    Who is this mystery woman of extraordinary influence? She is Valerie Jarrett, President Obama's close friend, confidant, and secret weapon, known to Washington insiders, but unknown to the folks in the hinterland.

    Of course Barack Obama was involved also.  It's called the Chicago Way.

      From Canadin Free Press:

      The New York Times calls her Barack Obama’s “old hometown mentor,” “closest friend in the White House,” “all-purpose ambassador,” “skillful envoy,” “emissary,” and the “ultimate Obama insider.”

      The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank dubs her “the real center of Obama’s inner circle,” with ties to the president that are “deep and personal.”

      The Wall Street Journal identifies her as the “essential member” of President Obama’s “inner set.”

    It explains so much.  Seems almost like we have an unelected president (Jarrett and other cronies) in the background and an elected mouthpiece in the foreground who golfs and travels and campaigns a lot. 

    It's  no wonder this president is hard to work with.  He just pontificates ultimatums.  Doesn't seem to know how to dialogue with any but his cronies.
