Dy’er Sez: Like we were supposed to trust him to end the wars? Like we were supposed to trust him to go after the war criminals from the last administration? Like we were supposed to trust him to get the lobbyists out of government? Like we were supposed to trust him to bring more transparency to government? Like we were supposed to trust him with 24 trillion in the banker bailouts? Like we were supposed to trust him to post all bill up for a vote to be released to the public a week before they were voted on? Like we were supposed to trust him to stoop warrantless wiretaps? Like we were supposed to trust him to bring about a change we can believe in?
Mrs. Jarrett, either you are a blind, misguided, starry-eyed simpleton or you know damn well you are bald faced lying and trying to avoid answering a very serious question. Either way, you should not be entrusted to be in the position you are in. And as for Obama…I trust him as much as I trusted Bush and company.

Valerie Jarrett: Trust Obama on Blackwater
By Jeremy Scahill
President Obama’s senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was confronted over the weekend with the fact that the administration continues contracting with the scandal-plagued mercenary firm Blackwater (which now does business as Xe Services and US Training Center). “He has to balance national security with transparency and I bet with him. I bet with him and I’m asking you to trust him,” Jarrett told a raucous crowd Saturday at the NetRoots Nation conference in Pittsburgh.
Jarrett was directly asked why Obama keeps paying millions of dollars to Blackwater—a question which received substantial applause and which Jarrett failed to directly answer. Instead, she appealed to a commitment of faith in Obama by activists and bloggers. “I think the point of the matter is that you also have to say we are six months in. I think you have to accept the fact that some things are going to take a little bit of time and that you have to follow a process where you’re going to get some buy-in from the people who you are counting on,” Jarrett said.
