R.I. Pol to Prez - Take Endorsement and Shove It!
Joe Wilson cry of "You Lie" to the president during the state of the union address doesn't seem so dramatic anymore. Now, members of his own party are telling the Nobel Peace Prize winner to screw!
Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio, in a radio interview Monday morning, reacted angrily to President Obama's decision not to endorse him during a visit to the Ocean State Monday.
"He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I'm concerned," Caprio told talk-show host John DePetro during an interview on WPRO-AM.
In Monday morning's Providence Journal, John Mulligan of The Journal's Washington bureau reported that Mr. Obama would not endorse Democrat Caprio during a visit to Rhode Island Monday.
Caprio said Rhode Islanders "are hurting," that the state has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and "now he's coming into Rhode Island treating us like an ATM machine."
Caprio says that Obama wants to help independent, and former Left Leaning Republican, Lincoln Chafee win the Governor's seat.
