    Wow this guy is a bigger tool then I imaged, from the article.

    "On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in his resignation statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

    and then their is this one from the article nice backstepping never mind the stuff on Youtube

    Jones flatly said in an earlier statement that he did not agree with the petition's stand on the 9/11 attacks and that "it certainly does not reflect my views, now or ever."

    I think every one of Mr. Obama's Czars need to be sent before Congress and be question just like they do with Cabinet Positions.
    So you are with Michell Bachman as far as wanting Congress to investigate all of the Dems to see if the are Anti-american or not?

    The "white polluter" didn't really bug me much...stupid, but not exceptionally so. The asshole thing bothered me not at all. The 9/11 truther thing would only bother me if he was trying to do something about it currently.

    This is a far larger problem then this moron the President has taken the Check and Balance part of the US Const. out of the hands of Congress.
    Congress has no say in these appointment and I find that very wrong.
    He had no real power. He was a minor functionary.

    Way to not read my first post GD if you had then you would have noted that I think all of the Czars that any President don't care who it is should have to be brought in front Congress and question before they can be given the job.

    We have a check and balance in place that are Founding Father put in so one Branch would make sure the other Branch didn't get to powerful.

    Doesn't matter he still should have had to sit in front of Congress and I would say he had allot more power as do the rest of the So-Called Czars.

    Check and Balance Folks that is what we are talking about Check and Balances

    And who would set the criteria and standards for what is considered to be American or Anti-American?

    Yes I watched that system of Checks and Balances that were set forth by the Founding Fathers be tossed out the window for 6 long years during the last administration...
    Why the urgent need now?

    So what power did he have that you opposed to specifically? And how did his beliefs make him unable to properly use that power? Let's move beyond vague accusations and into specifics.

    with all due respect, very few people really care what does or doesn't bug you

    jones bugged millions of your neighbors, transparently, your equals

    enough so that he had to be OFFED within days

    as to which of his beliefs disqualified mr czar from the execution of his powers as minor functionary (LOL!), perhaps you could ask the president as he's the person who fired van jones

    Re: Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy

    I particularly like this quote from Obama's ex-communist adviser:

    "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."
    Let me rephrase that. I particularly like what this quote lacks, and in fact what his entire statement lacks. Detail... Examples... Proof... Corroboration.

    He makes a blanket accusation that his opponents are "using lies and distortions" against him, yet neither he, nor anyone from the administration has ever presented even one example of this. In fact, during the last week and a half the White House was fully aware that Glenn Beck had been exposing more and more facts about this man, and neither they, nor Van Jones himself, ever disputed the information Beck presented or claimed any of it had been distorted.

    What does this tell you?

    It tells you that the only one who's lying and distorting, is Van Jones himself.

    One down, dozens to go.

    Millions? You have some proof that that many people cared, because I see no evidence of it. Mostly, I just see the same loud people who complain about every single thing Obama does who are "bugged".
