Another great thing about Chicago? We’re an incubator for what’s new, life-style relevant. We are fearless testers: we tell you what we think and adopt accordingly. Really important for innovators like Amazon. Can’t wait to GO. https://t.co/scB1mWwPQr
What is the point of being a total fool if one cannot offer daily reminders.

Poor guy. You just have to shake your head and chuckle.
He touts Chicago being the most corrupt city and tries to make JB the common element in all that is corrupt there.
Then just 86 minutes later he touts how Chicago is an innovator, an incubator. Without mentioning that JB was one of the founders and funders of the City’s biggest and most successful incubator (1871).
Neither Twitter feed speaks to the findings by the Illinois Auditor General. I recall Bruce saying “[E]very dollar that is improperly spent on fraud, waste or abuse is a dollar that should have gone to where it’s needed most.”

Are we sure he even wants to Governor anymore? The number of unforced errors and the negative ad fodder he’s produced in just the last year screams, please someone put me out of my misery.

Rauner is a politician’s politician, as far as talking out of both sides of his mouth. Voters need to be careful about those who say they’re not politicians, because that word doesn’t just mean office-holder.
Effective governors clean up corrupt cities with their states.
Rauner fails to do that because he isn’t an effective governor.
Rauner is supposed to tell us what he has done to make Illinois a better state, asking for reelection. Instead he tells us how he is a helpless failure that needs another term to begin doing what he never started.
Rauner has had 3 plus years to help make a difference. He has done nothing but call names, blame others, and complain. He has attacked everything in Chicago from the Teachers to the Police. What has he done to make anything better? I can’t think of a thing, the problem is neither can anyone else.

==So why’d you clout your daughter into CPS? Shouldn’t she have stayed in nice, safe Winnetka?==
The Simpson report is about the Chicago metro area, and Northern Illinois, including Winnetka.
Actually it’s about 1706 convictions over 40 decades for an area that has had roughly 10 million people. I’m not quaking in my boots.

Since Rauner put the Dick Simpson’s report front and center, is he planning on pushing for Simpson’s reforms, like public funding of all political campaigns?
