Thoughts From Around the Blogosphere: Reaction to Van Jones’s Resignation and Controversy

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but there so much fun so I’m about to start again.  For those that don’t know how this works, I google blogsearch “Van Jones” and take a random sampling of the results and clip out important bits, as well as throw in some of my favorite bloggers’ thoughts.  Here’s the blogosphere’s reaction to the resignation of former green jobs advisor, Van Jones:

DPGI- the aftermath

Just put Bush’s name in any of these stories – war, spending, personal associations, agenda, czars, “dictatorship” – and then, recall the panty-twisting furor of the Left from the past eight years. Kind of telling to see the sand in their crotch was Bush, not what Bush did because Obama is following Bush’s path in many ways.

Quipster

The special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality apparently believes that his past actions are being used as “lies and distortions,” and are not worthy of scrutiny for the special government position he enjoyed.

Citizens Against Pro-Obama Media Bias

They ranted on and on about the “birthers” and compared them to the “truthers” and lo and behold one of barry’s special advisors is a truther…to begin with.

The Transporter

Van Jones resigns as President Obamas green jobs czar. All I can think of to say is not soon enough, not soon enough. The president should check into the backgrounds of some people before he hires them to save the embarrassment.

Newsreal (I strongly recommend reading this article, it’s one of my favorites regarding Jones)

The point is not that President Obama will not tolerate people with Van Jones’ views to serve in his administration: he obviously will, because he did and he defended Jones to the bitter end. The point is Jones is becoming part of Obama’s increasingly familiar pattern: associate with radical leftists, give them as much power and prominence as possible in their own right, and disavow them only if they begin to hurt your ability to radicalize the system from within.

The Political Inquirer

One down a whole administration yet to go.

Citizen Obie

Van Jones made a mistake. Van Jones did and said some things I think he probably regrets. In fact, I know he does, because he said so. But where I see a mistake, Glenn Beck and the rightist bloggers who carried out this campaign saw an opportunity to tar and feather (and yes, that image is deliberate) the very symbol of the green jobs movement, and to characterize that movement, and by extension the presidency, as a communist cabal intent on imposing a reverse-racist tyranny on good Christian straight White Americans.

Betsy’s Page

How viciously sneaky of the right wing. They dared to use the man’s own words against him.

All American Blogger

I’m not saying I had anything to do with this, but I did write one heck of a blogosphere roundup on the matter.

California Conservative

Conservatives often joke that the Left’s definition of a dirty campaign is using their words against them. That seems to fit with Van Jones’ resignation letter.

The Lonely Conservative

Despite the fact that the MSM completely ignored the news of Van Jones’s past, the radical commie Green Jobs Czar has quit. And of course he’s blaming it on the folks who had the nerve to dig up his past. Not that it was hard.

Glenn Beck

The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.

Van Jones Resigns: A Display of the Power of Fox News

Wow, I think I truly am shocked about this.

I haven’t been following the Van Jones saga much lately because I’d seen what I needed to see:  the guy is crazy and he is (was) an advisor to the president.  If I’m being perfectly honest, I assumed that he was here to stay so I just tried to block out all of the controversies surrounding him during my daily dose of Glenn Beck so I wasn’t freaked out even further.

So when I got home from church today, I was surprised to find on the AOL home page that Van Jones had resigned as green jobs advisor amid all the controversy.  But again, rather than owning up to his past statements and claims, Jones simply said he needed to leave due to the “vicious smear campaign” against him.  Van.. Buddy.. It’s not a smear campaign when it’s true.  Admit responsibility for your actions and leave with a little bit of dignity.  Without a doubt Jones knew that he was fast becoming baggage for the administration and that he probably wouldn’t be able to make many green jobs when the vast majority of America is against him.  In fact, AOL’s poll (I know it’s not scientific, but they’re usually pretty close) has 91%  giving Jones resignation a “Thumbs Up” and only 9% a “Thumbs Down”.

Glenn Beck, pat yourself on the back for this one

The whole debacle would have never gotten anywhere without all the coverage Glenn Beck has devoted to Van Jones over the past few days.  He’s constantly been pounding viewers with video clips and quotes from Van Jones that serve as an illustration of his lunacity.  The message obviously resonated with viewers; “Van Jones” was a trending topic on Twitter at the start of the weekend and the blogosphere has been ripe with “Get Rid of Jones!” posts.  Once the rest of the right-media (Basically Fox News) caught on to the situation, Sean Hannity picked it up and then it was all over.  When you’ve got the second biggest radio personality and quite possibly the most controversial cable news host broadcasting concrete evidence of insanity, somethings got to change.  And that my friends, is change we can believe in.

Come On, Barack! Well, at Least He’s a Liberal.

I suck like the Special Olympics, says Obama.

"I suck like the Special Olympics", says Obama.

Barack, Barack, Barack. What were you thinking? You can’t talk about how bad you were bowling and compare it to the Special Olympics; especially when you’re the president! I mean, I’m sure I’ve said worse, but you are the PRESIDENT. Geez. For those that missed this little debacle, while Barack was being a cool cat on Jay Leno (DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO GO ON A LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW???), Jay brought up his lack of bowling skill. Barack said it was getting a little better but still sucked, and then compared his horribleness to the Special Olympics. I’m sure there were many expletives swirling about in his brain after that little slip, but he should rest easy because he’ll be fine. Why, you ask? Because he’s a liberal, of course! The only people that are going to ever know about this are the viewers of FOX News, listeners of talk radio, the people watching Leno, and people that read conservative blogs online. That’s probably, at the most, 15 million people that will have any idea he said that. Being a liberal nearly makes you impervious to media scrutiny, so he’s got no need to worry.  Oh and don’t forget the White House released that memo that said he didn’t mean to degrade the Special Olympics.  Oh ok, no problem then!  Come on, that’s like calling your mom a stupid fat cow, but then saying you didn’t mean it in a mean way.  How dumb does the White House think we are?  (Oh wait, we did elect the guy. :)).  So rather than hiding behind a White House Press Release, I demand that you, Barack Obama, apologize to America for belittling the Special Olympics.  We’re waiting.

*Disclaimer*

Now I know that on numerous I’ve said America needs to toughen up and not get so offended about stuff, but I think this was over the line.  Making rude comments about physical disabilities is not in the realm of okayness.  And for those that like to e-mail me and say I’m just biased, I spoke out against Laura Ingraham’s comments on Meghan McCain’s weight earier this week.  No, I didn’t say as much about them, but those comments were not anywhere near as offensive.

Just imagine the outrage if Rush or Hannity or Coulter had said that! We’d never hear the end of it.  What do you think of Obama’s comments?  Were they completely ridiculous or do you think it was all in good humor?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

SHOCKER: Obama Doesn’t Like Rush Limbaugh

Wow, apparently Obama is not a fan?

Wow, apparently Obama is not a fan?

In a conference today at the White House, Obama warned Republicans not to listen to Rush Limbaugh if they want to get anything done.  The exact quote was, “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done”.  According to a White House official the quote was an attempt to bring up a greater point about “unifying Republicans and Democrats”.  I, however, have this sneaking suspicion that the real reason he said that was because Rush royally dissed him during his Hannity interview a few nights ago.  (In case you missed it, Rush just said he hopes Obama is a failure.  I have a feeling Barack didn’t take that too well.)  What’s funny to me about this, is that Rush Limbaugh’s opinion doesn’t affect too many people.  At all.  I mean seriously, even I think the guys nuts.  The only people that listen to him for the “insight” are people that wanted Obama to fail well before Rush Limbaugh ever opened his mouth.  But what really bothers me is that if this is an issue of partisanism (Is that a word?) he needs to address both sides.  He needs to warn the liberals not listen to Keith Olbermann, because in my opinion he is just as bad, if not worse, than Rush Limbaugh.  But we know he will never do that, because Olbermann is on his side.  So really all that saying that did, if anything, was make the partisan divide that much larger.

What’s your opinion on this?  Do you think Obama should call an emergency press conference to warn the public to beware of Olbermann?  Send us your opinion this and it may be featured on the site!

FOX News New Line-up

Glenn Becks incredible new show.

Glenn Beck's incredible new show.

For the start of the new year, FOX News Channel introduced some changes that have shifted the dynamic of the show.  Most notibly was the departure of Colmes (a welcome one for me), but also the introduction of a new commentator, Glenn Beck.  First off, let’s discuss the Colmes departure.  In all honesty, I did not like Colmes at all on the show.  I think it might have been that Hannity is so conservative that it made Colmes appear as if he was the ultimate embodiement of a liberal.  Quite frankly, he came across as a loon.  However, off the show, he seemed like a nice guy.  So as far as ‘Hannity and Colmes’ goes, I’m glad he’s gone.  But I hope he gets a show somewhere, just because I don’t think he’s all bad.  He would be a WELCOME replacement for Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, but that’s another story for another day.  The second major change would be the addition of The Glenn Beck Program at 5 PM (Eastern).  Before this show I’d never listened to Beck much, but after the first two shows I’m hooked.  He is a really funny guy, and he’s a lot more fair than Hannity, in that he doesn’t automatically associated liberals with the devil.  The first episode of the show was great.  He had a heartfelt moment talking about his child with a disability, interviewed Sarah Palin, and was the first to talk with the wives of commuted border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jorge Compean.  I’d say it was a pretty action packed first episode.  I encourage everyone to watch The Glenn Beck Prorgram, I have a feeling it’s going to my favorite show of it’s kind on any network.

Thanks for reading and hope you check back in often!

Almost Confirmed: Newt Gingrich for President 2012

Newt Gingrich, will we see him in 2012?

Newt Gingrich, will we see him in 2012?

That’s right.  Earlier today Newt Gingrich was being interviewed by Sean Hannity and he asked him if he would interested in running for the nomination in 2012.  Newt immediately responded with a “Yes”, which left Sean Hannity speechless for the first time in the history of the world.  He then said to ask again in 3 years and he’d give a definite answer.  I think this is huge because usually a candidate won’t even give an idea if they are running unless they are pretty sure of it.  If Newt Gingrich did get the nomination, I would be behind him 100%, but in the primaries probably not so much.  He is a brilliant guy, and I like his conservatives values, but he brings a lot of undesirable baggage with him.  We’ll have to see where this goes from here, I’m sure it will be convered some more by the media.

So in order to see where all of you readers stand, vote in the poll below:

Thanks for voting!  Please leave a comment about what you think of a potential Newt Gingrich White House run.
