ILGOP chairman says he’s “disappointed” in Rauner, but blames Madigan

Thursday, Sep 28, 2017

* Surprise!…

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider released the following statement after Governor Rauner announced he will be signing House Bill 40 into law:

“I am disappointed in the Governor’s decision to sign HB40 as the Illinois Republican Party opposes taxpayer-funded abortions.

“While I am frustrated and saddened, I also know that Speaker Madigan and the Democrats are trying to use this issue to divide our party and elect a Madigan-backed candidate for governor.

“As Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, I will not let that happen. Our state faces great challenges, and we are focused on the issues that unite us as Republicans and as Illinoisans. There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection and finally defeat Mike Madigan once and for all.”

    Mike Madigan can’t sign a bill into law.

    Good try, thou.


  2. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:45 pm:

    Blame Madigan. Lol!

    Say this for them, they are relentlessly on-message.

    ===As Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, I will not let that happen. ===

    Umm, Tim. Its happening


  4. - Anon E. Moose - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:47 pm:

    Sure seems like there’s a lot of “daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party” lately. But keep telling yourself that this is all Madigan’s fault. That worked out for you, right? /snark


  5. - Demoralized - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:49 pm:

    Now you’re making the “Blame Madigan” game just look silly.


  6. - DuPage Bard - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:50 pm:

    Guess Breen was right- some people only want the money. Good job Tim


  7. - Demoralized - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:53 pm:

    ==There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party ==

    Umm, this is what the GOP platform says:

    *We advocate the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

    *We oppose the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions

    Seems to me there is a solar system between the Governor and the Illinois Republican Party.


  8. - King Louis XVI - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:54 pm:

    “Disappointed” seems to be the sanctioned word of disapproval.

    Breen didn’t get the memo.


  9. - Anon221 - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:55 pm:

    Oh Tim…

    Mike Madigan and the Governor he controls….


  11. - old time golfer - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:56 pm:

    He forgot to say ” Bruce please dont forget to send this months check for the GOP bills we need paid”


  12. - Arsenal - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:56 pm:

    I am so happy I’m the first one who gets to make this joke:

    Mike Madigan and the Bruce Rauners he controls…


  13. - Arsenal - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 3:57 pm:

    Oh, darn.


  14. - Christopher - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:00 pm:

    Wow - any way the ILGOP can twist something to blame on Madigan, they try it.


  15. - MIKEY THE DEM - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:03 pm:

    Worst day in Illinois Republican politics since Edgar signed the pension ramp. Rauner is done, not a chance of re-election. I live downstate, and the Repubs downstate will turn him into Mark Kirk now.


  16. - cdog - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    What is Schneider even talking about? This has nothing to do with Madigan.

    This has more to do with contradictory principles that really imply some sort of mental issue. Surprise. It’s been obvious for quite some time.

    Rauner The Terrible should resign. His republican strategies like running up the accounts payable ledger to $15b+ are not appreciated and need to be labeled the hoax that they are.

    Not only has he created mayhem for no good public reason, he disengeniously panders to a new constituency daily.

    The unprincipled plutocrat is inept; GOP deserves a better patron. This guy’s a joke.


  17. - Demoralized - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    ==Rauner is done==

    Even if it means putting JB Pritzger into the Mansion?


  18. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:06 pm:

    Rauner has promoted his death wish.


  19. - Michelle Flaherty - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:07 pm:

    You know, after two years of gridlock, that Kristina Rasmussen is really producing results.


  20. - Moby - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:09 pm:

    Speaker Madigan and the gubernatorial bill-signing pens he controls.


  21. - NeverPoliticallyCorrect - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:09 pm:

    Yep, Rauners toast. He has just become another part of the “combine”. But more sad is the new and improved ease with which we will pay to murder children. Sorry if people don’t like the language but that is what we are doing. Yet we can’t even think about ending the life of a pre-meditated murderer. It’s these kinds or moral priorities that betray the moral vacuum of leaders in this state.


  22. - Fax Machine - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:13 pm:

    Personal PAC has to endorse him now right? He’s a pro-choice incumbent.


  23. - Lamont - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:13 pm:

    It’s popcorn time in the comments section as the republicans eat their own.


  24. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:22 pm:

    “… we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection and finally defeat Mike Madigan once and for all.”

    Did GOP Chairman Schneider just announce Rauner is running for Madigan’s House seat?


  25. - Curl of the Burl - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:23 pm:

    Fax - if they do that would certainly be an interesting turn of events.


  26. - Precinct Captain - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:29 pm:

    These guys have a crunchy sock for Madigan.


  27. - walker - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:34 pm:

    Is it anti-taxes or anti-abortion that wins the hearts and minds? Must it be both?


  28. - anon2 - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:38 pm:

    Schneider exhibits symptoms of MDS, Madigan Derangement Syndrome. Persons afflicted with it blame everything bad in Illinois on Madigan, while giving him no credit for anything good.


  29. - Laurie Higgins - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:40 pm:

    IL GOP chair Tim Schneider said, “There is no daylight between Governor Rauner and the Illinois Republican Party and we will continue working hard to ensure his reelection….” Is he kidding?


  30. - wordslinger - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 4:46 pm:

    –ILGOP chairman says he’s “disappointed” in Rauner, but blames Madigan–

    Best headline ever.

    That’s straight out of Kubrick in “Dr. Strangelove” or Heller in “Catch-22.”

    I see young Bob Newhart (Major Major) as Schneider in the farce.


  31. - Laurie Higgins - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 5:04 pm:

    At his press conference, Rauner actually said this: “The moral argument AGAINST HB 40 is very powerful and in my view not debatable. It is irrefutable.”

    I guess Rauner decided to go with the debatable, refutable moral argument.


  32. - Michelle Flaherty - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 5:07 pm:

    If they’d held the tax increase for a couple weeks Rauner probably would have signed that, too.


  33. - GA Watcher - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 5:15 pm:

    Here’s a headline from the e-blast I just received from my local Patch online newspaper: “Rauner Signs Bill Permitting Medicaid to Cover Abortion”.


  34. - Honeybadger - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 5:15 pm:

    The blame Madigan Mantra is like when we were kids and you’re used to look into the mirror and say I believe in Mary worth I believe in Mary worth


  35. - wordslinger - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 5:20 pm:

    –At his press conference, Rauner actually said this: “The moral argument AGAINST HB 40 is very powerful and in my view not debatable. It is irrefutable.”

    I guess Rauner decided to go with the debatable, refutable moral argument.–

    LOL, no he actually rejected the moral, irrefutable argument that he claims.

    Great work, BTIA(TM). Not so good grades in English and Logic, huh?


  36. - Mr B - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 6:45 pm:

    Madigan, the perfect scapegoat for all of our problems.


  37. - cdog - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 7:32 pm:

    Rauner left out the logical conclusion.

    “I sign HB40, therefore I am immoral.”

    What a reptile.


  38. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 7:34 pm:

    Obviously it was Madigan. The Governor really tried but cmon guys it’s not his fault.


  39. - blue dog dem - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 8:14 pm:

    Dear Mr. schneider;
    MMadigan is the reason I am no longer a Dem. People like you and the governor is why I cannot be a Republican. Thanks for reminding me.
    Old Blue


  40. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 28, 17 @ 8:38 pm:

    Rauner has to be finished I can’t see anyone in there right mind vote for him again has done nothing just jealous of speaker madigan


  41. - Rabid - Friday, Sep 29, 17 @ 7:47 am:

    no daylight between us, you must be in the dark with your torches
