Dan Bartlett was the director of communications for U.S. President George W. Bush. "When Bush's valued counselor Karen Hughes left the White House, young mister Bartlett got her office -- and the responsibility for keeping the administration 'on message'." [1] He resigned from the White House, effective July 4, 2007.

According to his White House biography, Bartlett "oversees the White House Press Office, Office of Media Affairs, Communications, Speechwriting, and Global Communications. Prior to that, he was principal deputy to Karen Hughes, Counselor to the President. Before joining the Bush Administration, Dan Bartlett served as a senior spokesman and the Director of Rapid Response for the Bush for President campaign in Austin, Texas. He has served President Bush since 1993, working on both successful campaigns for Governor of Texas. From 1994 to 1998, Bartlett worked in the Governor's Office as Deputy to the Policy Director. During the 1998 re-election campaign, he served as Issues Director. Before joining President Bush, Mr. Bartlett worked for Karl Rove and Associates, an Austin-based political consulting firm. He earned his bachelors degree in political science from the University of Texas at Austin." [2] [3]

  • On January 23, 2006 Bartlett stated on NBC's Today Show that despite photographic evidence of George W. Bush being in the company of Jack Abramoff there was no personal relationship between the two. Perhaps half a dozen photos show the two political figures together. Abramoff earned a place as a Bush "Pioneer" for raising $100,000 for the Bush campaign. Source: n.a. "Bush Aide Says Abramoff Photos Coincidence." Washington Post. January 23, 2006.
