I don’t quite like him, but it looks like Glenn Beck got the last laugh.

Van Jones, President Barack Obama’s adviser on “green jobs,” resigned his post overnight, after a series of controversial comments came to light triggering withering attacks from conservatives.

    #40 Toxic Asshead said “What if Byrd (rightly) sees that Obama’s lunacy threatens to take down the entire Democrat party?”

    When Slick Willy got himself caught in a wringer I sort of expected some (not all) Democrats (including Byrd) to step up to the plate (not that I wanted President Algore). But, they closed ranks and now he is a hero – a rich one, at that. So, do I expect that Byrd might do the right thing? Not really. He is a party man, pure and simple.

    But, false hope is better than no hope at all.

    term limits – term limits – term limits

    Slightly OT but how can any rational human being listen to Glenn Beck. He’s the phoney’s phoney. I will say this, he can make himself cry on cue (or is it some kind of tech trick, I don’t know)

    Van Jones? Who cares, he’s gone.

    The thing that took Jones out is freedom of speech. Jones used his freedom of speech to say what he said and he did what he did and when somebody (Beck) used their freedom of speech to and went to the trouble of making people aware of what Jones had said and done was Jones was out leaving the question of why he’d ever been in unanswered.

    The problem isn’t with Beck. He did his job even if he is a nut case. The question is as others noted what happened to the rest of people that claim to be reporters and in fact act like an arm of the Radical side of the Democrat party.

    If you want to know what’s going on you have to watch Beck and Fox even if you don’t agree with them because the rest of these people won’t report the news. They filter the news and give you their edited version of it.

    To few people own to many media outlets.

    deowll, I truly feel sorry for you. While I agree with you that the cable “news” outlets are biased to one view point or another, it’s absolutely ludicrous to exempt Fox (the worst offender) from that category.

    What ever happened to independant thought?

  6. Toxic Asshead says:

    #44 – Exactly. Beck and Hannity and others are over the top at times and difficult to sit through. I don;t agree with all their views and I doubt there are that many in 100% agreement.

    The point though, is these people have research staffs that dig into this stuff and find facts. You can discount their viewpoint and simply listen to the facts and decide for yourself what they mean.

    If you only deal with the MSM, you would believe there are no controversies at all. How many people on this blog even just said they never heard of Van Jones? How many had never heard of Jerehmia Wright? Integrity no longer has a place in the MSM.

    #44 Well, I can give you names of the radical arm of the Dem party:

    Oliver Stone: Serving as PR extraordinaire for third world country’s dictators, putting down the US in the process.

    Danny Glover, Sean Penn & the likes: Doing the same thing as Stone, only a little less tracktion.

    Those are just the loudests
