YAWN: Former Obama czar launches yet another Anti-Tea Party.

Van Jones, President Barack Obama’s former special adviser for “green jobs, enterprise and innovation,” yesterday launched what he calls “The American Dream Movement.” In a punchy, two-hour webcast that was heavily promoted by MoveOn.org, the former green czar signaled his support for all ideas progressive — and his appalling unwillingness to face some simple facts.

Jones’ American Dream at first sounds familiar: a decent job, a college education, a dignified retirement, a secure future. But he seems to forget the pivot on which the Dream has always turned: an honest work ethic that proceeds from no sense of entitlement but rather from a grounded optimism that ability applied to opportunity will yield results.

Like Administration figures and honest tax returns, Czars and Tea Parties don’t mix.
