Baraq is generating some huge campaign dollars this year from his crony capitalist affiliates. The Dems may have an enthusiasm deficit this fall but they won’t be outgunned monetarily.

The locals better get their butts over to the pot shops before the other Washingtonians hit town.

I remember when the east side was conservative.

One thing about the communists - they’re really good at manipulating people’s minds.

Unfortunately, they're all sold out even beforehand.

Yes, makes zero sense for this guy to be a communist lover. It would be nice to know if he’s a sincere rat or just a social climbing rat.

I wonder if one is worse than the other.

Looks like a lot of space in there for some Central American “refugees”.

Re: “gee you’d think the CEO of Costco would be a capitalist.”

He’s actually the retired “founder,” so, that’s even more depressing.

He made a prime time speech at the Democrat Convention in 2008, so, he is not even a recent convert.

Clinton used to do this too. They love to interrupt the lives of the common folk. It makes them feel important.

The fewer trips that Bush took were mostly planned to minimize the inconvenience of the local population. The tyrant left seems to try to maximize it.

I remember when the east side was conservative.

There was a time when they were. Combined with eastern WA, there was at least some balance in the state's vote. However, looking at Nov 2012's vote, they've swung left with Seattle, making WA's middle/right electorate pretty much non competitive.

Watch for more left iniatives to pass easily (and you thought legal pot was liberal)

It would be cheaper for taxpayers and more profitable for the left, if the treasury just wrote the Democrats a check for the cost of the trip - 10% handling fee.

This crap is just more of the leftist money laundering scheme of taking a cut of tax payer money the democrats and obama gave the rich cronies. It is sickening and criminal.
