Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward claims he was threatened by a member of the Obama administration after Woodward had the temerity to criticize Dear Leader about the sequester.
Hmm, I’m old enough to remember when liberals worshiped the man who helped bring down Richard Nixon.
Bob Woodward said on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email 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.
“It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,’” Woodward said.
The White House aide who Woodward said threatened him was Gene Sperling, the director of the White House Economic Council.
Earlier 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.
It is madness, because Obama is (again) using scare tactics against the low-information voters. During the sequester, federal spending will decrease by a total of 1.2%.
But the “president” wants you to believe this minor cut in spending will result in sexually transmitted diseases, deforestation, and irreversibly progressive depletion of the global gene pool. It all adds up to oblivion, pal. Governments will fall, anarchies will reign. (Guess the film quote.)
Either way, the “president’s” bullsh*t is just that; bullsh*t. That’s why he’s threatening people like Bob Woodward. Oh, and apparently, the Woodward incident is not an isolated one.
