The Face Behind the Obama Shutdown

Topics: Political News and commentaries


The face and the real reason for this whole damn shutdown mess:

[...] "It was during one of those nightly sessions that Jarrett devised the no-negotiating strategy that Obama has employed in his fight with the GOP over the government shutdown," Klein said, citing sources within the administration.

"Valerie came up with the concept late at night, after the kids and grandma and were gone."

"She convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014 .

... Valerie also came with the idea of using the words 'hostage', and 'ransom',and 'terrorists' against the Republicans," Klein said.

Jarrett, who like the Obamas hails from Chicago, has deep ties to the president, First Lady Michelle and the extended family.

"Everyone in the Beltway knew Valerie Jarrett was influential. They didn't know how influential she was," said Klein, who interviewed more than a half dozen White House and former presidential advisers about the shutdown strategy.

Interestingly, Valerie Jarrett's strategy fit right in with Obama's victim mentality and his habit of putting his self and political agenda before the interests of the nation - as Jarrett well knows, having such a long close relationship with Barry and Michelle.
