President Obamas top adviser Valerie Jarrett was behind a plan to force a showdown with Republicans over ObamaCare as part of a strategy to regain Democratic control of the House next year, claims author Ed Klein.
Klein who wrote a provocative biography about Obama last year entitled The Amateur said White House insiders refer to Jarrett as The Night Stalker because she is the only presidential aide who frequently spends time in the family quarters and dines with the Obamas.
Klein, who is conducting a research for a new Obama tome scheduled for next spring, called Jarrett the architect of Obamas take-no- prisoners approach when it comes to his signature domestic policy initiative.
It was Jarrett who advised Obama that voters would mostly blame Republicans if the federal government ground to a halt, providing a golden opportunity to swing back control of the House to Democrats in the 2014 mid-term elections, according to Klein.
A Democratic House would give Obama an opportunity to pass immigration and other legislation blocked by the current Republican majority.
It was during one of those nightly sessions that Jarrett devised the no-negotiating strategy that Obama has employed in his fight with the GOP over the government shutdown, Klein said, citing sources within the administration.
Valerie came up with the concept late at night, after the kids and grandma and were gone.
She convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014 .
A genuine commie ho.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
One issue I have with this is does Obama ever negotiate with Republicans? This makes it sound like it is a novel approach for him.
Obama has never negotiated on anything.
The Night Stalker.
The Martin Bormann of the Spite House.
Or, the real-life inspiration of Dennis from “What I Saw At The Coup”...
Darth Vader in a pixie haircut.
Obama has made his play to take over the government and bypass congress and the constitution.
her face does look like she is a burn victim.
We knew it was coming. Did the bony phony succeed?
Thanks for the Levin heads up. Will listen to Rewind.

meanwhile, republicans are in a circular firing squad blazing away at each other for either being not conservative enough or irrational zealots.
meanwhile, the real enemy is laughing their way into the distance with our hijacked healthcare under their arm.
people need to wake the hell up.
I really respect and envy her ability to influence so many things in US policies by proposing strategies based on offense, not defense. Compared that to the Republican’s strategies in general that seem to be based on defense (and surrender).
I missed it and don’t want to wait until midnight. Could you give a recap? Thanks.
I have seen this type behavior and personality traits throughout history, and the results are always the same. It always ends badly.
Is it time for Obama to throw Valerie under the bus?
Valerie Jarrett = Jezebel
