Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama announced Monday that White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley is stepping down and will be replaced by Office of Management and Budget Director Jack Lew.
Two senior Obama aides told CNN that Daley will stay in his job through January, including the State of the Union address.
Hardly a surprise.... Another smart guy that sees the writing on the wall. He's probably had enough of Obama and all the elite know-nothings.
BTW, didn't he have a full head of hair when he took the job a year ago? hahahaha....
Jumping ship. . . Wonder where Bill will be headed.
Gee... that didn't take long....
Good, this guy was just another Chicago shill for the 1%, he belongs in a Republican administration. He also looked like a muppet.
This would be breaking news if Daley didn't finish out the term.
[ Didn't a Bill Daily play "Roger" on "I Dream of Jeannie" ]
Just the first of many rats leaving the sinking ship.
The rest of the chicago mafia thugs need to go.
I think Obama let him go so he had more time to head back to Chicago and find Obama a place to stay next January???
I can hardly wait for all the tell all books from these people. Hopefully the truth comes out BEFORE the election.
Another corrupted politician washes away...
Wow, what an assumption by the POTUS! He must think his re-election is a cinch! I don't think he will be around to use the new guy he appointed.
Must be a senate seat opening up that he wants to run for.
@Rudy, yep. that was one of my favorite programs growing up. Used to watch every program waiting to see if they would show barbara eden's belly button.
I guess the reports of not being able to work with Obama and/or his staff are true. It is no wonder Congress can't work with him either.
Why would Daly quit now before the November election?
Even more comical is that Obama has a budget director.
this was announced a cpl months ago. nothing new.
Great–the only guy in the entire Obama administration with a brain, and he decides to leave. Bill Daley made sure that Osama bin Laden was killed, despite the objections of Barack Obama. Daley made it such that Obama had no choice but to authorize it, as it was all but a "done deal" by the time Obama even knew of the plan, and Daley told Obama he had no choice but to go along, or risk looking like he was soft on terrorism. Daley probably got sick of all of the incompetence within the administration, and will certainly land on his feet somewhere in the financial industry.
Bad and uneducated mistake to begin with. He belongs in a hedge fund on Wall Street.
He was temporary anyway. Would CNN please ask him why he's leaving ?
Journalism , News .
Good grief, why can't Obama keep staff members?
He did so much good while he was there we will miss him (sarcasm)
you just wait obama will be reelected against this boatload of gop losers. dems will have the last laugh
He probaly refused to play "lurch" at the obama's halloween party.
The GOP is destroying any of their own that worked with Obama, no wonder he's leaving with "friends" like those
Daley was always a temp solution since Rahm left early
