I find it interesting it was these two events that really got the ball rolling which led to his resignation and not for other previous statements and beliefs of Jones. Do we not care that he's a self-proclaimed terrorist? Do we not care that he believes that the Green Movement is the vehicle that will change our entire society as we know it? Do we not care that he thinks white people have been poisoning "our immigrants brothers and sisters?"
Also, why aren't we looking at our President Barack Obama? During the second presidential debate with John McCain he said that if you want to know what my beliefs are and where I stand on issues, look at the people that surround me. Does that mean that President Obama believes and thinks the same thing?
This I do know: Obama campaigned as a moderate and promised he's bring the Democratic and Republican parties together, but he has shown he is governing from the far left and is the most radical president we've had in history. It's my belief that Obama knows exactly who Van Jones was and his beliefs fell right in line with his own. Now he'll never say that and will chalk it up just like he did with Reverend Wright. We need to look at other individuals that surround our President.
Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana said, "The Constitution of the United States vests Congress with the responsibility to advise and consent in the appointment of high ranking officials by the president," Pence's statement continued. "To date, President Obama has appointed more than thirty individuals to czar positions within his administration without permitting the Congress or the American people to properly examine their backgrounds or public records."
