Rauner breaks radio silence

Friday, May 30, 2014

* From a press release…

Bruce Rauner Statement on State Budget

Bruce Rauner issued the following statement regarding passage of the phony state budget:

“We learned a number of very telling things today. One, the massive job-destroying 67% Quinn-Madigan tax increase that has robbed the average worker of more than $1,000 every year is rejected by a strong bipartisan majority. At the same time, the politicians in charge of Springfield again refused to make the structural reforms needed to fix state government. Instead, they passed the same type of broken, dishonest budget that career politicians in Illinois have been passing for years. This phony budget is an unsurprising, yet tragic, conclusion to five years of failure under Pat Quinn. It’s time to shake up Springfield.”

    Shake up? Make mine lemon please.

    Mmmmm, lemon shake up.

    A lemon shakeup does sound good….

    Brucey, if you want to shake up Springfield at least tell us how. Sheesh. Even Brady wanted to cut 10% by this point before he didn’t.

    Rauner gets his way on the income tax., yet he refuses to give credit to the Democrats for not extending it.


  6. - the Other Anonymous - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 8:10 pm:

    You’d think a guy as rich as Rauner could afford better seats than in the peanut gallery.


  7. - low level - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 8:15 pm:

    That’s the best you guys at Rauner World can come up with? Say, are they hiring over there? That ad sounds like it was written by a 22 year old just out of college who used the time honored approach of writing everything he knew about a subject as the answer to a question he had no answer for.

    Total fail. Try again, Raunerians.

    Assess: “Rauner gets his way on the income tax., yet he refuses to give credit to the Democrats for not extending it.”

    Gimme a break. No credit due. No tough, honest choices made. Real disappointment. Lack of courage or honesty to either approve the revenue of make the cuts. Sorry, but it’s the responsibility of those in charge, and unfortunately for IL this session was a failure.


  9. - Walker - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 8:33 pm:

    Rauner is personally too smart, I am guessing, to make such a stupid, formulaic statement.

    This one could have been put out by a not-very-smart AI program.


  10. - Pot calling kettle - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 8:33 pm:

    Rauner could have made some real hay by putting out his own budget as a challenge. Of course, that assumes he could balance the budget, keep his spending promises, and not raise taxes…which, he knows he can’t. So, he’s left with a lame ad that has no substance.


  11. - Wensicia - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 8:52 pm:

    Where’s YOUR budget, Rauner?


  12. - dogboy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 9:07 pm:

    Rauner wants to make “structural changes” like pushing old ladies down the stairs, or lowering minimum wageworkers. take home pay. What a joke this billionaire has proven to be.


  13. - Weenie Caucus - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 9:08 pm:

    Meet us at the after session party, Bruce, where GOPers will be celebrating leaving Sfld without having to propose a budget.


  14. - Weenie Caucus - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 9:11 pm:

    We shook up Springfield real good, just like Bruce wanted!


  15. - Frenchie Mendoza - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 9:12 pm:

    Rauner realizes, I hope, he had nothing — absolutely nothing — to do with what happens in Springfield. The guy won a primary by a slim majority, but he’s still a nobody. He’s some business guy with a boatload of money.

    I’d say, “He’s a tool,” but that’s not nice. It’s how I feel. And I can’t take seriously anyone who actually voted for him because he has a position on, well … nothing. But, okay, he won a primary. He has a lot of money. That’s about it.


  16. - LizPhairTax - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 9:23 pm:

    THAT is leadership, people!

    Hmmmm grunted Sir Carhartt to the Jukebox. I need to buy some rights for a campaign theme aong. Something ’bout shaking. Whatcha got?

    You could drop a dime on Jerry Lee Lewis, rasped the Jukebox. “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”

    Hmmmmm, said Sir Carhartt.

    Or you could go for the Isley Brothers doing “Twist and Shout,” hissed the Jukebox. “You know, ’shake it up baby……twist and shout.’

    Nah, it’d have to be the Beatles’ version, if I went for that, said Sir Carhartt.

    Dream on, honked the Box.

    What else you got? demanded Sir Carhartt.

    Well, there’s a Sam Cooke song in here called “Shake” cackled the Box. The Animals did a pretty good cover, if you’d rather have that.

    Forget it, said Sir Carhartt. Nobody knows that one.

    Jukebox took one long last scan. I’ve got it! I’ve got it! the machine finally squealed.

    What? scoffed Carhartt.

    Elvis! Elvis! oinked the Box. “All Shook Up.” Here, I’ll spin it for you!

    Carhartt listened, pondered, then cracked a wide smile.

    Yeah, that’s it. I like it. “I’m your Guv….we’re all shook up.”

    Won’t be cheap, observed the Jukebox. The Presley estate will want big bucks.

    No problem! snickered Sir Carhartt.No problem! Here, here’s a quarter for your trouble!

    But I only take dimes! protested the Jukebox.

    Keep the change! laughed Sir Carhartt.

    Beaming and radiant, Carhartt turned away. That’s it! That’s it! he shouted to no one. I’m your Guv! We’re all shook up!” Mmmm Mmmm Hey! Hey! We’re all shook up!

    I’m outta here.

    And Rauner wants to be our latex salesman?


  19. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 10:11 pm:

    “…”We learned a number of very telling things today. One, the massive snow job of Rauner-Sanguinetti, that has robbed the average voter of a Republican choice this Election year, has rejected a strong Republican majority voters. At the same time, the Campaign Crew in charge of Raunerites again refused to make the structural GOTV headway needed to fix Election Day. Instead, they passed on GOP support for broken-down, dishonest Raunerite rhetoric of 1/3 of the GOP GA in Illinois being corrupt for years. This phony rhetoric is an unsurprising, yet tragic, conclusion to fifteen months of failure under Bruce Rauner and his shaking up and hammering of Illinois. It’s time to wake up Illinois, to the phony Bruce Rauner.”

  20. - VanillaMan - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 10:38 pm:

    This kind of stuff isn’t interesting enough or filled with mistakes enough to give Mr. Quinn much of a handle to use.

    Well Mr. Quinn, tell us why you should be reelect end this time?


  21. - Jeff Trigg - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 10:43 pm:

    Pat Quinn is an incompetent buffoon and Bruce Rauner is a rich jerk. Bring On The Other Candidates. #BOTOC


  22. - Flyer - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 10:47 pm:

    How does he have the nerve to continue to bad mouth when he offers no alternatives. He reminds me of people who don’t vote, then say how terrible their elected officials are.


  23. - Throwing Stones - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 10:56 pm:

    hey, dont be so hard on brucy people this at one time made since to me and i and i jumped on this bandwagon like so many others……. then i turned 14.
