Jarrett: Wanting Status Quo Is Extreme

From an unfazed Politico:


Jarrett: GOP ‘more and more extreme’

By: Mike Allen
November 1, 2009

White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the rise of a Conservative Party challenger in a closely watched upstate New York House election shows that the Republican Party leadership is “becoming more and more extreme, and more and more marginalized.”

“It’s rather telling when the Republican Party forces out a moderate Republican and it says, I think, a great deal about where the Republican Party leadership is right now,” Jarrett said when asked about the GOP candidates’ decision to suspend her campaign, making it more likely the Conservative will win Tuesday’s special election

Asked what the New York development shows about the Republican Party leadership, Jarrett said: “I think it’s becoming more and more extreme, and more and more marginalized. Look at the number of people who actually say that they’re registered, consider themselves a Republican. And if that’s the direction they want to go, fine. What we’re going to do is what we’ve always done. And that is, we’re going to reach out.

“We’re going to try to include as many people to be a part of our governing process — being open, being transparent,” Jarrett continued. “And we’ll let the American people decide. And right now what you see is a great deal of momentum moving forward, for example, on health care. The American people want change. They don’t want the same old health care system that’s not affordable, that doesn’t offer coverage to everybody, that keeps escalating in cost. And what we’ve seen from the Republicans is, really, a desire to have the status quo. And, George, that’s not acceptable anymore.”

Note that according to Ms. Jarrett, wanting the status quo is the new extreme.

    These people are beyond delusional. Open and transparent? Val, go and take another swig of the Kool-Aid.

    Sorry Ms. Lenin, we aren’t buying it.

    The problem the GOP is having is that the so-called leadership are a bunch of tax and spend big government socialists that look to this voter at least just like Democrats. Dede was put up as a candidate by out of touch party bosses who think their deals are important. She was forced out, not by the bosses but by the rank and file voters who have made it known they will vote issues and not party label. Note on her way out the door she supported the Democract rather than the Conservative who attracted the voters she took for granted. Sort of like we all grew up as Ford or GM families. After too many years of being sold the same crap we got disgusted and bought (voted) Toyota

    Obama has used 100% of his presidency to lobby & campaign non-stop for all around the globe. He doesn’t read any bills, or defense reports. He’s a loose cannon.

      Heck, he’s campaigning and running elections for Hondorus, Afganistan,
      aided Iran’s AhMadMan cheating and getting elected.

    Everytime I turn on my tv here in NOVA, there is stupid Barrack Hussein Obama hmm, hmm, hmm on tv for Creigh Deeds. I feel like I’m going to lose whatever the heck I just ate.
    BTW what the hell does “truth to power” mean? If I’m not mistaken, these a$$hats are in power. But perhaps I’m confused on this whole truth to power, throwback to the 1960’s garbage.

    Valerie has got to be the Head Cheerleader for a multiple, head-on automobile accident.

    I hope “Status Quo” comes back to bite her in the arse! Monkey speak ….Monkey repeat!
    (What a butt puppet)

    It is not enough to simply be an American, uphold American principles and enjoy this status quo we have called freedom for decades – even centuries.

    No. Everything must be in a constant state of change, of societal revolution under the benevolent gaze of the state and its propagandists. Everyone must fit in nicely with his or her victim group and get their government lunch while there are still working people to be taxed.

    I just can’t figure out why Michelle quit practicing law in such a short time. Obama too.
