Full Text of Van Jones Resignation Letter

Here is the actual text of Van Jones' Resignation as President Obama's "Green Jobs" Adviser. It was issued late Saturday night, September 5, 2009:

"I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today.

On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.

I have been inundated with calls - from across the political spectrum - urging me to "stay and fight."

But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.

It has been a great honor to serve my country and my President in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement. I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future. I will continue to do so, in the months and years ahead."

Obama' administration is a reactionary admin. They will knowingly do, try, or say something they know is either wrong, misleading, or simply dishonest, and then wait to see the reaction. Wait to see if they get away with it.
Why do we have to put up with this. Why can't we simply have someone in office, who is honest and is pro-active?

Yay! I really didn't think he would resign. This is very very good for our country.
