Woodward at war
Politico, by Mike Allen & VandeHei

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/27/2013 8:44:01 PM

Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about - and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets. Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide,

Comments:
There have been many things I have disagreed with Woodward on. However, I am glad he is not backing down from 0bama and his Marxist regime. Maybe the rest of the media will take a lesson from him. Probably not.

I wonder how much of a heads up Woodward gave Nixon´s folks or any Republican he decided to skewer before writing those pieces.

But hey, that´s life.

The individual who threatened Woodward is a male (per Woodward). Politico just posted this article at 80 this evening.....after Mark Levin talked about it on his show. Politico´s conversation with Woodward too place YESTERDAY.

Have any other reporters been threatened?

Obama made a speech announcing the withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan, and all I heard was Nixon announcing peach in Vietnam. And ever since than...I keep seeing parallels between Obama and Nixon. Both paranoid. Both thin skin. Nixon was pragmatic and believed in the government´s ability to control aspects of our life to make it better. Obama is an egotist who believes in his right to rule...that he knows best an thus all should worship him. Nixon at least intelligent and loved this county. And deep down I think he was a good man. Anyway, it would be interesting to ask Woodward to do a compare and contrast between the two men and their Presidencies. Be interesting see if Woodward has finally figured out what a criminal really looks like...

You GO Bob, you have hit a very raw nerve and Barry is not very happy...but Barry needs to remember that you helped bring down Nixon, and he was 1000 times more the President than Barry can even dream about being! At least you are doing true reporting that the rest of the Lame Stream News Media is not doing because they are too busy protecting their Messiah and carrying the water for him!

You know, it is actually smart for us to sit back and let someone like Woodward lead the fight. He has a lefty pedigree which holds more weight with Dems. There is no way they can paint him as right wing or racist. Let more lefty journos jump on the band wagon as it gathers momentum before we climb aboard and enjoy the ride.

Well, I´m glad that Woodward´s a little revved up over this. Maybe something good will come of it.

Notice, though, the part where he says “I think if Obama himself saw the way they’re dealing with some of this, he would say, ‘Whoa, we don’t tell any reporter ‘you’re going to regret challenging us.’ ”

It reminds me that, in old Imperial Russia, some atrocity would occur in the countryside, and the peasants would say to each other, "If only the Czar knew about this, he would fix it." Later, in the Soviet Union, they would say "If only Stalin knew."

So - merely doing your job as a journalist and uttering a single White House-unapproved truth about Dear Leader is to be "at war"?! How far the press has come since Watergate...

It´s the rest of the MSM who, as the dishonest propaganda arm of the malignancy occupying the White House, are at war - with Americans.

Woodward, good liberal that he is, will cave like all liberals do. Someone will take him to the woodshed. Someone already threatened him, so don´t count on steadiness or character from Woodward.

What Woodward or someone else should ask this White House: "Do you seriously plan to risk American lives by cutting first responders while letting criminals out of jail around the country? And what are all those hollow-point bullets y´all bought up going to be used for?"

Woodward is credited with bringing down nixon. I am cheering for him to do it again. Obama has dozens of scandals worse than watergate. Woodward was popular the first time around and was made an instant hero. Now he can be a real hero and a real patriot. Now who wants to be "deep throat" in the Obama Admin?

Fascinating to see Mika Brezghenski (squinting, which is what she does when she thinks she is registering "thought") on todays Morning Joe go´s on about this being business as usual, push back from some aid, and never mention that the "aid" threatening was Gene Sperling, one of Obama´s top economic advisors.

A bit later Morning Joe (and Joe is such a jerk, even when he is defending!) showed a piece by another of Obama´s top guys saying Woodward MAY have been big time once but his is obviously past his sell by date. Let´s see if they can get away with trashing the man-----I doubt that he will back down. He is a Dem, no doubt, but he also has journalistic ethics that he tries to live by. Go Bob go! It´s about time someone calls to account our own personal Hugo Chavez and his cult of personality, which allows him to bend and break the law.

HuffPoo is already isolating the target. Woodward is their headline right now, and they refer to him as a "drama king". The article reads like it was written by the White House. They admit that Gene Sperling was the one who yelled at him. The article sneeringly implies that Woodward is a whiny baby and even mentions that Mr. Sperling is not "physically threatening", as if reporters were afraid of getting slugged, not losing access. The threatening email is characterized as apologetic, but ol´ drama king Woodward is obviously too dumb to understand the words written in it.

The left now has it´s narrative - White House = voice was raised, but now unthreatening little Gene Sperling is apologizing for his decibel level. Woodward = old, entitled, has-been attention seeker making a mountain out of a molehill because he needs the attention.

Wonder if Mr. Woodward is sorry yet? Will he be by the end of the day? The White House is demonstrating exactly what the threat meant, aren´t they?

Note what constitutes "war" to journalists today...merely daring to openly speak the truth. Woodward isn´t attacking Obama. Not is he attacking his policies. He was simply refusing to let a false version of the source of the sequestration go unchallenged. And now that´s "war". Pretty damning commentary on the state of journalism today.

And I don´t agree that Woodward will automatically return to the liberal fold once he feels the wrath of their ostracism. There are plenty of us former liberals now turned genuine conservatives here who understand exactly that this is Woodward´s "lightning bolt moment". You don´t need to get hit twice to understand what just happened.

I´m currently listening to "Mornings on the Mall" on WMAL talk radio out of DC. Apparently Lanny Davis ( of the Clinton machine ) got this same treatment from the WH over columns he wrote for the Washington Times. The WH also threatened the editor of the Times with loss of WH press credentials if the Times didn´t reign Davis in.

Zippy is shredding the First Amendment. In a sane world the press would turn on him - we´ll see...

The first thought I had when Woodworm came out with his
concern, was he has now lost his access to the White House.
The next move will probably be a walk back of sorts. In the meantime, in between time, it will be fun.

Yet another good example of how mean and ruthless our little man in the White House is. Birds of a feather flock together, as we see, and his bunch of high-powered thugs are proving it.

How sad and embarrassing to have Obama - a man of this caliber - as our president. It´s fortunate for us they threatened a reporter who is definitely not a right-winger. Surely some of the MSM will believe him.

I don´t know. Seems to me Woodward is not going to compromise all his work to just cave now. He was trying to support his points made in his book, and if Obama Hadn´t been so "chicken little" all week, none of this would even be news.

This gets in the weeds now, because it is obvious we have an incompetent leader, and the WHAT the lie is becomes second to the drama around it. And rest of the LSM are comatose.

If this story has real muscular legs, I´ll be surprised. In the end, Washington is all about accessibility of information. I am sure Mr. Woodward´s reputation is respected but the knives will turn when his exposé is focused on Democrat president. I can´t believe that he wants to be the guy who causes trouble for Obama. He would much rather his legacy be taking down Nixon.

Bob Woodward is nothing less than the elder statesman of American journalism and he is speaking out against the Obama administration. This is huge!
Also, he´s made so much money on his books and lecture fees that the WaPo needs him much more than he needs the WaPo. He can enjoy independence of thought and deed.
I think he is trying to right the ship of state that is the American MSM. The 24/7 fawning over Obama is driving away readership. And money.
We´ll see if this is working if and when more journalists start to criticize Obama.
I haven´t watched ´Morning Joe´ since before the election, but if they are sympathizing with Bob Woodward then his strategy is starting to work.
Regardless, this is definitely popcorn worthy.

The state controlled media will make Bob look like a crazed nut case before they will allow their lord and master, lord messiah o´bama to be seen for what he really is...
A FRICKEN LUNITIC!!!!
Lord messiah o´bama is being prepped to be
New World Order dictator, according to Henry
Kissenger in World Net Daily.
The world´s people better keep an eye on lord
messiah o´bama´s antics here in America because one day soon he may be doing the same
to those countries and then NO ONE will be able to control him.
The state controlled media will allow nothing
to happen to lord messiah o´bama so in a few
days this story will g away or the state controlled media will blame the republicans for what is about to happen and the sad part about this is over seventy-five percent of americans will believe the state controlled media´s fabricated stories.

I´m not yet ready to sign high praises to Bob woodward. He is and has been a life long liberal Dim and I just don´t think that he has made the transition to conservative. Remember, conservatives will give anyone credit for telling the truth. Especially when it concerns a morass of lies and deceit that the WH currently is.

And as for the WH threatening him, that´s really not even arguable. Of course they did. They do something like that to anyone who crosses their path. I wish Woodward good luck and pray that he doesn´t walk back on his word.

Woodward was able to bring down a president for simply lying to attempt to cover up a minor burglary. Imagine what he could do with four years of serious criminal acts, treason, election fraud and theft. I assume he knows how to watch his back because the threats WILL be followed up by action.

Now Americans with half a brain can clearly see the formation of the dictator (Americans with more than half a brain saw it earlier).
Media is self-censoring itself very efficiently, except the "geniuses" with enormous ego, like Woodward. He mistakenly thought that he can say whatever he wants. Woody, it doesn´t work this way - no untouchables in the totalitarian society!

I don´t think that Woodward will back down. He has spent the last four years in a fog watching the current administration pursure every course of action in an opposite manner that he, a devout liberal would propose. I think that the Drone Program and Gitmo´s continued existance are pushing him to a realization that he has been slow to acknowledge.

Woodward has made the mistake of being a "reporter" instead of a stenographer journalist. Bernstein died a year or two ago I think.

woodward, schmoodward, who cares! He is dedicated lib, who thinks that he can talk freely, while getting his paycheck from the leftist commie/fascists. Woody, you are wrong!
Btw, all this talk: obozo knew, obozo didn´t?
Yeah, stalin also didn´t know, and hitler didn´t know! There were russians and germans who actually believed in that....
I laugh at pundits comparing what is becoming of America with Europe. No, guys, it is not even close to that!

According to Politico, telling the truth about Obama constitutes being "at war" with Obama.

Wow.

Well, what else would you expect from these leftist cheerleaders?

Our (p)resident is a corrupt, dishonest, powermad lunatic, protected by a corrupt and cowardly press corps that dares not tell the truth about Wise King Barky.

An Iron Curtain has descended on the Washington press corps.

The proof that dictatorship is now operating in Washington is the fact that The Washington Post and other members of the liberal MSM are so weak and intimated by the White House´s threats against Bob Woodward that they´re fallen silent, or worse.

Not only are Bob Woodward´s colleagues afraid to speak up on his behalf and on behalf of freedom of the press, but some are even going out of their way to publicly bash Mr. Woodward to gain favor with the Obama dictatorship.

Bob Woodward has the opportunity to write a scathing expose about the Obama administration. He can travel to an undisclosed location to do so, if he feels uncomfortable in Washington. But will he? It´s doubtful that he has any more backbone than his cowering colleagues.

Well said #47 as usual.
Notice the media immediately cut out Woodward´s comment on MSNBC that placed the Obama actions in the same status he did in the Nixon coverup. The first Woodward comment then was over the stupid attempt to shut up and lock up the high official´s wife.
That comment om MSNBC followed his concern about Obama rushing around sounding off about crippling the military. Woodward I quote "This is the kind of madness that I haven´t seen in a long time."
How much more direct can he be? How could he not then put it all on the line to call out Obama for his madness?

#39, if Woodward gets invited to the Sunday am faze the nation and meet the depressed programs, they´ll try to Palinize him, anyway. But, at the same time, I think Woodward would hold his own. Strange, right now, that I feel for the same character who chose to bring Nixon down.

Report: Wendy Davis caught

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School.

They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department.

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
