"Now he's coming into Rhode Island treating us like an ATM machine,"
Frank Caprio, Democratic candidate for governor - Rhode Island
This was said on Monday after Obama refused to endorse Caprio for Governor. Obama would not endorse him out of respect for his friend Lincoln Chaffee,
Caprio came out today and stated he regretted saying this about Obama.
He may very well regret it. It is more likely that he wishes he hadn't said it publicly.
The comment itself, and the attempted retraction, though highlight a real dilemma in the Democratic Party.
Democrats on one hand are trying to appear that they are all on the same page.
While untrue, this fits in with the fringe media's narrative that it is actually the GOP who has an ongoing civil war which is ripping the party apart while the Democrats are all united and sit around and hug puppies, and kiss babies, and bake apple pies, blah, blah, blah. You've all seen the MSM message.
But I digress.
Caprio's remarks put the real truth inside the Democratic Party on display, they can't stand each other.
There is, contrary to the public misinformation, a very big fight inside the Democratic Party.
The far left is controlling the national agenda for the Democratic Party right now. The unholy trinity of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barrack Obama are trying to enact their destructive uber-liberal policies on the American public and candidates like Frank Caprio are stuck out in the public finding themselves explaining how destroying the country with socialized health care, energy taxes to pay for a global warming fraud, higher taxes, and job-killing regulations all make sense.
One would almost pity them if it were not for the fact that most of them supported these plans until the public heard about them and all Hell broke lose. If they had not supported the effort to get these three elected to their current positions, either directly or indirectly. Finally, pity for them if they had not all been out front leading the "change" and "hope" cheers two years ago when this fateful administration was being shamefully and deceitfully sold to an ignorant (due to lack of honest misinformation) American public.
Now they cannot run away fast enough.
Just don't tell the public, they think it's the GOP that is fighting among themselves.
