Obama Adviser 'Has to Resign'

Dick Morris, speaking on FOX's "On the Record" on Sept. 3, said that Van Jones, President Barack Obama's "green jobs" adviser, must resign after he reportedly signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether 9/11 was an inside job.
Morris was not dissuaded by Jones' subsequent denial that he believed there was an actual conspiracy.
"An investigation as to whether it was an inside job or not? You have got to be kidding," Morris said. "And this guy is in the administration and they're not calling for him to quit? What does Obama use for vetters?"
Jones also got into hot water this week regarding an expletive he used in describing Republicans.
Morris also said Obama's healthcare plan is in deep trouble. He said abandoning the public option would spell doom in the House. "The people's republic of Pelosi won't approve of it," he said. And keeping the public option and putting it to a vote won't get him the 60 votes he needs to shut off debate.
Comparing Obama's healthcare push to Bill and Hillary Clinton's in 1993, Morris said: "The big difference between Clinton's approach and his approach is that Clinton never tried to emasculate Medicare. Obama is. The Clinton approach was not to take money from the elderly and give it to others."http://www.newsmax.com/morris/van_j.../04/256541.html
