The media have identified the problem with the Obama presidency and want her tarred and feathered.

Or just fired. Or sidelined. Or made an ambassador to some faraway land.

Her name is Valerie Jarrett.

White House aide and longtime Chicago pal of Barack and Michelle Obama has been a target roughly from the day she stepped foot in Washington.

But now, in the wake of the Democrats’ midterm wipeout, the press is really unloading on her. She has become the scapegoat-in-chief.

But the press has a shakeup mentality: all major political defeats must be followed by some kind of housecleaning. And reporters are getting tired of the story line about Obama essentially brushing off the debacle. So the journalistic knives are out for Jarrett.

Although I’m told it’s a coincidence, it’s striking that Politico and the New Republic have both published tough pieces on Jarrett at roughly the same time.

The New Republic story, by Noam Scheiber, vacuums up the internal sniping—without names attached, of course. One aide calls her influence “pretty toxic.” Another says she’s regarded “as a spy.”

Jarrett also has “an outsize say on ambassadorships and judgeships. She helps determine who gets invited to the First Lady’s Box for the State of the Union, who attends state dinners and bill-signing ceremonies, and who sits where at any of the above. She has placed friends and former employees in important positions across the administration—‘you can be my person over there,’ is a common refrain.

In fact, Obama aides were stunned when Jarrett told Obama on Air Force One during the campaign, “Mr. President, I don’t understand how you’re not getting 85 percent of the vote.”

The Politico story, by Carol Felsenthal, carries the unsubtle headline “Fire Valerie Jarrett.”

On balance, it says, “it appears that Jarrett has been more an obstructer than a facilitator over the past six years when it comes to governing, and it’s probably long past time for the president to move her gently into another role.

“Her undefined role combined with what by all accounts has been almost unlimited proximity to the Obamas has proved a bad mix. She seems to isolate the president from people who might help him or teach him something—and if there’s one thing that has become clear about Obama, it’s that he doesn’t get to hear enough outside voices.”

I say leave her there. She and Obama will completely destroy the Democrats in the next two years.

This is like saying that Walter could be the president without Jeff Dunham.

She is what the empty suit is full of.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Will it get any better with someone else the Obummer and his pals might choose to replace her?

Nope, not one single bit. In fact they very likely will choose someone far worse.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

Lot will be uncovered of MANY
Valerie Jarrett was born Nov. 14, 1956, in Shiraz, Iran, where her parents, James and Barbara Bowman, lived for six years. Her father, a doctor, was working in Iran as part of a program that sent American physicians to developing countries.

The family also lived for a year in London before settling in the Hyde Park area of Chicago.

Jarrett's great-grandfather, Robert Robinson Taylor, was the first African-American to graduate from MIT.

Jarrett did her undergraduate work at Stanford and received her law degree from the University of Michigan.

In 1983, she married a friend from childhood, William Robert Jarrett, who was a doctor and the son of Chicago Sun-Times columnist Vernon Jarrett.

6. The couple divorced in 1988, and Jarrett's ex-husband died in 1993 from a heart attack. Their only child, Laura, is studying law at Harvard.

Jarrett worked with two private law firms. She eventually specialized in commercial real estate.

She went to work in the city of Chicago's Law Department under Mayor Harold Washington and held a series of positions under Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Most recently, she was CEO of the Habitat Co., a real estate management and development firm in Chicago.

She met Barack Obama in 1991 when he accompanied his fiancée, Michelle Robinson, to a dinner with Jarrett as part of Michelle's job interview for a position in the mayor's office. Michelle got the job, and the three have been friends ever since.
