Meet Obama's bodyman: The White House 'Chief of Stuff' who caters to the President's every whim

...a tiny cubicle just outside...the Oval Office sat Reggie Love, a 6ft 5in, 18-stone, shaven-headed, muscle-packed...

...the man is fast, athletic and tough... he is not one of the new President’s official bodyguards.


Heavy duty: Reggie Love, President Obama's bodyman, lugs bags to a car
and, right, on the campaign trail

...Reggie, a charismatic and immaculately dressed 26-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina, spends more time with Mr Obama than anyone else - even the First Lady...he is the President’s ‘bodyman’....

The personal protection role has long been assumed by the highly-trained bodyguards of the Secret Service but...

...remained a little-known political tradition until the inner workings of the White House were dramatised in the TV drama The West Wing...


Obama and Reggie with another aide in the campaign aircraft

...It is Reggie who holds Mr Obama’s BlackBerry, dials the numbers on his mobile phone, briefs the White House chef on what the President would like for lunch ...Until Reggie Love, bodymen tended to be regarded as glorified butlers...

But Mr Obama promises to be a different kind of President - with a different kind of bodyman.

Reggie, who even the notably cool Mr Obama acknowledges is super-cool, has a suitably pithy phrase for his role. He is the "White House Chief of Stuff."


Brotherly love: Reggie sticks close to Obama as they take to the streets

This guy raises all sorts of speculation, including Frank Marshall Davis speculations. But who knows.

There’s some info at Wikipedia, although the article seems deliberately short:

So does he get to stay in the house?

He should certainly not be legislating by executive order. There is supposed to be a system of checks and balances.

Has he even signed a single bill from Congress yet?

The media will gush over his accomplishments in the first 100 days. But how many were anything but executive rule?

"i find the blackberry think interesting. since all WH comms are restricted perhaps this is a way ole barry gets around the email and IT restrictions, kind of like, no i dont have a blackberry but i know a man who does.

He doesn't need to get around it. They caved into him and said he can keep his Blackberry.

"Chief of Stuff' who caters to the President's every whim.."

And I wonder what those "whims" might be?

That is a VERY interesting idea. Could be a way to get around FOIA requests. I don’t know if it would hold up in court (IANAL), but it definitely adds some more chaos to the mix.
