President Barack Obamas personal assistant is leaving the White House.
Reggie Love, the former Duke basketball player who has been a constant presence by Obamas side since the 2008 presidential campaign, will depart the White House by the end of the year.
Love has been managing his role at the White House while also enrolled in an executive MBA program at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. A White House official said Love was leaving the administration so he could focus on school.
His ability to juggle so many responsibilities with so little sleep has been an inspiration to watch, Obama said in a statement. He is the master of what he does.
Love, 30, is the latest in a string of longtime Obama aides to leave the White House this year, including senior adviser David Axelrod, press secretary Robert Gibbs, deputy press secretary Bill Burton and deputy communications director Jen Psaki. All were part of Obamas team since at least since the 2008 race.
But it is Love who has had perhaps the most unique access to the president.
As Obamas personal assistant a job thats also known as the presidents body man since the beginning of the administration, Love has been a near-constant presence by Obamas side, both at the White House and in travels around and outside the United States.
Love first started working for Obama in his Senate office, and was promoted to personal assistant during the presidential campaign.
His job requirements have included everything from carrying copies of the presidents speeches, his iPod, and a steady supply of gum, newspapers and aspirin, to taking photos for audience members as they shook the presidents hand. Wherever the president goes, Love has rarely been more than a few steps behind.

You can say that again...
He got tired of the introductions, no doubt:
"Meet Reggie Love my body man."
...But it is Love who has had perhaps the most unique access to the president...
They might want to re-phrase this comment.
If Love is leaving the Administration, can Hate be far behind in taking up residence?
They left out playing basketball
Does Reggie sing and dance for his master?
- no doubt!
“He is an inspiration to watch. He is the master of what he does. — Obastard
Yuck. I need a brain wash after that.
Is this why the Missus takes a separate flight? Is this why we pay for two planes instead of one?

watch Kal Penn get a promotion to “body man”
[But it is Love who has had perhaps the most unique access to the president.]
What’s the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex?
Why dat would be in da butt Bob.
I am not responsible for the replies to this post. Reggie has been with 0bama since 2008 and somehow managed to keep a very low profile.
‘gum, newspapers and aspirin’
What is this, 1928?
Q: What’s the worst part of Reggie Love exiting the White House?
A: Leaving his friend’s behind
I hear Chris Rock is going to step up
$102K salary for carrying things around. Not bad.
Reggie Love, Obamas little brother, to exit the White House
Just the title...OMG!
ba dum dum ssssssdhhhhhing
The Wookie makes her family and “friends” dance for their cheap (sorry, inexpensive) “Christmas presents,” as per an article just the other day. So surely the main squeeze must sing and dance too.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, no one spent more time with Barack Obama than Love not even Obamas wife, Michelle. Love worked out with Obama every morning and could generally be found playing cards, watching sports or just talking and relaxing with Obama at the end of the day.
i was reading a thread the other day (God forbid I remember) about some of the FOBs who are, shall we say, no longer with us? (handy that FOB fits for "Friend of Bill" AND "Friend of Barack")
Help Wanted: Athletic personal attendant needed. Must be able to buy and supply gum. Must be by assigned staffer's side at all times. Must be fit and have good personal hygine. Must command a presence to keep others away who may interfere with superior. Must go without sleep.
All that for $200,000 per year plus expenses? I thought it was Herman Cain who held these kind of job offers?
Aww... Barry will miss getting a Sandusky from his Reggie Love.
I would venture that Reggie knows a lot of stuff about 0bama and maybe even security issues and other things of that nature. If he spent as much time around 0bama as claimed...he knows stuff.
Wasn’t Penn beaten up by 0bama bodyguards on some street in DC?
Must be by assigned staffer’s side at all times
Are you sure it says “side”??
Obama loves leading from behind.
They left out letting the boss win at bassitball.
LMAO, Best reply so far.
And probably true.
To be replaced by Jerry Sandusky formerly of Penn State?
If you go to Google and look at the images, it is easy to see which is the Fem in that couple.
Reggie got tired of his house name “Stepin Fetchit”.
Wherever the president goes, Love has rarely been more than a few steps behind.
Well, that’s believable! ;)
Who will be Obama’s new Love?
I suspect something bad will happen to him.
Someone thought Rahm was hot???
“Unique access...” Would that mean a rear entry? Through the back door on the “Down Low” ?
What a sham this fraud has been. Time for serious leadership.
O my gosh, yes. Look at what happened to Donald Young, Nate Spencer and Larry Bland...
Hopefully Reggie will have his own body man.
