Gibbs Out

Yesterday, President Obama told reporters that, “My hope is that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell will realize that there will be plenty of time to campaign for 2012 in 2012.” Yet this morning the White House announced that press secretary Robert Gibbs would be leaving, and according to the New York Times account, “he will step down and become an outside political adviser to the president and his re-election campaign.”
