Meet The New Whitehouse Social Secretary

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Obama continues to make history:

Prominent Chicago businesswoman Desiree Rogers will be named the White House social secretary, according to a series of news reports. The 49-year-old Harvard MBA will be the first African-American to hold the post.

Rogers, 49, is a friend of Michelle and President-elect Barack Obama’s, and a leader in Chicago corporate and civic circles; her appointment signals that the first couple consider the job crucial to how they introduce themselves to the country and the globe. She was a major fundraiser for Obama.

According to news reports, Barack Obama will also introduce his economic team later today. He’s doing us proud. Obama done swooped down and grabbed the reigns like a true maverick. Lawd knows we need the change – in every way.

And he still makes time for us regular folk. Dig Obama during a recent visit to Manny’s Coffee Shop & Deli in Chicago.

    Acutally it’s “rein,” not “reign” or”rain.” Rein as a noun refers to a leather strap fastened on to a horse’s bridle and used to control the horse. As a verb, to rein means to check or guide a horse using the reins.

    “Grabbed the ‘RAINS’ like a true maverick?”

    “LAWD knows we need the change?”

    I guess that’s y Obama chose Ms Rogers 4 Social Secretary… she likely doesn’t sound like a slave.

    “These truths we hold to be self evident…”

    Rolle, The Obamas, Colin Powel, Mrs. Rogers and countless others are examples of what many of us always know OF US. This begins an era of being accurately represented to the world. CHANGE has come. Progess has begun and is still being made.

    Well said!

    She is a beautiful woman. Barack makes me so proud everyday. I didn’t think I could get any prouder!! I’m so happy to be an American now!!!
