I think it is a smart move for the Obama Administration given the controversy. Kudos to the all Americans out there who stood up and refused to accept government taxpaying money pay the salary of a hand selected non-vetted individual with radical tones and coarse rhetoric .

I think its utter bullshit. I don't subscribe to the 9/11 conspiracy theory but there are alot of Americans who do, should they be forced out of their jobs too? What about the ones who work in some type of government job?
Just because you become a part of someone's administration doesn't mean you are no longer entitled to your own opinion, especially when that opinion was voiced prior to joining the administration. If he signed the petition? So what! He was well within his rights to do so. Did he break a law by doing so? Nope, so why the heck should he be forced out of his job?
This is really about Glenn Beck's pity part. Jones co-founded the organization that took down nearly 60 of Beck's sponsors, so he's commissioned the right wing smear machine to attack.
Funny for a party that claims to support the constitution, they are trying REAL hard to squash one man's freedoms
