Liberal Bloggers Give Van Jones a Standing O

Netroots Nation, a gathering going on now in Las Vegas of some of the most liberal bloggers from across the country, today welcomed former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones.  As you'll recall, Van Jones was dismissed from his post after his past as a Marxist and 9/11 truther came to light.


So what kind of reception does this radical ideology and behavior get you amongst liberals?  A standing ovation, apparently.  American Spectator reports from Vegas:
In a video introduction, former DNC chairman Howard Dean called Jones a "hero."

During his speech, Jones said that he threw himself a long "pity party" after his exit from the administration, but compared his own struggle to the larger state of the nation. He made the case for investing in new energy technologies, and dismissed concerns about the deficit.

"There's plenty of money out there, the only question is how to spend it," Jones said.

Plenty of money "out there" to spend--typical liberal philosophy.  Key words missing: plenty of other peoples' money...

In an onstage Q&A following the speech the Nation's Ari Melber said that the only reason Jones was targeted was that he was black and progressive.

Melber also told Jones, "You're popular here because you get stuff done, but also because you're cool."
