Bob Woodward blasted President Obama on Wednesday morning for deciding to recall an aircraft carrier from the Persian Gulf because of impending budget cuts, calling the decision "a kind of madness."
Woodward: Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying Oh, by the way, I cant do this because of some budget document? Or George W. Bush saying, You know, Im not going to invade Iraq because I cant get the aircraft carriers I need or even Bill Clinton saying, You know, Im not going to attack Saddam Husseins intelligence headquarters, as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document? Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I cant do what I need to do to protect the country. Thats a kind of madness that I havent seen in a long time.

We have at best, a madman in the White House, and at worse, a saboteur.
This makes perfect sense, actually.
It’s Ø spending on things he cares about, and slashing what he doesn’t. In the same way Reagan would yell: “OMG! I must find a way to keep that carrier in the Persian Gulf!!!”, Ø is yelling “OMG! I must find a way to keep people getting Øbamaphones!!!”. It’s just presidents ways of keeping the funds going for what they care about, nothing more nothing less.
the second “OMG!!!” should be “ØMG!!!”
just the second one though...
This applies equally to his party and media. Its not just him...he’s had plenty of help.
Woodward is SLOW... real slow... like he’s moving in slow motion..
Woodward is operating daily in political syrup.. very slowly..
-OR- he’s just stupid.. you know can’t see the difference between Watergate AND MURDERGATE... i.e. fast and furious..
It’s all power and manipulation. Nothing more. He and his kind are evil to the core who care nothing for this nation of whom they owe so much. THey are petulant little children who have been given the helm of the Country and we are suffering for it!
EVIL...that is the word. Walking to and fro in the world. It wears many guises. No, I’m not a religious fanantic by any means. I like to think I can cut to the chase about what we are facing.
Madness? None dare call it treason.
When if ever will Woodward & the rest figure out that the marxists plan is working. And working very well I might add.
He did A helluva job on Nixon but has been MIA on the marxist. Maybe he ain’t so bright & is A slow learner.
Welcome to the party, pal.
So I suppose this is Obama's way of dealing with the Israeli's. Just prior to his Israeli visit, he pulls back the carrier that could help stop the Iranians. That shows how concerned he is about Iran.
Just now on CNN Woodward said he got an email from a “high WH official” warning him to knock it off or something will happen.
