There was an obvious presence of liberal supporters for this particular Czar. The Kenyan wanted him. I wonder if they all did? If not, wouldn't that make them disagreeing with their messianic Kenyan?

Obama 'green jobs' adviser quits amid controversy


  • AP – File - Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly 'green jobs,' …
By WILL LESTER, Associated Press Writer Will Lester, Associated Press Writer – 3 mins ago
WASHINGTON – White House environmental adviser Van Jones, embroiled in a controversy over past inflammatory statements, resigned after what he called a "vicious smear campaign against me."
The resignation, announced early Sunday, came as President Barack Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.
Jones, who specialized in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality, was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the Sept. 11 attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.
Obama did not endorse Jones' comments, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.
"What Van Jones decided was that the agenda of this president was bigger than any one individual," said Gibbs. Jones "understood he was going to get in the way" and becoming a liability to the administration, the spokesman said on ABC's "This Week."
Jones issued an apology on Thursday for his past statements.
The matter surfaced after news reports of a derogatory comment Jones made in the past about Republicans, and separately, of Jones's name appearing on a petition connected to the events surrounding the 2001 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."
But he said he cannot in good conscience ask his colleagues to spend time and energy defending or explaining his past.
Jones flatly said in an earlier statement that he did not agree with the petition's stand on the Sept. 11 attacks and that "it certainly does not reflect my views, now or ever."
As for his other comments he made before joining Obama's team, Jones said, "If I have offended anyone with statements I made in the past, I apologize."
Despite his apologies, Republicans demanded Jones quit.
Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana said in a statement, "His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate." Missouri Sen. Christopher "Kit" Bond said Congress should investigate Jones's fitness for the job.
Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck repeatedly denounced Jones after a group the adviser co-founded, ColorofChange.org, led an advertising boycott against Beck's show to protest his claim that Obama is a racist.
James Rucker, the organization's executive director, has said Jones had nothing to do with ColorofChange.org now and didn't even know about the campaign before it started.
Jones, well-known in the environmental movement, was a civil-rights activist in California before shifting his attention to environmental and energy issues. He is known for laying out a broad vision of a green economy. Conservatives have harshly criticized him for having left-wing political views.

Nancy Sutley, who heads the White House environmental council, said in a statement early Sunday that Jones "had been a strong voice for creating jobs that improve energy efficiency and utilize renewable resources." ___

What is it with these Dem's, apparently they don't understand being held responsible for their statements and actions.

Personal Responsibility is a fundamental quality of conservative Free thinkers, Lack of Responsibility is a fundamental quality of Libtards!

There was an obvious presence of liberal supporters for this particular Czar. The Kenyan wanted him. I wonder if they all did? If not, wouldn't that make them disagreeing with their messianic Kenyan?
Doc, of course you are correct. Hussein and team wanted him. He fits their aggenda. The communist aggenda is to destroy capitalism.

I was so upset at all of this crap, I got up a 2:00 AM this morning, and e-mailed O'Reilly to stop his fair sh----t, and start hitting Hussein hard.

Re opening......

I saw an interview on Fox with a Repub Congressman, (don't remember which one, but they're all interchangable for the most part), that said these "czars" violate the Constitution. He also said that this commie prick was a prime example of the LACK of REQUIRED background checks prior to any appointment into the WH staff in any capacity....Even the maids. This example raises a bright red flag and he is going to REOPEN inquiries into ALL the messiah's czar's backgrounds, as well as challenge those appointments that bypassed congressional scrutiny.....The house of cards is falling. Between this fiasco and the "smoking gun" birth certificate, it should be a very interesting "news" week. ............. Ray

PS: So, how do we prevent lying Joe, and then paloser, from sliding into the WH? That is a whole different, extremely scary, scenario.....Another call to arms to true Americans...........
