Word from Washington this morning: White House legal counsel Bob “The Silencer” Bauer — husband of Fox-bashing Team Obama spinner Anita Dunn — is stepping down.

But he’s not retiring. He’s just switching seats on the bus, as usual, and gearing up for another bully boy presidential campaign.

A senior administration official say Bob Bauer is resigning as White House counsel to return to his private law practice and serve as President Barack Obama’s personal attorney and general counsel to Obama’s re-election campaign.

Flashback:

The thug politics power couple of Anita “A Pox on Fox” Dunn and Bob “The Silencer” Bauer isn’t going anywhere. I said it earlier this week and on Fox News early Thursday morning (vid here).

I’ll remind you again of Bauer’s handiwork during the 2008 campaign:

*It was Bauer who lobbied the Justice Department unsuccessfully last fall to pursue a criminal probe of American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad spotlighting Obama’s ties to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

*It was Bauer who attempted to sic the DOJ on GOP donor Harold Simmons and sought his prosecution for funding the ad.

*It was Bauer who tried to bully television stations across the country to compel them to pull the spot. All on Barack Obama’s behalf.

Bauer’s specialty is stifling dissent. He’s married to the woman Obama entrusted to lead the campaign to de-legitimize critics in the media.

They’re saddling up for 2012. Does the GOP have anyone capable of combating them?

I know one.
