Question of the day

Wednesday, Mar 12, 2014

* From a Doug Truax e-mail entitled “Greetings from Florida”…

No, I am not in Florida.

But you know who is? My Republican primary opponent: Jim Oberweis.

While Oberweis is vacationing in the sun; I am criscrossing Illinois talking with voters about the importance of this election and the issues at hand.

If elected I will always put Illinois families first. You won’t have to worry about whether your Senator is busy vacationing in a different state or even VOTING in a different state (you can’t even make this up - Jim Oberweis’ wife is registered to vote in Florida NOT Illinois).

The accompanying photo…

* The Question: Caption?

    Florida: Where the ice cream melts just a little quicker.


  2. - Upon Further Review - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 1:44 pm:

    Best play of the election by Truax! May be too late.

    Last time I tell the milkman to stop deliveries because I am going to be in Florida.

  5. - Cheswick - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 1:51 pm:

    Only thing worse than a ghost payroller is a ghost politician.

    (Also, good on Truax for jumping on this!)


  6. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 1:52 pm:

    The Oberweis campaign goes South before the primary instead of after the primary as expected.


  7. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 1:54 pm:

    “Hey Doug,

    The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful!

    Seriously, I heard it snowed again last night. Why does anyone stay there in winter when they could have a million dollar condo in Bonita?

    Anyway, a Cuba Libre is calling my name. Be a pal and go out to Sugar Grove and shovel my driveway, will ya? There’s a gallon of 2% in it for you!

    Bad luck on Tuesday,

    Jim”


  8. - Worth It - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 1:58 pm:

    Nicely done Ron Burgundy.


  9. - dupage dan - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:01 pm:

    Oberweis knows in his heart of hearts he ain’t got a chance in November so why worry about the primary, which he has in the bag? He’s like a dog chasing after a car. Wouldn’t know what to do if he caught it. His record as a legislator is proof of that.


  10. - A guy... - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:03 pm:

    Jim Early Voted.

  13. - LincolnLounger - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:13 pm:

    You’d hightail it to Florida, too, if everytime you were in the same room with your opponent you lost another straw poll.

    Since his wife is registered in Florida, he can’t actually lose any votes.


  14. - CLJ - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:13 pm:

    Oberweis goes home to wait for election results.


  15. - Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:15 pm:

    My legislator is off vacationing in Florida,
    and all I got was this lousy postcard.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:15 pm:

    “To my Springfield Secretary,

    Quit slacking!

    Jim”

    Oberweis! A Minstrel Show Song!

    Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
    Far, far away,
    Dere’s wha my fortune is turning ebber,
    Dere’s wha de old voters say.
    All up and down de whole Illinoyz
    Sadly I don’t roam,
    But still longing for a public office,
    That I kin call my own!

    Politically I am sad and dreary,
    Eb-rytime I campaign;
    Oh, voters, how my heart grows weary,
    Far from de old snows at home!

    All round de dairy farm I wandered
    When I was young,
    Den many happy days I was a-squeezin’,
    All da udders that was hung.
    When I was playing wid my money
    Happy was I;
    Oh, help me voters to discover
    How to all the manure I spy.

    One little condo among de beaches,
    One dat I love
    Still sadly to my memory breaches,
    When in Illinois I drove.
    When will I see de thongs a-rubbin’
    All round de pool?
    When will I see my funders a-grubbin’,
    Better than any home-school?

    Orange whip?


  20. - Stones - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:23 pm:

    It would be a more effective ad if he used a photo of Oberweis with a better tan.


  21. - Just a Reader - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

    You campaign where your voters are.


  22. - Formerly Known As... - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:31 pm:

    Great work and quick response by Truax.

    Whomever wins the Republican nomination needs to send similar postcards like this regarding Vallas.

    “Greetings from Connecticut”, complete with pictures of their seaside and other tourist attractions, lol


  23. - Titus Lucretius Carus - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:34 pm:

    Hmmm, I just checked his website and he’s still got events listed for this week… That means he must’ve missed Monday night’s Downers Grove Republican Organization Monthly Meeting; and then last night was the Lake County Republican Federation’s 52nd Annual Spring Gala, which apparently he skipped; This morning he had the Rock Island County Republicans Breakfast Club… I just hope he’s back in time for Friday’s Catholic Citizens of Illinois Lunch at the Union League Club, not to mention Saturday’s Hamilton County Lincoln Day Dinner in McLeansboro and Sunday’s Hancock County Lincoln Day Dinner in Nauvoo (who knew that different counties apparently hold ‘Lincoln Day’ on different days?).

    I sure hope his aides called in and let them all know he wouldn’t be attending… I guess his social media director is on vacation too though since his website isn’t updated…


  24. - Amuzing Myself - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:34 pm:

    Republicans deserve Oberweis if they don’t take advantage of the opportunity to vote for someone else - anyone else! That Truax is a good candidate is gravy.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:51 pm:

    “Chicago, Sugar Grove ooo I wanna leave you
    Westchester, Glen Carbon, I just haveta leave ya
    Cook County, Monteno, voters I had to go
    Florida…”

    Loves the Florida Sun
    There’s a “guy” called Oberweis
    That’s where he wants go to get away from it all
    Bodies in the sand
    Tropical drink melting in his hand
    He’ll be falling in love
    To the rhythm of a Ro-Bo Calls
    Our “guy” Oberweis

    Ooo I wanna leave you like Our Oberweis
    I’d get there fast
    And then I’d take it slow
    That’s where we wanna go
    Way down with Oberweis

    Obie looks out to sea
    And he’ll perfect his lil bumbling
    By and by he’ll defy a little bit of sanity
    Afternoon delight
    Cocktails and laughs alright
    That dreamy look in his eyes
    Give him a tropical election high
    Way down with Oberweis

    Everybody knows
    A little fake like Oberweis
    Now if you wanna go
    And get away from it all
    Go down with Oberweis

    “Chicago, Sugar Grove ooo I wanna leave you
    Westchester, Glen Carbon, I just haveta leave ya
    Cook County, Monteno, voters I had to go”

    Ooo I wanna take you down with Oberweis
    We’ll get there fast
    And then we’ll take it slow
    That’s where we wanna go
    Way down with Oberweis


  26. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:57 pm:

    @FNA-

    The Rauner is not going to take a breath to go after Vallas when they have Quinn in the crosshairs.


  27. - Mittuns - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 2:58 pm:

    Under the Florida sun, Oberweis enjoys a tall glass .01% milk.


  28. - Mittuns - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    Oberweis corners the Vitamin D market.

    I’ve got sunshine in a bottle…


  29. - Right Field - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 3:05 pm:

    “Got Orange Juice?”


  30. - Louis Howe - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    Unbelievable!!! I guess spending time in Florida is worth more than the few million he’s spent running for office. Oberweis is definitely not the founder of his family company, but his actions give new credence to the old adage “from shirt sleeves to shirt sleeves in three generations.”


  31. - A guy... - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 3:12 pm:

    The timing looks bad, but hey, I had to meet with my wife’s tax preparer.

    David Jolly the Republican beat Alex Sink the Democrat, in the special U.S. House Rep. race yesterday, in the Tampa area. The state leans Republican.

  41. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 3:58 pm:

    It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
    When I try to explain why I left
    That I still need your love after all that I’ve left
    You won’t believe me
    All you will see is a man you know well
    Although he’s dressed up for the beach
    At six and seven, “for drinks”
    I had to let it happen, I had to leave
    Couldn’t stay all my life in long sleeves
    Looking out of the window, staying out in the sun
    So I chose ‘Vay-Cay’
    Running around trying everything new
    But nothing impressed me at all
    I never expected it to

    Don’t cry for me Primary voters
    The truth is I never left you
    All through these wild days
    My mad existence
    I kept my promise
    I’ll keep my distance
    And as for fortune, and as for fame
    I always invited them in
    Though it known to the world they were all I desired
    They soothe my ego
    They are not the solutions they promised to be
    The answer was here all the time
    I love you and hope you love me
    Don’t cry for me Primary voters…

    Don’t cry for me Primary voters
    The truth is I never left you
    All through these wild days
    My mad existence
    I kept my promise
    I’ll keep my distance
    Have I said too much? There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you
    But all you have to do is look at me to know that every word’s untrue


  42. - Titus Lucretius Carus - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    W/r/t to Anonymous’ David Jolly citation;

    Florida’s 13th District seat has been held by a Republican since 1983 (after being redrawn in redistricting, allowing Connie Mack to win because the old Rep was pushed out of the district)…

    Anyone trying to cite yesterday’s special election win by the GOP as some sort of bellweather is, quite simply, wrong… If anything, the fact that the Dems made it a competitive race says much more than the Republican win there…


  43. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Where’s Waldo?”


  44. - Nearly Normal - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 4:22 pm:

    I Googled Jim Oberweis Florida and found that he is a chess player and active in a chess club. So, maybe he had to fly down to play a few games to keep his ranking!


  45. - DuPage Dave - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 4:41 pm:

    Oberweis continues his never-ending search for illegal immigrants to fill Soldier Field…


  46. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 5:14 pm:

    Titus, Good Democratic spin!


  47. - Waldi - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 5:15 pm:

    I just wish Oberweis would stay in Florida.

  53. - T.J. - Wednesday, Mar 12, 14 @ 10:36 pm:

    Has Truax made any argument for himself, or just “LOL Oberweis”? I realize “LOL Oberweis” is enough here, but not necessarily in a Republican primary.


  54. - justsayin' - Thursday, Mar 13, 14 @ 7:45 am:

    I Doug Truax pledge to never take a vacation - at least until I win the primary.
