Washington Governor: Obama ‘bending the arc of the moral universe forward’

Posted by on Jul 22, 2014 at 9:30 pm

Um, what?  This from the first of Obama’s five West Coast fundraisers this week:

Gov. Jay Inslee introduced Obama with a long evocation of 1960s civil rights struggles, saying Obama is “bending the arc of the moral universe forward.” Inslee also placed Obama in context with such events as the 1969 moon landing, saying Obama is “going to make history just like John Kennedy” with limits on carbon pollution.

Yeah, OK.

“I want you to help this Democratic National Committee so it can help get my Legislature elected,” Inslee added. “I have the same problem Barack Obama does.”

What’s that, everyone hates you too?

After arriving Tuesday, Obama got a quick look at Washington Park Arboretum, and a block from Blume’s home encountered his first Seattle demonstration — signs denouncing “Israeli state terrorism.”

Did he give a thumbs up?

    How on earth do you bend an arc forward?

    And is there some way to make sure that Jay Inslee never opens his mouth again? Maybe something involving a needle and thread?

    OMG. That’s the idiot who basically stole the election in my state. He’s enamored with executive orders, just like his arc-bending holyman. Two psychopaths, made for each other.

    If bending the saying of ‘Might makes right!’ to Might makes morally right! then Inslee is right on. The only morally right thing Obama did without callously using might with a supermajority or an agency with unchecked power like the IRS or NSA was…um, I got nothing.

    Oh yeah, I remember Jay Inslee as a local Congressman from when I was in law school at the University of Washington in Seattle. He’s stupid as fuck, even by the standards of a Washington state electorate that would send Patty Murray to the Senate. Inslee’s a gun-grabber, of course, and pushed the state to adopt a ruinous program of coddling illegal immigrants, paying their tuition at the U while gouging the life out of Americans. Washington totally deserves him.
