I ask this question with genuine sincerity.
Why was the Dear Leader, President Obama, in as Blue a state as Rhode Island this late in the 2010 midterm election campaign?
Apparently, not to help the Democrat nominee for governor, Frank Caprio. Mr. Caprio had this for the Dear Leader, President Obama:
"He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I'm concerned."
Remember, Mr. Caprio is the Democrat nominee for governor.
It appears that President Obama is not endorsing the Democrat candidate for governor out of deference to the "independent" candidacy of former "Republican" senator and Dear Leader, President Obama supporter, Lincoln Chaffee.
Not the brightest move in one of the most Democrat states in the Union.
And Mr. Caprio had this to add in his diatribe against the Dear Leader, President Obama:
"We had one of the worst floods in the history of the United States a few months back and President Obama didn't even do a flyover of Rhode Island," Caprio said, according to WPRO. "He ignored us and now he's coming into Rhode Island and treating us like an ATM machine."
True that, Mr. Caprio.
The Dear Leader, President Obama, was in the Ocean State in another of the endless Democrat fundraisers in Providence. And he campaigned for the state's Democrat nominee's for congress. Veteran Rep Jim Langevin and candidate David Cicilline. Mr. Cicillne is running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Patrick Burp Kennedy. And the Republican challenger, John J. Loughlin II is making a very serious run at this seat. And it has been in Republican hands before as recently as the early 1990s.
Maybe this is one of the peripheral reasons the Dear Leader, President Obama took time out to visit Rhode Island.
It just does not make sense for the Dear Leader, President Obama, to be in a state like Rhode Island this late in the game.
Unless there is trouble brewing.
My advice is to head over to John Loughlin's website and dole a little cash or any other assistance.
It is time to put the Red back in Rhode Island Red!
