Quinn Finally Concedes

  • Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn conceded Wednesday afternoon to Republican challenger Bruce Rauner, a day after the most expensive and bitter contest for chief executive in Illinois history.

    "It's clear that we do not have enough votes to win the election," Quinn said.

    The governor pledged to work with Rauner on a transition and said he would spend his remaining two months in office pushing to raise the minimum wage, which he made a central theme of his campaign.
Quinn won only a single county in all of Illinois - Cook. Rauner managed to peel off the other three or four and leave Quinn over 100,000 votes down.

The Quinn-bots and Madigan-hoes have been burning up the comment sections in force. Rauner hasn't even proposed, introduced and sponsored a single piece of legislation, yet he's the anti-Christ in a state of anti-Christs who have been slowly destroying the entire system over the past 20 years. Give it a rest - the election is over. Let's see if there's an actual stumble before throwing the whole thing away.

And remember, Madigan and Cullerton have veto-proof majorities in the House and Senate. There's still plenty of blame headed their way for stuff that gets to Rauner's desk.

“The two groups, I believe, that should have a special deal that’s much better and different than voters, are police and firefighters because they risk their lives, and that’s a different arrangement,” Rauner said.

Something to refer back to about Rauner and how he feels about first responders.

We should hold him up to his words and make him see through to this special deal he has for first responders. Hopefully it is to at least fund our pension or offer something better.

Unless his "special deal" is only special in his eyes then we are basically screwed.

Yeah...

The "Community Organizer" in-chief says: "I hear you America."

Hearing and actually listening are two entirely different things...

He ain't gotta listen cuz he's been told his entire adult life that he's smarter than everybody else.

America is sad, sore and sorry for sending these smart m/fers from Hyde Park, the Gold Coast and the North Shore to Washington D.C.

Nary a living ass from Chicago should ever be allowed to hold national office ever again...

Nary an ass from anywhere BUT Chicago should ever be allowed to run for Mayor...

Why CAN'T an old street cop run this city?
He knows all the rotten m/fers who need to be told "NO!"

Heh... Every aldermope, news whore, millionaire on the taxpayer tit lawyer and North Shore quid pro quo big money donating lick-hitter would be forced to give their personal Feeb note taker a piggy-back ride where ever they stagger off to.

This will be a far sight better use of resources than the Feebs parachuting into town for the express purpose of going through a Policeman's underwear drawer while the many swing-dicks and hang-tits from Daley Inc. and Rahm & Co. run from the wreckage with ass-pockets full of Copper and tax payer money.

About time all those Commie Bastards who feed at the public trough get a wake-up call.

The order of business should be:

CUT TAXES (high-tax states drive out businesses and therefore, eliminate jobs. You eliminate jobs, you eliminate the tax base - THAT PAYS YOUR SALARY - AND BENEFITS. Wake up - money doesn't grow on trees - especially in Illinois)

CUT WELFARE (Too many people feeding off the public teat. Cut out every illegal Bastard on ANY entitlement program. Also check for scammers who have more than one LINK card or other entitlement ID)

CUT ALL THE PENSION SCAMS (Got two pensions? Pick one. No more double-dipping. No more "Stacking on the salary" on the last couple of years to jack up the pension benefits - the Commie teachers are notorious in this area)

CUT WASTE AND SLACKERS - Do your job and get paid. Slack off and get fired. Simple.

All the cry baby whiners can go find a real job in the private sector and find out what a "great deal" they had working for the government.

Work for someone who has to make a damn profit and has real competition. You'll see a LOT DIFFERENT leadership style.

CUT OUT PHONY LEADERSHIP IN GOVERNMENT - half the supervisors are there for patronage - not for leading people. They couldn't lead a one-car funeral in Chinatown.

Cut out the "merit" hacks and give people real leaders. See how fast morale changes and people who want to work again. Instill a passion for the job and a sense-of-urgency and you'll get back the CPD that it should be.

I saw a passenger van in the hood, with a sign on the side that said, "Souls to the Polls." It was driving seniors to the voting polls. Most of the passengers looked like they were one banana peel away from the grave they were so old. I guessed the Machine was raiding the nursing homes for voters. I wish I got a picture but we were in a backlog and I had three jobs to go to.

Makes sense. They did the same thing in Detroit and made the police and fire pensions different. Only thing those pensions lost was the COLA.but kept all the other benefits. Not so with other Detroit city pensions.

Let us not forget that the last time around, Quinn ran on a platform of no new taxes. After winning by a .3% margin, Quinn then put thru the largest tax increase in Illinois history....within 60 days of his being re-elected.

Quinn set a new world speed record for the fastest break of a campaign promise.

I never forgot that, and I think a lot of other people didn't either.

Call the next case. Not a cop.

Goodbye Potato-Head, its been a real slice, you asshat.

btw, What's a real hoot is how this moron has tried, and still tries, passing himself off as an 'outsider' in Springfield & IL Politics.

Well guys and gals, this 'outsider' has been feeding off the Teat of Taxpayers as a Democrat Politician almost half of his entire adult life -- since 1982 when he was 34 years old.

So excuse us when we laugh 'Gov', as being in politics for 32 fucking years is NOT exactly what most folks would consider an 'outsider'.

'We want the power". That's what the minority leaders in NY are saying. http://nypost.com/2014/11/04/minority-leaders-blast-de-blasio-over-nypd-upheaval/

I think that's a great idea. The "majority minority" got the "power" when apartheid ended 20 years ago in South Africa and look how great things there now are. Almost one million Whites are living in squatter camps and the mayor of Johannesburg said "there will be no work for whites". That is their version of affirmative action aka "black economic empowerment". Superb. Well done. The African National Congress (communists) also claimed 51% of every business. Smart move. Next is 100%. And what is even more exciting is the UN states that the White South Africans aka the Afrikaners are at stage 6 of 8 for genocide. http://www.genocidewatch.org/southafrica.html
And I am so glad we have open borders so that the millions of 3rd world (non-white) illegal aliens can come on in and over 1.5 million legal immigrants a year also join us. Oh, the joys of diversity. The multiculturalism is so vibrant.

See any correlation between Afrikaners and us? Let's give them the power, shall we?

Potato Head was hoping that the ghost of old man DaleyAbb could transform 100,000 absentee ballots into enough votes to surmount Rauner's 150,000 vote lead. It happened often enough when the old man was alive.

Bill Daley has been named to Rauner's transition team along with former Gov. Edgar. Finally we now see why Bill Daley suddenly pulled out of the governor's primary in the spring. Rauner was the guy. Rauner got Rahm to talk to Richy Daley who got the word to brother Bill and Bill, ever the loyal soldier, got the word and dutifully dropped out. Look for the Daley family to profit handsomely under RINO Governor Rauner.

Reminds me of back in the day when we manned the polls all day. I had a nursing home to watch. People in their beds being rolled in to vote.
"Now Mrs. Jones, just point your finger here - no here - and that will suffice to have you vote the straight democratic ticket, just like you want."
All legit mmmm hmmm. Probably why we did away with the police watching the polls.

Right, he was the "best he could be." Not a dishonest dollar in those billions. No snake oil sold to the State of Illinois. Remember Comp Dent? The dental insurance that was so good my dentist advised me to pretend I didn't have dental insurance? That was part or all Bruce Rauner.

Remember political insider, whore monger and crackhead Stuart Levine? He was making $25,000 a month being all he could be also, and by hanging around with his pal and fellow political insider Bruce Rauner.

Yeah boy, we wouldn't want to insult that paragon of virtue and individual accomplishment, Bruce Rauner now, would we?

The Illinois Income tax was not a new tax, it was an old tax that came about when Richard Ogilvie was governor. Republican. He got booted out the following election also. Then governor after governor never eliminated that tax, they just enjoyed spending the proceeds.
