White House officers? income White House has just released the list of its officers and their salary in last week, with the highest income of $ 172 thousand a year. The salary depends on their position which they are taken. Moreover, the officers working at White House can be paid $ 82.7 thousand a year. However, the lowest fulltime officers’ income is less than $ 38 thousand. President Barack Obama is paid the highest salary, said finance advisors In fact, 469 officers were paid over $ 38 million in last year by White House, and 23 others got the highest income of $ 172 thousand. Although their salary is quite high, it is lower than two part time officers- Micheal Hash and Timothy Love. Their income is $ 179.7 thousand in 2009. The following list is the $ 172 thousand salary of some White House’ officials: David Axelrod – Senior Advisor who helps president implement politic strategy Melody C.

White House delays key element of health care law Email this Story Jul 3, 6:37 AM (ET) By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR (AP) In this June 7, 2009, file photo, senior advisers Valerie Jarret and David Axelrod, right,... Full Image WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's health care law, hailed as his most significant legislative achievement, seems to be losing much of its sweep. On Tuesday, the administration unexpectedly announced a one-year delay, until after the 2014 elections, in a central requirement of the law that medium and large companies provide coverage for their workers or face fines. Separately, opposition in the states from Republican Governors and legislators has steadily undermined a Medicaid expansion that had been expected to provide coverage to some 15 million low-income people. Tuesday's move - which caught administration allies and adversaries by surprise - sacrificed timely implementation of Obama's signature legislation but might help Democrats politically by blunting an election-year l ...

This comes from the American Thinker.Think about what Axelrod lied about.four of our kids dead, DEAD and he told this to Chris Wallace. Panetta and Gen. Dempsey said that the told Owebama in a regular sceduled mtg of the attack and never heard from Owebama again, WHILE UNDER OATH. On February 19, 2013, NBC and MSNBC announced that they hired President Barack Obama's senior strategist David Axelrod as a "senior political analyst" to appear exclusively on their networks. Given that both NBC and MSNBC claim to be news organizations, perhaps it will occur to them to ask Axelrod what the factual basis was for statements he made on November 4, 2012 (two days before the Presidential election) to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. Axelrod was asked about the attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. Axelrod stated: [I]mmediately when word of the attack came, the president was meeting with his top national security folks. He was talking to them well into the night. He was in touch with th ...
Interesting. NEW YORK (AP) - David Axelrod, former strategist and aide to President Barack Obama, has landed a new job at NBC News. The network said Tuesday that Axelrod is joining as a senior political analyst. He'll contribute to broadcasts on both NBC News and the cable network MSNBC. Axelrod helped run Obama's successful campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and worked as an adviser to the president during his first term. The former political writer and columnist for the Chicago Tribune started his own political and media consulting firm in 1984. NBC already employs Steve Schmidt, a top adviser to Obama's 2008 opponent John Mccain, as an analyst.

President Barack Obama is launching his second inaugural with a service project at a Washington area school. The President, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha, are at Burrville Elementary helping spruce up the school by picking up used condoms, crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia. The cost of this presidential visit, along with the cost of security personal, could have employed a larger school custodial staff and paid wages supporting all their families for up to 7 years. But, this is what Obama's boss, David Axelrod had planned for the First Family. So touchy-feely don't you think?
No surprise that President Barack Obama is Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2012. And what a year it has been with all the lonely people to the far right and the new emerging majority of a diverse culture and demographically rich in moderate and liberal thinking. If you think otherwise, look at all the runners up. Obama was a no brainer for this award, given the United States elected its first two-term president of color. I recall when Samuel L. Jackson was talking with Bill Maher and other Hollywood friends that Obama had to prove he was the real deal by getting re-elected. Actually, it was Obama's cool team of political strategists led by 2008 front man David Axelrod and a ground game played by Jeremy Bird that built a new stronger Obama army. That came from help of all the lovely people including Hispanics who did not like Republican Mitt Romney telling them to take a hike and get their papers in the waning days of the campaign. Of course, Indiana, just like the deep South, proudly cast their elec ...

Republicans say deal can be done on U.S. "fiscal cliff" (Reuters) - A senior Republican senator voiced confidence on Sunday that U.S. lawmakers would forge a deal on the year-end "fiscal cliff," while a top aide to President Barack Obama signaled a willingness to compromise over raising tax rates on the rich. Republican Senator Bob Corker said increasing tax revenues from wealthier Americans would have to be part of the plan, but he stressed closing loopholes rather than raising top tax rates as many Democrats favor, provided spending is also tackled. "I am optimistic," Corker told "Fox News Sunday." "I think there is the basis for the deal. ... There is a way of getting there on the revenue side. The real question is: can we come to terms on the entitlement side?" Obama has invited congressional leaders to the White House on Friday to discuss the issue, with only 50 days left until the end of the year. Unless Congress acts first, $600 billion in tax hikes and automatic federal spending cuts would take ef ...
President Barack Obama's triumph was, in the first place, one of brilliant organizational execution built on the changing demographics of America. Obama never lost sight of his community organizing lessons, nor the harder ones of Chicago politics. His volunteers, looking at fewer numbers and less enthusiasm, turned themselves into a relentless machine. David Axelrod and David Plouffe kept the focus of resources on the battleground states while the Republicans, torn by a long primary war, were left behind vying for crucial electoral votes. They always predicted a one or two percent victory, and they achieved it. Obama's triumph was also one for the rising political bloc of Latinos and their younger generation of Dreamers, who asserted themselves as an indispensable force in coalition politics; a showing of labor's muscle in the Great Lakes Region and in turnout drives; a huge breakthrough for the long-isolated LGBT community; for a resurgent feminist community called back into action; and abov ...
Anatomy of a White House win: how Obama outmaneuvered Romney By JEFF MASON, Reuters November 8, 2012 9:31am 162 78 1 290 CHICAGO - On the day after the 2010 midterm election that swept Republicans into control of the House of Representatives and decreased Democrats' majority in the Senate, senior White House adviser David Axelrod had a message for President Barack Obama. "I think they just planted the seeds of your re-election," he told his boss. "The most strident voices had seized control of the Republican Party and you knew that the nominee who would emerge either would come from that Tea Party base or would have to yield to it in order to be the nominee," Axelrod told Reuters. That nominee ended up being former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and Obama's campaign went on to exploit his ties to the conservative wing of his party and outmaneuver him to victory in the Nov. 6 general election. Axelrod, who left the White House to oversee strategy for the president's 2012 campaign, and fellow Democr ...

Obama to use "affirmative" message in closing campaign pitch By Jeff Mason | Reuters – 2 hrs 23 mins ago.. . . WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After three days of focusing on superstorm Sandy, President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail on Thursday with a more "affirmative" message to win over undecided voters in the final days of the race for the White House. With polls showing a tight contest between the Democratic incumbent and Republican challenger Mitt Romney before Tuesday's election, Obama will use trips to political battleground states to make a closing appeal for a second term. That argument will touch on points he has made for months about the choice between competing Republican and Democratic visions, Obama advisers said, but it will put more weight on Obama's ideas for the future and could resurrect some of the hopeful themes that helped him win election in 2008. "You're going to see him lift up ... the vision of what we're fighting for," senior campaign strategist David Axelrod said in ...
All roads to the White House appear to lead through Ohio, which explains why the campaigns for President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney are spending so much time squabbling about the auto-industry bailout that affected hundreds of thousands of workers in the swing state. In the latest volley, Obama campaign officials are pushing back on a claim Republican nominee Romney made last week during a stump speech that Chrysler would be moving Jeep manufacturing to China. Based on a news story by Bloomberg, Romney's take was misleading enough for Jeep to issue a clarification on its website. "Let's set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China," wrote Gualberto Ranieri, Jeep's senior vice president of corporate communications. "It's simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world's largest auto market. U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation. A careful and unbiased readin ...
U.S. presidential race is all about Ohio - or is it? WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With one week left in the tight battle for the White House, it's all about the vital swing state of Ohio. Unless it's about Colorado - or Iowa, or tiny New Hampshire. Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney both have clear paths to the 270 electoral votes needed for victory - and they don't all go through Ohio, the state that both sides have long viewed as key to capturing the White House. Obama still has a slight electoral map advantage fueled by his slim lead in Ohio, but Romney has steadily closed the gap or moved slightly ahead in some other battleground states. Eight states remain relative toss-ups. Both candidates can construct multiple winning scenarios, with or without Ohio. And it's now possible that the tipping point could emerge from another battleground, such as Colorado, where Obama and Romney are deadlocked in the polls. "At this point, there are probably more electoral map scenarios t ...
Crowley to Axelrod: Obama Never Said Benghazi Attack Was 'Act of Terror' Email Article Print Article Send a Tip by Tony Lee 17 Oct 2012 29 post a comment On CNN's "State of the Union" on September 30, Candy Crowley insisted David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's Chief Strategist, was wrong when Axelrod tried to claim President Barack Obama called the Benghazi attack "an act of terror" on the day after. "First, they said it was not planned, it was part of this tape," Crowley said when Axelrod tried to spin her. This was Crowley the journalist, unlike the pro-Obama advocate who moderated Tuesday's debate between Obama and Mitt Romney and interjected herself into an argument between Obama and Romney on the exact same issue -- and took Obama's side. During the debate, Crowley affirmed Obama's assertion that he referred to the Benghazi attacks as acts of terror on the day after. After Romney correctly said it took Obama 14 days before Obama said the the Benghazi attacks were acts of terror, Crowley took Obama ...
Axelrod: Obama could have Swiss bank account if he wanted Posted by CNN's Kevin Liptak (CNN) – Mitt Romney's accounts in offshore tax havens would have repercussions in essential governing decisions if he's elected president, a top adviser to President Barack Obama claimed Sunday. David Axelrod said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Romney's accounts in places like Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda would cloud his decision-making on reforming the tax code, and that the current president had avoided such conflicts of interest in his own investing choices. "We lose $100 billion a year to offshore tax shelters," Axelrod told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. "We've learned from the limited disclosure that he's made that Gov. Romney takes advantage of these. He had a Swiss bank account. He has a Bermuda holding company." He continued, "When we go to reform the tax code, how does that inform his judgment? He's told us his business experience is the lens through which he's going to l ...

Obama, Romney to square off in presidential debates 4 hrs ago CHICAGO (Reuters) - On long flights to swing states in the West and late nights at the White House after his children have gone to bed, President Barack Obama is cramming like a student for a test that could determine his political future. The subject? His opponent, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The test? His face-off with the former Massachusetts governor at their first one-on-one debate next month. With the race still tight despite Obama's slight lead in the polls, the stakes are high for both men to perform well at the three debates this fall and gain momentum toward sealing the November 6 election. Forced to juggle his governing and campaigning responsibilities, Obama is squeezing in debate prep when he can. "We don't have the same luxury that Romney does in terms of time," Obama's chief campaign strategist David Axelrod said. That means Obama uses flights to Nevada, Colorado and other election swing states on Air Force One t ...
Ryan told another whopper in his speech. (I wonder if he and Romney are briefed together on the lies that they tell) - From the Huffington Post: 'At the Republican National Convention on Wednesday evening, vice presidential hopeful Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) illustrated economic failure under President Barack Obama with an anecdote about a factory that closed before Obama took office. Ryan said, "Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said, 'I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.' That’s what he said in 2008." "Well, as it turned out, that plant didn't last another year," Ryan continued. "It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight." It's an attack Ryan has used before, and one that the Detroit News has called inaccurate: "In fact, Obama made no such promise and the plant halted production in December 2008, when President George W. B ...

Excerpt from NYT article: The Political Black Hole SOMEWHERE ON A BUS — Speaking to a crowd of blue-collar workers in Ohio, President Barack Obama hailed the scientific news from Geneva as “a great moment in history, not unlike my rescue of the auto industry.” The physicists who made the discovery, Obama noted, all had health insurance. WOLFEBORO, N.H. — Mitt Romney today denounced Barack Obama for allowing Europe to beat the United States at particle physics research. Under his administration, Romney vowed, “All particles that bind the earth together will be discovered in America, by Americans and for Americans.” SOMEWHERE ELSE ON A BUS — President Barack Obama told a crowd of blue-collar workers that there have been more Higgs bosons discovered during his administration than during those of both George Bushes combined. On “Face the Nation,” David Axelrod, the Obama campaign communications director, said that if the Large Hadron Collider had been acquired by Bain Capital it would have ...

Democrats have rounded on revelations about a private dinner of House Republicans on inauguration day in 2009 in which they plotted a campaign of obstruction against newly installed president Barack Obama. During a lengthy discussion, the senior GOP members worked out a plan to repeatedly block Obama over the coming four years to try to ensure he would not be re-elected. The disclosures – described as "appalling and sad" by Obama's Chief Strategist David Axelrod – undermine Republican claims that the president alone is to blame for the partisan deadlock in Washington. A detailed account of who was present at the dinner on that January 20 night and the plan they worked out to bring down Obama is provided by Robert Draper in 'Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the US House of Representatives', published this week. In his book, Draper opens with the heady atmosphere in Washington on the days running up to the inauguration and the day itself, which attracted 1.8 million to the mall to witness Obama being ...
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded a $5.9 million grant to a University of Chicago Medical Center program run by one of President Barack Obama's closest friends.
President Barack Obama's re-election organization is spending a lot of time attacking Mitt Romney over his careers in venture capital (investing in start-ups) and private equity (investing in troubled or failing businesses). To reporters at Bloomberg Businessweek, Obama senior campaign adviser David Axelrod recently ripped Mr. Romney for "leveraging companies with debt, bankrupting companies and making money off of those bankruptcies . . . [that] cost jobs and certainly wages and benefits." And an Obama campaign briefing paper says "Romney closed over a thousand plants, stores and offices . . . cut employee wages, benefits and pensions . . . laid off American workers and outsourced their jobs to other countries." The president is guilty of the same alleged sins. The Obama administration, after all, forced General Motors and Chrysler into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009 and then capriciously ordered thousands of local dealerships closed. The auto industry bailout cost lots of Americans their jobs. GM employe ...
