Thanks to reader Brent Munlin for the heads up on this just published article outlining a very creepy Obama White House internal memo attempting to outline for all those working inside that White House why they should love and honor Valerie Jarrett. I can recall very early in the days of the White House Insider interviews when I was being told of how much power and influence “that woman” has throughout the Obama administration and thinking then, as many of you likely were, “who is this Valerie Jarrett?” Those days are long gone now of course, we know who she is. That doesn’t make things any less scary though, but rather just the opposite, and this internal memo adds a whole other layer of creepy to the relationship Jarrett has with the current President of the United States…
A soon-to-be-released book by Mark Leibovich reveals in excruciating detail the White House’s efforts to defend longtime Obama friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett in the run-up to a New York Times profile that ran in September 2012.
Leibovich, himself a reporter for the New York Times, got ahold of a White House memo titled “The Magic of Valerie” that included 33 talking points circulated throughout the administration.
Here are the talking points excerpted in Leibovich’s forthcoming book, This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral-Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!-in America’s Gilded Capital:
-The magic of Valerie is her intellect and her heart. She is an incredibly kind, caring and thoughtful person with a unique ability to pinpoint the voiceless and shine a light on them and the issues they and the President care about with the ultimate goal of making a difference in people’s lives.
-Valerie is the perfect combination of smart, savvy and innovative.
-Valerie has an enormous capacity for both empathy and sympathy. She balances the need to be patient and judicious with the desire to get things done and work as hard as possible for the American people from the White House.
-To know what both drives Valerie Jarrett and why the President values her opinion so much, you benefit greatly from really getting to know the woman.
-Valerie is tapped in to people’s experiences, their good times and bad. She knows from her own life what it is like to believe and strive for your dreams.
-Valerie expects people to work their hearts out for the President and never forget where you work and the magnitude.
-Single mother, woman working to the top in a competitive male dominated world, African, working for change from the grassroots to big business.
-Valerie is someone here who other people inside the building know they can trust. (need examples.)
Note how the line is blurred between the two people of Valerie Jarrett and Barack Obama in this memo. Several times they are basically described here as being ONE AND THE SAME. It further consolidates the view given by Barack Obama himself and those close to him who described Jarrett as “Obama’s brain”.
I have read and re-read this internal memo excerpt several times now, and it gets creepier with each reading. I could not help but be reminded of that equally disturbing story of the 2008 DNC convention in Denver where a tired and nearly incoherent Barack Obama goes into a room with Jarrett only to re-emerge a short time later a changed man, vibrating with energy and a ready to perform in front of an adoring crowd once again.
It remains a story of nightmares – just as the last five and a half years have been for America… -UM
