FRANK T. CAPRIO OF RHODE ISLAND, A DISRESPECTFUL DEMOCRAT!
The other time it was the South Carolina hilly-billy Representative Joe Wilson who shamelessly shouted "You Lie" at the president while he was delivering an address at the House of Representatives chambers. The next time it was a Supreme Court associate Justice Samuel A. Alito who mouthed "That is not true" at President Obama while he was delivering a State of the Union address at the National Assembly. Now Frank T. Caprio, a democrat, running for Rhode Island governor has joined the bandwagon of these highly disrespectful 'racist' Americans who cannot live with the fact that a black-man is the president of America and have gone out of their ways to openly show disrespect to the president as well as the office which he represents. Icheoku condemns this crass disrespect for the office of the president and President Barack Obama in particular through the thuggish misbehavior of these public officials. That Republican Party's mega-phone and administrator in chief, Rush Limbaugh, lampoons the president on a daily basis has become a fact of life in America and you wonder how much of such disrespect was shown to previous United States presidents; and not by members of even their own political party. Rhode Island governorship candidate Frank T. Caprio overstepped his bounds by this outburst and no amount of a political adrenalin justifies such demeaning language used against the president of the United States of America, Barack Obama. The fact that this human-being has not yet apologized for this uncalled for remark several days after shows that it probably was not a spur of the moment outburst, but something much like a smouldering dislike of the president which just boiled over. The good news however is that hundreds of Frank T. Caprios of America cannot change the fact of what America has become - a more tolerable and accommodating politically changed land and that after President Obama will follow, several more other minority presidents.
In the offending remark, Rhode Island governor wanna be, Frank Caprio, said "I never asked President Obama for his endorsement and what’s going on here is really Washington insider politics at its worst. He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I am concerned" Icheoku queries if the president's endorsement does not mean anything to this Sicilian and assuming he never asked for nor expected it as he claimed, why did he go out of his way and a step too far to use the 's' word against the person of the president and the office which he represents. Does this Italian not know that when he tells the president of the United States to 'shove it' that he was telling all Americans whose president Obama is, to also shove it? Anyway Icheoku will not belabor the impropriety of the impetuous outburst of Frank T. Caprio here, but will defer to the people of Rhode Island who on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 will decide whether they support such an unwarranted disrespectful attack on the president with their ballots. But definitely, this very governorship candidate is not what any reasonable state would want to have as their governor and in their government house; but hey, each state gets what they deserve and the state of Rhode Island has to decide and determine what they desire and deserve on Tuesday.
