Can you blame him?
President Barack Obama made a surprise appearance (Friday) to announce his chief spokesman Jay Carney is leaving his post behind the podium, to be replaced next month by Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
Obama called Carney one of his closest advisers and friends at the White House in remarks to the press in the White House briefing room.
“In April, Jay came to me in the Oval Office and said that he was thinking of moving on, and I was not thrilled, to say the least,” he said. “But Jay has had to wrestle with this decision for quite some time.”
… Better to get out of their with what’s left of his soul:
“I will continue to rely on him as a friend and an adviser after he leaves to spend as much of his summer as he can with his kids before he decides what’s next for him,” he added. “Whatever it is, I know he’s going to be outstanding at it.”
Carney, who has served as press secretary for over three years, called holding the job “an honor and a joy for me.”
… The Obama cleaning of the house continues. Who’s next?

Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher crashed on the scene in 2008 when a chance run-in with then candidate Barack Obama allowed Joe to confront the soon-to-be president on his tax-and-spend Socialist philosophy. It was then, in a moment of clarity, Barack Obama let slip his real agenda; “I just want to spread some of that wealth around…” In an effort to inform the public Joe created the Joe for America web site, where you can find commentary, videos and ideas covering a wide array of topics from leading thinkers.
