    White House Adviser Van Jones on why Democrats can't get any legislation passed: "Republicans are assholes"

    Van Jones, the Obama administration's "green jobs" adviser, told a group of listeners earlier in the year that the reason Republicans are stonewalling the president is because they're "assholes."
    Jones' remarks were recorded in a video from February that was posted to YouTube.
    He made the remark during an energy lecture in Berkeley, Calif., after a woman in the audience asked him why President Obama and congressional Democrats were having trouble moving legislation -- even though Republicans, with a smaller majority, didn't have as much trouble earlier in the Bush administration.
    "Well, the answer to that is, they're assholes," Jones said, to uproarious laughter. "That's a technical, political science term."
    The questioner responded, "I was afraid that that was the answer."
    But Jones said that, even though Obama is "not an asshole," others have to step up the fight.
    "Now, I will say this. I can be an asshole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity," he said.

    Funny. This is the Van Jones who is a Truther. This is the Van Jones who organized rallies in support of the cop killer Mumia. This is Van Jones, well know blowhard mouthpiece.

    We are now walking to a civil war folks. We've stopped stumbling.

    Saw this on Glenn Beck's site. Glenn Beck - Current Events & Politics - Glenn Beck: Personnel Is Policy

    Seems that we need to pay particular attention to who Obama chooses to surround himself with.

    We've laid this all out in their own words, for weeks. But, for the last 24 hours, everybody has been talking about the Republicans instead. Apparently what's captured the notice of so many people since we played the video on Wednesday, is the fact that Van Jones called Republicans a naughty name in February of this year.


    Well, Jones has apologized. He's sorry he said the A-word about Republicans.


    He is not sorry however, about any of these things:


    That he's an avowed communist


    That he believes we need a "whole new system"


    No apology for his campaign to free communist cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal


    Not a word from Van Jones about being a member of the revolutionary, communist group, STORM


    He has not apologized for his radical past as a black nationalist


    There's been no apology for saying that we should redistribute wealth to Indians:


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    In another time and place, he could have been Felix Dzerzhinsky, or Reinhard Heydrich.

    CTR and Morris said it clearly.

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
