Caprio "Shove it POTUS"

Was in the truck this AM and heard this live.
Death for his campaign?

Either way, crude, but won't hurt him. the droves began calling in and saying it just shows how he'll stand up the feds. Until he falls lock step in with the dems of course.



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

10:04 AM EDT on Monday, October 25, 2010

By Jack Perry
Journal Staff writer

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.

Obama won't endorse Caprio during R.I. visit

WPRO

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.

Former Republican Senator Chafee endorsed Mr. Obama for president in 2008.

Caprio went on to criticize Mr. Obama for not visiting Rhode Island during this spring's record floods.

Caprio said Rhode Islanders "are hurting," that the state has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and "now he's coming into Rhode Island treating us like an ATM machine."

Mr. Obama will visit a Woonsocket factory and raise money for Democratic candidates during his visit.

Running out of steam? Campaign bullwank.



I am NOT voting for Chafee. Guy is a tool. Less likely I'm voting for Caprio.

Are you saying you'd vote for Linc Chafee?This a-hole is actually running on a platform to add the sales tax to so far exempt items with the most notable being groceries.He also wants to increase the tax on gas!I guess you have money and can afford Chafee?I'm just a working class stiff who CAN'T afford him.

As far as Robataille or as you put aka Carcieri-lite,he's really the only viable candidate for gov.Before you rack Carcieri's record don't forget his entire stay as gov was with a veto proof Democratic assembly,Carcieri couldn't pass gas without the assembly's approval.

This is a classic lesson of think before you speak.So please think before you speak!And if you've really thought hard and you're still going to vote Chafee all I can say is:If god exists he needs to save us from people like you.

Everything I've thus said is on the premise that you're a Chafee man.If you are not then my apologies.

Robitaille has no experience governing. I know he was Carcieri's chauffer or something. Caprio reminded me of Raymond L.S. Patrarca with his sneer (minus the cig dangling) while he told Obama to shove it.

Chafee wants a 1% tax on food and clothing to balance the Budget.
Economically its a small fee.He also is STRONG on conservation,

BTW what have the other 2 candidates brought to the table considering their "experience"?

Excellent try but no.Increasing taxes is a no go with workers like me.I'm amazed that in this day and age anyone will accept a tax increase,we pay enough already.When is enough "enough"?

Also lets not forget the increase in the gas tax he wants.Lets not forget his acceptance of contributions from most of the unions who drive the cost of anything up,hell I live in Tiverton I just dealt with what the teachers' union did to our property taxes.Linc accepted their money too.

Conservationist my ass...he excepts the money now as he has in the past and delivers nothing.

Chafee is a horror show for this state.

Nor am I. THough Ken Block is probably the best of all of them by far - he has zero shot.

Rock - if it wasn't for Carcieri being somewhat a thorn in RI Guvmint, we'd really be screwed.

Again you bash Chafee, but what experience and programs do the other 2 offer? Hope and Change? I've had enough of that.

I am not a Chafee lover but he seems the best of the bunch to me and that is all that I care about when I am in the booth.

STC - Chafee is the most "Hope and Change" guy of the lot. He can't get through an unrehearsed statement without stumbling (worse than me ). In the past I have voted for him, that ship though, has sailed.

God save us from people like me, huh?

OK.
So here is how I view it in 3min b/c thats what I have this morning to spend on this.

1. Caprio will raise taxes. Period. He can say whatever he wants about Chaffee's taxes, but he will raise taxes. I also don't trust him further than I can throw him. He epitomizes slimy Rhode Island politics

2. Robataille will likely continue the Carcieri trend of cutting money to the towns. Guess what, local property taxes go up. We will continue grid lock of getting nothing done good or (bad in this state).

3. Chaffee wants a 1% sales tax. I view this is the 'most' (in quotes) optional of the taxes. he seems to have a reasonable plan to try and get some jobs back in RI and working towards a balanced budget. I also think he has some integrity, which Caprio clearly does not. I want to see what someone who has a track record of voting for what they think is right instead of partly line. Is he a bit hokey and 'aww shucks' in front of a camera? yes. I could give a %$%$%$%$ about that. If I wanted a polished, slick candidate, it would be Caprio. as long as he can get the job done, thats fine w/ me.

Lets put this for-instance on it. My average grocery bill for me, the wife and kid is say ~$125/week. the 1% increase on the exempt item will add ~$1/week. Will we starve? No, we will buy a store brand vs. the brand name, or buy more items on sale. I'll make coffee at home instead of going out every morning. Gas, I'll drive less. When gas was 4.00/gal, I certainly thought about when to just go driving around, running errands etc. Would 1% on the monthly gas bill break us, again, no, but it might make me rethink a few ways to save a buck.

Did the 1% food tax make you stop eating out? It didn't stop me, but we eat out less than 1x per week. Does it suck seeing taxes always going up? yes, but it is short sighted to think that the other two candidates won't directly or indirectly increase taxes. How much did your property taxes go up last year? I know how much mine went up, and my town is not in the worst shape in the state. I bet the 1% sales tax is a lot less than the average increase in property taxes, especially b/c it is a pretty small amount.

"God save us from people like me"
Right, b/c you think what, I'm some silver spoon who votes one party blindly? That we don't scrimp and save? That I don't think about my vote long and hard or that I am not working class? nice try to to categorize me with a personal attack. Welcome to my ignore list. say hi to ScottW.

Please remember the reason the budget isn't balanced certainly isn't because we don't pay enough taxes......

A WAshington Dem insider said it was DUMB move by Obama. He is asking dems across the counrty to follow him, but not supporting his own party. All becuase he owes Chafee.

The problem isn't that we don't raise enough revenue, the problem is we spend too much.

You RI'ers are really screwed. MA isn't much better, but at least we have a better selection of candidates to choose from.

Hey buddy

last time I checked anyone can express their opinion without you passing judgement so stick your ignore button. I vote for who I want when I want. I also have a family and a job and pay a ton of property taxes.

Sorry if I didn't offer you some cheese with your whine.
