    Bill Daley tells ABC News that he resigned last week as chief of staff, as first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
    Senior administration officials confirm that Jacob “Jack” Lew, the current director of the Office of Management and Budget, will be the new chief of staff.
    Daley was brought in to replace Rahm Emanuel, but in November his role was “changed,” with more power given to senior adviser Pete Rouse. At the time White House officials insisted the move was in no way a demotion, but it certainly wasn’t a vote of confidence.

    A former vice chairman at JPMorgan Chase, Daley was heralded as having skills that could help President Obama, namely ties to the business community, and an ability to work with Republicans as seen during his days as President Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Commerce. Those relationships have remained rocky, and Daley vented about some of his frustrations in an interview at the end of October with Politico’s Roger Simon. “It’s been a brutal three years,” Daley said. “It’s been a very, very difficult three years, an incredible three years. And we are doing all this under the overhang of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. F-k! It wasn’t like all this was happening in good times.”.


    Did yall know Jack Lew was a Former BANKER? Sure Obama cares about those Wall Street protesters sure he does. Do yall know what democrats are? THEYRE HYPOCRITES! So why those OWS protesters stand up for Democrats? Just like Nancy Pelosi spent over $100,000 a night hotel room in Hawaii. You see why Cops dont stand with them an make arrests? Cops dont stand with the Democrats. Cops stand with Republicans. They may be the 99% but they stand with Republicans. Wonder why Tea Party people have ZERO ARRESTS? Cause cops stand with those people.
