Skip to comments.Bob Woodward Potrayal of Obama Pleases White House
Posted on 09/22/2010 3:44:14 PM PDT by ColdOne
The new Bob Woodward book portrays President Obama as hard-nosed and demanding in the process of drafting a new U.S. military strategy in Afghanistan last year. And senior White House officials seem pleased by the portrait.
"I think the book portrays a thoughtful, vigorous policy process that led us to a strategy to get us the best chance of achieving our objectives and goals in Afghanistan," said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.
In an exchange with reporters on Air Force One as Mr. Obama flew to New York for two-and-a-half days of diplomacy at the United Nations, Gibbs said he hope

Woodward wrote the book exactly the way the White House told him to write it. So of course they are pleased with it.
I read Bob Woodward the same way I read Tom Friedman - i.e. Never!
Old time liberal BS, dressed up to look “non-partisan”. I, for one, ain’t buyin’ it.
Nah there’s plenty in there they would have changed. They took the approach of giving more access rather than less, so they can’t do much other than look at the bright side.
It makes it look like he is moving to the center, BillyJeff style.
Looks like the beginnings of a mutual tingle down the leg society. Sounds like the crass of the asses, is equal to the tingles of the dingles.
I’m going to be busy all evening trying to figure out which of these two dingles is most deserving of my contempt.
What a couple of dingle-heads.
I don’t trust a thing this bunch in our whitey house says. I think the book, based on the excerpts I have seen today, is not very flattering to dumbo at all and that glibbs is trying to spin the book to discourage reading it. As in, ‘Nothing to see here. Move on citizens, move on.”
Must come down
Gotta go round
Talk about yer troubles
Its a cryin sin
Ride a painted pony
Let the spinnin wheels spin . . . . .
OK. Book says Bambi figured we can “absorb” another terrorist hit, even 9/11. That is a “bring it on” challenge to the Mussies. He is just getting US ready to turn other cheek when they ignite a nuke on a high pop area. He also doesn’t mind telling his “base” that he ignored all the (fascist) Generals by setting a definite pull out date and not have victory as a goal in Iraq or Afghanistan. Isn’t that just peachy. Rush, today, showed the number of lies Bambi has told to the people by TOTUS, and chronicled by Woodward, IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE BAMBI LOOK GOOD with his base!! He does not care whe WE think!
That symbol always makes me think “Dairy”. LOL
They especially love the part where Obama says a terror attack is no biggie.
This lack of concern indicated just how much contempt that they have for this country and her Armed Forces.
Obama has people like Bob Woodward.
I did not know that Bob Woodward wrote fiction!
No, this is calculated statement ffrom the White House to run damage control—they know the book makes Obama look like political sleazebag with no convictions.
But Axlerod and company practice “opposite day” when it comes to spin. This is pure manipulation. Say how great the book is, that the President looks decisive etc, and keep saying it. They KNOW most americans won’t even READ it—they wil just keep defying reality and logic and say how great it shows Obama.
This is the biggest slimey group of wastes of oxygen that have ever been controlled the oval office.
They are lowlife bacteria.
Is this the Bob Woodward who persecuted Richard Nixon, who wasn’t a fraction as crooked as Lyndon Baines Johnson if crooked at all?
In the book the Messiah says, as regards the Islamic terrorism, bring it on. ...our nation was stronger after the terrorist attack of 9/11.
Pres. Barack Hussein Obama sounds like he is asking for another major terrorist attack on America. And what does the Messiah mean by the nation being stronger? What we elected the Muslim Keith Ellison to congress in 2006? That we elected the person who bows to Saudi Arabians President in 2008? What does the Messiah think the next major terrorist attack will bring about? Sharia law throughout all of America?
Obama and his creepy remarks!
