PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Democratic candidate for Rhode Island governor told President Barack Obama on Monday to "shove it" after learning Obama would not endorse him.If there's any more proof needed that Barack Obama doesn't give a damn about his own party's future, then this would be it. After wasting time and effort supporting Blanche Lincoln in the Arkansas U.S. Senate primary over the more electable Bill Halter, and supporting Arlen Specter over Joe Sestak in the PA U.S. Senate primary, and potentially screwing the Democrats' chances of retaining that seat as well, this should be the third strike that wakes up the party leadership.
Frank Caprio's campaign last week said he would welcome the president's endorsement. But on Monday, the same day Obama was set to make his first visit to Rhode Island as president and a day after the White House said Obama would not endorse anyone, Caprio angrily told WPRO-AM that Obama can "take his endorsement and really shove it."
RI Dem: Obama Can 'Shove It' For Not Endorsing Him
Fat chance that will happen, but there has to be some point at which even they will see the light.
UPDATE: I could probably add pissing off and pissing on his base to the list of things Obama's done to ruin the Democratic Party, but so many other Democrats have cooperated there that it's hard to think of that as anything but a group effort.
