Posted on 09/08/2009 12:14:43 PM PDT by eeevil conservative
If I recall correctly, Major Garrett was discussing the Van Jones story and said something I found amazing. I thought he reported that the White House said that they knew about Jones' past and statements. The White House (or the President) claims that Van Jones was up front with them about these things, but they thought it would not be an issue.
Does anyone else recall this?
I don’t recall this, however, anyone with five seconds to do a Google search could have found them.
if I remember this correctly- that would be some big news!
SO they DID know. But now that WE know it is a problem?
If they knew about it and didn’t have a problem with it, then why not come out and say- “Yes, we knew all this and we STILL wanted him on our team.”
At the very least it would be an answer to one of Glenn Beck’s questions he(and we) has been begging to get answers for
According to an article in the American Spectator, Jones was less than honest in his security application:
I looked— didn’t find anything...but I swear I heard it....
Did it ever occur to anyone that Van Jones’s controversial statements HELPED get him notice to begin with and caught BHO’s eye? Jones is, after all, cut from the same ideological cloth as BHO, Rev. Wright, Ayers, Dohrn, Alinsky, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Frank Marshall Davis, Hugo Chavez, Oliver Stone, Ed Asner, Sean Penn, etc.
I meant you could have found Jones’ past controversial statements, not what Garrett said.. ie, even a nitwit with half a brain who was willing to look would have known that Jones was a liability. Either the administration didn’t want to know or they turned a blind eye to it.
To O’s team I’m sure Jones is a moderate compared to the rest of them.
It was a Valerie Jarett quote to media that they had been watching Jones ever since he started his organizing in Oakland. They were stoked they could get him. My words but basically they knew exactly what he was and who he was. He is one of the triplets, Obama and Rev Wright being the other two.
This might be what you are looking for
BO and his “bitter half” are on the same page as Jones. God knows how many others have been brought into our government by this scummy administration.
Take a look at Revrum Wrong way Wright’s video clips—was his verbal sewage met with silence or boos? Hell no-all the fatass imbeciles were falling out—cheering and chortling like there was no tomorrow.
Calypso Louie has routinely sold out public venues like the LA forum, the DC Convention Center, Cobo Hall in Detroit, etc—THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of brain-dead, hate-filled morons cheering him on.
Oh, they knew fully. Their belief was that no one would take notice or care as the MSM didn’t say a word about this guy until he was forced to resign.
You heard right, and as Hannity just said (paraphrased), “The White House knew, and Jones was exactly the person they wanted. They and progressive lib leaders are still praising Jones.” Moreover, they either don’t know or don’t care that they are a dwindling minority of America.
What the Van Jones affair tells us about Obama.Jones isn’t someone who slipped thru the cracks of the vetting process. http://tw0.us/1DR
Scott pointed out earlier today, top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett has said, “So, Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House; we were watching him. . .for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland.”
..or, through their own perspective, they saw nothing wrong with the statements until they became a liability.
Major Garrett said just that during his interview with Laura Ingram this morning...
YES!!! That video does not show the report that I am speaking of— but the blogger states the same thing I heard!!
WHEW— I am NOT insane!
now— how do I get a hold of FOX to beg them to make the video available on their site— or at least get that footage to Glenn’s producers?
Does it matter anymore?
