re: Bob Woodward on Wolf Blitzer: WH threatened him


The politico article is pretty interesting.. The "threat" is pretty weak and is going to be blown out of proportion in relation to Woodward but his point of bringing it forward has more to do with a sense that many in journalism, especially thoughs with less experience, are weak and would cave on actually doing their job thoroughly if presented with such an email.

What I found even more damning is his point that he doesn't understand Obama and his tactics. Instead of dealing with the people he's suppossed to work with, he runs around campaigning when he isn't running for anything. Obama doesn't seem to understand the job and how the Government
works within the frameworks set forth.

Name me an administration that has not gotten into a tiff with a journalist. That's all I see unless Woodward has anything else to say. Obviously, it's not a very nice way to act by saying that but I really don't see any smoke here.

That's who immediately came to mind. I keep hearing rumors that she can be quite aggressive.

She will declare a fatwah on him.

The media won't defend him. They'll destroy him. They are empowered by riding their king's coattails, not by speaking truth to power. That's why they got pissed over being locked out of a fricking golf game instead of the type of scandals that made Woodward famous.

You wouldn't see the smoke if the barn burned down on you.

Yeah, said senior staffer said he would 'regret' it. BW was pressed but didn't name names.


He doesn't have to, it's Valerie Jarrett, she's the only person that is lower, more evil and disgusting than Zero

i DEFEND Obama and liberals often. I dislike when people take things out of context or misunderstand / misrepresent the positions


With Obama things are blatantly clear. There is nothing to take out of context. Possibly defend him because he golfs and vacations a lot. But what is the defense while people lose jobs, struggle like hell to pay their mortgages and cannot afford gas and grocery bills? A Vacation makes him look like shallow Hal with zero honor or character.

It is so painstakingly obvious the media and democrats want their ideology at all costs. We no longer have a normal media we can trust. What is to defend, when there is a state run media? I have tried on this forum to abridge with the liberals and discuss all of them needing to be fired including the idiotic republicans. All's the liberals want is their politics over country. There is no fricking defense of that.

It is no longer about that. Obama is acting above the law and does nothing but lie. WTF is there to defend?

I am not directing this at you. But it is all beyond someone being objective anymore, it is war.
Culture warfare,class warfare. America is being thrown away. Anyone that defends this garbage is garbage to me.

Ask Juan Williams about that treatment.

These frickers are vicious. And they do eat their own.

He doesn't.

He didn't understand it when he was a candidate,

After four years of OTJT he still doesn't have a clue.

All Obama can do is rabble rouse. He can stoke up the radicals and the mal-informed. He is snake oil salesman.

When confronted with a requirement to lead, he plays golf and goes out to smear his opponents.

F Obama.

Bob Woodward has taken down a President.

If they talk to him like this, how must they talk to reporters that haven't taken down a President?

He's a community organizer. That's what he was when he was elected, that's what he is now.

I'm not so sure that it's a matter of him "not understanding the job" more than it is him simply seeing the job as something quite different than what Americans have traditionally seen it to be.

That's precisely their point.

Threaten somebody deemed untouchable, and it intimidates the lesser lights. Keeps them in line.

I can predict how the libs I know will react. They honestly think Obama and the people he surround himself are above being dirty. It's almost like battered spouse syndrome and if Woodward did get warned, he obviously did something to deserve it.

This.

His views on the Constitution and it's role in our society are a matter of record. There's no reason to believe he'd feel any different about the Presidency.

Hell, we've got a poster in this thread alone who pretty clearly feels that way.
