Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated.

Too bad his boss will ALWAYS BE in the minor league of U.S. Presidents.

Woodward is right. The Obama’s and his minions are a bunch of lying, cowardly b@st@rds.

FYI, Plouffe officially left the Obama admin last month, but he still bills himself as part of the team.

Plouffe adds more:

Interesting response to last tweet. Like many I was shaped by Woodward writing and books. ATPM was perfection. But this latest skirmish off (ATPM=All the President's Men, Woodstein's book about the Watergate scandal.

Eric Boehler is doing this too. I wonder how many more on the JournOlist will go on the offensive.

Woodstein was beltway slang for Woodward and Bernstein. They were sort of joined at the hip during Watergate and co-authored the book.

It’s no coincidence that the current administration rolled up like 160 NYC Mob guys in one sweep during the first year in office.
That was the Chicago mob taking over territory.

Because in a dark parking lot Woodward wouldn’t be able to hear Sperling talk, which is all this was about. /s

He is much more clever than Nixon. Nixon was a self-doubter. This guy is like an Arab. He thinks that just because he says something, it becomes true.

I know that Google puts me on and off their warning list. Mostly because they don’t like the links to The Daily Caller or Ammo Land.

Nothing wrong with the site or that page. Just FYI. Norton just parrots the Google warnings. When Google finally puts up the red screen of death and everyone complains about having to remove the block, I take the links out. It is a total pain and a lot of work. :(

I’m just hoping Woodward has the biggest ego ever, and all the piling on incites him to do something of value.

Eric B, what an a**, he harassed Breitbart for years - it was pathetic.

Insult tactics and threats to silence any dissent of those who aren't going with the WH regurgitated talking points. Deviate from Obama's script and you become an Alinsky tactic target. All aimed at what should be a 'Free Press' in the United States of America.

First Amendment to the United States Constitution

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Congress made no law so they're good there. But the press is going to voluntarily carry most of the water on Woodward's destruction. Dollars to donuts Chrissie Matthews denounces him in some way within the next ten days.

Breitbart’s passing was one year ago this Friday.

Mr. Woodward is being put through the Chicago machine Alinsky spin cycle right now.

In Memorium Mr. B.:

“The Vetting, Part I: Barack’s Love Song To Alinsky”

Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects—but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.

“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.

Why the fuss???
Woodward is just another in a long line of allies-turned-enemies of the Obamunist state.

An example must be made of him, to keep the other media-types in line. All hail the Messiah, or else.
