Skip to comments.Obama Advisor John Podesta Rips Glenn Beck as "Van's chief tormentor'

Obama transition chief and head of the leftist Center for American Progress, John Podesta, laid in to Glenn Beck tonight with a spirited but after the fact defense of former Obama administration official Van Jones that was posted tonight at Think Progress:
Van Jones is an exceptional and inspired leader who has fought to bring economic and environmental justice to communities across our country.
He has chosen to resign because he believed he was serving as a distraction to the presidents agenda. I respect that decision.
Van was working to build a common ground agenda for all Americans, and I am confident he will continue that work. Unfortunately, his critics on the right could find no common ground with him.
Clearly, Van was the subject of a right-wing smear campaign shrouded in hypocrisy. Vans chief tormentor Glenn Beck, who spent weeks engaged in vicious name-calling, retains his perch at Fox News after calling the president a racist who has a deep-seated hatred for white people. Van has set a standard that Beck would never impose upon himself.
I look forward to working with Van to move our country towards a clean energy economy that empowers and lifts up all Americans.
Van Jones is a race-baiting, America-hating, cop-hating, terrorist-sympathizing, expert at living off the public teat. In other words he's a perfect Democrat. No wonder Podesta loves this guy and looks forward to working with him (again).
SUCKS to be a COMMIE, doesn't it Podesta....one of your own falls....let there be MANY MORE! We AMERICAN'S DON'T TAKE LIGHTLY to this OVERTHROW!
Coming from a Pinko Whack Job like that I would consider it a badge of Honor and a Job well done.
The left is in meltdown mode.
Hey Mr Podesta, what part of the truth can’t you libs stand? I realize the truth is your worst enemy. But do you really want communists in our White house???
LOL. So is he surfacing at CAP?
My assessment on Friday was that they were working very hard to decide where he should land. At least Soros has to pay him now and we don’t.
Wonder how he could be serving as a distraction to the President when nobody in the Meat-Head-Media was reporting it .....?
This should help raise Glen’s ratings even further. They spelled his name right.
Save it Podesta, you’re commies are being exposed and America knows now. This is just the beginning.
Pray for America
Podesta defends fellow Communist thug. Nice.
Heh...if they keep this up, more of the screwy leftists in the White House will go down with him... Keep it up you screwballs...
Podesta’s entire Center for American Progress is full of wannabe Communists. Mark Lloyd used to work there.
If your boy's can't handle the criticism let 'em bail....
GWB put up with a heck of alot more....
EPIC Beck WIN!
Glenn Beck kicked your ass.
“Tormenter” = Marxist tool propaganda rhetoric for someone who simply replays videos of a loud mouth classic commie’s endless hate speech.
Happily, the typical narcissistic Leftist loves to spew their bilge to audiences of like mind, and that usually winds up on a video tape.
I’m waiting for the happy day when a former student sells his/her video tape of BO lecturing on his critique of the U.S. Constitution. You know it’s out there, and it could wipe him out. We just have to find it....
“”Clearly, Van was the subject of a right-wing smear campaign shrouded in hypocrisy...”
OK, let’s get this straight...you can only “smear” a person with FALSE accusations. Van Jones was skewered on his own words, for all the world to hear! The truth can never smear anyone.
