Bob Woodward Recalls
‘Unpleasant,’ ‘Taxing’ Dining
Experience With Al Gore

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/5/2013 1:46:38 PM

Speaking in Ohio this week, the Youngstown Vindicator reports, veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward recalled an “unflattering” story about a dining experience with former Vice President Al Gore. According to the local paper, Woodward “told an unflattering, but amusing story about sitting next to former Vice President Al Gore at a dinner, saying being with him was taxing.” “To be really honest, it’s unpleasant,” the journalist added of his experience with Gore. Woodward also said that the former VP “pressed him on why the journalist didn’t go after Bush, who beat Gore in the 2000 presidential election, over the war in Iraq.”

Comments:
Eeeuw.

This must be Woodward´s payback for all the attacks on him over Obama.

Forget having dinner with him; you can escape after the meal´s over. Imagine being married to this sanctimonious pontificating dull-witted bore. No wonder Tipper was on anti-depressants. I´d have taken an overdose.

Poor Al! From hustling the TV station he probably bought w/ the proceeds from badmouthing big oil...to big oil...

To watching his imaginary climate smarts go up in an incredibly cool puff of C02 laden smoke...

Be a wonder if the guy doesn´t fall to his knees nightly and pray that ´tarring and feathering´ pompous idiots´ doesn´t somehow regain popularity...

I don´t know what to think about Bob (or, what about Bob).

He seems to get real close to having something critical and biting to say, but doesn´t quite get there. Then, when he feels the heat from the left, he walks it back anyway.

Bob, if you really believe something, say it! Stop being so mealy-mouthed about it.

If the administration pressured/threatened you, just say it. If Al Gore was a jerk, just say it.

Argentina´s Luck Is Finally Running Out
Forbes, by Ian Vasquez    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 2/1/2014 8:22:29 AM     Post Reply
Argentina’s luck is finally starting to run out. It devalued its currency by 15 percent last week, marking the beginning of a possible economic crisis of the kind Argentina has become known for. Argentina’s problem is that it has followed the logic of populism for more than a decade and President Cristina Kirchner is showing no interest in changing course. In the 1990s Argentina combined far-reaching but sometimes flawed market-reforms with irresponsible fiscal policies, culminating in its 2002 default on $81 billion in debt—the largest sovereign default in history. The country delinked its currency from the dollar, experienced a severe economic

Education: What does it take to turn an ordinary school official into a red-star commissar remorselessly yanking lunches from hungry kids and tossing them in the trash? Try an anti-school choice union and a big bureaucracy. It actually happened at Uintah Elementary School in the Salt Lake City school district. The story from the embattled school administrators is that a "child nutrition manager" sought to correct the arrears of parents´ payments to their subsidized lunch program ($2.50 a day) and, after giving a day´s notice, had food service workers yank the trays of served food right out of the children´s little

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro took part in the opening of the Hugo Chávez Museum located in San Carlos de la Cabaña fortress, Havana. The ceremony was held within the framework of the Second Presidential Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, (Celac). "Chávez was the warrior of the light, the warrior of ideas who found the lost paths," said Maduro during the opening ceremony attended by several heads of state, including the presidents of Uruguay, José "Pepe" Mujica; Bolivia, Evo Morales; and Cuba´s Raúl Castro.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Mayor Bill de Blasio may have harshly criticized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his administration’s recent “bridgegate” scandal, but for one night, at least, it was all water under the bridge. The pair kicked off this weekend’s Super Bowl festivities with a joint appearance in Jersey City last night. And if Mr. de Blasio had any lingering harsh feelings about the alleged traffic shutdown over the George Washington Bridge, he certainly didn’t show it. Instead, the bipartisan pair looked like old friends as they appeared on stage together to count down to a fireworks display at the

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – Hundreds of armed men belonging to community self-defense groups occupied eight small towns near Chilpancingo, capital of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, and detained a dozen suspected extortionists, a spokesperson for the vigilantes said. The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

Socialism: The huge currency devaluations that hit Venezuela and Argentina last week could be seen coming a mile away. This is a warning to the U.S. about big-government spending policies financed by printing money. The markets have given a resounding vote of no confidence to many emerging-market currencies, triggering sell-offs as far flung as Turkey, Russia and South Africa. But nowhere were the losses as catastrophic as those in two socialist Latin American countries that have thumbed their noses at fiscal discipline, ruthlessly used printed cash to expand their states and treated their citizens as cash cows, gleefully chasing out thousands of

Argentina is considering the purchase from Israel of 18 multipurpose combat aircraft Kfir Block 60 after negotiations with Spain for 16 Mirage F1 fighter bombers fell through, according to a report from Buenos Aires daily Clarin. Apparently Israel´s offer has been on the Defense minister Agustin Rossi´s desk since some time but only resurfaced sometime back in September following on the frustrated deal with Spain. Clarin also mentions that news of the negotiations between the Argentine ministry of defense and Israel´s Aero-spatial Industry, IAI, which manufactures the Kfir Block 60, caused ´concern´ in the British government since it is

CARACAS, Venezuela — President Nicolas Maduro has a new villain as he campaigns to bring down Venezuela’s spiraling crime: TV soap operas. He accuses them of spreading “anti-values” to young people by glamorizing violence, guns and drugs. The criticism follows attacks last year by Maduro on violent video games and the Hollywood movie “Spider-Man.” On Monday night, his vice president, Jorge Arreaza, met with broadcast and pay TV operators to review the prime-time lineup, warning that they could be in violation of a 2004 law mandating “socially responsible” programming. The two sides will meet in a week with the aim of drafting an agreement

WHEN Woody Allen received a Golden Globe award for lifetime achievement a few weeks ago, there was a lively debate about whether it was appropriate to honor a man who is an artistic giant but also was accused years ago of child molestation. Allen’s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent. People weighed in on all sides, but one person who hasn’t been heard out is Dylan Farrow, 28, the writer and artist whom Allen was accused of molesting.

He made the comments at a Buckingham Palace awards ceremony on Thursday.

Moody´s rating agency has lowered the outlook for health insurers from stable to negative, blaming ObamaCare. Few Americans will shed tears for insurance companies. But the Moody´s announcement is a warning sign to taxpayers. They´ll be getting clobbered. Section 1342 of the Affordable Care Act forces taxpayers to make insurers whole for most of the losses incurred selling ObamaCare exchange plans through 2016. The bailout is designed to conceal the failure of the president´s signature health law until he is out of office. No one in the Obama administration talked up the advantages of bailing out insurers. It was kept under wraps until

After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove´s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove´s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, "Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the

World peace? No problem for Tim Tebow. Turns out the Patriots did themselves and Tebow a huge favor by releasing him from his contract before the season. Tebow has cashed in on his #NoContract status with a pair of 30-second commercials for T-Mobile set to air during the Super Bowl. If this one is any indication, the rest of the field will be fighting for second place in the "Best in Show" category. The ad is both creative, funny and incredibly well-produced. Enjoy this slice of Super Bowl ad heaven and God bless.
