Spring cleaning at the White House today?
First the V.A. Secretary, now Jay Carney.
President Barack Obama made a surprise appearance Friday to announce that his chief spokesman Jay Carney is leaving his post behind the podium.
Obama called Carney one of his closest advisers and friends at the White House in remarks to the press in the White House briefing room.
“In April, Jay came to me in the Oval Office and said that he was thinking of moving on, and I was not thrilled, to say the least,” he said. “But Jay has had to wrestle with this decision for quite some time.”
