* He’s been there since Monday waiting on the US Supreme Court’s Janus decision…
Daily Public Schedule: Wednesday, June 27, 2018
Gov. Rauner continues his visit to Washington, D.C. on official business.
Get this: as fate would have it, @GovRauner and Champaign's Mayor @DebFrankfeinen are both in Washington D.C. tonight. I'm hearing they are scheduled to meet tonight with some business/economy wonks. Will the mayor ask the Governor for a public apology?
If he paid the cameraman and everyone out of his campaign funds that wouldn’t be using public funds would it?
This is a case specifically about IL so he has an excuse to be out there and paying attention to it, and it is “completely coincidental” that it also makes for a good ad, lol.
The Rauner Crew must really expect Janus to put a beating on Public Sector Unions, huh? If the SC rules otherwise (or punts, as RNUG suggests), BR is going to have a hard time sneaking out of DC un-noticed.
Rauner will be guest speaking everywhere, will be sought on panels and be courted by think tanks.
Don’t be short sided in your thinking.
Rauner is a colossal failure as a governor.
Rauner will be known nationally as the governor to take down public sector unions. That’s the ball game now. In reality, Rauner might be disengaged in process now, with all that he is trying to hone… getting blown out for re-elect only makes the legend he wants even “more”…
The $112 million has come down to a photo op, with Janus on the US Supreme Court steps, hopefully sunny for color photos, cloudy for the black and white photos. The most expensive photo op in history.
So, tomorrow is about the day, it is about winning the day, a day in the sun, and all the days after in the sun for the Martryr Bruce Rauner, the patron saint to union busting… or that’s how the releases, the interviews, the bios, everything after Janus… that’s the goal.
Like all mythology, truth is lost.
Rauner had no standing in Janus.
In reality, Rauner had no standing and was taken out, so it’s not even an “opinion” Rauner has standing, based on… well, opinion.
The mythology Rauner wants must have photos, the hand raised in locked finger victory with Janus… shot low, looking up at the myth, with the neoclassical Roman temple architecture…
It can’t be overstated how critically important these pictures and this mythology is born tomorrow.
It’s an expensive legacy, but Rauner needs the legacy and the mythology.
