Van Jones: Left should re-elect, then push Obama
Politico ^ | 3/30/12 | JOSEPH WILLIAMS

Posted on 03/30/2012 5:23:20 PM PDT by Nachum

Van Jones is back with a message for disappointed progressives, Occupy Wall Street and other “post-‘Hope’” Democrats still looking to President Barack Obama for the change they voted for in 2008: Get over it.

“I think you need two sources of power to make change, and not just one. I think you need a head of state that’s willing to be moved, and a movement to do the moving,” said Jones, the former West Wing insider-turned-disillusioned outsider and a lightning rod for conservative critics.

That’s the gist of Jones’ new book, “Rebuild the Dream,” his blueprint for grassroots action to restore the economy as well as attempt to turn Obama into the kind of president they want. The book is a companion piece to Jones’ activities since leaving the White House — and his new rock-star status within the progressive movement. He’s in town to sell his vision for a new liberal strategy almost as much as the book, which comes to stores Tuesday.

Liberals must work hard to give Obama a second term, then force him to the left, Jones explained.

I believe in the two term system. One in office and one term in JAIL!

“Rebuild the Dream,”

LOL!

Just when the hell was "the dream" built in the first place?

I always though a "dream" was an illusion brought on by slumber.

I had a movement this morning that kind of looked like Van Jones.

What’s worse for the Nation:

A 2nd Obama term or a 1st Mitt term?

Well, I have been told that no matter who it is, "it's our job to hold their feet to the fire" and MAKE them do what is right!

I'm sure then all will be as right as rain.../MS

Maybe true 25 years ago, but in case you did not get the memo, Russia and central Europe are no longer Communist.

I wish that were true, but it isn’t.
American society and culture is moving to the left at breakneck speed.
The two most influential elements of American society, media and education, are under almost total control by the Communist.

The election of the Marxist messiah is quite telling.
If the trend is not stopped soon, it will be all over for the America that I grew up in.

The communist is already:
* Gutting US defenses
* Unilaterally giving up our nukes and space capabilities
* Destroying the US dollar
* Making energy completely unaffordable
* Trying to control our bodies and lives via unconstitutional laws
* Crushing the nation with endless debt that will lead to financial collapse
* Ruining the military via repeal of DADT
* Preventing the DOJ from dealing with ANY black crime
* Handing out big bucks to his crony capitalist pals who then recycle the money back to him in campaign “contributions”
* Inciting race and gender wars

And this Jones wants to push the pedal even harder? God help us.

Yes, Jones is a Communist, as pure as they come.
I was really disgusted when I saw a video clip of Meg Whitman
talking about Jones.
She was on an Alaska cruise and Jones was on the same cruise.
Her observation of him....”He is such a wonderful man”.
Made me want to puke.

off a cliff.

The numbers of the Racist in Chief seem to indicate that the rank-and-file are none to happy with Dear Leader.

Yesterday, Sharpton was being denounced by the current head of whatever major racist organization he used to belong to.

I have a feeling Van Jones is next on the menu.

[It's SO amusing when they eat their own. LOL!]

A major part of the dream would be a liberal leaning SCOTUS. With that accomplished the right will need to work 3 or 4 times as hard to recapture the country. This is the real dream the left wants and what they are paying for with Obama.

Think about it. If they have SCOTUS they know we are done and our hopes of retaining the republic the founders entrusted to us. If they have SCOTUS they know very well the US as we know it is done and their dreams of it are just starting.

The next president will get to appoint 2 to 3 justices and they know it. Does everyone on the right know that?

At election time ONLY vote SCOTUS and friends that is NOT obama. Not going to the polls IS a vote for obama! No matter what your reason abstaining from voting IS a vote for obama and NOT a vote for our country.

Consider that carefully over the next few months. The left hopes you won't.

With the crap going on in this Country right now, I can't believe I have to ask the question.
