Rauner and Emanuel are dissing each other again

Thursday, Aug 9, 2018

* Tribune

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner weighed in on Chicago’s mayoral race Thursday, calling Mayor Rahm Emanuel “corrupt” and lumping him with Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker and House Speaker Michael Madigan as three men who have “got to go.” […]

“Emanuel’s getting $20 million from his special interest groups. He’s corrupt. He’s part of the problem in Chicago,” Rauner said. “Failure on jobs. Failure on taxes. He’s got to go.” […]

Emanuel does not have $20 million this election cycle — at least not yet. To date, the mayor has raised more than $10 million toward his bid for a third term, according to state campaign finance records. As for special interests, about $2.4 million of that money has come from unions and another $186,000 from other political action committees, including the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association, AT&T employees, Exelon and Ford Motor Company. […]

“Bruce Rauner’s Downstate election strategy is centered solely on denigrating Chicago, in large part because he doesn’t have any accomplishments worth mentioning. He’s said Chicago’s children attend schools that are crumbling prisons, he called Chicago’s teachers ‘virtually illiterate’ and he derided a peaceful anti-violence march led by several Chicago ministers as ‘chaos,’” [Emanuel spokesman Adam Collins] said in a statement. “He’s wrapping up a term in which he achieved nothing other than gridlock, and I guess desperate times call for desperate rhetoric.”

Politically, a fight probably helps both men.

* Sun-Times

In a downstate radio interview on WJPF, Rauner was asked about former Gov. Pat Quinn’s push to get mayoral term limits and launched into an assault on Emanuel.

“Pritzker, Madigan, Emanuel, those guys got to go,” Rauner said.

Rauner said term limits “get guys out of office who need to go but who have too much power concentrated.” […]

Emanuel’s communications director Adam Collins called the Rauner broadside “high praise from the man named the worst governor in America.”

* We even got a Trump angle…



* Speaking of violence

Gov. Bruce Rauner says Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has “failed horribly” on public safety after gunfire in the city last weekend injured more than 70 people and killed at least 11.

The Republican said Thursday that Chicago police have not received sufficient personnel, equipment or staffing assistance to be effective.

Rauner says he’s “disappointed” in Democrat Emanuel. Rauner says public safety is an officeholder’s first duty and that Chicago’s leaders “have fundamentally failed, failed horribly.” […]

Adam Collins is Emanuel’s spokesman. He says Rauner is to blame for his veto of legislation to crack down on illegal gun sales through state licensing of firearms dealers. Rauner rejected the plan from legislative Democrats as too burdensome on small businesses. Rauner has promised to veto another version of the plan that lawmakers have not yet sent him. […]

Police have will have 600 more officers in affected neighborhoods by this weekend.

    I’m not convinced more = better. More guys like the ones who thought up the trucks full of Nikes parked in Englewood? Or more beat cops walking around listening to residents? I know which I’d prefer if I lived in the hood.

    I guess they won’t be vacationing together again any time soon.

    When thieves fall out . . .


  3. - Pundent - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 4:31 pm:

    =“Pritzker, Madigan, Emanuel, those guys got to go,” Rauner said.=

    Doesn’t Pritzker have to get elected first before we talk about getting him term limited?

    ===“Failure on jobs. Failure on taxes. He’s got to go.”===

    Dear Ms. Caprara,

    First, big fan. Your twitter, still comedy gold.

    Second…

    If you can get this sound, it’ll be one heck of a radio spot.

    “Governor Rauner, how would you rate your first term…

    “Failure on jobs. Failure on taxes. He’s got to go.”

    … listen to Bruce. Governor Rauner has to go”

    Or… get the video, make the Ad.

    Be well, go Iggles, hope you get to enjoy the fair.

    OW


  5. - Shelby Thomas Weems - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 4:49 pm:

    OW…. my man…. do you actually think…. that Caprara is reading CapFax comments for tips?


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 4:54 pm:

    ===do you actually think…. that Caprara is reading CapFax comments for tips?===

    My “man”

    Do you think when I comment like that, it’s about any tip or advice?

    How serious do you think I take myself, LOL


  7. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:04 pm:

    ===Politically, a fight probably helps both men.===

    They both agree.

    Here’s some really quality work, just a tad wordy but still top cuts…

    ===“Bruce Rauner’s Downstate election strategy is centered solely on denigrating Chicago, in large part because he doesn’t have any accomplishments worth mentioning.

    Could probably cut a 1/3 off, but you’d still be cutting prime meat.

    It’s up to Dems in Chicago and Cook and the Collars to continue to discuss how Rauner tries to divide the state because of his lack of accomplishments.


  8. - Louis G. Atsaves - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:12 pm:

    After the incredibly violent last weekend in Chicago, Emmanuel proved Trump to be correct in his statements on Chicago violence and not an exaggerator?

    I mean, wow. Just wow. Way to go Mayor.


  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:14 pm:

    ===Trump to be correct===

    Counselor,

    You of the belief that Trump could fix the violence in two week too?

    That’s fun.


  10. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:14 pm:

    That’s too bad. Who is going to visit Rauner in Italy?


  11. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:14 pm:

    Shelby, I think you’d be surprised at who reads comments here.


  12. - Shelby Thomas Weems - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:15 pm:

    OW to answer your question: extremely seriously


  13. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:17 pm:

    Rich, my man, I think Shelby is clueless about the clientele.


  14. - Shelby Thomas Weems - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:18 pm:

    Probably true, skipped lunch today and am extremely crabby. I enjoy OW’s insight a good chunk of the time. Apologies


  15. - Shelby Thomas Weems - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:21 pm:

    Apologies again OW, I was wrong to come after you.


  16. - Michael Westen - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 5:26 pm:

    Don’t fall for it. Again. This is for show because it does help them both.


  17. - wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 7:15 pm:

    –Rauner says he’s “disappointed” in Democrat Emanuel. Rauner says public safety is an officeholder’s first duty and that Chicago’s leaders “have fundamentally failed, failed horribly.”–

    –Illinois Constitution, Article V, SECTION 8. GOVERNOR - SUPREME EXECUTIVE POWER
    The Governor shall have the supreme executive power, and shall be responsible for the faithful execution of the laws.–

    Huh. I wonder what that means — “supreme executive power” and “responsible for the faithful execution of the laws.”

    Sounds heavy.

    Good thing for Rauner that Chicago isn’t part of Illinois. Otherwise, he’d have to step up instead of just whining.


  18. - Annonin' - Thursday, Aug 9, 18 @ 7:33 pm:

    Speakin’ of violence how is GovJunk doin’ at tge prisons…word is he isleadi’ the nation on injured guards and inmates. Even with his early release scheme


  19. - Dave W - Friday, Aug 10, 18 @ 9:07 am:

    Weak response by Emmanuel.


  20. - Rod - Friday, Aug 10, 18 @ 9:52 am:

    At this point it is simply impossible to argue that state licensing of gun dealers would have made any difference in the violence last weekend. Not one gun associated with these shootings as of yesterday has been recovered. We have no idea whether straw purchasers were involved using Illinois gun dealers including the now famous Chuck’s gun shop, or the guns came from out of state, or were taken from home invasions.. In fact we have zero arrests at all in theses many shootings as of yesterday. Throwing these attacks back and forth is a sad situation given the gravity of the situation.
