Chief Spokesman For Obama Leaving The White House

January 10, 2011 by  

Chief spokesman for Obama leaving the White House
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has confirmed that he will leave his post at the end of January, the latest in a series of shakeups in President Barack Obama's staff.

A senior administration official told FOX News that Gibbs will officially resign after Obama's State of the Union address, which is scheduled for Jan. 25. Although Gibbs will no longer be the chief spokesman for the White House, he will become an advisor to the President and work on his re-election campaign.

Gibbs' departure leaves another vacancy that the Obama administration has to fill. Former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel stepped down in October, and Obama's senior advisor David Axelrod is scheduled to leave Washington this month.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Obama said that his staff will not be "dilly-dallying" in its hiring process.

"You’ll be seeing announcements in due course. Obviously, we’ve got a lot of work to do," the President told the news provider. "The American people are expecting us to hit the ground running and start working with this new Congress to promote job growth and keep the recovery going."

    Are the rats jumping ship?

    • Granny Mae

      The rats are not jumping ship. They are circling the wagons to start working on Obamas re-election ! We should be working on making sure he doesn’t get re-elected. Chances are good for his re-election. Think about it. He controls all the main media networks, and those that follow him do not believe he is dangerous to this country. If you don’t believe me just look at the posts on here. When you see the right hand moving look to see what the left hand is doing !

    Comment? WHY?, it is never posted!

    • EddieW

      Hmmm guess your comment was indeed posted!!
      Wish I could post this with what I have in BOLD and what I have in different colors…but no such luck!!

      It’s truly amazing!!! The guy that shot the congress woman in AZ is a leftist! Then the height of insanity…they…the left…
      blame Sarah Palin & the Tea Party???? Hellloooo???

      • geller

        Don’t think so. There is a picture of him at a rally that the crazy lady, (that ran against Harry Reed)was having.

      • who cares

        Eddie w. wishful thinking but this guy was in your guys court. He’s a left handed person, But a right wing nut like all of you. His Idle was hitler, his daddy figure is bush w. they found a nazi flag, Aryan book, mein Kampf books. he hated the govrnment very mush like you right wing nuts. take it accept for what it is and run with it. Even the tea (pee) party are back pedaling. If Que Sarah Sarah palin wont accept responsibility for the shooting even after she used crosshair on, for Democrats she also called them bullseye. Glenn Beck he should take blame as well.

        • Dan az

          Give it up because who cares right?
          Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunman in Saturday’s Arizona shooting, attended a high school that is part of a network in which teachers are trained and provided resources by a liberal group founded by Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers and funded by President Obama, WND has learned.

          who cares,

          Get over it. That deal with the cross hairs was used first by the dems back during the Clinton campaign only they were targets !

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Linda

          you are so stupid read what Dan az has to say all you liberal leaning moronic idiots were the product of a long genetic mistake you all are 100% totally insane and rude to the point of having the brain of a pea

  • Mick

    I’m sure going to miss the Huh…..The president Huh…….huh…..I can’t comment on this Huh……Huh……
    What a freak of nature just like the rest of this administration…………We deserve much better.

    • who cares

      Mick, Bush was a delight, a joy for brain dead right wing nut he was a laughter for the entire world. I’m sure you miss him!

  • patrick

    I’m pretty sure he is leaving so that he can continue to promote more lies about Obammy boy and his crew of crooked czars. Now with the killings in AZ, the liberal democrats will start over agin with gun control and blaming Repubs, Tea Party people and conservatives for the murders by a young guy that was reading materials that Obammy boy is trying to instill in America… Socialism, communism, and Marxism. you know, the same crap Obammy was studing in college and the people Obammy hung with that lived by and promoted the same stuff. The killings happened because Americans are so sick of the daily crap Obammy is promoting or changing… this is simply all the anger coming out!!!

    • geller

      The crap he was reading wasn’t from Obama, it was from Mr. lame himself, Glen Beck. He is just another one of the Fox corporate Republican Networks bimbo boys. The Republican Network is constantly sending their hate messages. What happened is sadly only the beginning. When you live by the gun you will die by the gun. At least that’s what I’ve been told.

      • Dan az

        try again this time without the spin!

          the only time i hear any kind of hate is from the moronic left, conservatives have a much higher opinion of themselves, most were educated in the finest schools, not the free welfare ones and we know who loves welfare and who sits on their a’s all day right, the liberals!

  • tim

    Imagine that, an angry liberal. Too bad most of them aren’t smart enough to see what he was reading, especially the media who is trying to blame it on right wings, tea partiers and palin!!!

    • eddie47d

      I see the slippery slope folks are in full swing. You know, black is white and gray is blue.I have seen nothing to put this Jared Loughnor in the left camp. He had verbally attacked his fellow students with right wing rhetoric. It was so extreme and disruptive they had to expel him. Looks like his actions are fairly clear cut so why would you say any differently. Are you a supporter of his misdeeds and secretly admire what he did?

      • Robin from Arcadia, IN

        eddie47d You are the only one on a slippery slope. Of course the media is going to blame the Tea Party and the Republicans. If a Republican member of Congress had been shot it probably would have been ignored completely! This is horrendous and how you think anyone can condone such an act is barbaric at best.

        • eddie47d

          I rather doubt that Robin! You would have gotten your coverage too (if that was your point)

      • Stan Smith

        Kool aid Drinker! Blame the Right all you want Watch Mr. Maddow and other Libtard media all you want! Here the Link The media refuse to report the Real Facts! I forgot Libtards don’t want to believe the truth

        • eddie47d

          First of all this guy is a cold blooded murderer whether he thinks he is doing the dirty work for the left or right. Either way he is a turncoat with a selfish attitude and doesn’t think much of those around him. To me he is another person putting fear into our political process and will only discourage citizen participation.Then again maybe these same citizens will see what politicians are up against and participate even more.

  • s c

    People, this White House yahoo is sending us another message. BEFORE this pretender sneaked into the White House, he told the American people that he’d “hit the ground running.” Now that some of his favorite rats are diving off a sinking ship, he’s at it AGAIN.
    This time, he promises to “hit the ground running” to ‘work with the new Congress.’ I can’t wait until

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      SC I think Barry would be beating path back to Kenya, not Chicago!

      • s c

        Robin, I know how you feel, but Obummer will most likely go back to Chicago. Look at it this way, the Clintons didn’t go back to Arkansas because that state was a stepping-stone for Bubba and the wife.
        In Obummer’s case, he’ll always have Chicago ties.
        If his ego is still intact, he may try to imitate Bubba, and try to be an ambassador, or even “work” for the UN.
        Obummer doesn’t have the same “friends” as the Clintons. And, remember, Bubba said that at one time, Obummer would have served Bubba his coffee.
        They work for the same corrupt “people,” but the Clintons are seen as a cut above Obummer. That’s life in the political septic tank, where the really big chunks always rise to the top.

        • Dan az

          That’s life in the political septic tank, where the really big chunks always rise to the top.
          that fits perfectly thanks!

        • Granny Mae


          I don’t look for Obama to head back anywhere any time soon. There is a lot of work going on under the serface to get him re-elected and you can bet your bottom dollar he sure is going to hit the ground running. His staff is huge so they are doing a lot of work on the next election. By the way I heard something tonight that floored me. One of the television preachers told that the government has told the major banks in the US not to loan any money to church’s ! In fact they are calling in church loans even those that have never missed a payment ! I have my opinion on that but I’m sure we all will have one on that subject and probably none will be the same ! People there is a lot going on in the shadows and most people are not noticing anything. Too many distractions. This Arizona shooting is going to be prime news for quite some time and already they are using it to blame the right and also to bring up gun control. Let me ask you have you ever seen a gun shoot by itself? Ever ? When they get through banning guns I wonder if they will ban bombs next and then knives and then baseball bats and so on ? Better watch everything going on even in the shaddows because that is how we got in this shape in the first place. We just weren’t looking and couldn’t imagine there were people that wanted to do what these people have done ! If we don’t stay sharp we will never be able to change things back to where they should be ever again !

          • Granny Mae

            sorry that should say surface !

  • patrick

    Who ever this idiot eddie47 is wow such a dummy. He is writing crap all over these sites and people are seeing what a fruitcake he really is. For sure he is yet another liberal democrat Obammy boy loving kind of dude.

    • eddie47d

      Then Patrick you’d better start coming up with some useful facts instead of useless name calling. Then we’ll see who the dummy is. You’re one can short of a six pack!

  • The Munz

    He is only leaving so that he can work on Obama’s campaign for re-election. He will be there behind the scenes with more political clout than ever.

  • 45caliber

    Good riddance and don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out.

    Actually, I always felt sorry for him, trying to make Oblama’s mistakes sound better than they were. I wouldn’t want that job either.

  • 45caliber

    Good riddance and don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out.

    Actually, I always felt sorry for him. He was always having to come up with something to try to make Oblama’s mistakes look better than what they were. I wouldn’t want that job either.

  • Stan Smith

    Meet the new Idiot same as the old Idiot!

  • newspooner

    The man was a knowledgeable liar, plain and simple.

  • http://com i41

    edee, what facts are you spouting off about. This drug using f–king idoit was a first class liberal. He hated Giffords because she had been a fence jumper republican and became a dumbocrat. Any state thaty has legalized “medicinal” mary jane, are socialized union states, Montana and California just to mention 2. Since you say you are a blanket butt, and another minority victumology student. Peyote buttons and only all natural use is OK. So is milk weed and death camis all natural and isn’t GMO but sure will kill you. Now everyone will understand your liberial jock strap adoration of Onumnutts and the soros socialist party mantra. Too much natural drug usage, and beign a multi gerenational mind set of a ward of the government taking care of everything. If eddee is really a puppy snacher and a rez runner. That would explain the love of socialized medicine and total government control over every facet of his and everyones lives.

    • geller

      With all your mumbo gumbo I have two words for you YOU SUCK

  • marvin

    two words for gibbs goodby and goodridence and take your master with you

  • Steve

    Gibbs is a TURD WITH EARS! It makes me sick to see how disrespecting he is of people in the media who try to dig for answers and don’t just take the Obama administration’s propogana at face value. I think he did a good job keeping the media from asking questions by being a dick to them. Now as for why he’s leaving I think it’s just so he can get paid back for being such a devoted follower and drinking all of his koolaid. It’s time to get paid! That’s why most people go to Washington isn’t it? They all eventually get rich. Or maybe it’s all the young boys?

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    I think Gibb’s conscience caught up with him. You can only lie so long before it does. Probably hasn’t slept in months. Who will BO’s next Chief Liar and Excuse Maker be ? Bill Clinton doesn’t have a job or maybe Dan Rather. Who else would be eligible ? Pee Wee Herman, my ex-wife, Carrot Top,….?

    • who cares

      gunner689, what does gunner689 stand for?? Wing nut have nothing other than being unhappy bunch of disgruntle spoil people.

      • Dan az

        Your name pretty much says it all.
        (left- Wing nut have nothing other than being unhappy bunch of disgruntle spoil people.)You forgot the winy cry babies that need a hug or a diaper change!The last fits you pretty well!

  • BrotherPatriot

    They are taking turns holding the “hot” potato. Gibbs lasted a lot longer than I thought he would. He got pinned down a few times & only could stammer by some very well placed questions during his time.

    What a farce this all is…wake up, my brothers & sisters.

    God Bless.
