BOB WOODWARD: A 'Very Senior' White House Person Warned Me I'd 'Regret' What I'm Doing (on CNN)
Business Insider ^ | 2/2713 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 02/27/2013 4:17:16 PM PST by Clint N. Suhks

Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him that he would "regret doing this," the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined. "I think they're confused," Woodward said of the White House's pushback on his reporting.

Earlier today on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Woodward ripped into Obama in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington Post journalist and the White House. Woodward said Obama was showing a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time" for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.

The Defense Department said in early February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the sequester.

"Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, 'Oh, by the way, I can't do this because of some budget document?'" Woodward said on MSNBC.

As Obama spins more and more into megalomania, how soon will people start getting the mafia treatment?

How sad a prominent member of what use to be a reliable media has to carry the Republican’s water for them. And by the way, he hates Republicans because he found out about a dishonest one who thought he was above the law. Wonder if he has drawn the parallel of what he saw then and what he sees now?

No longer content with passing himself off as Lincoln or Roosevelt, Comrade Uncle Barry now fancies himself as Comrade Uncle Joe Stalin.

Hmmmmm, after Woodward is disappeared I wonder if they’ll write out Watergate from the history books.

Woodward is looney the President does not care any more for the budget than he does any random Aircraft Carrier..

WHY?... Cause there IS NO BUDGET... and hasn’t been a budget since he took office..
The Senate refuses to even debate or entertain an ACTUAL budget..

The House passes one every year.. but it gets trash canned in the Senate..
There NO BUDGET.. zero.. nada.. zilch.. nothing..

SO then where is the MONEY coming from?..
Well thats a good question.. should be NO MONEY..
MAGIC money... thats where it comes from.. i.e. OBAMA money..

I think Woodward sees Nixon in Obama. From the Morning Joe interview, check out the last bit:

Woodward: Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’ Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s 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 can’t do what I need to do to protect the country. That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.

You bet this is a big deal. It's called a threat. I'm sure Woodward has taken additional action to protect himself.

It's too bad that Bob Woodward and the other talking heads of the left-wing media establishment are finally "discovering" that Barack Obama is a lying sack of sh!t ... three and a half months after the election.

I wonder when they'll realize that Obama's boys were running a secret war out of the White House basement, with weapons routed from Benghazi to rebels in Syria, a la Oliver North and Iran-Contra. And I wonder what they'll say when they realize it.

Bob Woodward will "sometimes" be a journalist. But honestly he's often caught making things up, like when he records people's private conversations, or even thoughts.

I'm glad he sees SOMETHING about obama to report on.

But too little, too late.

Where has he been for the last 4 years?

And where is Carl Bernstein?

How come Bob is always working on some scoop, but Carl hasn't made any kind of news "splash" in years?
