Reggie Love, Obama ‘body man,’ to leave White House by year’s end
Washington Post ^ | November 9, 2011 | Anne E. Kornblut

Posted on 11/09/2011 8:44:56 PM PST by Seizethecarp

Reggie Love, a key member of the Obama entourage, is planning to leave the White House by the end of the year, people close to the administration said.

Love, 30, is a popular, gregarious figure in the White House. A onetime forward for the Duke Blue Devils basketball team, Love started out as a staff assistant in Obama’s Senate office after college, rising to become his personal assistant, known as the “body man.”

Love’s exit comes at a time of transition for the administration: several longtime advisers have left over the last year, in keeping with the time-honored tradition that close aides do not abandon the president immediately before an election. But Love’s position may be among the most difficult for Obama to fill.

Axe shaft knows that Reggie Love’s Homosexual Relationship
with Obama is just as Dangerous as Obama’s Love Affair with
Trinity Church’s Choir Director who maintained his long term Homosexual
Relationship with Obama until he was assanitated just prior to
Obama Husein’s Election to CMOOTUS!

Quite seriously, I see this like a story about a minor criminal who is somehow caught by the police because of some mishap involving an erection (we've all seen these bizarre stories). The journalist is apt to mention hard time, or a stiff sentence, or other such "subtle" puns might make it into print.

When the WaPo talks about Obama filling Love's position, I think they are letting people know that the truth is out there.

I love the media.. It is a “time honored tradition” that all the rats jump off a perfectly good ship that will be floating well more than 4 years in the future. Really, George Orwell couldnt make this stuff up.

Well, there was a online radio broadcast out of Chicago last night that basically did a “what’s good for the goose” chat. Since the news media feels free to talk unconfirmed trash about Republicans with bizarre erroneous reports, why not talk about ALL the rumored skeletons rattling around in Bam-Bam’s: Reggie Love, that Kumar guy (and what happened to his “job”), the guy in the limo with Bam-Bam and crack, a dead choir director...

Really? Let’s just stick to him being a split personality Doofus-Marxist. We can win the election on that without the gay/birther angle. This guy gives us so many avenues of attack, why pick out the ones the left has laid traps for already. He is terrible at his job and needs to be fired. If he was Zulu from Star Trek gay, and he was at least a capitalist and proud American I could put up with him having orgies in the White House. mLet’s get the piety out of politics.

Reggie needs to write a “tell all” book about his stay at the WH and his relationship with Obama. Bet the book would be a best seller in no time.

Gotta get Reggie out of the Red House before Manchelle gets pregnant in the hopes for a sympathy vote in 2012.

(Don’t worry...Little Stevie Dunham will visit Man’s Country in Chicago frequently after Reggie leaves...he’ll find a new old guy there....)

Well Donald Young could do it, but he isn’t around anymore. I think Barry’s mad at Larry Sinclair for running his mouth. Maybe Michael Signator will take the job and if not, he will find some guy with a nice little fanny that he fancies.

One of a kind love affair is
The kind of love that you read about in a fairy tale
Like the sun that shines on a rainy day
It’s a cloud of love
One of a kind love affair is
When your down is up, when your up is down
But love stays around,
And when you know you’re right
But you got to make a little sacrifice
You make it for love
Who-oh-oh-oh, yeah

I never thought about today would come
When he would leave without good-bye, yes, sir
He wrote a line or two upon the wall
Said, I’m leaving you, know I love you too
I can’t stay with you
And this very day
I could never say a discouraging word
‘Cause I love you
Who-oh-oh-oh, yes, siree, now

0h0m0 must be already "filled." Reggie must be already exhausted. The Resident is very demanding!

New lover on the way?

A new lover is already IN the way.

I think I know who the new lover is. He’s the experienced PA defensive coordinator to run the WH gym and "handle" the Resident 10-year old.

You heard here first!

LJ, how come this isn't pinged to your h0m0 agenda ping list?

From the article:

Obama has described Love as..... a gatekeeper .... Obama once described him as a “little brother."

Reggie is the gatekeeper all right...he had to stand TALL to guard that wide-open gate!

I wonder what he meant by "little brother?" IT couldn't be that little, otherwise Reggie wouldn't have been "filling this position" that LONG.

Hmmm...read the article. Still trying to figure out what a “body man” is.

Double entrendre. 1) The guy who carries his bags when he travels, runs his errands, etc. 2) Boyfriend.

I think the press has been using the term because they had gotten used to speaking about Huma Abadin as Hillary's body woman. Same double entrendre. They travel everywhere together, or at least they did until Hillary decided that with Obama tanking she might have to run earlier than she had expected, so she had Huma married off to Wiener. Bill Clinton, always obliging, presided at the wedding.

Unfortunately for Hillary, the Wiener beard didn't work out quite as smoothly as she expected. It remains to be seen whether they find a beard for Reggie, or we get another case of Arkancide, like with that guy who cleaned up Hussein's passport records at the State Department, or his two gay boyfriends in the Chicago church choir. Stay tuned.
