Rauner continues to dodge Trump questions

Thursday, Jul 21, 2016 - Posted by Rich Miller

* Gov. Rauner again dodged questions about the presidential campaign today during a bill-signing event. Asked, for instance, if he planned to watch tonight’s big speech by Donald Trump, the governor said…

“I’m focused on Illinois’ prosperity and, uh, getting our Illinois, uh, reforms done. Political reform, economic reform, education reform.”

* Reminded that he said he’d support the party’s presidential nominee, so now that Trump is the nominee, what form would that support take?…

“Again, I, I’ve said what I’m, all I’m gonna say on the, on the presidential campaign.”

* Raw audio…

    “That’s all I have to say about that.”

    1. “Political reform means change the House from Dems to Republicans.,
    2. economic reform means get rid of all union rights to bargain for fair pay and benefits,
    3. education reform means privatize higher education..”


  3. - Huh? - Thursday, Jul 21, 16 @ 4:20 pm:

    To continue mama’s list:
    4. Blame Madigan.
    5. Campaign for the crash and burn agenda.
    6. Blame the Democrats super majority.
    7. Call everyone who doesn’t agree with him corrupt.
    8. Blame Madigan.
    9. Write big checks to the raunerite PACs.

    Bruce Rauner, in every federal office, “Every”… Rauber supports the Republican.

    Bruce Rauner, by his own words, supports Donald Trump.

    Period. End of Discussion. Zero debate

    Rauner supports Trump. Rauner said so.

    Rauner ignoring this fact… speaks volumes about Rauner and his thought that Rauner will sheepishly, albeit boisterously at the Illinois GOP Convention, unquestionably support Donald Trump for President.

    I know what I saw. I know what I heard.

    Why all the games… Governor Rauner?

    == “…uh, getting our Illinois, uh, reforms done. Political reform, economic reform, education reform.” ==

    How bout: ” uh…uh…uh…I’m focused on getting a balanced budget presented to the GA the first day they are back in session!”

    Now THAT would be something!

    More like Madigan every day.

    “Um, uh, did I stutter?”

    Rauner referred all Trump endorsement questions to his special counsel Nathan Thurm.

    He actually says that those who go on strike might not have positions when the strike is over. He goes into how to become a fair share member. He states that those who go on strike will have to pay both the employee and employer portion of the insurance premiums.
    If the video doesn’t outright violate the National Labor Relations Act, it certainly comes vert close and if there is a strike and the administration takes any action against those who do strike, it has opened them up for years of legal battles and law suits for wrongful termination.

    Someone should tell him the campaign is over we are now in a presidential race trump supporter


  11. - Saluki - Thursday, Jul 21, 16 @ 6:44 pm:

    Still not understanding why this is being asked, and why it is a story in the first place.


  12. - @MisterJayEm - Thursday, Jul 21, 16 @ 7:02 pm:

    “Still not understanding why this is being asked, and why it is a story in the first place.”

    And you’ve made that abundantly clear.

    “The Illinois GOP is a fully owned subsidy of Bruce Rauner, Inc. As such we have no connection with the National GOP at all.”/s

    –More like Madigan every day.–

    In what way? Really, what does that mean?

    Madigan’s ward was original, bedrock Reagan Democrat country. But if you look at the numbers, he obviously hustled to deliver what he could for Carter and Mondale.

    Geez, I feel like I’m trying to be released from Egypt. Maybe a big storm, coupled with the Stockholm Syndrome, would stone me so much that I would believe Rauner’s transparent sabotage is reasonable…

    “Mark it a zero, Smokie… It’s a league game…”
