A report in the Chicago Sun-Times seems to confirm Ed Klein’s assertions about Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett. The story is about how Jarrett has not invited former WH Social Secretary Desiree Rogers to her daughter’s wedding, in yet another example of the petty, amateurish infighting in the Obama White House. In his #1 best-seller The Amateur, Klein details the power struggle and backstabbing that has been Jarrett’s calling card. In a recent op-ed for the Daily Caller, Klein wrote of Jarrett: “no other White House official in history has enjoyed such a unique relationship with both a president and a first lady, and yet the mainstream media have ignored Jarrett’s enormous influence over the shape and direction of the Obama administration.” He details her advising failures from the President’s botched Olympic pitch to the disastrous Solyndra loan to her infighting with big-time Chicago pols Bill Daley and Rahm Emanuel, who she squeezed from the inner circle, just like Rogers.
Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed (writing in third person): “Sneed has also learned two of Jarrett’s former White House irritants have not been invited: Former White House chiefs of staff Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley.”
Ed Klein in the Daily Caller: “During the savage internecine warfare between Jarrett and Obama’s first two chiefs of staff — Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley — Obama sided most of the time with Jarrett, a classic limousine liberal who believes that Obama was elected president in order to engineer social change. Ultimately, Jarrett emasculated Emanuel and Daley and forced them from their jobs.”
