*** UPDATED x1 - Cullerton hopes to reschedule *** Madigan a no-show for leaders meeting

Tuesday, Nov 29, 2016

* Yesterday

As he has stated for weeks, Madigan said a deal would be reached only if Rauner followed the “framework” for other temporary spending agreements. That’s code meaning Rauner should set aside his economic agenda, as he has done in the past facing other funding emergencies.

Asked why he participates in these meetings if he’s opposed to Rauner’s ideas, Madigan said he attends “at the request of the governor.”

Republicans, meanwhile, said they were unclear with whom they were negotiating, suggesting either a game of “good cop, bad cop” between Cullerton and Madigan or a divide between the Democratic leaders.

“It’s hard to know what’s going on here,” said Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno, of Lemont. “So we’ll see who shows up tomorrow.”

* Today…


I told subscribers about this earlier today.

*** UPDATE ***  Senate President John Cullerton just told reporters that “hopefully” the leaders can reschedule for this afternoon. “If we can get back today we will. If not we have a time scheduled for tomorrow.” Cullerton met with the other leaders for more than half an hour before he talked to reporters.

    Why couldn’t the Governor accommodate the speaker’s schedule?


  2. - hum - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:44 am:

    The Governor dicates a time. A legislative leader - the leader of the largest legislative caucus - asks to change the time. The Governor ignores the request. Now Madigan is characterized as a no show?

    Why is no one focusing on the audacity of the Governor?


  3. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:45 am:

    ===The Governor dicates a time===

    No loaded words there.

    C’mon. They already had this thing scheduled.


  4. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:45 am:

    Man, Madigan really doesn’t give a $(?& about what people think. Admirable in a different profession, perhaps, but as a “public servant”, a losing pose.


  5. - Deft Wing - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:46 am:

    Madigan’s recalcitrance continues and seems to be getting more visible.

    Wonder how it is playing with his caucus?


  6. - Bobby Catalpa - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:49 am:


    Wonder how it is playing with his caucus?

    Very well, I hope.


  7. - LessAnon? - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:55 am:

    So, again, Madigan’s stance is the Governor agrees to HIS framework, or there’s no deal. Yet, the spin is the Governor is forcing Dems to unrealistically go along with HIS framework. Interesting. Again, only one side seems to be looking for a way out of this mess.


  8. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:56 am:

    It baffles me that the staunchly anti-Madigan types think that the D’s get as riled up as they do about the Speaker’s maneuvering.


  9. - Ebenezer - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:57 am:

    Madigan is a smart guy, so there is a purpose. What does he gain here?


  10. - Annonin' - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:00 am:

    Actually it appears both Capt fax and Jordan got this a little wrong. Governor’s staff told this a.m. Speaker was available for today’s meeting after 1 p.m.


  11. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:07 am:

    I you’re going to play Cat and Mouse, you sure don’t want to be the mouse.


  12. - cdog - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:16 am:

    My thoughts are beginning to solidify.

    I think that Madgan, and his so-called political skills, are completely over-rated. We will see if his image can improve today.

    Relevent questions to me, include–Has the Leader of the House of Representatives of the State of Illinois made a new argument, presented a new thought, reacted in realtime to a set of events, spoken with integrity about the best interest of the future of Illinois while showing he is in command of current events, any time in the last year?

    I doubt anyone can find any examples of Madigan saying something intelligent about the pension problem, the budget problem, the backlog problem, etc. All you will find is a bunch of worn-out, tired and shallow talking points.

    Maybe today will be different.


  13. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:25 am:

    “My thoughts are beginning to solidify.”

    Similar to what’s happening with my breakfast. Same result forthcoming.


  14. - Loop Lady - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:26 am:

    Mikey needs time to acclimate to his toxicity…cut him some slack…


  15. - Responsa - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:33 am:

    Sickening and childish. This Madigan game playing is starting to look like …game playing to the public.


  16. - wondering - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:34 am:

    One player, Madigan, says little, comes to meetings on his own terms, and states, no turn around or no deal. The R’s are wailing in angst and spitting out venom. Do I detect a sense of panic as Rauner slowly twists in the wind?


  17. - Responsa - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:43 am:

    ==It baffles me that the staunchly anti-Madigan types think that the D’s get as riled up as they do about the Speaker’s maneuvering.==

    At some point it has to stop between the D’s and R’s being “riled” or not, or punked or not. There is a state with 12 million people to run and govern, and it’s going to take both Madigan and the Governor moving an inch or two to do it.


  18. - Responsa - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:55 am:

    ==I think that Madgan, and his so-called political skills, are completely over-rated. ==

    It is possible that because Madigan’s political skills and instincts were honed in a different time he has not been able to keep up with how social media and the 24 hour internet news cycle has dramatically changed both the process and interaction with the public at large. I think many politicians over a certain age are having trouble adapting to how image making and message delivery have changed.


  19. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 11:58 am:

    Responsa

    Agreed, and I offered a similar sentiment yesterday. That post goes directly towards another poster who suggested D reps are irked by today’s show.


  20. - Midway Gardens - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 12:00 pm:

    ==Do I detect a sense of panic as Rauner slowly twists in the wind?== The seeds to Rauner’s reelection are being planted. A balanced budget means a tax increase. Not having one is better for Rauner’s reelection. He’s going to go in with the message that he did what he could (controlling labor costs) while the reforms needed to get Illinois on track are stymied by an intransigent opposition who won’t even talk.


  21. - Louis G. Atsaves - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 12:12 pm:

    ” . . . If not we have a time scheduled for tomorrow. . . .”

    So the meetings were set in advance? Mr. Senate President Cullerton, thank you for the clarification.


  22. - Signal and Noise - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 12:31 pm:

    No one outside the Capitol cares about this “maneuvering” and petty games being played about a meeting time. This is all for internal show.


  23. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 12:42 pm:

    “No one outside the Capitol cares about this “maneuvering” and petty games being played about a meeting time. This is all for internal show.”

    Weepy Raunerites on this blog beg to differ.


  24. - Team Sleep - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 1:02 pm:

    Responsa - very poignant observation. I remember when YouTube and Facebook were gaining popularity and how many elected officials panicked because everything they said and did was accessible in short order. Speaker Madigan is a wise, smart individual who needs to realize that 2016 is not 2006 or 1996. Is the ILGOP’s messaging about who the three House Dem targets vote for Speaker a bit much? Maybe. But in the age of immediate social media/news cycles things like missing meetings or blowing off press availability makes the microscope sharper and the hot takes even hotter.


  25. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 1:35 pm:

    Response. Bingo!


  26. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 1:36 pm:

    Responsa! Damn auto correct


  27. - wondering - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 1:40 pm:

    Responsa……= I think many politicians over a certain age are having trouble adapting to how image making and message delivery have changed.= Are you talking about Madigan or Trump?


  28. - Boone's is Back - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:36 pm:

    What a joke. This is getting childish.
