Wednesday night, in the aftermath of the blow-up regarding the White House’s email to Bob Woodward suggesting he would "regret" his reporting of sequestration, White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe took to twitter to bash Woodward as a past-his-prime hack: That, of course, is the same theme that the entire Obama-supporting media from BuzzFeed to Slate suggested. The White House-coordinated media sure knows its cues.
Comments: Plouffe is an obnoxious little worm. I hope they all suffer because of their horrific behavior. It´s long past due. The copy of the tweet does not copy. It is in the article.
"This administration has now gone beyond arrogance and is now into criminal and tyrant territory," and the American people should not tolerate this horrid behavior. I have not been a big fan of Woodward, but he is now a hero in my book. Someone has to stand up to these thugs.
Maybe, just maybe, the Obama regime will realize they made a tactical error when they tried to bring down Bob Woodward. They are trying to force journalists to make a choice--either continue to be our lyin´ lapdogs, or defend Bob Woodward and suffer the consequences. You too will be isolated and ostrasized, you too will have your reputation smeared by this regime of Chicago thugs. You too will have no access. But Woodward knows what´s a stake. If American journalists continue to be Obama´s lyin´ lapdogs, they´ll ruin their careers anyway, because they will have lost all credibility with the public. He is trying to give his fellow journalists some daylight, and we are watching the drama unfold in real time. Definitely popcorn worthy!
If I were to take a guess, Fluff (as i will refer to this maggot) is the senior advisor that riled Woodward. I´m guessing Obama is now going to throw Fluff under the bus if he can´t save his own skin by smearing Woodward. Hey it´s worked before. I just fear Woodward would rather succumb to the tyranny than grow a backbone and stand with us. I hope he can.
past-his-prime? When was his prime, watergate? I´m sorry but Woodward is in deep trouble, he is digging as hard as he can but he is still the same liberal hack he always was. When he starts to report the truth instead of covering up for the WH then maybe he will win. Why didn´t he write about the threats when they happened instead of days later?
Be advised, Poofster, that like him or loathe him, Bob Woodward is going to be around long after Barack, Michelle and the rest of you limp-wristed metrosexuals have been drop-kicked through the Portals of Hell.
They must- and I mean Absolutely Must!- make an example, and quickly, of this out of step lefty journo. If not, the dominoes will start to fall and the rickety mass of yellow, cowardly leftist, Maoists that pass for journalists in the nation will fall in like a house made of dried winter leaves. And, if that happens, the Øbamunists are finished.
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough held an unpublicized meeting with Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.), chairman of the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm, amid anger and anxiety that ObamaCare’s botched rollout could cost the party its majority next year. In the meeting, requested by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), McDonough and Bennet discussed what the White House could do to help vulnerable Senate Democrats and “talked about developing a stronger relationship with the White House,” according to one senior Democratic aide familiar with the conversation. Democratic senators fear the White House is not sympathetic enough to their plight. After the
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that immigration is an issue that disproportionally affects women. “Immigration is really a woman issue,” Ros-Lehtinen said at Wednesday´s Women Rule Summit in Washington, D.C. “It’s a family centered issue and I think we need to focus it more that way and look at how it impacts domestic violence. … This issue of immigration directly impacts and it’s usually the mom and the kids.” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said that women in her state of Minnesota say that “the economy is what they care about the most” and said that “we’re really proud of our Senate
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday. The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said. No one claimed responsibility for the shooting. The U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed in late 2012 when Islamist militants assaulted the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare. The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging. HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.” Without a hint of irony, McDonald sings her chorus: “Ain’t about
A Texas middle school principal has been placed on paid leave after she banned the speaking of Spanish by students while in class. In Hempstead, a town of about 6,000 about 50 miles northwest of Houston, a school district spokeswoman confirmed that Amy Lacey has been placed on leave pending investigation of her Nov. 12 announcement over the intercom at Hempstead Middle School. More than 50 percent of the school enrollment of about 330 students is Hispanic. KHOU-TV of Houston reports a letter was sent by the district to school parents on December 2 assuring that neither the district nor
Republican lawmakers bashed the Obama administration at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday for opting not to enforce core parts of the Affordable Care Act, such as minimum requirements for individual healthcare plans. Rep. Trent Franks (Ariz.), the chairman of the Judiciary panel’s Constitution and Civil Justice subcommittee, said Congress should sue the administration to spur Obama to enforce the healthcare law as written. “I think that’s the only choice we have, and that’s not just on ObamaCare, that’s on a host of different things,” Franks told The Hill. “He simply embodies a breathtaking arrogance that ignores the law he’s sworn to
Sunny, the Obama’s new puppy, knocked down a two-year-old girl Wednesday who was visiting the White House for the unveiling of the holiday decorations. Sunny and Bo were brought into the State Dining Room to visit children who were taking part in holiday crafts. The year-old puppy tried to escape her handler, knocking down 2-year-old Ashtyn Gardner in the process. The little girl got up quickly and her dad John said she was fine. Michelle Obama was present and helped Ashytn to her feet. The First Lady later checked on the little girl again. Obama was unveiling the 2013 holiday decorations and had invited
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
