Gibbs Says He's Leaving White House

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says he is resigning his job as the president's chief spokesman.

Gibbs is leaving to become an outside political adviser to Obama and to give speeches in the private sector.

The change is to take effect in early February. No replacement has been immediately named.

The move comes as Obama ushers in a broad shake up of his senior leadership, heading toward his own likely re-election bid in 2012.

Gibbs graduated from North Carolina State University in 1993.

    President Bush went through four press secretaries during his administration. Harry Truman had five. The position is stressful and doesn’t leave a lot of time for a personal life.

    Hey Gibbs, why don`t you hang in there until 2012? Then you and the rest of the liars in the White House can ride the same bus (Express) out of town.

    The most indictments from a presidency in US history were issued to members of the Reagan administration.
