    In a recent interview on the radio, Vice President Biden indicated he did not know who Van Jones is, even though he was once a czar in the Obama administration.

    Is Van Jones so toxic they are now trying to convince us they don't know who the man is?

    Whodey, he said:

    “I really don’t know much about the Van Jones group, except what I read in the press.”


    He said he doesn't know about the group/movement (the "occupy Wall Street" movement).

    He didn't say he didn't know who Van Jones is.

    I know the headline was misleading, but sometimes it's also a good idea to read the quote or listen to the clip.

    Listen to the clip again. Half way through he says, "Van Jones, whoever the guy is..."

    I think Bden knows all to well who Van Jones is and is precisely why he tried to down play the situation. Then he rambled on about how the Tea Party was "OK" with him and it all made me want to hurl.
