The current White House Insider report concentrates on the Chief of Staff, Bill Daley, challenging Valerie Jarrett’s authority in the White House. The implications are that Daley is Chicago’s tough guy trying to rein in an out of control Jarrett and Obama. Interesting reading.
Excerpt: All new revelations from our D.C. Insider of an Obama White House in chaos, as Bill Daley does battle with Valerie Jarrett for control of the West Wing.
But let’s stick with what happened a few weeks back in the White House that has people talking, and the donors pushing the big concerned button once again.
Now I know I told you that there was a bit of a control fight between Daley and Jarrett, right? I know it’s been a while but I seem to recall that. Well this fight has broke out into all out war between these two. And Jarrett is getting her ass kicked. That’s not to say she won’t claw her way back, she’s got the confidence of the First Lady and the president…but those two are learning they aren’t calling the shots anymore. Too much at stake to allow those two elitist morons to just -expletive- it up.
(Interrupts) What do you mean by that. Sorry to break in there, but please explain what you mean?
A: What I mean is that Barack and Michelle Obama…it was communicated to them in no uncertain terms that they are to follow directions. Every president, as powerful as that position is, can have their chain jerked when a situation requires. That chain has been jerked very hard this past month. Very hard. I don’t want to go into that right now though. I want to tell you about Jarrett and Daley. That story is going to legitimize this with the ones who I want to know. So I’m going back to that.
Daley has quietly been asserting himself in Obama’s White House. They may not like it, but they don’t have a choice. Daley is Chicago, right? It goes back there. All of it. We got you Mr. President.
