Jarrett holds the power in the WH and she does not want to lose it. She said (in response to O's concern, so the story goes, about causing a Chicago traffic jam when landing AF1 during rush hour) 'You might not appreciate your presidential perks, BUT I DO.' She will have O say and do anything, because he is a gutless puppet following her orders, and those of Michelle, and his mother-in-law. As long as O can ride big airplanes and get saluted and applauded and go to parties with the rich and famous kissing his feet, and not have to do any work at all, he will follow their orders.

When President Obama ran for office in 2008, many people believed he was a brilliant academic who would lead to bring people together, but a new book Leading From Behind by Richard Miniter, shows just the opposite. Miniter paints a picture of an Obama who doesn't lead at all, but instead is used as a pawn through which his many advisers push their own political agendas.

Take for example White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett. President Obama takes credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden while he hides Jarrett's efforts to stop the operation three times before...
