You're ok with any administration limiting access for showing disagreement?


It's their prerogative to give special access to who they want. If the admin thinks that Woodward has been misstating their positions then they are free to limit his access.

Sigh, let me know when this Administration outs Woodward's wife as a CIA operative


Yeah, some "outing".

Valerie Plame was such a "covert operative" that within weeks after her "outing", she was cavorting all over the pages of "Vanity Fair". Kind of strange behavior for some sort of female James Bond, huh? I mean, she was in such fear for her life and safety, that she rushed out and put a face with the name. Outed, my ass.

Yet you continue to respond to my posts


Yeah, I've got a bad habit of not turning away from train wrecks, too.

If it were anything more than that I'm sure Woodward would let us know


Seems to me he was just quoting what was told him. Of course I'm not blessed with such hyper-enlightened sensibilities as you, with the ability to discern the true meaning and gist of all such scenarios.

So you'll feel the exact same way if a Republican administration does the same to ABC/CBS/NBC in the future right?

Despite the fact she wasn't a deep cover operative, what does that have to do with the price of egg rolls in China?


She was under non-official cover (NOC - remember the NOC list in Mission Impossible I) even though she was not in the field at the time. Her cover was completely blown.

A representative from the POTUS telling a reporter 'they will be sorry', is a threat.


1) Just let a Tea Party member tell a gay rights activist that he will be sorry if he keeps doing something....suddenly, there will be demands for blood.


2) i DEFEND Obama and liberals often. I dislike when people take things out of context or misunderstand / misrepresent the positions.....but, Decatur is really disappointing me with this hackery.

He got them to admit the sequester idea came from the White House. I know, facts are stubborn.



This is the article the WH must be pissed about.

That's not what I asked. I asked if you were ok with a repeated journalist being restricted for simply disagreeing.

shite man I can't even get anyone here to tell me what this "threat" it

If it's not important enough that Woodward won't say publicly what was said to him then this is much about nothing IMO. If this means Woodward won't be given access to the President's inner circle then I'm sure Woodward can find other sources. Woodward will be fine in that case.

Please tell me you are not dragging up Valerie Plame partisan crap.

Please take off your Obama loving glasses and wake up.

You are not this dumb.

So, I am done with you on this issue.

You may pretend to be some poor sap that just can't see what the hub-bub is about. But, I don't have to entertain it.


See you in another thread. I do respect you...most times. This is a case of silliness. I have little use for it.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it if this is the case. It's every admin's prerogative to give access to who they want to.

If its retaliation, we have a shitty presidential administration. I doubt you will ever come to grips with that, however.

When discussing politics, most of us lose sight of that line. You clearly have in this case.
