Obama: Gibbs to ‘Retool’ for 2012

President Obama has issued a statement on the departure of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs: “For the last six years, Robert has been a close friend, one of my closest advisers and an effective advocate from the podium for what this administration has been doing to move America forward. I think it’s natural for him to want to step back, reflect and retool.  That brings up some challenges and opportunities for the White House – but it doesn’t change the important role that Robert will continue to play on our team.”
