Unrequited love from White House to GOP hopefuls?

Washington (CNN) – The White House likes to shower praise on some of the Republican presidential hopefuls looking to take President Barack Obama's job in 2012.

In the end, it is love the would-be candidates could probably do without.

The words really aren't meant to be so kind, of course. They're subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) ways to jab the potential rivals and remind voters of likely weaknesses they may face.

Daley, Plouffe try to shift focus back to jobs

Washington (CNN) – White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley quietly expanded the Obama administration's outreach to the business community on Tuesday by appearing via videoconference at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's board meeting in Florida.

Daley's remarks on President Obama's efforts to create jobs and tout his competitiveness agenda came as another top White House aide, senior adviser David Plouffe, delivered closed-door remarks in Washington to the executive council of the AFL-CIO.

New White House chief of staff remains optimistic

Washington (CNN) - New White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley told a Democratic crowd Saturday that they have every reason to be confident in America, despite some rough years.

"There have been two tough years for our country. And in hard times, it's easy for people to lose faith, to wonder what the future holds," Daley said at the Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington. "But I think we have every reason to be confident, and I know this president feels that too."

Daley gets down to business

Washington (CNN) - As he drove to a Dunkin' Donuts in Nashville early on Election Day 2000, Bill Daley's reputation for being the calmest guy in the middle of a crisis was being severely put to the test.

It was 6:30 a.m., and Daley had just picked up Don Baer, a last-minute addition to Vice President Al Gore's campaign to help with communications strategy, at his hotel. They decided to get a cup of coffee on their way to Gore's campaign office to begin fueling up for what could be a long night of waiting for election returns.

Daley moving quickly to take power at White House

WASHINGTON (CNN) - New White House Chief of Staff William Daley will be on the job before the State of the Union, according to senior administration officials, and there are early signs he also will be bringing in some of his own senior aides.
The decision is leaving some current White House staffers feeling uneasy about where they will fit in the flow chart.

Several Democratic sources said Daley is planning to bring along to the White House at least some close allies, people who date back to his time as commerce secretary during the Clinton administration as well as other stops in his impressive resume.

Liberal groups skeptical of Daley

(CNN) - Weighing in on President Obama's choice for chief of staff, the progressive organization MoveOn.org criticized William Daley for his close ties to "big banks and big business."

"With Wall Street reporting record profits while middle class Americans continue to struggle in a deep recession, the announcement that William Daley, who has close ties to Big Banks and Big Business, will now lead the White House staff is troubling and sends the wrong message to the American people," Justin Ruben, executive director of MoveOn.org said in a statement.
