The ‘Obama Whisperer’ – Valerie Sighed, People Died

New Republic: “The Obama Whisperer”

I’ll make my bid to get on her s#!t list, and come right out and say it – Valerie Jarrett costs lives!

The Obama Whisperer, SHE who leads him from behind, is also the person most responsible for the occasions when Obama seems to dither, and lose the advantage due to an excess of caution.

We already know that Jarrett was the prime non-mover behind the multiple delays in the Bin Laden raid (Obama Bin Busted), but more recently we learned that Obama dithered again and again over utilizing the intelligence as to where James Foley and other journalists were being kept by ISIS. Same modus operandi, same influence? Valerie sighed, People died??

Noam Scheiber over at The New Republic wrote a piece which tried to be flattering about Jarrett being Obama’s top confidante and reflection of his “authentic self”, but ended up being more frightening than flattering.

A few samples from the article:

Scaring the kiddies:

“[When] a longtime source who left the Obama White House years ago [was asked] for his impressions of Jarrett, he confessed that he was too fearful to speak with [Scheiber], even off the record.”
Maoist former communications director, Anita Dunn said “[Jarrett’s] role since she has been at the White House is one of the broadest and most expansive roles that I think has ever existed in the West Wing,
Another former official said “… She went to whatever meeting she wanted to go to—basically all of them—and then would go and whisper to the president.”
Also, “[J]arrett is not above keeping a s#!t list — or as hers was titled, a ‘least constructive’ list.”

Reinforcing the President’s bubble:

While aboard Air Force One at the end of the 2012 campaign, Jarrett turned to Obama and told him, “Mr. President, I don’t understand how you’re not getting eighty-five percent of the vote.” The other Obama aides in the cabin looked around in disbelief before concluding that she’d been earnest.
….
Jarrett’s job may be nothing less than to reflect the most authentic version of Barack Obama back at himself. “My speculation has always been, when you are any president or Democratic nominee, at the pinnacle of American political power, you are necessarily surrounded by layer and layer of bureaucracy,” says a former White House aide. “You’re completely disconnected. For someone to come to you and say, ‘I am going to be the person who is your connection to the real you’ … is very attractive.”

Puppet-mistress, alter-ego, other half of his brain, gatekeeper, confidante, little Barry’s nanny, his “rock” (Moochelle doesn’t like that title, bestowed by Vogue in 2008)….
Take your pick: When we had the Clintons, it was “two for the price of one” – you knew Hillary was involved in policy (IE HillaryCare). With the Obama’s, we KNOW that Moochelle will tell us what to eat, but we suspect, apparently with good reason, that Valerie tells Barack what his policies will be.
A half Kenyan President, mentored by an adviser born in Iran – what could go wrong?
