Valerie Jarrett: Obama to Change Washington by Spending More Time Away (Oh Goody!!!)

Jarrett: Obama to Change Washington by Spending More Time Away

Bridget Johnson

Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said that in a second term, President Obama would change Washington by spending even more time away from D.C.

“I think everybody grows. Everybody matures. Everybody develops their, you know, their confidence,” Jarrett said of the first term in an interview airing this morning on MSNBC.

“As I think one of the things that he has said upon reflection is that he’s going to spend a lot more time traveling around the country,” she said after a New Hampshire rally. “A day like today is energizing, and the American people are hungry to be engaged and he wants to be able to spend more time doing it. And that will hold Congress accountable.”

“As you know, what we said in the last campaign was ‘yes, we can,’ not ‘yes, I can,’ for the president. He cannot take on these challenges alone. We need to keep the kind of crowd we had in New Hampshire, what we’ve seen all over the country. Going past the election, we need to win the election and then we need to move into a second term. And we need to bring our country forward together,” Jarrett added.

Last month, Obama said the most important lesson learned in his first term is that “you can’t change Washington from the inside,” prompting criticism from the Romney camp.

Jarrett reflected on going through this last campaign with her longtime friend Obama.

“It is a little bit like I can’t believe that this is the last time he’ll ever run for office again,” she said. “But then I know that we have four more years and a lot of hard work left to do. Right?”

Spoken like a dummy. You know. No I don’t know. Apparently, neither does she.

Here all the time I thought he was voting “absent”, rather than “present”.

I never would have suspected he actually needed more time away; he has been away and out the loop more than any chief executive I recall.

He surfaces frequently to run his head ad nauseum, but seldom in an actual presidential setting.

Truth be known, she is running the country anyway. She’s probably the one who gave the “stand down” orders.

Wonder how many decisions Obama has really made for the U.S. or has he just been a puppet for his administration staff doing what they decided. Probably has no idea about any bills that he signed or directions given because he never had to think about them just following orders.

Jarrett seems to meddle in everything, and in foregn affairs counsels weakness. I have to wonder if she is part of the Benghazi mess.

Yeah, that’s the ticket! He can “hook up with OJ Simpson” at every golf course in the world and look for Nicole’s “real” killer! Oh, I forgot, FUBO will have to search on his own, OJ is in the Nevada Penitentiary for the rest of his life! God Bless Nevada for doing what the idiots in SoCal couldn’t.

Once Romney and the new Attorney general REALLY investigate Fast and furious, and the Libyan coverup I bet he will have a hard time getting to see michelle and Valerie except through a pane of plexiglass.

"Voting present" vs "being absent". That is one of those wonderful pairs of special words (pseudopposites) in the English language such as "fat chance" vs "slim chance".

I agree with Valerie Jarrett. Barry makes his concession speech and on the morning of November 7th goes on vacation to Kenya and Indonesia until he returns (or not) for the inauguration of President Romney on January 20, 2013.

If there’s a “red” in the closet, it is Jarrett. Too much of her past involves Communist Party USA members and collaborators.

One day, hopefully soon, she will be gone and the real investigations of her background will proceed unhindered.
