Major Issues Remain Fuzzy

Regarding the analysis piece on page 5A of today’s print edition of the Kitsap Sun, I have some thoughts. First, I responded to an announcement – at lunch in a major insurance company – by a young man that he was an analyst, by asking, “What are the first 4 letters of the word analyst?” I would respond to the article in a more reasoned, less personal way.

First, the use of the word “fuzzy” to describe Jay’s plans is interesting considering a former candidate for President used the term to describe his opponent’s math. The term’s use here is much different, however. It is just as inappropriate to accuse Jay of “Fuzzy” policy statements. Jay’s strongest attribute in the political arena is his listening skills. I first met him at a political event in Seattle where he asked my opinion about an issue. I was honored, of course. I responded and he replied that he would take it into advisement. Politicians who get too specific on issues break two important rules for candidates, firstly giving his/her opponents grist for second-guessing; and secondly, taking too much baggage into office if he/she still wins. It is Mr. Inslee’s very listening strength that makes him the superior candidate for governor. He also reveals his penchant for engaging both parties for solutions.

Vote for this man for governor of the State of Washington. He will make you proud.
