With Mike Madigan in control (Lucifer), what do you expect him to have accomplished?
I love this blog but clearly it has a knee jerk dislike of Rauner. I agree that he has been ineffective but he simply does not have the votes for what he was elected to do. Madigan has stiff armed him completely and our local yokel puppets that represent us...ie Cunningham and Fran Hurley are not on our side. We wont get anyone more competent. The only thing we will get is another Democrat. They are already grooming the blue blood "man of the people" Kennedy! What a joke. We will just get another "progressive" to run this state further into the ground. Rauner fought his way into the driver seat and the Democrats are in the passenger seat and back seats pummeling Rauner and trying to grab the wheel. Meanwhile we are speeding towards the cliff. We are blaming Rauner because we are still driving toward that cliff and he hasn't been able to fight the maniacs trying to direct our state right over that cliff. I don't understand the sentiment.
He should have left his ego back home.
