Van Jones: Left should re-elect, then push Obama

Van Jones is talking it up !!

Referring to the "change" that never happened,
He says the disappointed progressives (and some others) need to "get over it" !!

Sounds like he's talking about Obama.

Apparently he is pushing his new book,
and he suggests that Obama may not quite be the POTUS
the far left was "hoping" for


Maybe it's time to "Change" the diapers !

Van Jones is back with a message for disappointed progressives, Occupy Wall Street and other “post-‘Hope’” Democrats still looking to President Barack Obama for the change they voted for in 2008: Get over it.

“I think you need two sources of power to make change, and not just one. I think you need a head of state that’s willing to be moved, and a movement to do the moving,” said Jones, the former West Wing insider-turned-disillusioned outsider and a lightning rod for conservative critics.


Not "Left Enough" ? ....

Liberals must work hard to give Obama a second term, then force him to the left, Jones explained.

“We have to re-elect the president, and we have to re-energize our own movement. That’s how we get change. We’re not going to have a ‘vote and hope’ strategy. We’re going to have a ‘march-and create change’ strategy,” Jones said.

Van Jones - Obama is ?


Maybe Obama will end up as a "Left-Over" POTUS !!

Obama was never a lefty liberal. the far left should have known this, and had they bothered to listen to him verses just assume, they would have realized this. Their fault for thinking anything they stood for automatically applied to him.

and yes, they should vote for him in 12, because its not a left V right campaign, its a center verses far right campaign. Sometimes you got to vote to stand ground verses not vote and be blown back a mile


As far as anyone calling Obama a liberal...
MODERATOR EDIT -- INSULTING LANGUAGE
Obama is categorically more conservative than Ronald Reagan

So ya...liberal have reason to be a bit upset about no representation. Consider that. about %15 or so of the nation is pretty hard left..about the same with the hard right. The right however has pretty much all of their candidates trying to win over that one crowd. The left..nobody is even considering catering to the hard left..not even much lip service.

The country itself is socially left, yet our politics keep moving to the right and calling that center.

Fiscally I am middle of the road mind you...just make it make sense..corruption worries me more than spending (arguably the same). I don't mind paying for something, if it is a good deal and helps all or at least the needy.

Van Jones used to work for the White House.

Lets see now. Why did he quit?

I think it had something to do with Glenn Beck.

The left are saying Obama isn't left enough, while the right is saying Obama is such a leftist that he's a communist.

Then you got Mitt Romney, the most likely GOP candidate, who's record suggest he's actually more left than Obama.

We got a righty running as a Democrat, and a lefty running as a Republican.
This race will go down in the history book for who can pull off the biggest lies.

Have you noticed? Obama is self-destructing.


His meltdown over the Supreme Court revealed a " desperate " man who knows

his time is short.

The White House is in full damage control mode.

Eric Holder and Obama are currently busy with their homework assignment from

the courts! 3 page report - single spaced !!!

Does the Supreme Court have the authority to rule ObamaCare unconstitutional?
