Hey, so remember when President Obama warned Vladimir Putin not to be on “the wrong side of history”? During a speech today extolling the virtues of Lyndon B. Johnson, Obama apparently amended his earlier position:
President Obama: "We are here today because we know we cannot be complacent. History travels not only forwards, but backwards and sideways."

.@WhiteHouse I know what all those words mean, but those sentences don't make any sense.

How can you stand on the wrong side of history — or any side, for that matter — when history moves forwards and backwards and sideways?

Good question. Here’s another one: What the hell is going on at the Obama White House?
Obreezy has the Stargate in the White House basement.
