Must read article for Obama watchers

From “Obama’s Strange Dependence on Valerie Jarrett” —

Michelle and Barack Obama’s closest friend and adviser is Chicago politico (and slumlord) Valerie Jarrett.

Chrissy’s Site Bites @

Jarrett has no qualifications to be the principal adviser to the president of the United States, yet he turns to her for definitive advice on all issues.

She has given him terrible advice over and over, and still he turns to her.

Jarrett pushed ObamaCare. Rahm Emanuel advised a small, bipartisan health care reform. Emanuel is now out of the White House.

Jarrett pushed the Solyndra fiasco. Larry Summers warned Obama not to get involved in venture capital of any sort. Summers is now out of the White House.

Jarrett pushed Obama to take on the Catholic Church over contraception. Bill Daley argued against it. Daley is now out of the White House.

Jarrett told Obama that the mission to kill bin Laden was too politically risky. Obama listened to her for four months, canceling three operations to kill Osama bin Laden before finally saying yes on the fourth.

The “I made the decision to go after bin Laden” decision was ultimately not made because it was the right thing to do, but because they were worried about the political fall-out if the public learned that Obama had refused to go after bin Laden when he had the chance!

    One of the reasons Obama went to personally appeal for the Olympics in Chicago was because the Olympic village would be built on property where some of Jarrett’s slums are located.She could have sold the land and made hundreds of millions of dollars.

      Yet another excellent example of how pandering to Valerie has led to Obama making his presidency look ridiculous. And a good topic for a Site Bite. Thanks, Pete!
