West Wing nervous for staff changes
POLITICO ^ | December 15, 2010 | CAROL E. LEE & GLENN THRUSH

Posted on 12/15/2010 7:04:48 AM PST by maggief

President Obama has delayed the most significant staff shuffle of his presidency until after New Year’s — but the changes may be more sweeping than anticipated and could include the hiring of high-profile Democrats defeated in the midterms.

David Plouffe, Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, who will become a senior adviser to the president as early as the first week of January, is perhaps the most significant addition to Obama’s staff. He is expected to take an expansive new role including running the embattled White House press and messaging operations, people with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.

“It’s harder to get his time on it” during the lame-duck session, a senior administration official said of Obama. “I think he’ll think about a lot of this on vacation.”

Ah, yes. David Plouffe. Best known for pre-packaging news "segments" that the network and cable news shows run as news.....uhhhh.....segments.

And while Obama is at it you should see his new arrangement for deck chairs on the Titanic.


The problem with this regime starts at the top. Nothing done anywhere else will make up for the fact that Obama wants to be a Hugo Chavez / Fidel Castro style dictator. People are catching on and it will only get harder for him to shovel the excrement after the GOP takes over the house and starts investigating him.

The loss of Obamacare in the courts was a massive setback for Comrade Obama. Obamacare was supposed to be the lever he used to create his socialist utopia. He will never get a new Obamacare through the house. And without socialized health care he will lose control of the mob.

Great........You get fired from your job for being incompetent, and your boss rehires you at a higher salary and position as a consultant.

You can't make this stuff up!

Speaking of Gibbs. The far left can’t stand him either. I was lurking at DU and came upon a thread entitled, ‘Am I the only one who wants to *itchslap Gibbs?’. All the DUers piled on an agreed how much they wanted to slap the swarmy, gaseous Gibbs, and then the thread got locked. Reason: *itchslapped is an “insensitive” term.

Who knew?

Obama has to retread or rotate recent losers into staff openings because normal people won't work for him....only incompentents, gays, idiots, freaks and commies.....sometimes all these wrapped up into one single body.

It appears that Zero has found a superior group of Losers.

They are deleting posts and locking threads like crazy over there the past month. I take screenshots then read it because sometimes by the time you read it all, it’s gone. No dissing of the Messiah allowed over there.

I hear you. My impression, however, is that it’s become impossible for Skinner & Co. to block or delete all criticism of Obama. Since he caved on taxes for the ‘rich’ DU outrage has mushroomed out of control, and they can’t put that genie back into the lamp. It was news to me, however, that for the most part DUers despise Gibbs also. There’s just a level of swarmyness that transcends party lines, I guess. ;)

I don't think they should worry. They'll find work elsewhere:

Phloufffie is the guy behind these stupid narcissistic speeches. I-I-I-Me-Me-Me-my-my-my. He probably taught His Oneness to pronounce corpsman "corpse man."

Bring it on. I love the hare-brained Ivy League.
