Posted on 02/24/2013 2:11:39 PM PST by Libloather
The Washington Post's Bob Woodward tells POLITICO Playbook that the White House is muddling the facts on the sequester - "a classic case of distortion and confusion."
"The White House pushback is a classic case of distortion and confusion," Woodward said in an email to Playbook. "We unfortunately have seen this too often in recent presidential history... I do not think it is willful. They are just mixed up, surprisingly so."

What a demented loon
He might be more effective if he took the media to task for aiding Obama.
Of course it is. Woodward just can't bring himself to say so.
Woodward didn't seem so confused about Nixon, it seems.
Sissy Woodward will never man-up and be a REAL journalist. And it’s sad that he has a golden opportunity to be a real one by calling out the hypocrites - but of course, he would have to out himself in the process. But it would make for a good media splash!
What if the sequester went ahead on schedule and noboody noticed the difference?
The sums subject to the “sequester” amount to a bookkeeping error, and probably will be made up before the next month is out, just by printing more money under the “QE III” protocol.
Obamao WANTS military cuts!!!!!!!!!!!
If Bronco Bama REALLY wants to stop military spending, he would give the order to withdraw from Afghanistan tomorrow morning, and expedite an even bigger bug-out than the departure from Viet Nam.
And the fuse would be lit....
The Obamugabe Administration takes no responsibility for anything ever.
maybe some deep throat would help
“a classic case of distortion and confusion”
One word: Benghazi
Correct. Amazing that Woodward would even pretend that a this activist Gov't in Washington isn't "willful". Preposterous.
Woodward's a wimp.
“I do not think it is willful. They are just mixed up, surprisingly so.”
Reality to Woodward, nothing goes on in any negotiation of this importance, or frankly just anything, without the explicit approval of der leader. He called the shots and if not him, one of his chief advisors or the teleprompter. His “plausable denial” is simply not plausable except to a dimwit like you. I wonder Bob, why did you not believe Nixon when he said he was not a crook when you believe this lying POS?
From the guy who edited and supported the fraudulent hoaxer Janet Cooke at WaPo and even nominated her fabricated columns for a Pulitzer. His powers of discernment don't seem to have improved much.
...I do not think it is willful. They are just mixed up, surprisingly so."
If it isn't willful, we have "mixed up" people running the government...surprisingly so.
“We unfortunately have seen this too often in recent presidential history...
Translation....”George Bush’s Fault”.
So Bob, after FOUR YEARS in office this administration
is muddled up? Probably just a mistake eh?
It’s really pathetic to see these knob polishers
get down on their knees all the way to the end.
This is key. Another bubble of delusion pops.
You make me glad I read down the thread before posting. I wanted to be the first “Bush’s Fault.” I noticed the choice of words, too. Can’t help themselves, can they? More reliable than the saliva in Pavlov’s dog’s mouth.
This entire situation is sad. Whether these cuts are wise or not is not the issue. Barack Obama is simply not a man of his word. He shakes hands and will break the deal the next day or the next year...whatever works best for him politically. This is the real source of the animosity in DC...even more so than the natural left vs right politics of the day. President Obama is simply not a man of his word. Sequester will happen because its the only ‘word’ they can force Obama to keep. My guess is that it will get straigtened out by the end of March in the ‘Continuing Budget Resolution.’
As for immigration reform, if the GOP can get Biometric ID’s in place and e-verification they’ll probaby give amnesty. I’m not happy about but, I guess thats reality. I think Obama will cringe if this happens too because he loves to call us ‘racists’ and this will take that talking point away. The point being, he doesn’t really care about immigration reform, either. He’s a real piece of work...with a bad attitude and a chip on his shoulder. Working with him is like trying to convince your 14 year old HS student to study. He’s all excuse, talk, and whine....What a mess.
