Van Jones, president of the progressive organization Rebuild the Dream, joins The Last Word to discuss what Washington should be doing about jobs. Jones calls the US' deficit problem "phony" and made up. "Hold on to your hats, we're going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America's middle class," Jones told MSNBC's "The Last Word." Jones warns of an "American Fall" like there was an Arab Spring. Jones was President Obama's "green jobs czar" until he resigned in fall of 2009. Transcript below: Van Jones: "We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

Although Jones is by no means any kind of unique example, it just boggles my mind that complete moonbat nutjobs have gainful employment and earn respect in an economy that is flat on its ass. That we pay good money to people who want nothing more than to tear down the system that pays them, that exalts them as intellectual elites. Guys like this are just completely useless. Indeed, many of them are worse than useless. “Useless” would be a step up for many of them.
Hey Van, the Tea Party gatherings are peaceful and patriotic.
If you came face to face with one of these groups, you’d probably gibber, blubber and wet yourself. Akin to the reaction a vampire would have to Holy water.
They’re more like the new Pot Party.
Van, if you're going to shuck & jive, why not pick an even bigger number out of thin air? Say that 180 percent of Americans in all 57 states agree, and the eleventy billion people in the world do too!
agree- and i asked them to do just that...
be harsh but respectful and not over the line...
I dunno, I have always found them offensive . . . why should it be any different in October?
“Attackwatch still up”
Yup, I reported Joe “biteme” Biden for dissing obozo, yesterday.
Attackwatch twitter still feeling the love from tea partiers, freepers and other rightwing types:
Here come da communists! Here come da communists! And they are islam communists.
Are you American black folks feeling stupid yet?
Perfect month, October. It's the start of hunting season in most places. Rifles will be sighted-in, ammo will be at hand, and progressive vermin will be good target practice before opening day.
Bring it on.
I remember the last time they tried that, got a little media coverage promoting their “coffee talks” but nobody bothered to show up. Kind of like their talk radio efforts, Air American anyone?
Just as long as they stay off my property or I’ll educate them on the 2nd Amendment.
Bump. Chump don’t want da help, chump don’t get da help.
Hey Van! You mad bro?
