    It's about time.

    Typical Washington apology, though:

    And, I guess, it ain't nothing but a thing to Obama:



    Well, at least they know that citizens are watching...and that racist extremists with dangerous views will have the light shined on them.

    Obama had to cut this fella loose...if he wants any credibility at all. A kook like Jones could make such damaging news as to make a presidency completely unsalvageable.

    Obama had to know about Jones before he appointed him. The problem is how many more of the czars have the same background and views as Jones?

    Since Obama's past is sealed.. I figured he is just like Jones.

    .

    Now we know why Obama prefers the Czarist appointments.

    Congressional committees looking into the backgrounds of the extremists he appoints as czars just won't do.

    Unless they are as stupid as Jones, they can quietly continue their extreme socialist/communist/marxist agenda.

    Van Jones will still be dangerous outside of the President's official staff. I think he's the type of person who will insist that rightwingers got to the President and forced him out. He'll insist that he was pressured to retract his controversial statements but that in-fact he still holds to them.

    He'll go on speaking tours with lots of press coverage and then a book deal will be signed. Oprah will then want him on her show.

    The sky's the limit with this guy.

    Just because the President pretends that Van on not on his staff anymore doesn't make it so.

    It is instructive that Obama says he did not ask him to resign.

    If he did and says he didn't , that would be no different than the other lies he constantly tells.

    If he really did not ask him to resign, that tells us even more about how deep seated his own radicalism and racism is.

    Absolutely! Anything other than:

    " I made a grave error in my vetting process once again. I do not now nor have I have ever supported his radical positions. I repudiate them and would not have such a person on my staff. I am sorry for this error."

    Shows Obama's radicalsim.
