Skip to comments.Gibbs is Resigning as White House Press Secretary
Posted on 01/05/2011 8:01:04 AM PST by Jess Kitting
WASHINGTON Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary and one of the most visible and forceful advocates for President Barack Obama, is quitting his job to become an outside political adviser. The change is among the many expected in the coming days as Obama redefines his leadership team to get ready for a re-election bid and a more powerful Republican Party. Gibbs said he would be leaving the White House by early February. The top contenders to replace him are two of his deputies, Bill Burton and Josh Earnest, and Jay Carney, who is the press secretary to Vice President Joe Biden.
The move allows Gibbs to leave the grinding pace of the press secretary's job, make money giving speeches and spend more time with his family. But it also will change the dynamic of the White House, particularly combined with the coming departure of senior adviser David Axelrod, who, like Gibbs, has been at Obama's side for his entire presidential run.

I really doubt that conscience moved in....
How does one post to “Breaking News”?
Bye-bye Baghdad Bob!
Emanuel, Axelrod and now Gibbs. Their mission has been accomplished within two years to make America less important in the New World Order.
Now that they have accomplished their mission, Obama will take the center of the road approach and blame everything on the Pub’s for the next two years. Two years of him preparing for the 2012 election. His appointments will be “moderates” from here on out. IMO
He believed every word uttered he is a moron’s moron.
The move allows Gibbs to leave the grinding pace of the press secretary's job, make money giving speeches and spend more time with his family.
From what I understand, Gibbs will be considering job offers with CNN, MSNBC, and ABC's "The View".
"Err, ah, ummm, ohhhh-ahh, errrrr, mmmmm, uhhnnn, errrrr, ummm......."
very sad news......I trust he will be replaced by another buffoon
Bagdad Bob Gibbs will not be missed.
Katie Communist may be looking for a job soon.

You could try addressing a response in this thread to Admin Moderator asking for it to be added to Breaking News.
