Rutherford initiates online buzz, but will wait until January to announce

Monday, Dec 3, 2012

* From Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s campaign website

* The Tribune noticed

Rutherford, 57, of Chenoa, said the use of his web site, Facebook and Twitter was not a formal announcement.

“I’ve had a lot of people say you ought to be in. And if people want to sign up and show their support, that would help me evaluate,” Rutherford said. “It was posted on a Sunday morning, but within nine minutes on a Sunday morning, 40 people signed up.”

Rutherford said that after hard-fought contests for president, Congress and the state legislature last month, he believed Illinois citizens aren’t ready for another campaign to begin. Instead, he indicated any formal announcement would occur after the Jan. 21 presidential inaugural festivities in Washington.

* As always, Rutherford is actively participating in the online discussion. For example, under a Facebook photo he posted of the Naperville Area Republican Women Organization holiday party we see this comment

Who was the one person to “like” the comment? Well, of course you already know…

* And he’s been retweeting positive messages

* Also, I just can’t help myself. I have to post this recent Rutherford Facebook photo

The Treasurer’s caption

Tide Stick got me through the spot on the tie today, but later that night I knew the spot was still there. I had to go at it again. Have you ever spotted and needed to Tide?

Your caption?

    “No matter how much I try, this Republican Party stain will NOT come out.”

  2. - John A Logan - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:27 am:

    - The Tide Pen is mightier than the sword.

    - I am Dan Rutherford, and you are not Dan Rutherford. If you were Dan Rutherford, then
    you would already have one of these Pens.
    I am Dan Rutherford, and I approved this message.

    - Obviously the tie is not from the Rickey Hendon collection.

    Gubernatorial hopeful Dan Rutherford gets in shape for the long campaign by autographing his own tie.

  4. - Formerly Known As... - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:28 am:

    Cleaning up the state one step at a time.

  5. - Anonymous - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:29 am:

    No; really. I WANT to be governor. I can act goofy too. That IS a qualification, isn’t it in IL?

  6. - Sunshine - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:31 am:

    Wonder if this will clean up words that accidently fall out of my mouth?

  7. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:31 am:

    If …

    If… If you are running for Governor, you must start … TODAY … cataloging every tweet and facebook post be Rutherford, if you haven’t already.

    This is MANDATORY! “The Facebook” and “The Twitter” always come back to haunt, and @RutherfordDan is Pure Gold. If you are @RutherfordDan, ’s opponent, start, yesterday, to catalog every “Pontiac” day, every “travel” Day, every “Not at taxpayers expense” Tweet.

    You can make the case of @RutherfordDan, ’s, manner of a lax, hands-off, public servant, who… has seen more movies than Roger Ebert, and… has run more miles than Forrest Gump!

    Now throw in the SS# fiasco, now throw in the other Bright Start blunders, now throw in the “re-branding” of iCash and the COST … all the while on “The Twitter”

    To the Caption - @RutherfordDan - I had to wipe the drool that went down my shirt when looking at Drapes for the Governor’s Mansion! #NeverConfuseActivyForAchievement

  8. - Skeeter - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:32 am:

    And I will call this tie “Betsy.”

  9. - Boone's is Back - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:34 am:

    “I’m running out of live-action shots. First the toliet bowl clean-up, now the tie-stain removal. It’s going to be a struggle to keep this going.”

  10. - walkinfool - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:34 am:

    Dan’s been using his current job, and its communications pieces, to run for Governor, since the day he took office. He’s been shameless about it. (Surpassing even Alexi.)

    He badmouthed the state to rating agencies for purely political purposes.

    Unlike JBT, he has done little to help fix the state in his current job.

    He’s a personable and experienced man. I expected much more of him these last two years.

  11. - walkinfool - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:39 am:

    Sorry, the caption:

    “Rutherford, solves the big problems.”.

  12. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:42 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I got that stain from watching someone change Pongee’s oil. It’s not the oil that splattered, it’s mustard. #DanTweetsOthersHardWorkToClaim

    @FakeRutherfordDan - That Who is yelling so loud I can hear him! Horton was an “elephant” too, you know. #TheDrSeussCandidate

    @FakeRutherfordDan - The stain on the Tie looked like Mitt Romney, so now it isn’t as cool. #SignsFromAboveAreSometimesJustStains

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I chose this picture today because picking lint off my sportcoat is too random. #LookAtMeLookAtMeLookAtMe

    @FakeRutherfordDan - This is how the ILDems will treat me as the GOP Nominee. #MoreVotesEqualsStainRemover

    @FakeRutherfordDan - If you think the stain on my tie is bad, you should see the lunch I spilled on my treadmilll! #GreatForOfficeMoraleTalkingMoviesDuringWork

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Image is everything, and a stain tells quite a bit about how well I am doing. #ObliviousOfMyOwnPerception

  13. - BrianG - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:44 am:

    “I hope Fran Eaton doesn’t make a big deal about being fastidious about my appearance.”

    In Peoria, the always boosterish Journal Star is pushing Aaron Schock on the basis of racking up 74% of the vote against perennial punching bag Steve Waterworth.

  14. - Joe McCarthy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:45 am:

    George Ryan gave me this tie. Out, damned spot!

  15. - OneMan - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:49 am:

    The result of being the only known Republican outside of county to attend who ended up getting some of the tasty on my tie.

  16. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:51 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I like to sing when fixing stains, “this is the way we fix the mess, fix the mess, fix the mess…” #TiesfirstStateSecond

    @FakeRutherfordDad - I wish my campaign staff would stop with the Secret Messages. Using that de-coding stick is tedious #AskMeIfIThinkIAmImportant

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Next Time, iCash Lunches will NOT include soup. #RebrandingIsZeroCostHonest

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I wish I can be humble and show people my humbleness. Thank goodness for Twitter. #ReadInstructionsBeforeTweeting

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Fixing this stain so Staff won’t be jealous I was goofing off again and spilled Nickeolodeon “Slime” on my tie again. #ThoughThatToySlimeDidNotStain

    @FakeRutherfordDan - If I just fix it around the edges, and add a sweeping fix along the middle, it looks like me! #ImNotSelfAbsorbedToAFault

  17. - siriusly - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 10:51 am:

    This is my lucky “state paid for mailing to GOP donors” tie, I need it cleaned!

    Dan Rutheford “likes” himself. Shocker.

    @FakeRutherfordDan - One thing I will not miss is picking out my own ties when governor. A valet is worth his weight in gold. #TheTrappingsOfOfficeIsntMeHonest

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I need to be less Pat Quinn and more Tom Cross #GolfShirtsNeedNoTies

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I always fix stains on my tie in front of a blank wall with a camera around, just like all of you #ReallyYouThinkThisIsStaged

    Oswego Qilly - can we get a @FakePatQuinn sometime in the near future? That seems ripe for hilarity.

  31. - Formerly Known As... - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 11:56 am:

    Qilly = Willy. Perhaps a @FakeOswego”Q”illy now as well?

  32. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 12:01 pm:

    I would love to have @FakePatQuinn, but in context.

    Having @FakePatQuinn is not the same as mocking @RutherfordDan or @JasonPlummer, because in contect of both Dan and Jason’s tweeting, the mocking is so much easier.

    Seems funnier in the moment, like Squeezy the Python. You can’t make that stuff up, like you can’t make up Dan’s and Jason’s Tweets.

    When “The Twitter” allows for @FakePatQuin mockability, it will come out. That I can promise. I take no responsiblity if its good …

    @FakeOswegoWilly - Hope that helped #IfIHaveToExplainMyHumorImNotThat funny

    For what it’s worth, the allegedly Most Unpopular Governor in the United States was quite popular Saturday night as he took in the Fenwick-Oak Park boy’s basketball game at the fieldhouse on Linden.

    The place was packed and a lot of folks of all ages and persuasions took the time to approach him, shake hands and get their pictures taken.

    He seemed to enjoy it quite a bit, as he must have the solid (and rare) Fenwick victory over Oak Park.

  34. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 3, 12 @ 12:17 pm:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - today is Stop the In’Stain’ity Saturday. Get your ties and fix those stains. #YoureWelcome

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I tried to get 1000 “likes” for the my stained tie and Pongee got real mad. Gotta make this “right” for my Pal Pongee. #MakingPongeeStuffUpIsHarderThanBeingTreasurer

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I saw this on YouTube. If you fix a tie stain and make a wish, your dream will come true #YouCantLieOnTheInternet

    - Has no wife or children

    - Possibly too boring to be governor

    Asked how well he thinks his new business will do in its first year, he was quoted as saying: “Well, the Department of Labor says it can’t be off-shored, so once I get my advanced degree, I should still have a job next year.”

  52. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Dec 4, 12 @ 12:12 am:

    He then added: “It was either this or running for public office, which doesn’t need the advanced degree.”
