Obama skips RI speech on the economy to face Ebola threat.

WPRI.com has reported that the President’s speech at Rhode Island College  is a no-go.

President Barack Obama has canceled a planned trip to Rhode Island in order to follow up on Wednesday’s cabinet meeting on the government’s response to the Ebola outbreak.

Obama was expected to speak on the economy Thursday afternoon at Rhode Island College.

We guess this is kind of bad news/good news for the RIC students who were complaining this morning they couldn’t get tickets to the event…and for one professor we know who got tickets, only to realize that she had a scheduling conflict, namely a class to teach.

For those of you in suspense about which gubernatorial candidate the President was going to endorse (SPOILER ALERT)…it’s Democrat Gina Raimondo! Alan Fung, better luck next time.
