(PROVIDENCE, RI) Rhode Island’s congressional delegation is giving the president’s inaugural address a big thumbs up. The address touched on same-sex marriage, the environment and the need for cooperation.

Has there ever been a defeated presidential candidate any less gracious than Mitt Romney? Or has he been sucking on a lemon since his loss to President Obama last week?
In a conference call with large campaign donors Wednesday, the defeated Republican candidate blamed his loss on “big gifts’’ that the president has been giving out to “the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people’’ as well as to women during his first term.
