Depending on how honest Woodward decides to be, it should be clear to him that the tactics of this group are several magnitudes worse than anything he saw from the Nixon administration.

He needs to call out his colleagues in the media out on this.

They created and encouraged Obama.

Mark Levin is on this now. Apparently Woodward said he received a threatening email from a senior WH person saying he was going to regret this. Woodward said this on CNN

Yeah, sure they did, Bob.

How about publishing the email, including the name of this so-called "senior official"??

Uh-huh, that's what I thought. Pussy.

While I have literally no respect for Bob Woodward, he has been around the block a few times and I doubt he is going to be scared of Obama’s team when he was instrumental in taking down Nixon’s.

Too bad he didn't look into Obozos past in 2008
and if I remember he usually is in his corner it is a
little late now does he have a new book he is promoting?

If it is true, Woodword is doing the smart thing by exposing them for every word they threaten.

all of the fearful people who have been threatened by this administration should step forward.

Some heads need to roll...and can only roll if there is a group able to disclose without fear of being alone.

IMHO Woodward has been sending not so subliminal messages to Obama to back off of his Marxist charge or Woodward will Nixon him. There is more here than meets the untrained eye.

Maybe Bob should add another notch in his Presidential Resignation notebook..............

I think this is a major mistake on the part of the White House. Attack Bob Woodward? He is a living, breathing Liberal Hero! Very hard for the Lib's to brush Bob off as a crazy racist.

Bob must have thousands of sources in the Government who look up him as a hero and some may want to 'drop the dime'!

Time to buy more popcorn............

This should light a fire under Woodward’s feet. He shouldn’t take this laying down.. Or whatever the saying is. LOL Now if we could only find that Bernstein dude and get a book out detailing ALL of 0bama’s felonies and other crimes, starting with his birth certificate, ss, ssc, then onto impeachable offenses while in office.

Sure was a fast trip between “We’ve seen plenty of lying in a certain recent President” to “Madness of a kind we haven’t seen for some time.” I wonder if this was the precipitating event?
