"Czar Wars!"

Sept. 8) -- While you were out this Labor Day weekend, you might have missed Sunday's resignation of Van Jones, President Obama's "green jobs czar." Plenty of commentators noticed and, two days later, they're still chattering about all the implications.

Most see it as an example of the White House caving in to pressure from conservatives or trying to eliminate distractions from the president's renewed push for health care reform. For some, it marks Glenn Beck's ascendance to a leading role in the media opposition to the Obama administration. The Fox News host portrayed Jones as a radical and a Communist in a broader campaign attacking Obama advisers known as "czars."

News that Jones had used a crude epithet to describe Republicans and signed a petition suggesting the Bush administration was in on the 9/11 attacks added to his troubles.
