John Kass: Ives “Crushes” Rauner in Tribune Governor Debate

First Debate Gives Peek at Rauner’s Primary Challenger

John Kass had harsh words for Governor Rauner in his review of the Tribune’s Governor Debate.

“Rauner is a tough guy, a man who’s made hundreds of millions of dollars in business deals. He made his own money, took his own risks, and he ran for governor in 2014 because the state was sinking. But on Monday, judging just from his eyes and body language after debating Ives — a West Point graduate — Rauner looked like a man who’d been whipped.”

“Jeanne Ives crushed it so hard, way up into the upper deck, Rauner’s re-election dreams bouncing up there all alone, echoing desperately, and all the governor seemed to be able to say was “Mike Madigan” again and again. How many times did he say Mike Madigan? You couldn’t keep count.”

  1. The Old Axiom is, a Picture is worth a 1,000 words
    and if you wonder what is wrong here in McHenry County
    Take a good look at this picture…

  2. Too bad I can’t vote for her.

    Made my escape from Illinois before it became ‘cool’.

  3. Rauner’s current wife is pretty evil.

    Look what she does:

    “Bruce’s wife Diane Rauner has generously contributed on her own to liberal groups EMILY’s List (see here, here, here, here, here and here) and Personal PAC (see here, here, here, here and here). Mrs. Rauner also contributed to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (see here), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (see here), and Democrats Barack Obama (see here, here and here), Evan Bayh (see here), Sara Feigenholtz (see here), Bill Foster (see here), Rahm Emanuel (see here), Melissa Bean (see here and here), Tammy Duckworth (see here), Amy Klobuchar (see here), Dan Seals (see here, here, here and here), John Kerry (see here), Claire McCaskill (see here and here), Debbie Stabenow (see here), Jan Schakowsky (see here, here and here), Maria Cantwell (see here and here), Mary Jo Kilroy (see here), Pat Dowell (see here), Frank Mautino (see here), Jeff Schoenberg (see here, here, here and here), Kip Kirkpatrick (see here) and Heather Steans (see here).”

  4. Listen to Laura Ingraham on 1410 AM from 2p to 4p weekdays,
    she’s AWSOME !

  5. Wouldn’t it be nice if one of the bigly Chicago radio stations somehow moved from its leftist positions somehow (with a change in top management and/or ownership) and had talk show hosts such as Laura Ingraham. Nah. They continue to, very cleverly, brainwash and mislead their listeners with left wing bias.
