Bob Woodward Takes Down Obama
American Spectator ^ | 10.14.12 @ 12:39PM | By Quin Hillyer

Posted on 10/14/2012 10:35:52 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Very strong stuff from Bob Woodward criticizing The One's administration regarding Libya. These (the first link and this one) are two excellent videos. In the second, Woodward concludes that "anyone in the intelligence community knows that [Obama's brags about having hobbled al Qaeda] are not true."

[T]hose in the know have always said that Woodward has always had particularly good sources in the intelligence community, going back some 40 years.

Plus, as the perfect leading indicator for Washington conventional wisdom, Woodward signifies very bad news for a liberal if he comes down as hard on said liberal as Woodward did today in these two videos.

Smokescreen! The real story is the missing manpads! If the manpads are tied to Obama and Hillary, then it’s the end of the Democrat party! Why else would these people attack an American facility? For Gods sake, we helped them! Hillary was rightly stunned! This was an al-Qaeda operation to keep us from getting those missiles. And Obama and Hillary’s policies and actions lost those missiles. My God, they’re lieing and covering up to protect the whole Democrat party!

I don't recall seeing Woodward on a Fox panel before.

I wonder if the Washington Post is about to endorse Romney.

If I recall they endorsed Bush at least once.

Maybe someone ought to note to Chris Wallace that no, Benghazi was nothing like Watergate. Nobody died in Watergate. His shameless apologetic nod to Woodward needs to be reckoned with.

F Bob Woodward. Eight years of Clinton (”...crimes didn’t approach anything near Nixon’s...”). Four years of Obama, and now he’s the voice of reason?

This Democrat bastard sold his soul decades ago. He can go straight to hell, not pass go, and not collect his blood money.

This guy ushered in Carter. He gleefully looked the other way under Clinton. He remained silent regarding Obama.

Bob Woodward, is a fraud.

I believe that there is extortion going on. I think the movie story is part of a communication system with the extortionists. They made Obama and Clinton air that commercial to humiliate them and to show that Obama is aware of the extortion plot. I’m just not sure if the extortion is against the US or just the Democrat party. If the missiles are used in a terrorist attack and the missiles are traced back to Democrat policies, then it’s goodby to the Democrat party. Another scary thought is that the Democrats got rid of Kennedy for less than this. The thieves have to protect their organization.

Many of the 47% are there because of Obama and Democrats and will vote agaisnt them.
Another great portion of the 47% are lazy and will stay at home on their Obama phones talking about their free Obama phones without voting.

They are shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles.

Woodward and Logan are aligning for a media attack: Afghanistan is a defeat for us and our latest foray into the middle east is a victory for al qaeda.

An aside, who’s that clown to the right who opened the segment and said “I don’t want to compare this to Watergate”?

Watergate: President of US covered up a burglary
Afghanistan and Libya: President of US covering up a defeat in war and an attack by US-armed al quaeda.

Which is worse for our future?

Good point; I hadn’t looked at it that way. Who is the “they” and “thieves” doing the extorting? MB? Other muzzie groups? Democrat machine?

What’s a manpad?

1. MANPADS - Man-portable air-defense systems. Essentially a shoulder fired missile. Correct usage calls for all caps.

2. Manpad - manpad, a device used by men to pad their trousers at the crotch, similar to the archaic codpiece, but not so much in your face. Best modern example is the Rolling Stone magazine cover of Albert Gore Jr, with the manpad airbrushed in to indicate a larger “package” than his natural endowment. Gore currently has reversed the orientation of his manpad, much in the manner of the trademarked “Depends”.

“What’s a manpad?”

No, it is not another version of a “man cave”. MANPADS is a man portable air defense system. Think: FIM-92 “Stinger” shoulder fired surface-to-air missile.

Last week, Chris Plante (WMAL talk radio in Wash DC) did a promotion selling gas at a local station @ $1.86/gallon, the price locally on 1/20/09.

So what? If Obama only gets 47%, he’ll be blown out by percentage similar to the one he blew McCain out by. Momentum is with Romney and I have measured confidence it will stay that way.

“I wonder if the Washington Post is about to endorse Romney.”

Not likely, but I would not be surprised at all if the press abandons -bama over this next week due to Benghazi.

They KNOW how badly the continuous bleeding for two years after WaterGate damaged the president and his party. IF they smell a similar thing coming for -bama, it is possible that they will do what they can to be sure that does not happen to their whole party.

The real pro reporters are very unhappy about the Benghazi lies, including the true liberals.

Four years of Obama, and now he’s the voice of reason?

Bump. Good gig. He lectured us about Nixon, knowing what LBJ had been, and Kennedy and FDR before that.

Then he covered up for Slick.

Good call.

Thanks. Good call on the other presidents too.

How does it make you feel to know JFK could have been high as a kite during the Cuban Missile Crisis?
