So now what?

Dick Morris, speaking on FOX's "On the Record" on Sept. 3, said that Van Jones, President Barack Obama's "green jobs" adviser, must resign after he reportedly signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether 9/11 was an inside job.

Morris was not dissuaded by Jones' subsequent denial that he believed there was an actual conspiracy.

  • "An investigation as to whether it was an inside job or not? You have got to be kidding," Morris said. "And this guy is in the administration and they're not calling for him to quit? What does Obama use for vetters?"

  • Jones also got into hot water this week regarding an expletive he used in describing Republicans.

    Morris also said Obama's healthcare plan is in deep trouble. He said abandoning the public option would spell doom in the House. "The people's republic of Pelosi won't approve of it," he said. And keeping the public option and putting it to a vote won't get him the 60 votes he needs to shut off debate.

    Comparing Obama's healthcare push to Bill and Hillary Clinton's in 1993, Morris said: "The big difference between Clinton's approach and his approach is that Clinton never tried to emasculate Medicare. Obama is. The Clinton approach was not to take money from the elderly and give it to others."

  • Van Jones also denied he ever said a lot of things, but then, OOPS!, there are those pesky tapes of interviews. The people who know this man know he is a liar. If he had been vetted through the Senate, as all cabinet level appoints have to be, he wouldn't have passed the muster. That is why BO has 34 czars. They are a bunch of thugs, radicals, extremists, socialist, who have the president's ear. None of them had to show their credentials to the public, yet they give advice which affects the public. They are paid with public funds. I guess this is the transparency change BO promise. There was at least some and now there's none.

  • This is also why Obama has been pushing for the Fairness Doctrine, which is just a sneaky way of trying to control the internet....which is proving with every word he utters to be his nemesis!!! LOL

  • DIck Morris is a crazy lying hack, many in the Republican leaderhip ARE assholes, Jones has every right to question the official govt story from 9/11. Cheney told a congressman to fuck off, on the senate floor and said he felt good about it but no one on the right cared. Obama is opposed to the Fairness Doctrine

    You mean like the energy industry insiders who were kept under wraps and helped craft Bush energy policy, Cheneys energy task force that refused to allow any environmental concerns a voice?


    Obama is Bush lite, I don't know what so many Republicans are upset about.
