… [...] So to all you liberal organizations in the “veal pen” — this is your moment of truth. I get all your emails. And the next Common Purpose meeting is probably on Tuesday. If you can’t get it together to at least put out a statement of support for Van Jones and condemn the White House for using him as a sacrificial lamb to right wing extremists that will devour us all if left unchecked, it’s time to add “proudly liberal only when it doesn’t matter” to your logo and be done with it. – Jane Hamsher
Will labor blink when further compromise comes down from White House mountain on health care?
On Labor Day, I’m thinking about all the work put in to elect a Democratic Congress and president, looking at what we have to show for it. So far I’m not impressed at all.
As for Glenn Beck, send Keith Olbermann every thing you’ve got on him, though he’s not the issue at all. However, for what Olbermann does he’s the perfect target.
The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future. – Glenn Beck
As for the rest of us, this is about President Obama and his White House team proving that people are expendable, as are our issues.
Van Jones is just the latest. On Labor Day, this message makes me choke. Another progressive just lost his job and we lost a voice.
Just for the record, as I’ve been saying for months, Barack Obama isn’t doing anything now he didn’t telegraph he was going to do all along. Passion for purpose on health care just isn’t his thing, never was.
