It is hard when you have been the executive, like Daley was for so many years, to all of a sudden take orders. I’m guessing it is hard for Daley to be a follower?

You know your operation is really messed up when one of the Chicago Daleys doesn’t want any part of it anymore.

I wouldn’t read too much into it at this point. In every administration, people come and go all the time. If there’s anything negative about this situation, it will be released to the press late on a Friday night.

Last October, Dailey said he was going to stay through the upcoming election. I wonder what changed his mind?

I agree. He being from Chicago and all, he probably got the charter to conjure up the dead votes for November. He needs to get an early start...

Not only is Daley not used to taking orders, but from what I gather his advice was never heeded, he was always in a very small minority position among the top WH staff. On the other hand, he could be going back to Chicago to prepare for a challenge to the election.

IIRC, there was a thread here at FR last fall about this coming, but I thought he was planning on going sometime much lter this year.

As much as I hate to pay money for a hardcover book, I sure would like to read about the behind the scenes Michelle who thinks she is Queen to go along with her King.

I think he sees the writing on the wall and knows there is no future for him in the Obama Administration because there is no future Obama Administration.

Are you folks nuts??? Does no one see that the Democrat Party wants to dump Obama like a bad habit? Daley was supposed to be the saviour of this administration. Of course, dealing with the two would be dictators and destroyers of the American economy and republic, Michelle “The America Hater Witch” Obama and her “Girlie Boy”, no religion “dirt bag” husband, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, “The Muslim Brotherhood” adoree and wild worshiper of Reverand, “Black Racist” Jeremiah Wright is no easy task.

No need to comment further!!!! If any American casts his or her vote for Obama, I can assure you they are not Americans!!!!

A little more at the link now, including the following:
Daley's job as day-to-day manager of the White House operation had already been changing - if not diminishing - as senior Obama aide Pete Rouse took over more of those duties in November. Yet Daley was not expected to leave the job and return to Chicago, where his family has long held a political dynasty, until after the November presidential election.

More importantly is who is replacing Daley.

Daley is to be replaced by Jacob Lew, now the White House budget director. The change will be effective at the end of the month.

Jacob Lew, is a former hedge fund manager who also worked with Citigroup (from whom he received a mammoth payout before he left in 2009).

Yet another prediction from Ulsterman’s “White House Insider” comes true! And right on schedule!

Daley was apparently sent in by the Democrat establishment (financial backers) to convince Omoslem to stop flaunting his Marxism, because it was “ruining the Democrat brand.”

But according to the Insider, Omoslem wouldn’t even listen and “They will withdraw Daley very soon.”

It’s one thing to be a dirty communist moslem bent on destroying the USA. It’s quite another to blatantly say that with your every speech (e.g. Osawatomie, Kansas “I’m a Commie” speech).

Worthless? I wonder how much of a pension he's going to get for this temporary gig.

The story I remember most about Daley’s tenure serving Hussein was when the Kenyan Commie got chewed out publicly and in front of the media by Bibi Netanyahu.

One report I saw (and the entire episode was underplayed by the Hussein-worshipping media) said that Hussein was so infuriated with Daley for allowing the public photo op and smackdown by Bibi that he was SCREAMING at him in an office, and the ruckus was heard down the halls of the building.

LOL.

I hope Daley has enough sense to come clean about the innter workings of the Hussein regime. But like most Demonrats he will probably sit on the info.

*****************

My guess:

Daley was never an insider like Rahm who could neutralize to some extent the role of the “Unofficial Policy Chief of Staff” Valerie Jarett. Jarett would just run all over someone like Daley. Who would want to put up with that?

I’m guessing it is hard for Daley to be a follower?

Here's what I really believe:

Certainly no orders from Jarrett and the Oooogly One! 0b0z0 wants to smoke, play hoops, play golf, watch ESPN, have quality Reggie time and no crappy POTUS responsibilities. The broads, if I could call them that as a compliment, are holding the White Doma and keeping the puppet in check lest he runs...away that is!

Jarrett IS ruling the country. She relays Soros' orders to 0b0z0. Daley must have tried to moderate The Kenyan Marxist but to no avail

The rogue bastard is executing orders and appointments like there's no tomorrow...Maybe the Marxist goons and their meal ticket, Soros, realize there is no tomorrow, i.e., a second term!

We're gonna have to dismantle a lot if a Conservative is elected POTUS. That wouldn't be nearly enough unless we triple the balls in the Congress! Kinda tall order, I dare say!

Another Freeper pointed out that Daley is probably needed for this election. He’s a past master of voter fraud, and was the lawyer who led the Al Gore attempt to kidnap the election and prevent Bush from taking office.

Remember what the Ulsterman said about Daley, he was put there to sort of keep an eye on things and try to keep the lid on Jarrett etc. I think the UM also said (but I can’t remember for sure) that Daley would be leaving in a bit.
