White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel today dismissed a report from a British newspaper claiming he will soon leave his job after growing tired of President Obama's "idealism."

Citing unnamed "Washington insiders," the London Telegraph reported that Emanuel is expected to quit within six to eight months.

Emanuel, known for his use of colorful language, e-mailed a response to CBS News chief White House Correspondent Chip Reid: "As I would say this is bs or as the english like to say baseless."
