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.
“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?
