Van Jones Calls Out Progressives

I thought progressives were too quick to go from hopey to mopey. They skipped the fight in the middle…You hear people talking about a disappointment [in Obama] and this kind of thing. I’m still of the view it was never, ‘Yes, he can.’ It’s supposed to be, ‘Yes, we can.’ And the ‘we’ was not evident in a couple of those years.

— Van Jones, former Green Energy Czar in the Obama administration. Jones left that post after being targeted by Glenn Beck for calling Republicans “assholes” before he joined the government. It was also noted he once signed a petition asking for more information about 9/11.
