White House Green Jobs Adviser: Republicans Are '*******s' http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/09/02/white-house-green-jobs-adviser-republicans-*******s/ Van Jones, the Obama administration's "green jobs" adviser, told a group of listeners earlier in the year that the reason Republicans are stonewalling the president is because they're "*******s." Jones' remarks were recorded in a video from February that was posted to YouTube. He made the remark during an energy lecture in Berkeley, Calif., after a woman in the audience asked him why President Obama and congressional Democrats were having trouble moving legislation -- even though Republicans, with a smaller majority, didn't have as much trouble earlier in the Bush administration. "Well, the answer to that is, they're *******s," Jones said, to uproarious laughter. "That's a technical, political science term." The questioner responded, "I was afraid that that was the answer." But Jones said that, even though Obama is "not an *******," others have to step up the fight. "Now, I will say this. I can be an *******, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity," he said. Click here to see the video.
