47th that sounds like a drinking the wall at O’Malley’s kind of challenge

Thanks for airing it, as so often done by CAP FAX. It surely is NOT ever taken for granted by this humble Commenter.
And I don’t know just why, but somethin’ tells me there’s goin’ to be something DIFFerent, a real “Gotcha on THAT one, Buddy,” or “WOW” Moment in this particular Debate…and likely because a couple of these fellas in particular know that the clock is startin’ to tick REAL fast now to the big day, and when you’re at least a couple to a few runs down in say, oh, the Bottom of the 7th or Top of the 8th, you simply just MUST find a way to “score” some Runs to get back INto it/make it real close/even TIE it somehow…if you can, so you really have to go for broke and bring your “A Game” to the Field, or later, looking back honestly in Defeat, you’ll think that ultimately you really have no one else but yourSELF to blame for falling short…
Rauner is nothing but talking points, even when called on not answering the questions. Rutherford had a decent game tonight; too bad he isn’t int he running any more. Between Dilalrd and Brady, Dillard sounded the more reasonable of the two.
While there is no doubt waste in CMS, there ain’t nowhere near the amount of money Rauner alleges in the CMS budget. And a lot of what is there is money that would have to be spent anyway on the personnel, insurance and property management activities whether CMS existed or not.
I wonder if Rauner knows that Mitch Daniels raised taxes.

RNUG, I caught that. Everyone caught that low-income gaffe. Everyone heard Dillard’s repeated use of “they, them, their” as well. Everyone also heard Brady’s repeated use of “Latino community”. The only one speaking comfortably and authentically about Latinos was the one guy who hasn’t a chance to win. Shame.
Yup. Can appreciate good campaigning even when used against the team.

RNUG, exactly in re CMS. Do away with it, fine. The personnel, healthcare, IT, property, etc. costs are not going anywhere. Further, GRF is a minuscule fraction of the CMS budget-it’s mostly comprised of revolving funds to collect agencies’ share of CMS’ various activities.
–“Pat Quinn has been a massive failure on crime in Illinois. Crime under Pat Quinn has skyrocketed throughout Illinois — not just Chicago, but in Rockford and many other communities, and we’ve got to take action with restoring our budgets to balance so we properly staff and train our police departments.”–
Quite a strong and unambiguous statement by Rauner. It must be true. No would say something so reckless if it was not true.
Maybe he can give us a peek on those skyrocketing state crime figures he’s referring to.
And, of course, he must have a plan “to take action with restoring our budgets to balance so we properly staff and train our police departments.”
Whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Point of Information:
Information compiled for the annual Uniform Crime Reports would seem to indicate that the actual rate of index offenses– both violent and property– has declined from 2009 to 2012, the last year for which ISP/FBI data is available.
