Some of President Obamas closest advisers are rethinking their plans to leave the White House, to help him regain his political standing and to avoid perceptions that staff members are either escaping or being forced out in a time of duress. Enlarge This Image Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images
Rob Nabors, a deputy chief of staff in the White House, is said to be among those rethinking their plans to leave their posts. Related

Among them are Alyssa Mastromonaco and Rob Nabors, both deputies to the White House chief of staff, Denis R. McDonough. Ms. Mastromonaco and Mr. Nabors have been with Mr. Obama from the beginning of his presidency, and Ms. Mastromonaco since the start of his Senate career. Both had wanted to leave at the end of the year but have decided to stay indefinitely, officials said.
Others who have indicated that they have put off their departures include the White House counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, and Gene B. Sperling, who as director of the National Economic Council is Mr. Obamas chief economic adviser. Jeanne Lambrew, an architect of the Affordable Care Act, had also been hoping to leave but might remain for months more, according to officials familiar with her thinking.
Controversy over the health care law has helped drive Mr. Obamas approval ratings to new lows, a trend that the White House is scrambling to reverse.
Everybody is sensitive to making sure that you dont put the president in a position where he doesnt have a team, said one official, who like others interviewed declined to be identified while discussing personnel issues that are fraught with political overtones.

The Co-Dependency (Faux) Presidency.
How much taxpayer money is being given as a “bonus” to these creeps to stay on with Obama so as not to embarrass his lowness?
I’m guessing they all got envelopes with incriminating pictures and documents.
Sure. Just like the flood of tell-all books from former Clinton staffers. Expect the silence of an open grave from these damaged souls.
Podesta threatened to beat the sh** out of them and bury them in Ft. Marcy Park.
I wonder if it’s because they just don’t want to have to sign on to the ObamaCare scam.
Barack Obama isn't even a key player in his own administration. ROFL.
I looks like their visions of sugar plumbs have turned into lumps of coal. In this case a lump of coal is like a wooden cross to a vampire.
Michael Corleone: Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in.

I don’t wanna enlarge ANY image of O staffers.
Obama just reminded them that on leaving the White House they would be subject to Obamacare.
How many years will it take to clean up after this guy? Could take years.
I worked in a shop with a liberal owner who tried the team management thing. Everybody did their own thing and nothing productive got done till the owner’s daddy stepped in and fired about two thirds of the employees.
I kept my job because daddy asked me if I had any ideas for the business. I told him that I didn’t know anything about running a business but I can follow orders and I know how to run my machines. He said “I think we’ll get along just fine and I’ll see you tomorrow morning”
LOL. Lucky you!
Rats on the Titanic are concerned about their resumes!
Looks like there could be death panels for the staff too.
Well, those same aides have done such a GREAT job getting Zero to this point...
Those wanting to leave maybe don’t want to go out looking like they contributed to the problem. Who knows what these goofs think (outside of always wanting to grow government and reduce the private sector).
A well known question: “How long can you tread water?”
The company that made Skippy peanut butter back in the 70s tried that “team” work crap. Every team had at least one person who wouldn’t hit a lick at a snake.
So all the delusional leftists who helped Bath House run the USA into the ditch are staying on?! Good. Its analogous to the captain and crew going down with the ship. Let them all double down on failure.
If Bambi was a competent leader he would have already sacked their butts for the parade of screw-ups that have been his first term.
You’re awesome. I will try to give you better freeper treatment in the future. ;)
IF...IF, I can just remember to attach this great story to you! LOL!
Like any of these people know how to do anything in the private sector. I guess they could get gigs in academe or maybe Leftist non-profits.
IF baraq was a competent leader he would have surrounded himself with other competent people and diligent self starters. Instead he has surrounded himself with a bunch of angry feminists and a bunch of pajama boys who couldn’t find their collective asses with both hands, a flash light and a road map.
