The Obama bus has claimed another victim. Say goodbye to Van Jones.
Birds of a feather flock together. Well Obama apparently just clipped the wings of his "green jobs" czar Van Jones. I wish I could have gotten in on the resignation pool for Van Jones. I predicted it would have been some time this week before Van was eventually thrown under the Obama bus like so many other people who have become liabilities. Van Jones blames his resignation was based on a "vicious smear campaign". I wonder what he thought about the vicious smear campaign he helped orchestrate against talk show host and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck? He was all for the destruction of Glenn Beck at the time. I guess Karma is a bitch. What goes around in the end did come around for Van Jones. Glenn's ratings are at an all time high, and he has picked up some new sponsors thanks to his record ratings. On the other side of the scale, Van Jones has been forced to resign in disgrace and his radical past has been exposed for the nation to see. This also doesn't spell well for Obama. When the attention focused on Van Jones and his past, people started to think about what they were told about Obama's radical associations last year. Whether Jones had stayed on or resigned, he was the poster child for the validation for everything conservatives said repeatedly about the type of people Obama associated with. This is just another black mark on Obama's lack of judgement. He keeps forgetting that this isn't Chicago. Here's the final score.
