"No Democrat is ever shamed out of public life; they’re merely transferred to a less visible position from which to continue the same subversion."

That's from RedState, regarding Van Jones's firing then rehiring at George Soros's Center for American Progress.

CAP is not just *any* old think tank. It is Soros-backed and operated by Clintonista John Podesta. It has a 180-person staff, including at least 10 full-time bloggers, and a $27 million budget. Podesta ran Obama’s transition team. CAP holds policy briefings that are reportedly packed full of reporters and lobbyists who want to get a feel of where the administration is going. They write policy that ends up in these 1,000 page bills Obama keeps trying to shove down our throats.

It is hard to tell where the Obama administration stops and Center for American Progress starts, no? The sad, sick truth is that this nut-job America-hating 9/11 truther will be allowed to influence policy and legislation probably no less than from his position as Green Jobs Czar.

Of course, he's now not proposing his whacked out ideas on the taxpayer's dime. But Americans should keep a close eye on the influence CAP has on the Obama administration. It's a lot.
