Rhode Island Joins the ATM Club

This election cycle seems to involve a lot of snubs,  Some Democrats distancing themselves from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi others are Shying away from President Obama, but Obama pissed of gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio when he found out that Obama wouldn’t endorse him.

“He can take his endorsement and really shove it”, Caprio told John Depetro and the WPRO morning news. Caprio told WPRO he did not seek the President’s endorsement and calls the snub Washington politics.

“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 fly over of Rhode Island. He ignored us and now he’s coming into Rhode Island and treating us like an ATM machine”, said Caprio.

Interesting Choice of words. Senator Cornyn  said the same thing about Obama’s last visit to Texas.

“I think the president is just using Texas as an ATM,” Cornyn said.

While Obama’s third visit to Texas as president will bring in truckloads of cash for the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, it will not bring in some leading Texas Democrats.

Obama probably thinks less of Texas , But the feeling is mutual.
