The end(?) videos

Friday, May 28, 2010

[Posted by Barton Lorimor]

* Contrast to the last couple of days, the Capitol is quiet today after the Senate adjourned without voting on the pension bonding bill. President Cullerton restated last night that the votes to pass the bill were just not there…


* Leader Cross said he does not consider this session a victory for Republicans given that the pension bonding bill is struggling in the Senate. Have a look…


* Speaker Madigan spoke to reporters after the House adjourned Wednesday. Here are those videos in case they were missed…

Part 1

Part 2

* Sen. Brady held his own presser last night and went to work on Gov. Quinn for the McPier amendatory veto and the Democrats for trying to borrow the $3.7 billion pension payment. Reporters also tried to get the Bloomington Republican to reveal more details of where he would cut from the budget. Brady again stressed his belief the state could save a good chunk of change by auditing the Medicaid system. The presser is below in three parts.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

* Leader Radogno joined Brady in calling for a Medicaid audit…

    Brady clearly thinks he can sandbag to November on the biggest issue in the state and the biggest problem the next governor will face.

    He should take a page from Nixon in ‘68 and say he has a secret plan to balance the budget.

    “No safety or surprise, the end.”

    It’s a Doors kind of day.

    Leader Radogno joined Brady in calling for a Medicaid audit.

    That is a good move. Most voters agree with this. It is easy to sell and understand. It questions first the folks and the system most voters feel is too generous. It is an easy call to support. Candidates have to recognize that pulling in supporters is easier if they feel that doing so publically won’t make them look ideological. This move works in that direction.

    Rodogno’s support, as is the support of other GOP leaders - including Jim Edgar - also deflects criticisms from the status quo that Brady can’t go it alone, or had no plans. By uniting the GOP over Brady’s candidacy and rubber-stamping his supposed budget solutions, Brady appears more leader-like, appears to actually have a plan, and has the support of more popular, centrist leaders.

    Brady can sandbag this, by not appearing to sandbag it. That is what every candidate does.

    What Quinn has to do is attack Brady on ideology, because that is the only place where Brady is weak, where and voters are willing to listen. Going after Brady over his lack of budget plans won’t do it, in my opinion, because voters are innoculated over the budget as presented by the status quo. Voters have to be drawn against Brady by his political positions in the past, and Quinn is going to have to make this the focus of the campaign. Quinn has struck out over the budget, so his criticisms regarding Brady are not credible enough to be a winner on this issue.

    Brady still needs lots of work with his PR skills. I’d him away over the long weekend with some PR consultants to work on his delivery and substance.


  5. - Park - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 9:13 am:

    Brady can certainly win with unspecified “hope” and “Change” references Obviously there’s only one solution…tax increases, with as many cuts as is reasonably possible. But why say it if you don’t have to? Just say ‘no taxes until all programs reviewed and cuts made…blah blah blah’ He can win with that, the Blago trial, and Quinn’s almost-certain-to-happen future blunders.

    Everyone have a great memorial day weekend!

    I thought his performance was significantly better than when he was on Chicago Tonight recently. On that show, he seemed to be trying to ingratiate himself with Carol Marin—hardly gubernatorial. So maybe he has already been taking lessons. He should keep them up, add more facts and figures, watch some (Bill)Clinton and Obama press conference tapes. Clinton is still be best and it’s because you really believe he has studied all these issues and knows a lot about them. In fact, he probably had. Not sure one could say the same about either candidate.

    Meanwhile, where was the new campaign manager when the Teamsters bellied up with that $75k right before the McPier vote. Evidently the Teamsters believe pay to play is still in effect. They could be right–they’ve been around long enough. Brady is right to make it an issue. And it should give us all pause.

    When is the legislature going to put issues of public policy above partisanship? I am a moderate. I have never voted a straight ticket in my life, The Democrats seem to have a plan. I want to see the Republican plan. I realize borrowing is not a Utopian solution! Please give me another solution.


  8. - 47th Ward - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:41 am:

    Rich, I note the “?” in Barton’s headline about the end of session. Does this mean your hair/beard keeps growing?

    Sorry to hear about the tooth. But are you sure it’s not an ingrown beard hair? And how could you tell your face was swollen this morning? From the WTTW interview, it was hard to tell you even had a face under that shaggy beard.

    Thanks for the nonstop coverage this week. Top notch as always, and very much appreciated. Enjoy the long weekend, take your meds and feel better.


  9. - Pot calling kettle - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:00 am:

    I love how Madigan complains that the Republicans are in campaign mode/plan. (As if he is shocked, shocked! that there is gambling at Rick’s.) I’m glad Madigan doesn’t play that way or nothing would get done.


  10. - ShadyBillBrady - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:14 am:

    The most entertaining parts of watching the Bill Brady pressers might be watching Cross and Radogno. It looks like it’s as painful for them to watch and listen as it is for us. Either that, or they were looking down at their Shady Bill Brady BINGO cards:
    “Pay to Play”
    “Blagojevich/Quinn”
    “The backs of our children and grandchildren”
    “Like familes and businesses”
    BINGO!
