Meet the Next White House Chief Of Staff: Mr. Denis McDonough

Meet the Next White House Chief of Staff

President Obama today tapped Denis McDonough to serve as his Chief of Staff and lead the team at the White House.

 

McDonough, 43, was previously the Deputy National Security Advisor. He began his career as a staffer on Capitol Hill — where he served in both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. In the White House, he previously served as the head of strategic communications for the National Security Council and as the NSS chief of staff.

 

“Denis has played a key role in every major national security decision of my presidency,” the President said, “from ending the war in Iraq to winding down the war in Afghanistan; from our response to natural disasters around the world like Haiti and the tsunami in Japan to the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ to countless crises in between, day and night — and that includes many nights. I’ve actually begun to think that Denis likes pulling all-nighters. The truth is nobody out-works Denis McDonough.”

 

The two were joined by the outgoing chief of staff — Jack Lew — who President Obama has appointed to serve as Secretary of the Treasury Department.

 

“As I said earlier this month, I could not be more grateful to Jack Lew for his amazing service, first as our OMB Director, then at the State Department, and ultimately as my Chief of Staff,” the President said.

Inauguration Weekend: On Saturday, Americans across the country took part in the National Day of Service, a project started four years ago to honor the life and legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The First Family kicked off the weekend at Burrville Elementary School in Washington, D.C. where they worked on school improvements. Watch the President and First Lady speak at the service event here.

Inauguration Day: On Monday, President Obama delivered hisInaugural Address to the country and was publicly sworn in for a second term.

President Obama said, “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together.”

Fireside Hangouts: On Thursday, Vice President Biden took part in the latest “Fireside Hangout” hosted by Google. The Vice President outlined the Administration’s plan to protect our communities from gun violence, while answering questions from participants.

White and Cordray Nominated: On Thursday, President Obama nominated Mary Jo White for head of the Securities and Exchange Commission and called for Richard Cordray to continue as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Both can play pivotal roles in the financial sector as White will be asked to keep Wall Street and banks accountable, while Cordray will oversee the laws that protect everyday Americans.

“These are people with proven track records,” said President Obama. “They are going to look out for the American people, for American consumers, and make sure that our marketplace works better — more transparently, more efficiently, more effectively.”

Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco Talks About His Inspiration

 

Most of America was introduced to Richard Blanco on Monday when he stepped to the podium at the U.S. Capitol to read “One Today,” the poem he had written to celebrate the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. Blanco, the gay son of Cuban exiles, is the fifth person to be chosen to write an inaugural poem, and the youngest person to be given that honor. (Previous inaugural poets include Robert Frost and Maya Angelou.) In the video below, Blanco talks about his desire to create a poem of unity and love, as he believes the occasion demanded.

From The Huffington Post:

 

President Barack Obama is moving at a historic pace to try to diversify the nation’s federal judiciary: Nearly three of every four people he has gotten confirmed to the federal bench are women or minorities. He is the first president who hasn’t selected a majority of white males for lifetime judgeship’s.

 

More than 70 percent of Obama’s confirmed judicial nominees during his first two years were “non-traditional,” or nominees who were not white males. That far exceeds the percentages in the two-term administrations of Bill Clinton (48.1 percent) and George W. Bush (32.9 percent), according to Sheldon Goldman, author of the authoritative book “Picking Federal Judges.”

 

“It is an absolutely remarkable diversity achievement,” said Goldman, a political science professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, who is only counting judges once, even if they fit more than one category.

 

More of this piece found at The Huffington Post

 

 

I am sick & tired of listening to morons, idiots and dumbasses talk in “expert pundit” mode, on issues they have not a clue about. Offering up opinions and suggestions for Barack Hussein Obama…and these “expert pundits” have accomplished jack shit.

 

What on earth makes a person think they are qualified to offer Barack advice on how to BE President Of The United States Of America?

 

Unless YOU HAVE BEEN The President.

 

Of Anything.

 

This is why I pay very little attention to empty air head dumbass self important “expert pundits”. Those that can….do.

Those that can’t…..commentate.

 

Barack Hussein Obama is indeed the “Teflon Don” of politics. The Bull Feces just does not stick.
