He was already called a lapdog. That is revolting. Why would he involve himself in such gutter politics?
And his qualifications are what....because he's loaded...or a Kennedy? What?
He is a businessman and as such has created wealth with his bare hands.
Kennedy must see this as a stepping stone to something bigger.
I'm writing in Blago.
Is he a Stalin Democrat or a Che Guevara Democrat?
The 19th Ward Democrat Irish and Catholic cult will be building statues to this guy by tomorrow morning. He was on tv today what a political hack....blah blah Rauner "what does he have to show for his time"...."Rauner is the problem"....no budget....I think there is another Irish politician to blame....pardon me.....his name is Madigan....lets see - two years versus forty years !!!
Its so great to be Irish.
Only the rich and elite need apply, ohh and immigrants too. The American is not represented in this state.
They are changing captains on the Titanic
axis of evil
"He is a businessman and as such has created wealth with his bare hands"....and the family owning the Merchandise Mart is an advantage all of us were born with, right? C'mon, get your head out of your ass.
Hes a businessman!
This guy together with the entire kennedy family is an insult to the memory of the millions of Irish that emigrated to this country in search of a better life. Just another trust fund baby that doesn't work, doesn't produce anything, wouldn't know what end of a pen to use and has no interest in learning. He has nothing in common with the everyday Joe.
we are just 3 days into the campaign and I have to say that the similarities between Kennedys campaign and the campaign of another 19th warder who ran for governor are incredible.
I believe his Daddy Joe Kennedy was into illegal booze and prostitution. I also think he was pretty fond of old Adolph back in the day. JFK had more brains but was a serious presc pain killer addict and apparently a sex addict. Uhmm his other brother Teddy was a liar, a drunk, a philanderer and probably responsible for the death of Mary Joe Kopeckne. He hid in a motel for several hours only to appear wearing a neck brace with a well crafted story about what happened. It is also known that his political advisors met with him during the time at the hotel to help craft the lies he came out with. This also gave him time to sober up. All this happening while Mary Jo was drowning in the submerged car. Facts are stubborn things ye Irish lads and lassies of the 19th Ward. By the way I am Irish by heritage -but I am an American and could basically care less about the old sod. Just so you know the Irish in Ireland pretty much hate the American Irish. Tear down your Idols to this political dynasty that is an embarrassment to the Irish immigrants of old.
That is correct, old country irish hate the narrow backs. go out to gaelic park and experience the attitude.
How do the silverbacks fit in?
I heard this clown complaining that Rauner was at fault for the problems in Illinois. I would bet that if you do a search of his political statements over the past eight years you would hear apologies for Obamas many failures. I am sure he was part of the crowd that said that Obama needed four more years to get things done. Rauner has not barely had two years. Seems like he should get the same time. Also the media has protected the Democrats who have stonewalled Rauner since day one. Our State is in trouble and has been for years. They want higher taxes forever and ever. I am sure there will be a lot of "Proud Union Homes" supporting this billionaire and blaming Trump for their layoffs. They will be willing to give this goof plenty of time to fix the problems. Meanwhile Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Wisonsin and Kentucky are growing their economies.
It is rauners fault.
I felt sorry for Rauner when he was running. Because if you cant get rid of Madigan then no one will ever succeed in making Illinois a better place.
JFK was the only brother that wasn't a socialist. Bobby and Teddy were tax and spend socialists. Bobby was that way only to piss his father off. JFK is dead, get over it.
I had Heard Rose Bielelcki was goiong to run for Mayor
I would vote for her.
Man that is great, lets get him two years as Governor and then run for President,we need a Kennedy back in the whitehouse.
He sits there with his sh*t eating grin when he announces. The first thing he says is a total lie. Like Rauner is the cause of our problems. Rauner may not be the solution but this carpetbagger uber rich socialist and his "cures" for our fiscal illness in ILLinois is not more spending and more taxes. That is exactly what got us to this point. Look at the electoral map. We are surrounded by a sea of "red" states. Republicans who are keeping their taxes reasonable, balancing budgets. If their states were worse off because of evil and uncaring Republican policies then why are people LEAVING IL and why are people moving into these other states? It aint for the welfare.
"It is Rauners fault". Really? They have refused to pass any budget or any reforms at all. The Democrat solution is the same over and over again. And they control everything in this state. More taxes, anti business policies that kill jobs. Take from the "rich" ie those of us who work, and give to the unions and to the lazy welfare class. After all those people are the ones who vote Democrat at about 100%. This has been going on for years. The Democrats are just going to wait out Rauner while the state slides into chaos. The only reason they can succeed with this destructive policy is because the media is 100% for the Democrats in Chicago. Decades of problems are now the responsibility of the guy who has been their barely two years? I am sure that is what your Union Communist organizer told you but you are dead wrong. All around us are states thriving under Republican leadership and here in ILLinois we are still stuck on stupid.
A GREAT AMERICAN DONT YOU KNOW
