New Obama advisor: “I’d pay money just to shine the brother’s shoes.”

By GottaLaff

Environmentalist Van Jones gets to realize a dream:

“I love Barack Obama,” environmental activist Van Jones was quoted as saying in a January profile in The New Yorker. “I’d pay money just to shine the brother’s shoes.” […]

Jones will join the administration as “Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).”

He’ll work under CEQ Chairwoman Nancy Sutley.

According to Falkenstein: “His duties will include: helping to shape and implement job-generating climate policy; working to ensure equal protection and equal opportunity in the administration’s climate and energy proposals; and publicly advocating the administration’s environmental and energy agenda.”
As you can see, shoe-shining wasn’t listed as one of his new duties.

Uh, Uh! He is cute but our Prez is so handsome it hurts.I was in B&N last week, and they have their whole Obama section. Of course they had the best of best Obama pics. I told my neighbor, who was with me, It just does not make any sense for a man to be that good looking. 🙂

Van Jones was one of the panelists at the State of Black Union, and he kicked ass. So this is great news.
