Jones audio/video continues to surface, each painting a more complete picture of the man and his agenda.
VAN JONES: One of the things that has happened I think too often to progressives is that we don’t understand the relationship between minimum goals and maximum goals. Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said, okay, now, we want reparations for slavery. We want redistribution of all wealth. And we want to legalize mixed marriages. If they come out with a maximum program the very next day, they would have been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum program: You know, we just want to integrate these buses. The students a few years later came out with a very minimum program, we just want to sit at the lunch counter. But inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1954 to 1958, you know, complete revolution was on the table. For this country. And I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages. Right now we’re saying we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to some kind of eco capitalism. Where, you know, at least we’re not, you know, fast tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Well will that be enough? No, it won’t be enough.

Again, Obama says he should be judge by the quality of the counsel he seeks – so what are we learning? Based on this; the Presisent either has very poor judgement or he agrees with Van Jones.
He doesn’t agree Jones must go – if he does, we have a very big problem!
