    Letting your mood dictate your wardrobe…


  2. - Soccermom - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:14 pm:

    Don’t hurry back on my account.


  3. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:15 pm:

    “On April 13, Bruce Rauner was asked to remove himself from his home state of residence; that request came from the citizens. Deep down, he knew they was right, but he also knew that some day he would return to Illinois.”


  4. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:16 pm:

    (Costumes are checked luggage)


  5. - Union Dues - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:16 pm:

    Does “job mission” mean he is looking for a new job for himself? Start date Jan 2019?


  6. - very old soil - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:16 pm:

    All my bags are packed
    I’m ready to go
    I’m standin’ here outside your door
    I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
    But the dawn is breakin’
    It’s early morn
    The taxi’s waitin’
    He’s blowin’ his horn
    Already I’m so lonesome
    I could die
    So kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you’ll wait for me
    Hold me like you’ll never let me go
    ‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
    Don’t know when I’ll be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go
    There’s so many times I’ve let you down
    So many times I’ve played around
    I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing
    Ev’ry place I go, I’ll think of you
    Ev’ry song I sing, I’ll sing for you
    When I come back, I’ll bring your wedding ring
    So kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you’ll wait for me
    Hold me like you’ll never let me go
    ‘Cause I’m…

    With apologies to John Denver

    I think it is more like the 2018 Find Bruce a new job tour.


  10. - Joe Bidenopolous - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:19 pm:

    First of all, raise your hand if you believe he actually carries his own bags?

    Second, that’s baggage claim level at O’Hare - interesting way to enter the airport for a departure


  11. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:19 pm:

    “I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
    Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
    I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
    But is there because he’s a victim of the times.
    I wear the black for those who never read”

    ― Johnny Cash

  13. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:22 pm:

    Rauner gives Starbucks a free promotional Tweet. As if Starbucks doesn’t have enough problems right now.


  14. - Whatever - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:22 pm:

    That black-on-black attire is really tacky. Is he going to a mob summit?


  15. - Henry Francis - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:22 pm:

    Governor Rauner being mobbed by all his supporters at the airport.


  16. - Jocko - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:23 pm:

    Saluki beat me to it. I was going to say Bruce is going to fly over the “Ring of Fire” and “Walk the Line” with Angela Merkel. Let’s hope he doesn’t get “Hurt” and “Cry, Cry, Cry”


  17. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:23 pm:

    Professor Harold Hill Leaves River City

    Get one of those carts. You’re gonna hurt your back Gov.!


  20. - Henry Francis - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:26 pm:

    His arms used to be scrawny and weak. But after just 4 weeks at Gov. Greitens’ Pull Up Academy, Gov. Rauner is now able to carry his own luggage.


  21. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:26 pm:

    Coach? Why is CMS making me sit with the coaches? And why do coaches have their own section? And what is a “middle seat?” Isn’t it strange that so many coaches traveling to Europe that we have our own seats? Ooh, I hope Ditka’s on this flight.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:27 pm:

    Rauner In Black As Tour To Bring Jobs To “Death Spiral” Illinois Begins


  23. - Hickory - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:27 pm:

    What? No racist body man to carry his bags?


  25. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:28 pm:

    Griffin’s plane was in for servicing, so…


  26. - Perrid - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:29 pm:

  29. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:30 pm:

    “He looks better without the black tie, but I like where your head was at, costume-wise”


  30. - JoanP - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:31 pm:

    Wonder how much it would cost me to have the name changed to “Raunerbucks”?


  31. - wordslinger - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:32 pm:

    A Johnny Cash costume now?

    I guess the tune could be tweaked to “Unwanted Man.”

  33. - ChgoSphynx - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:34 pm:

    Joe Bidenopolous is right…that’s domestic baggage claim at O’Hare NOT the international terminal and certainly not departures. Fake news!


  34. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:35 pm:

    Did he leave his horse tied up outside at the cab stand?


  35. - Annonin' - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:36 pm:

    Wonder why GovJunk told the leaders he could only talk to them until 10:15 a.m. on THURSDAY when he is prancin’ into O’Hare at 2 p.m.

    “Professor Harold Hill Leaves River City” Yeah, but Prof. Harold Hill actually accomplished something.


  40. - Claud Peppers - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:42 pm:

    The bags are empty props, executive security carries the real luggage.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:42 pm:

    “Starbucks announces a new drink called a ‘Raunerchino‘

    It’s mostly a milk froth, disguised in a costume of a real drink, with empty calories and leaves you starving for more… “


  42. - JustSayIn - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:48 pm:

    Isn’t that by baggage claim? So is he coming or going?


  43. - Stand Tall - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:53 pm:
