Another one bites the dust! Van Jones resigns!

Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy

AP) – 13 minutes ago

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones is resigning amid controversy over past inflammatory statements.

Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs," is linked to efforts suggesting a governmental role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

Jones issued an apology on Thursday. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones "continues to work in the administration."

The White House issued a statement early Sunday saying Jones had quit the administration.

(What an opportunist! You make Rev. Al Sharpton look like a pansy! You are the racist and the kind of person that divides this Country. Yeah, I said it and you are entitled to my opinion! Good riddance! VN8)

PS This is how intelligent they are over at Democratic Underground, this was one comment on the resignation of Van Jones:

Jesus Fucking Christ (this is the user name)

Obama is being the biggest wuss..he should have told the right wing...we won the election eat shit and die!!!!

(If you have never been over to the "fever swamps" you really should give it a try, it's enlightening. The venom that they spew is amazing. VN8)

Yeah ... "we won" ... how much mileage do they think they're gonna get? Ridiculous liberals.

NEVER keep the pressure off these wedge-drivers! We're beating them with their own weapons!!!

Regarding Van Jones, can you say, "HISTORY!" hehe ... looks like somebody trumped his little race card!

This is just more Obaba pushing our buttons. He needs to be careful that he doesn't accidentally hit the one marked "eject"!

Glenn Beck asked the pertinent questions: Who sponsored Jones and how in the heck did he get approved? In other words, what did BO know about Jones and when did he know it?!

Green jobs czar my big old butt. Jones hates all that we love about America - liberty and freedom. He is an unabashed Marxist, racist, and 9/11 truther. I suppose we should give him credit for being out in the open, right? Though I'm happy he's gone, I believe he's really indicative of the Administration mindset.

RLW we've won this battle, but the war is still on going. We have many more of these czars to get rid of. However, Van Jones is a good start.

VN8: DU, Kos, Huffingtonpost, and the other leftist sites truly are a fever swamp of the unhinged, America-hating, self-loathing crowd that are the Dem constituency. There are some sure enough nutty sites on the right side of the spectrum but there is one huge difference. The whack jobs on the right are ostracized by mainstream conservatives and the GOP. Those on the left are the mainstream liberals and are embraced by the Democrats. Witness the parade of big-time Dems who attend the annual Netroots convention and the involvement of DU and Kos in Dem party affairs.

Jones wasn't unusual in his beliefs and attitudes as compared to BO, Pelosi, Frank, Rev Wright, Ayers, and so on. His willingness to publicly express himself as if he were in a web chat with fellow travelers was almost refreshing!

Now, the big question: Will anyone in the MSM hammer Gibbs or BO about Jones?

Byron York, a sometimes contributor to FOX News and a regular contributor to National Review and the Washington Examiner totaled the number of mentions made in the MSM about Jones: 0 as of yesterday.

A commenter named Bill had this to say on York's post: Is anyone surprised? Can you imagine if Bush appointed a "Czar" to oversee 30 billion taxpayer dollars and his only qualification was working as an activist for right-wing causes? Is this crazy, or what? We are all seeing what conservatives have been talking about for years: that the mainstream media is filed will left-wingers. Thank God for guys like Byron York, Bernie Goldberg and Fox News. I asked several prople yesterday who Van Jones was and the only person who knew who he was listened to Mark Levin and was aware of what a disgrace he is. The others, who only watch CBS and NBC knew nothing about this guy!

At the risk of being a blog hog, I must add this link to Ms Underestimated recognizing Glenn Beck's contribution to shining the spotlight on Mr. Jones.

Lee, I read many of those and dear Lord, you are right. They are unhinged and foaming at the mouth. Yep, all because of one person(Glenn Beck), and the millions of citizens who watch, then do something about their government.

Remember we surround them folks,and the resignation of Van Jones proves it.

Winger, keep the pressure on, the top is going to blow off of this pressure cooker! Hope we can scrape the liberals off of the ceiling! VN8

Lee, thanks for stopping by, yep, Glen Beck went after them tooth and nail and the fever swamps are going after him tooth and nail! It's kind of scary. VN8

Yep, Beck is under fire quite a bit, but again, it's all name-calling liberal nonsense. Everything he has brought up about the Obama agenda and Van Jones' hatred is true and verifiable. If liberals keep relying on these anecdotal tactics, the "court of public opinion" will wind up going with the evidence, sending the liberals packing. The show starts in 2010!
