I wonder if the NAACP thinks of Obama since they believe Van Jones is a consensus and not some radical nut job.

Around midnite on the East coast.

They wanted desperately to hang onto him, but figured this holiday weekend was their chance to dump him quietly.

Bye, bye Van.

Mr. Obama needs to resign: Anyone who would appoint communists, criminals, tax cheats, liberal fascists and dyed-in-the-wool socialists to his cabinet and “czar” positions has no judgement or common sense, in my opinion. Oh, and we’d still like to see a real birth certificate, school records, transcripts, voting record, etc...

Van Jones resigns over contraversial remarks made

NOTHING about his history or the fact that he’s a Commie.

Hard to report news without much of a basis of fact for the viewing audience of two...lol.

Of course, pmsnbc is showing LockUp right now.

So the muzzie in chief appoints a SELF ADMITTED COMMUNIST and CNN and the rest of the socialist press refuse to cover it.

Now that he has resigned we shall see the ultimate in propaganda, because I am sure they will continue to fail to mention the fact that he is a communist.

Too bad...I was looking forward to at least another week of this stuff. But there are many other commies in this administration that we can find interesting stuff on.

Now, OBAMA who let this vile P.O. S H I tee should tender his resignation as well. He let this fox into the hen house. It is OBAMAS fault for Van Jones’ failure. His alone.

Time for Americans to rise up and rally against this Stalinist push by the Obama faction. Push back hard.

Time for Obama to resign now. Obama has surrounded himself with the radicals because he’s one of them.

Thank you Glenn Beck for keeping us informed..

Can or will the Sunday shows ignore it?

All stories need a factual basis. I guess "contraversial statements" will have to suffice.
