Van Jones Resigns… Almost..

M2 – from our mothership blog,

Good news, fellow patriots. Shining the light of truth and public scritiny has caused President Obama’s Communism Czar Green Jobs Czar to hide back under the rock from under which he came. It’s being reported as a resignation. But read carefully, Obama still has a place for this guy in his administration; we’re still paying his salary with our tax dollars.

The resignation comes as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.

Jones issued an apology on Thursday for his past statements. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones “continues to work in the administration.”  – from the Associated Press

Jones had a broad vision for the economy, to be certain. But it wasn’t green, it was most definitely red.

It strains credulity for Jones to distance himself from the 9/11 petition he previously endorsed now that he’s getting heat for it. But notice Jones hasn’t renounced being a communist (and to those of you who are leveling accusations of McCarthyism, please note that Jones identified himself a communist). He hasn’t renounced his statements linking himself to the “global gtruggle” against the U.S. Nor does has Jones renounced being a black nationalist like Obama’s 20-year pastor, Jeremiah Wright.

Also, it’s worth noting that President Obama hasn’t come out and distanced himself from Jones (not that it would matter anyway, but geez, at least try to look to avoid being connected with radical leftists). So they’re just changing which office Jones occupies within Obama’s administration.

Because Jones and President Obama clearly share the same principles and agenda
