Robert Gibbs, (AFP) – President Barack Obama Robert Gibbs said Wednesday he would resign to fight against the corner of his boss outside the White House “bubble” in a “replacement equipment” for the administration . The personnel reshuffle came as Barack Obama wants to meet the challenge posed by the new Republican-led House of Representatives, which took office Wednesday, and made moves to clear his reelection crank 2012.
Gibbs, who worked for Obama since before he was a senator, is president of the most visible public advocate, and plays a role in the White House that is wider than the traditional portfolio press spokesman.
“I think the last two years have been extraordinary to watch, amazing to be part of. I work with a president that I love and respect,” Gibbs said, adding that he will continue to advise Obama outside the White House.
Gibbs, a clever political tactician with sometimes combative style information, will deliver speeches and possibly play a role paid on election to Obama, as he continues to promote the president’s agenda.
“I have a pretty unique relationship with him … You go … nearly two years on the road with someone you get to know them pretty well, and you get to know how they think. ”
In a statement, Mr. Obama described Gibbs as a close friend, one of his closest advisers and an effective advocate of the administration.
“I think it’s natural for him to want to step back, reflect and retool This leads to some challenges and opportunities for the White House -?. But it does not change the important role that Robert will continue to play our team. ”

“He did a good administration, and I think it will make a good administration, to have people like David Plouffe and others come in an administration that have not been here,” Gibbs said.
“We must admit that there is a bubble here, to some extent.”
Obama should appoint a new leader of his National Economic Council on Friday to replace Lawrence Summers, who left the administration after two years to revive the depressed economy of the United States.
He will also make further announcements on his economic team before the end of the week.
A flurry of reports has suggested that Gene Sperling, an official in the Clinton era economic already working in the administration, can replace summers.

Gibbs was next to Obama’s former state legislator from Illinois ran for Senate in 2004, the beginning of a meteoric rise to power.
Speech in the hall of the White House, Gibbs seems to relish sparring with reporters and skewering Republican foes of Obama, but it also has a seat at the table in sensitive areas of internal administration deliberations.
Goalkeeper former college soccer, Gibbs is a great sports fan and sequins briefings with sports metaphors, and once had to don a jersey ice hockey at the camera after losing a bet Olympic with its counterpart in Ottawa.
