Question of the day

Thursday, Oct 26, 2017 - Posted by Rich Miller

* Scott Reeder

State Rep. Jeanne Ives sounds like she’ll be a candidate for Illinois governor.

The Wheaton Republican is one of the most conservative members of the General Assembly and she is hopping mad at Gov. Bruce Rauner who she contends is not trustworthy.

Rauner angered many in his party by signing a bill last month providing state funding for elective abortions. He did this after promising multiple Catholic bishops and state lawmakers that he wouldn’t.

“He’s failed the integrity test. No one in the Legislature believes a word he says,” Ives said.

If Ives enters the race, she would be the only candidate opposing abortion rights in either the Republican or Democrat gubernatorial primaries.

* The Question: Suggested Jeanne Ives campaign slogans?

    “Long live the Confederacy”

    “Very fine people on both sides”

    “Pro-life until they’re actually born”


  2. - Ghost - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:09 am:

    “It’s time to protect men’s rights and put women in their place”

    Life begins at conception but ends just before medical care, food and education.

    No Billionaire Bull With Me

    “Ives gotta be me!”


  5. - Southside Markie - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:11 am:

    So many tempting things to say — almost all of them inappropriate and many that would justifiably prompt banishment. I think that I’ll stay quiet on this one.

    Ives 2018: I won’t lie to you, I’m crazy


  7. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:13 am:

    Because I said so, and I own the franchise on the truth.


  8. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:14 am:

    Run for your Ives!


  9. - In 630 - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:15 am:

    Forget Kansas. Let’s fail like Oklahoma.

    The Ives of March for Illinois


  11. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:15 am:

    Beware the Ives of March.


  12. - WheatonWarrior - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:15 am:

    “Crazy about Illinois… really crazy”


  13. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:15 am:

    Can’t go wrong on a One Way street.


  14. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:15 am:

    That’s twice this morning.


  15. - Huh? - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:16 am:

    I’m not rauner.

    I need a pay check, so I’ll take the governor’s salary.

    I’m not going to be a volunteer as governor.

    I don’t have 9 houses.


  16. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:16 am:

    OW and 47, you too wake up together? lol


  17. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:17 am:

  18. - Joe M - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:18 am:

    “Blame it on Madigan” - whoops, the other GOP Governor candidate already got that one. How about, “I never met a union that I liked” or “I have never seen a liberal idea that I liked”


  19. - Fayette County - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:18 am:

    I Can Out Trump Trump


  20. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    Is that a gay joke Guy? Appropriate on an Ives thread I suppose, but pretty much no where else. Lucky for you this is a blog and not a face-to-face encounter, if you know what I mean.


  21. - Grand Avenue - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    “Slightly less bonkers than Joe Walsh”


  22. - 360 Degree Turnaround - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    Let’s be angry again.


  23. - Anonymous - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    And you thought Rauner was bad


  24. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    I Like Trump

    Seriously. Trump got nearly twice the votes in the prez primary that Rauner got in the guv primary. Rauner’s obvious distancing of himself from Trump could be a real problem in a one-on-one primary with a solid Trump supporter.


  25. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:19 am:

    “I’m With Her?”


  26. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:21 am:

    - 47th Ward -

    Apologies, bud.

    “Ives for Lives”… then “HB40″ with a “no” circle with that line thru it.

    Ives can thank me later… But if she uses it, I want one of those signs, sighed by Rep. Ives.

    “Deal?”


  27. - Gruntled University Employee - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:21 am:

    Vote for me, I’ll out Trump, Trump.


  28. - Juvenal - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:21 am:

    Rauner Lied, Babies Died

    Her campaign really is going to be about all of his broken promises, including what Ives and the GOP base sees as the most important promise of all.

    Ives’ campaign ain’t gonna be about Jeanne Ives.


  29. - Undiscovered country - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:23 am:

    “Be Right(wing) to Do Right(things)”


  30. - A guy - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:24 am:

    ==Is that a gay joke Guy?==

    No. I guess being hypersensitive and goofy is appropriate on this thread too.

    == Lucky for you this is a blog and not a face-to-face encounter, if you know what I mean.==

    You sure I’m the lucky one? Lighten up…a lot…Francis.


  31. - Last Bull Moose - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:24 am:

  38. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:37 am:

    – she must publicly embrace pragmatic incrementalism–

    Must she? Is there another Jeanne Ives you’re referring to?


  39. - anon - Thursday, Oct 26, 17 @ 10:43 am:
