Republican Press Attack Mob

Recently, the right wing press has been attacking Van Jones for his radical views and using his appointment to demonstrate how radical the White House has become with Obama in office. This is a laughable assertion. One (in this case, low-level) appointment cannot be used to generalize the entire administration. If that were true, then why don’t the Republicans base their opinion of Obama on the Gates appointment? Why not, because it’s not representative. That’s why not. Van Jones, too, is not representative of the entire administration. If he were, the country would be doing a whole hell of a lot better. What I find it interesting that what Fox News seems to think is abhorrent, frankly, I (and probably others who read BNG) consider street cred.

Update (by BP): Van Jones resigned on Saturday (9/5).
