* Bruce Rauner interview with Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution

I’m speaking at African American churches every Sunday morning, and I judge myself by how many standing ovations I get.

- Posted by Rich Miller        

  1. - Almost The Weekend - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 11:59 am:

    We are officially in uncharted territory

  2. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 11:59 am:

    The ease with which he lies is disturbing. Do you think he believes this stuff? Does he think anyone believes this stuff? What is it about the truth that is so unattractive to him that he has to make up lies about himself?

  3. - Miss Marie - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:01 pm:

    Well it shows that he doesn’t judge himself by how many social services orgs are closing while he’s filming campaign commercials

  4. - Undiscovered country - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:02 pm:

    positively trumpian

  5. - Ace Laredo - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:02 pm:

    “I have African American friends! I have A LOT of African American friends!!”

    —-every out of touch old white guy ever

  6. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:02 pm:

    What about when you get booed at graduation ceremonies? How do you judge that?

  7. - illini - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:03 pm:

    This is starting to get really strange and troubling.

  8. - anon - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:03 pm:

    I know they stand up, but how many leave after doing so??

  9. - Nick Name - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:03 pm:


  10. - Mr. RJG - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:05 pm:

    Lord, have mercy, telling them lies like that!

  11. - illinoised - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:05 pm:

    Condescending and out of touch.

  12. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:07 pm:

    Two really important realities to consider…

    1) Rauner knows saying that is him continuing to push his own “belief” that he has support by just saying that to build around the push back of his own upside down numbers…

    Which is fine. Phony, but fine…

    2) Rauner has a serious disconnect that “applause and cheering” within a momentary stop with a polite and thoughtful audience IS a real measurable.

    … which is not how to measure your own popularity or your own popularity overall. If that is true, yikes.

  13. - Omay - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:07 pm:

    The 2017 version of the Emporor’s New Clothes.

  14. - Miss Marie - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:09 pm:

    Looks like he’s also not judging himself on how much Illinois’s credit rating is falling…

    Or how many college students are leaving Illinois since they don’t know if Illinois universities will still be standing when they graduate…

    Or how many students can’t afford college anymore since their Map grants are in danger…

    Or how many not-for-profits have had to cut back on services or let staff go…

    Or how many Illinoisans have ask the Governor to do his fricken job!!!!!

    Sorry I’m a little frustrated

  15. - Montrose - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:09 pm:

    I have hesitated to compare Rauner to Trump. That hesitation is now completely gone.

  16. - Flip357 - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:09 pm:

    Is he planning some Bullworth-style antics?

  17. - walker - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:09 pm:

    Is Rauner trying to mimic Trump? Or does it come naturally?

  18. - Amalia - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:10 pm:

    They stand for you. Do you stand for them Governor?

  19. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:11 pm:

    In the words of Mayor Richard M. Daley - Cuckoo!

  20. - DuPage Saint - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    What world does this man live in? And please stop comparing him to Trump it gives Trump a bad name.

  21. - Jocko - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    I guess that’s one way of looking at your poorly received commencement address at Chicago State.

  22. - just sayin' - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    Rauner is nothing like Trump. Trump knows how to bring people together and gets things done. Trump knows how to communicate.

    The “Rauner is Trump” talking point is the laziest attack ever. And very insulting to the President.

  23. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    There are some that might consider that statement blasphemous.

  24. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:15 pm:

    Can we has a list of the last 30 so we can verify his assertions?

  25. - Been There - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:16 pm:

    He does have a habit of writing some big checks. Maybe he sends it early and they know how much he has sent them. That will get you a standing O every time no matter where you are at.

  26. - Regular democrat - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:17 pm:

    Did he wear biker vest to the service? Was the harley out front? The rich white guy pandering. Priceless

  27. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:19 pm:

    I wish people would stop comparing Rauner to Trump. Rauner has much bigger hands and I’m pretty sure that he’s not very fond of the Russians.

  28. - L.A. - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:19 pm:

    “Rauner is nothing like Trump. Trump knows how to bring people together and gets things done. Trump knows how to communicate.”

    Is this snark? Because if it is, it should be followed by a /s

  29. - James Knell - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:19 pm:

    List of churches visited please.

    Footage of all the standing O’s please.

  30. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:22 pm:

    47, you’ll change your tune when those “hundreds” of manufacturers the governor lined up while secretly criss-crossing the country start rolling into Illinois.

    First it was “dozens,” then it grew to “hundreds.”

    It’s way creepy.

  31. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:22 pm:

    What happens when he goes to “white churches”?

  32. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:23 pm:

    “Ace Loredo” @ 12:02 nailed it.

  33. - Honeybear - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:23 pm:

    1 I don’t doubt him. I bet he does get ovations

    2. These are “prosperity gospel” churches. Wealth is a sign of Gods’ blessing. Rauner is wealthy ergo. I’m sure it also helped that he put a check in the plate.

    3 what Trump did for disaffected white voters, Rauner is doing for disaffected black voters. He is harnessing the legitimate gripes and neglect. People want to be listened too. They want someone to show up. Rauner has been working this angle for a while.

    4 I wouldn’t mock his statement. It concerns me. Perfidy is Rauners true craft. For those predisposed to adore the wealthy, he has a receptive audience.

    5 have we forgotten the damage Dunkin did?

  34. - Reality Check - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:24 pm:

    This was taped June 10. Rauner went to New Life Covenant Church in Chicago on May 14. He went to My. Zion Missionary Baptist in Waukegan on Jan. 15.

    If there were visits to African-American churches on the other 23 previous Sundays this year, the Rauner press shop should share them.

    Until then, we have to confront the fact that the governor of Illinois is a bald-faced liar.

  35. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:25 pm:

    ===those “hundreds” of manufacturers the governor lined up===

    Like those unnamed Democratic lawmakers who keep telling Rauner in private that he’s doing fantastic work. Lol.

    Way creepy indeed.

  36. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:25 pm:

    “I judge myself by how many standing ovations I get.”

    I on the other hand judge myself the same way that Ty Webb did in Caddy Shack.

  37. - LizPhairTax - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:26 pm:

    Just last week I was at Triple Rock Baptist Church. Reverend Cleophus James showed me the light.

  38. - Mike Cirrincione - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:28 pm:


    - Mayor Richard M Daley

  39. - Chicago Cynic - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:28 pm:

    47, you nailed it. Maybe it’s just me, but he seems to be doing that with greater and greater ease. It’s very similar to Trump, who’s given license to this kind of bad behavior by elected officials. No consequence to this kind of deception breeds more deception.

  40. - just sayin' - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:29 pm:

    Surprised Rauner hasn’t stolen John Lennon’s famous line yet about being “more popular than Jesus.”

    No, that’s not a suggestion Bruce. Seriously. Just don’t.

  41. - JPC - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:30 pm:

    What Honeybear said.

    It’s very disheartening, however, to hear how often the Governor invokes personal encounters (”the people I personally meet in stage-managed situations love me!”)as a rebuttal to his upside-down poll numbers.

  42. - Your Name Here - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:31 pm:

    “Judge not lest ye be judged”

  43. - Nick Name - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:32 pm:

    Waiting for Lucky Pierre’s in-depth analysis of why this is Madigan’s fault.

  44. - cdog - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:34 pm:

    He is obviously exaggerating, lying, or worse, but any attention AA community can get from is good.

    The Obama Administration did nothing for this community in Chicago except stir up discontent. At least this year, black unemployment is declining.

    Watch out church friends, Rauner is one of those slippery types from the garden and can be very deceiving.

  45. - Because I Said So.... - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:35 pm:

    Almost lost my lunch!

  46. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:35 pm:

    And I tell them: “If it’s white, it’s alright.”

  47. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:39 pm:

    I wonder if Rauner pushed the IPI position of extortion and exploitation, that in order for jobs to come, African-Americans have to give up labor rights and make brutal concessions so that super-rich white men can permanently have political and economic power over them.

  48. - Pelonski - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:45 pm:

    You can tell why he did so well as a salesman. He has no problems telling lies with sincerity. The next thing you know, he’ll be telling us he has vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in Arkansas when he was growing up.

  49. - Undiscovered country - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:49 pm:

    @just sayin’
    It is not laziness to observe two persons who publicly bolster their policy positions by citing anecdotal examples of support and stating (or implying in Rauner’s case) a dramatically greater level than is verifiable. Compare Rauner’s statement in essence to the President’s statements about his polling numbers, the size of his inauguration crowd or the magnitude of his electoral college victory. In all cases, there is an express (in the President’s case) or implied (with the Governor) assertion of support that has no basis in fact. That is not laziness, it is observation. Laziness is refusing to make valid comparisons when one dislikes the comparison.

  50. - Joe M. - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:50 pm:

    Gov. Rauner: And anyone that reports that I haven’t been to African American churches every Sunday, or reports that at each church I don’t get standing ovations - is reporting fake news.

  51. - Reality Check - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:51 pm:

    Rauner, basically:

  52. - Demoralized - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:52 pm:

    He’s the happiest he’s been in 20 years and he’s now measuring success by standing ovations. He’s entering Rod Blagojevich territory with those sorts of remarks.

  53. - Pelonski - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:53 pm:

    just sayin’,

    That’s not Rauner’s style. Instead, he will tell us how Jesus took him aside and said “Bruce, keep up the fight, you are doing great things for this state.”

  54. - jimk849 - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:54 pm:

    “Good mornin preacher if I get twenty standin o’s I’ll drop a couple a k’s in the basket”

  55. - Quizzical - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:57 pm:

    It’s just Ken Dunkin standing and applauding by himself each time. 10 more ovations and he gets the VC job he was promised.

  56. - Chicago Cynic - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 12:58 pm:

    So has anyone checked his schedule and then confronted him on this?

  57. - So tired of political hacks - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:00 pm:

    “At least this year the black unemployment rate is declining”

    So is the population, they are leaving Illinois in droves.

  58. - Reality Check - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:02 pm:

    @Chicago Cynic, see my comment at 12:24 pm.

  59. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:10 pm:

    “The Obama Administration did nothing for this community in Chicago.”

    Many thousands of African-Americans got Medicaid expansion and vital healthcare, as well as private health insurance with the help of subsidies.

    By the way I helped family members shop for health insurance on the federal marketplace and was able to help one get a good deal on a silver plan as late as last year.

    Now Rauner grandstands like Trump but won’t dare take a stand for or against Trumpcare.

    “except stir up discontent”

    Obama was responsible for white officers shooting blacks and deeply-entrenched and old problems that can’t be solved by one president alone? That “discontent” was latent white racism that rose to the surface easily. Obama could barely speak of racism and black suffering without some calling him a divider. That’s another form of racism, where you can’t dare speak about your pain.

    Reality Check, yup. Definitely.

    What an awful thing to say. Demeaning to African Americans and patronizing towards everyone. Horrible.

    There is definately something very wrong with Bruce Rauner, besides the fact that he’s the current governor, that is.

  63. - Jibba - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:13 pm:

    A couple days ago I had proposed “perplexing” as a one-word descriptor of what’s going on in Springfield between the governor and basically everybody. This goes beyond “perplexing” to enter the land of “worrying.”

    It seems to me that perhaps he really does not understand that of the state’s 13 million residents, around 12 million or so are profoundly concerned, and have every right to be.

  68. - Thatgirl - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:29 pm:

    WTH? Why would he even say that? #moreliketrumpeveryday. Just wondering if Bigly Bruce wears his leather vest and snap on shirt to church.

  69. - @MisterJayEm - Tuesday, Jun 27, 17 @ 1:30 pm:

    “What an awful thing to say. Demeaning to African Americans and patronizing towards everyone. Horrible.”


    Governor, a lie told about Black people is still a lie.
