Former Time magazine leftist-turned-VP Joe Biden flack Jay Carney has a new job.
Or a new title, anyway.
He’s replacing Robert Gibbs as White House press secretary.
President Obama has chosen former journalist Jay Carney to replace press secretary Robert Gibbs, a longtime loyalist, when he leaves the post in mid-February, according to a senior administration official.
The White House will also name two new deputy chiefs of staff: Nancy-Ann DeParle, director of the Office of Health Reform, and Alyssa Mastromonaco, White House director of scheduling and advance.
Carney, now the communications director for Vice President Biden, came to the White House in 2009 after a long career in journalism that included serving as Washington bureau chief of Time magazine.
Carney’s conservative-bashing credentials are solid.
Those on the right will remember Carney’s shameless attempt to blame Rush Limbaugh and conservative bloggers for spreading an ugly, empty rumor about Michelle Obama that was disseminated by Hillary Clinton supporter Larry Johnson.
