Cass Sunstein Out!

He wants to go back to Harvard and teach, that's all.
He couldn't get the nudge job done, so Obama will find someone who can.
Obama sees him as a liability.
Obama threw him under the bus.
Obama needed to put him on ice.
What are you talking about? He hasn't left at all!

That's right. Cass Sunstein is OUT as the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, a/k/a "The Regulatory Czar." Haven't heard that, I suppose. In fact, this story broke last night and even Fox News isn't talking about it.

A Cass Sunstein does not go quietly into the night without some deep, dark reason. This is so deep and so dark that the White House doesn't even use the old bromide about "wanting to spend more time with his family." Ostensibly he's going back to Harvard to teach "behavioral economics," a/k/a creative "nudging" by regulation.

Ask yourselves: what is really going on here? If you click through to the article, you'll get the dope on what "behavioral economics" really means. You'll learn that the liberals got impatient with him, as if he didn't move fast enough.

And then you'll learn this interesting fact. Two years ago, according to a military source, he wrote a blueprint for ensuring Barack Obama's continuance in office beyond 2012 "by any means necessary." Valerie Jarrett allegedly signed off on this. And Obama started to implement it.

So why is he suddenly slipping out the back door, with no reporters asking any questions at all? Since when does a man like that get "dumped" with the Friday Afternoon Documents? What's the real dope? Is he ducking for cover? Covering up?

Or did Obama throw him under the bus, because his brilliant plans to shove people into voting for him are falling flat?

    Something strange is going on. This is the quietest White House departure, and of such a senior officer, that I have ever seen. And suppose he did write up a plan to keep Obama in "by any means necessary." Maybe Sunstein had to leave because, all of a sudden, people aren't reacting the way he or Obama thought they would.

    It appears to me that Obama's second brain had second thoughts. I am of course speaking about Valerie Jarrett.

    No news of this high level official's departure in the news, and on a Friday after office hours.... that's not so strange with this WH really. I would think after almost four years the press would be working feverishly on Friday evenings ---because that's when ANY news comes out of the WH. News that is usually bad publicity for Obama.

    So he leaves on the DL. Something could be up, though I suppose if he left through the regular channel then that might make people aware of what he was actually czar of, all his decisions for Obama, and that would mean bad publicity for Obama and democrats, just before the election. NOT good--especially after the Chick-fil-A fiasco!

    He got the machinery for change in place at all levels, put the people in place that need to be, so he'll work behind the scenes in academia ensuring progressive thought is the only thought tolerated in a university setting. I would like to get more info about the "by any means possible" scenario. How was the info vetted?

    In all probability Soros and the UN were unhappy with him - and I think it's THEIR bus that people get thrown under. I think Obama is nothing more than their foolish tool who will do anything they demand. This entire Administration should be run out of town on a rail - straight to a FEMA camp where we can then learn who, what, where, when, how. And I don't consider waterboarding cruel and inhumane treatment.
