Is This Really a Smackdown or Sourgrapes?

Democratic candidate for Governor in Rhode Island, Frank Caprio, was not endorsed by President Obama. Caprio is running against former US Republican Senator, Lincoln Chaffee, who supported Obama in 2008 when he was running for President. The President has not endorsed either candidate. Caprio was asked during a radio interview about the President not endorsing him. His response was "He can take his endorsement and shove it" and then proceeded to talk about the President not coming to visit Rhode Island after a recent flood. It will be interesting to see if the press gives the entire background story involving Chaffee or will they simply just run with Caprio's comments and just proclaim it a smack down of the President and not explain on air the entire story?
