WASHINGTON (CNN) - White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin will be leaving his job this month, according to White House spokesperson Dana Perino.
Perino says Hagin's last day will be July 20th.
"The President said that he thanks Joe for his service to the White House, that Joe's been a loyal friend, and that he is excited about the next chapter in Joe's life," said Perino.
Hagin sent an email to friends this morning, announcing he is leaving to take a private sector job.
Hagin, an Ohio native, has been with President Bush since the 2000 campaign.
Combined with experience during the first Bush presidency, Hagin has served 14 years in the White House.
Hagin was a behind-the-scenes player, who had a huge role in the post 9/11 reorganization of the U-S government and how terrorist responses would be reformed.
beautiful, what a nice picture, with carl rove... We shall see them in jail for all the crimes they haev comiited. as for this guy, exxon mobil perhaps??, haliburton, anyone?
Today, in a related story, George Bush and the rest of the American public were quoted as saying "Joe Who?"
See.. We have a JohnRoss talking about National anthem in Denver.
What a goat head?
JohnRoss should get with the Bushies and may be replace some of these fleeing rats.
You too –Just saying– You should go hang in Bushes Crawford home.
Good riddance. One less fat old white neo-con screwing our country up with fascistic ideas like the Department of Homeland Defense.
do you need a life raft and how many more should i expect to jump ship?
Can't wait for his book! It oughta make McClellan's book look like a walk in the park for the Bushes. Hey, Joe, need a ghostwriter?
The dance has ended and the party is over. On to the next gala.
Why leave now when there's only 5 1/2 months left? He probably found some job opening that won't be available in January.
A better question – is Bush going to replace him? Who would START a job with only 5 1/2 months to go?
I wonder if Karl Rove will discuss with Sean ..............TELL ALL BOOK !!!
Wow. Looks like several folks want to get away from Bush. Can't say I blame them.
I'm sorry, PRAETORIAN, FT. MYERS, but I can't give kudos to anyone in Bush's administration. Can Bush and Cheney take an early leave? It's for sure the ole Ship of State can't flounder any worse.
Karl Rvoe got him a job at Fox News!
write a book!we'd like to know what REALLY goes on in this criminal administration.
Why is this on he ticker CNN!!??!! The guy knows his boss's tenure is about to be over, and he found a new job. Big Whoop!!!
Amazing how those two red blooded americans helped orchestrate the fall of America and get to walk off into the sunset because of their race & connection's... They ripped their own peoples lives apart that voted for them out of sheer fabricated patriotism!
Book in the works?!
JonRoss wrote "Why does CNN not have a single story or banner about the singing of the "wrong" national anthem at the DNC meeting in Denver this week ? Nothing anywhere on any CNN site. It is every where else. Especially on non DNC controled outlets.:
This happened preceding the state of the city address, not a DNC meeting. Just thought you should know the facts before you go "all off" on the Democrats.
nice picture...are they texting to each other and giggling?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA - THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE!
The bald headed, double-chinned doublemint twins addicted to their blackberries. What an attractive pair!
In a sense, it looks like Berlin in 1945 people wanting to sneak out before the fall and eviction. This Reich is over in 201 days, then the decades of clean up begins. (Providing Bush's seperated conjoined twin isn't elected otherwise we well be doomed to repeat history, even if it is just days ago.)
Another one Bites the Dust!!! Things that make you go Hummmm.
When's his book comming out?
Are they texting each other?
