Skip to comments.Obama Advisor John Podesta Rips Glenn Beck as "Van's chief tormentor'
Posted on 09/06/2009 5:56:27 PM PDT by kristinn
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.
Podesta and his comrades seem to be taking this pretty hard. LOL! Just think! Jonesy can now go home and enjoy the pleasures of being unemployed. (Until he’s hired by PMSNBC, NBC or abc.)
Hey Podesta, we love turning on the light and watching you roaches scatter back into your dark, dank holes. Get used to it cause we’re not going away and plan to shed more light on you vermin.
Hey Mr Podesta, what part of the truth cant you libs stand? I realize the truth is your worst enemy. But do you really want communists in our White house???
‘Truth’ and ‘Light’ are Kryptonite to libs. Much like exposing a crucifix to a vampire.
You have done great work on this collective effort too, kristinn.
Mike Pence said the other day that when he started seeing Americans showing up at tea parties and townhalls, he felt like he was watching the cavalry riding over the hill.
A nice image. You have been leading that cavalry charge for some time.
Podesta: "Van was working to build a common ground agenda for all Americans"
There is no "common ground" with communist wealth-distributors. They will confiscate as much wealth from the producers as possible.
Podesta: "I look forward to working with Van to move our country towards a clean energy economy that empowers and lifts up all Americans.
Please explain, once and for all, how very expensive, unreliable, and intermittent sources of energy are going to do that. It defies all engineering, economic and common sense. This is the new pixie dust of the left that is going to usher in a new Utopia for all of us.
Podesta is either soft on Commies, deaf, or stupid, or, possibly ALL THREE.
He didn't like Sarah Palin's baby either ~ Podesta hates babies, kicks dogs, and steals change from little kids at bus stops (no doubt).
Can we just forget about Podesta ~ he has nothing to add to the national dialogue worth hearing.
Sunlight is a powerful disinfectant, Podesta and his cronies avoid it like the plague.
Kudos to Glenn Beck.
Van Jones wanted to turn prison inmates loose and (put them to work) in green jobs. I suspect he meant as enforcers like the Fedayeen.
“At least Soros has to pay him now and we dont.”
Guess you haven’t heard that BO gave Soros’s Brazilian oil company $2 Billion of our tax dollars to drill off the coast of Brazil. BO will find a way to pay all his Leftist cronies with our money. That’s what he really meant when he told Joe the Plumber that he would “spread the wealth.” The stupid welfare class thought they were going to get it...the chumps.
Yeah ole NBC news tonight interviewing that idiot that called Americans idiots for protesting Obama’s policies. Said the “vrwc” has two “scalps” on our belts.
EXCUSE ME ISN’T THAT A RACIST COMMENT AGAINST THE NATIVE AMERICAN COMMUNITY.
Shine a light on a ‘rat cockroach and get the PETA folks on ya 24/7.
I must conclude that Mr. Podesta approves Van’s message.
Yeah?.. Czar Van Jones and his cadre of warders to keep the gates closed to any but "green" jobs are guilty of warder torture.
Thanks for posting, kristinn. John POS Podesta BUMP!
Whatever the hell that is, I ain't buying.
0nly 28 more years to go.
Podestas espionage is epic..
You blame Bush for going in and stopping all the horrible things Saddam and his boys were creating.
You blame Beck for shining a light on all the horrible things Jones said and did.
If Saddam and Jones hadn't done and said those things, there'd be nothing to talk about.
Libs need to take a look in the mirror!
Podesta is soft on Communists and clearly agrees with them on many things. I believe the Center for American Progress is one of the most significant, if not most significant influencer of progressive policies in this administration. They’re funded by Soros ANC are way out if the American mainstream.
“Van was working to build a common ground agenda for all Americans,”
FUNNY, Fox has a goldmine!
And proud of it.
We’re proud of you Glenn.
This should help raise Glens ratings even further. They spelled his name right.BEST line of the night; LOL!
Note to Podesta: You, sir, are as blind, arrogant, and foolish as Van Jones himself. You should resign from all future statements and public appearances so you do not continue to show how foolish you really are. We will take this country back from liberals like you, by the way.
