This video was recorded in February, at a conference in California, before Van Jones was made Director of Green Jobs for President Obama. Now Fox News and the right wing media are taking things out of context. He referred to them as a**holes, but he also said that he could be an a**hole too, meaning that sometimes it takes an a**hole to get things done. Now Glenn Beck is attacking Jones for these comments . People are saying that Beck’s attacks  are because of  the advertiser boycott implemented against Beck by Color of Change, an advocacy group founded by Jones. .

QUESTIONER: When [President George W. Bush] was in office, [Republicans] had a majority; it wasn’t 60, it wasn’t more than 60, but they pushed through all of these bills,” the questioner began. “But when we have, you know, 58, we seem to not be able to move things as progressively as many of us here would want, as Obama wants. I know that he has a strong interest in bipartisanship, but when no Republicans are voting with him, … how were they Republicans able to push things through when they had less than 60 senators, but somehow we cant?

JONES: Well the answer to that is, they’re assholes.

QUESTIONER: I was afraid that was the answer.

JONES: As a technical, political kind of term. And Barack Obama is not an asshole. Now, I will say this: I can be an asshole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama, are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity.
