Even a communist still needs to get re-elected Mr Jones.
I’m sure if zero gets a second term his real base will be a whole lot happier since the gloves will be off. Besides, who knows...maybe Jones is just trying to give Obama the illusion of distance to help his candidate get where they both want to go..
Wow...One “little election”, and the wheels ALL seem to be coming off!!
People said that the WI election would have “repercussions” FAR beyond WI—and into the main election in November. I guess they were right—probably more than they could have even IMAGINED!!
It has been a fun week...for conservatives...
Van Jones is willingly playing “bad cop”, like so many Obama
surrogates have done for 3 1/2 years, to Obama’s “good cop”.
It’s all done with a wink and a nod to Obama, and is not meant to be taken seriously by “diehard” Obama supporters. Van Jones is obviously angling for a new position in a 2nd Obama presidential term, since he lost his footing in the first one
by being too loud and creating too much negative feedback for Obama. In a second term, yes, the gloves would be off, and Jones would be rewarded in some way, through an appointment or special connections setting him up in some bogus “organization”.This whole strategy of “distancing” as you call it is utterly transparent, and has also been practiced by would-be Muslim political players, like Imam Rauf, who was the highly visible but now invisible force behind the Ground Zero Mosque enterprise.All three of these guys have played their best hand, went all in too soon, and they will soon be consigned to the sour ash-heap of American History.
