Van Jones "Resigns"

Now, I don't want to take full credit for Van Jones "stepping down," I suppose a little credit should go to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, and other smaller players, in exposing Van Jones as the racist Commie he is (Please note my sarcasm, I realize I did nothing). Seriously though, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Also, there is something that needs emphasizing here. How many of these crazy people have been found around Obama? How many radical, extremist, racist, socialist connections have to be discovered, before people start to realize that the company you keep says a lot about someone. If these are Obama's confidants, buddies, and advisers, couldn't we be safe in assuming that Obama shares at least some of these views?

Yes, we all have friends that don't share our own ideology. I have liberal friends, I think they are stupid liberal jerks, but I love them dearly. But, the difference is this, if I was the president of the United States of America, I wouldn't ask my liberal friends to join my cabinet. Why? Because I don't want their political advice, I think it stinks, and I don't agree with a word of it.

Another difference? My liberal friends aren't radical, they are just poor, misguided souls. They don't go around blaming Bush for 9/11, calling white people racists, they've never tried to blow up the pentagon, or said "Go- Da-- America!"

Obama 'green jobs' adviser quits amid controversy

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.

Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

(...)

The matter surfaced after news reports of a derogatory comment Jones made in the past about Republicans, and separately, of Jones' name appearing on a petition connected to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. That 2004 petition had asked for congressional hearings and other investigations into whether high-level government officials had allowed the attacks to occur.

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in his resignation statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

Jones said he has been "inundated with calls from across the political spectrum urging me to stay and fight."

I for one will truly miss the man who once referred to the human species as a plague.... ie- "Are we honeybees or are we locusts?"

The real problem is that, while he have managed to flush this particular toilet, the bowl will refill with a new incarnation. I'm afraid the lunatic left is not going to get rid of the "green"....
