley
    He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways
    Brave, Brave, Brave Brave 'lil John Cranley.

    He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp
    Or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken
    To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
    And his limbs all hacked and mangled, Brave 'lil John Cranley.

    Brave 'lil John Cranley ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger rears it's ugly head
    He bravely turned his tail and fled.
    Yes Brave 'lil John Cranley turned about
    He gallantly chickened out.

    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat.
    Oh bravest of the brave, 'lil John Cranley.
