Gina we hardly knew ye

Toll-mondo 


Was it an explosion or implosion? No reason to believe Governor Gina Raimondo had an inkling her political life was going to end in April of 2016, or maybe she would have grabbed money from URI and taken a trip out of town. The month of April will be remembered as the month Queena went from a struggling Governor to a lame duck defeated one. Now, she is forced to finish out the rest of her term as a walking/talking  Rhode Island failure, almost a " human 38 studios." A combination of arrogance and incompetence has sealed her fate as the " new Chafee." Voters will be laughing all Summer over the botched " cooler and warmer," while waiting for the next Raimondo gaffe. The Governor has now announced a new " state listening tour,"acknowledging she is out of touch with people,  but all she is hearing is more complaining and laughing. The Brown poll released was quickly dismissed as having about as much credibility as a 2nd grade science project, and even that poll had the Raimondo approval rating around 30%. The problem for Queena, is her inner circle knows her approval rating is closer to 20%, but not a clue what to do about it.  The biggest defeat fell on primary night with Raimondo failing to deliver Rhode Island for Hillary, a national humiliation that will never be forgotten. Rhode Islanders may disagree and argue over various things, but the general dislike over Governor " Tollmondo" has actually brought people together. The media is waiting for a major staff shakeup which could include her communication director, but nothing is certain. Do you see cranes in the sky? I don't .
