Posted on 02/27/2013 5:26:37 PM PST by RobinMasters
Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekends Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obamas account of how sequestration came about - and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide yelled at me for about a half hour, Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washingtons powerful have spilled their secrets.
Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today, the official typed. Youre focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. I think you will regret staking out that claim.
Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat. Youll regret. Come on, he said. I think if Obama himself saw the way theyre dealing with some of this, he would say, Whoa, we dont tell any reporter youre going to regret challenging us.

Woodward at war? What a Politico pantload. The White House is declaring war on Woodward for him trying to actually doing his job.
I think if Obama himself saw the way theyre dealing with some of this, he would say, Whoa, we dont tell any reporter youre going to regret challenging us.
Bob, you still don’t get it, if it was said, Obama
wanted it said.
Oh, if Stalin only knew about the arrests...
name the source, bob
post the transcripts in their entirety, bob
send me that e-mail, bob.
we already know the poison is in the well
Hey Bob, You ever hear of Ft Marcy Park?
What is it that Obama is using Woodward to distract us from?
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM TOTALITARIANS??????? you USELESS propagandist POS.
A new gun grab.
An indication of just how deep so called "journalists" are in Obama's pocket: Now they're calling the White Hut in advance of publishing a story that would be perceived negatively. Did somebody at the WaPo call the Nixon White House in advance of Watergate stories? Did Dan Rather warn GW Bush he was going to release a "fake but accurate" story about the TANG? Did The National Enquirer call Clinton's to warn them?

Names, Bob, or didn’t happen.
The release of illegals with serious criminal backgrounds.
Gene Sperling, according to buzzfeed
Thanks. I don’t know that name. Woodward needs to verify it though. It’s his accusation.
That's why the Obama admin started backing their hyssteria truck up quite rapidly today after the word impeachable offense was thrown out on talk radio.

Thanks, yes that and probably more.

[Not that it'll happen, the White House is just getting jittery, like a cautious gambler on a too good to be true run of luck.]
Funny thing is, the administration apparently said the illegals released were not criminal, "just illegal."
So while pretending to know nothing of the release they somehow claim they knew the backgrounds of all those released were not criminal. Then they acted as if some low level employee at ICE just up and let them go without getting permission or letting admin lawyers have a crack at the idea.
Then the NY Times reported that one had a background of rape and child abuse, or something like that, which is anything but petty or noncriminal. Haven't seen the article.
cracks are starting to appear in the bubble that kept Obama popular with the media and sheeple. This is the opening salvo that will bring down the Progressives. Too much rope... too much power—arrogance and evil always do in an oppressive government. The end of the trilogy is starting. It will not end well for Obama. Obama isn’t out yet...but the opera is coming to an end-—the many small people will be singing soon and the fat lady (Hillary?) is about to put on her horned helmet and sing the last aria. Pop the popcorn folks and be ready—we are in for a ride.
