Skip to comments.Bob Woodward: ‘Very Senior’ White House Official Warned Me
Posted on 02/27/2013 5:26:38 PM PST by Art in Idaho
Appearing on CNN Wednesday, the Washington Posts Bob Woodward said a very senior person at the White House warned him that he would regret doing this, referring to his outspoken criticism of President Barack Obamas handling of the impending forced cuts known as the sequester.
I think theyre confused, Woodward told CNN host Wolf Blitzer. Woodward apparently went on to criticize Obama further over the sequester the same day he received the warning from the White House.
It makes me very uncomfortable for the White House to be telling reporters, you are going to regret doing something that you believe in, he added. Its Mickey Mouse.

Go Bob! I hope this is the beginning of the end. Maybe other reporters will now have the guts to start reporting on the real Obama.
Valarie Jarrett. You know, the one WHI and Ulsterman have been right about for years and is not allowed to be posted here.
Bless your heart.
Yes Go Bob! I’ve never been a fan of his, but this is an outrage.
...what makes ya think that Bob?
I guess he is now learning the hard way that Nixon was small potatos compared to Obama.
They love and support the ruthless African communist Ubama. They will continue to do what they are told.
And if the same rank of person in the Nixon whitehouse had issued the same threat, what would the news story look like? You can bet it would name the threatening funtionary of this budding dictatorship.
Yup, probably her. . or Bob disquised it as maybe it was from Axelrod. . he still is a 'very senior' white house official. . the Chicago way. .
Darth Traitor finds Woodward’s lack of faith disturbing.
I hope Woodward has top notch security, he may need it. Amazing.
He will have to back down. Nobody else in the press corp is willing to stand up to Hussein.
Name names or shut up BOb. I guess the threat worked on you!
I think this is perhaps a sign that the wheels are about to come off the OZero wagon. No one I know actually cares about the looming sequestration. In fact most are quite ok with it. Other than loony lefties no one thinks the world will come to an end on Friday. And little by little reporters are waking up to the fact that their love, Obama, is simply using them.
What is that accent he has - Ohio? Michigan?
Let's just hope the GOP eunuchs don't cave at the last minute so everyone can see that, indeed, a piddly 2% reduction in the rate of Fedzilla's budget increase will not usher in the apocalypse.
Me too. Glad he 'went public' with it. I really do hope many members of the media will see this as an attack on 'one of their own' and circle the wagons. We'll see.
Threats = Tyranny.
Welcome to Chicago Woodward.
No, how about Deep Throat?
“Very Senior” usually means the Big Enchilada Himself.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM TOTALITARIANS??????? you USELESS propagandist POS.
Its probably Adolf..I mean Axelrod..or it could be Iranian’s favorite Commie Valerie Jarrett who did say before the election that Obama’s “enemies” would pay the price once he got re-elected..oh and no matter what Woodward says, the media will NEVER EVER go against Obama..why would they, they agree with him, his agenda is their agenda
Woodward grew up in Wheaton, Ill, a suburb of Chicago. He then went to Yale. He sounds a lot like my Dad. . I grew up in Iowa. .
Wow, now wouldn't that be something. Doesn't sound like Obama though. . too much effort. Levin said Woodward talked with a male at the WH for over a half an hour and the threat was his parting shot. .
I’d like to be wrong, but my bet is Woodward will soften and back this down within 72 hours.
pssst hey Bob you wanna buy some gonads ? Goin cheap!!
