    Caprio's reaction to snub? President can 'shove it'

    Caprio's reaction to snub? President can 'shove it'

    Caprio's reaction to snub? President can 'shove it' - Projo 7 to 7 News Blog | Rhode Island news | The Providence Journal


    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- 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.

    Mulligan quoted independent candidate Lincoln Chafee's spokesman saying Obama's decision "is a victory for Linc Chafee," who is one of Caprio's opponents in the race for governor.

    Not exactly, the Independent candidate and former Republican Lincoln Chafee endorsed Obama in 2008, so it would not be cool to endorse his competition. Lincoln Chafee would do a great job as govenor.

    Competition, from within the Presidents own party.

    If you were president faced with same situation, what would you do? Would you be loyal to the person or the party?

    loyal? is that why they are taking money from some canidates and pushing it to others? That's what you call "loyalty"?

    That's not at all what I said. Do you have this thread confused with another, maybe?

    Supporting the ideals and positions of my party would be more important that avoiding pissing off someone outside my party who happened to support me 2 years ago.

    The fact that Lincoln Chafee was also a Republican until 2007 and Obama still won't support Caprio, must be grating to him as well.

    To each his own, Whovian. Layout the postitions of both candidates and you may find out why President Obama doesn't endorse the Democratic nominee over Chafee. I don't know all the details. Lincoln Chafee is fairly liberal; that's why he left the Republican party.
