I most certainly am NOT joking, Captain USA. He was right about the Iraq War (the only Republican who voted against it), he was right about the Bush tax cuts being too expensive for this country to afford and he was right about 38 Studios. And yet it was Don Carcieri and his radio-show lackey John DePetro who howled about what a great coup this was to "steal" this company away from Massachusetts, Chafee was against it!!
Learn the facts, Captain USA.

Of course Gov. Chafee had nothing to do with the bankruptcy! Only idiots and know-nothings like John DePetro ever thought so. His hatred of Gov. Chafee comes across every time he's on the airwaves, it's a joke! DePetro is one of the LEAST INFORMED people about what happened with 38 Studios. He refuses to admit that Chafee was RIGHT (and he and Carcieri and the rest of the idiots who wanted Schilling to bring his company to RI at any cost, were WRONG). RI is lucky to have Gov. Chafee!!
