Highlights from Full Interview: THIS IS A RUSH FDCH TRANSCRIPT. IT MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED. BOLDUAN: What do you make of the White House's response to your article?
WOODWARD: Well, I think they're confused. I think they've got this idea. I mean, they put out these long talking points and said, see, even Woodward's book reports that Speaker Boehner said, let's get $600 billion over ten years in revenue in the super committee. That's exactly right. That's not the sequester. And they've said - they have,as you know, I said, get somebody from the White House here, and we'll debate.
BLITZER: We invited the White House to send someone here, to debate this issue with you, and they declined.
WOODWARD: Why? Why? Because it's irrefutable; that's exactly what happened. I'm not saying this is a moving of the goalposts that was some criminal act or something like that, I'm just saying, that's

The White House is turning psychotic
Obamas psychotic behavior began a long time ago. It takes bob wooda coulda shouldaz to make me believe it now? Actually, I used to care. I take a pill for that now.
“The White House is turning psychotic”
Obozo has been psychotic from the day he was born.
Sperling doesn’t issue the threat without the big guy’s knowledge, if not approval.
The Night Chicago Died
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM TOTALITARIANS??????? you USELESS propagandist POS. Sponge Bob has more cred.
they’re not getting my guns
Off topic, but I clicked the link and one feature was Amanpour in Rome. That woman is NOT aging well.
I think even some democrats are starting to get nervous, but yet will take awhile before they react.
The news organizations will turn before they do.
Woodward.....30 day left.

We can wonder about Woodward being threatened by top govt officials, or I can just write a book about the last three years of my life.
” one feature was Amanpour in Rome. That woman is NOT aging well.”
I saw her y’day and said the same thing.
Her ‘stash still looks well groomed though.
Ever so slowly, the media is beginning to realize that there is a monster in the White House.
We all get old.
She was detestable before that.
Looks like Woodward might have the balls to send the rest of the media in search of their own. We’ll see.
In any case this White House does not have a clue about how to handle a truly inquisitive, persistent press corps. If in their ham-handedness the WH pushes the press into hostility it is going to get interesting ... and people might just start to read and listen to the media again.
Heh! God bless James and the crew. I pray for his, and his crew’s, safety. We are living in incredibly dangerous times.
Let’ just say she would never have been hired by Fox ;)
Looks like Woodward might have the balls to send the rest of the media in search of their own. Well see.
I always have hope.......but I am soooooo cynical. The media is ‘bought and paid for’. Like a bunch of whores.
