Looks like ABC News has also picked up on the Van Jones story...

White House Declines to Say Van Jones Enjoys "the Confidence of the President"

Asked if controversial White House official Van Jones continues to enjoy the confidence of President Obama given recent revelations about his involvement with those who suggest the Bush administration knew about the 9/11 attacks and allowed them to happen in order to justify a war for oil, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs Friday morning would only say "he continues to work in this administration."

Jones, the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, last night issued a statement apologizing for past controversial remarks and said a petition which he signed suggesting that President Bush "may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen" perhaps to justify war in Afghanistan or Iraq, "does not reflect my views now or ever."

An administration source said Jones says he did not carefully review the language in the petition before agreeing to add his name. But this morning it became known that Jones was on the organizing committee of a 2002 march making similar insinuations and allegations.

How long before Van Jones is throw under the bus ala Rev. Wright?

Hey Shady looks like the leftest news got the news first again. You might enjoy it.

Unfortunately for Obama, Van Jones is a radical that the American people just can't accept as a Czar in the White House. I'm glad he's gone. But he never should have been appointed to that position in the first place. Good riddance Van! Feel free to leave America as well, since you seem to hate it so much. A-hole.

Oh, and it looks like Glen Beck is vindicated once again! :lol:

I liked Van Jones he should have ridden it out. I mean Cheney can tell people to "go fuck themselves" but this guy can't say bad things about Republicans. Obama better watch out because this keeps up he will lose the progressive vote. Democrats are not above eating their own.

It wasn't the "saying bad things" about Republicans. It was saying things like...

"We've never seen a Columbine done by a black child'... Only 'Suburban White Kids' Shoot Up Schools..."

Breitbart

And...

"George Bush is like a crackhead tyring to lick a crackpipe for a fix."

And...

Organized protests in support of cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal

SF

And...Then there's the whole truther situation...

Controversial Obama Administration Official Denies Being Part of 9/11 "Truther" Movement, Apologizes for Past Comments

A top environmental official of the Obama administration issued a statement Thursday apologizing for past incendiary statement and denying that he ever agreed with a 2004 petition on which his name appears, a petition calling for congressional hearings and an investigation by the New York Attorney General into "evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."

Van Jones, the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, is Number 46 of the petitioners from the so-called "Truther" movement which suggests that people in the administration of President George W. Bush "may indeed have indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

ABC News

So seriously? How is a guy like this qualified for a position related to energy and jobs? It's only the far-left position that he resigned because he said bad things about Republicans.

QUOTE American Woman: Sort of like when radio stations refused to play the Dixie Chicks' music, eh? Those damn Left intolerant socialist Bush supporters! :lol:

Or when Republicans didn't want Obama to speak to school children because he was going to try to brainwash them with socialism. :lol:

Yes indeed. Another fine example of "Typical... intolerant socialists, [who] do not like what someone has to say [so] they try and silence them. I may not agree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it, the lost mantra of the left buried with their moral compass." In fact, I think this is one of the best examples to date. :P

I'm just watching Glenn Beck here,it's Saturday night,9pm.He shows a clip from MSNBC.The clip shows some guy from the back and it shows on his waist some guns that he's wearing to some rally,perhaps concerning the health care debate,I didn't catch all of it.Then they go back to the studio and the MSNBC talking heads are implying how racist it is for anyone to show up to these events carrying guns.Then Beck shows some footage from a FOX cameraman of the same guy,but this time from the waist up.Sure enough he's carrying a gun.....but.....it's a black guy! :lol: Wow!They flat out lied and selectively edited this footage to fool their viewers.Just like the New York Times killing the ACORN story all over again.They are not satisfied to report the news as it actually happens,but they are willing to lie and fabricate in order to push the leftist agenda.Scary stuff.

I humbly admit that since where I live I do not have access to high speed internet and therefore youtube videos are too time consuming for me to bother watching.So what exactly is on this video?

Even if I could see youtube,I'll still stick with FOX and see fair and balanced news coverage.Is youtube a source for you? :lol:

It is a video from Cnn showing fox accusing them of not covering the tea parties while at the same time using CNN's own footage of the Tea parties to show how big of news story it was. Fox news Distorting Not Reporting.

Ohhh may I add Media Matters has footage of Fox news at those tea Parties feeding people what to say on camera as well. I will stick with all the media is bias Fox is one of the worse.

One has to wonder where the radical lefties that seem to be surrounding Team Obama want to progress to.Van Jones,Valerie Bartlett,William Ayers etc.I doubt Van Jones resigned because of his comments concerning Republicans,I think Obama's people just wanted him off the public stage for the time being.The more his past came out,the more difficult it was to try and explain to the American public why they had a Communist in such an important position.Not to mention his other radical affiliations,(Truthers for one).Americans deserve better.

You do know several people that were close to Bush are Truthers right? OR this one of those yah so what our guy did it, your guy is worse for doing it things. I mean honestly I don't wonder why Obama has people from the left on his team I wonder why there isn't more of them.
