Barack Obama, our next President

The Liberal Media has been pushing a Narrative that the Presidents hands are Tied!! The inconvenient fact that completely undermines the Narrative Propaganda currently emanating from the White House and its media about the dire, world-ending, economy-crashing, dangerous sequester cuts!! Well folks Obama have the authority to choose what is and is not cut!!The question should be…. will Obama step up and finally show Leadership or will he continue to play Politics with Americans Life’s?

Behold Movement Conservatism's Information Disadvantage: Chuck Hagel Edition

His confirmation was widely anticipated. Yet Jennifer Rubin and other neocons repeatedly published analysis that led their readers astray.

Once again, the conservative media, where non-conservative journalists are constantly maligned, has been thoroughly outperformed on this metric: Who best equipped readers to anticipate the outcome that actually happened? That isn't the only important metric in journalism, or even the most important, but failing at it so spectacularly surely demands some introspection.

A fairly significant "brain fart" for a presidential candidate.
McCain or Romney would have been laughed at and ridiculed out of town if either had said that on the campaign trail.

Nice try, but FAIL DEBIL.

I didn't post this to carol.

You did.

You also wrote the "SapphireBlue" post "enclosed" < Below >.

And carol is quite capable of helping herself.

All she needs to do is register.

Talk about "STOP" ... Stop being so afraid of carol's voice of opposition < which is why you, demwit and leosa$$inine, along with other liberals, viciously attack her >. FEAR. You're pathetic.

And change that Screen Name from SapphireBlue to JanetBlew !!!

Since you've already used the "Janet" part in one of your Screen Names not so long ago.

In which the Obama administration threatened to send Bob Woodward to a gulag for thought crimes

But if you spend twenty seconds reading the email in question, it couldn't be more obvious that Bob Woodward is completely full of it:

Bob:

I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. My bad. I do understand your problems with a couple of our statements in the fall — but feel on the other hand that you focus on a few specific trees that gives a very wrong perception of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here.

But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.

The full email is here. Woodward's response?

Gene: You do not ever have to apologize to me. You get wound up because you are making your points and you believe them. This is all part of a serious discussion. I for one welcome a little heat; there should more given the importance. I also welcome your personal advice. I am listening. I know you lived all this. My partial advantage is that I talked extensively with all involved. I am traveling and will try to reach you after 3 pm today. Best, Bob

So not only was Sperling's email heavier on the apology than on the threats (more specifically, there was an apology, but not a threat), Woodward clearly interpreted it as such. Indeed, he said he "welcomed it." But then he went running to other media outlets to claim he was the target of a White House political attack. The first of those outlets, Politico, failed to report the "as a friend" portion of Sperling's email, nor did they mention Woodward's cheerful reply. CNN was breathlessly intrigued as well. The net result was that there was a political hit job going on: but it was Woodward who was leading it.

Oh, and you know what else? Woodward was wrong. But so was Sperling, because Woodward clearly doesn't regret that fact. He should....

Somewhere in Moscow tonight, Vladimir Putin saw that Bob Woodward was sent a threatening message from the White House...and he smiled.

No, but those who publicly admit child molestation, as did Frightwingers/GOPidiots, most definitely are.

Unless, of course, they are liars trying to impress their pedophile friends.

No issue in programs teaching religion.

Seriously, WTF is Up With Bob Woodward?

....Woodward responded the next day that Sperling had no need to apologize. "I for one welcome a little heat; there should [be] more given the importance."

Some threat, huh? As a friend put it via email, "It's odd that a reporter who you would have to assume has had many run-ins, shouting matches, accusations, etc. would go public with his perceived slights. I can't imagine a junior reporter taking this tack now and not being chastised for mishandling it."

Something very odd is going on with Woodward. The point of Sperling's email is clear: he's not taking issue with the idea that the White House proposed the sequester, but he does think Woodward is wrong to say that both sides agreed the sequester substitute would be purely spending cuts with no tax increases. Virtually everyone in Washington agrees that Woodward is wrong about that, yet he's been repeating that line for the past week in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary.

What's more, Sperling quite clearly didn't threaten Woodward, and Woodward didn't take it as a threat at the time. Again: WTF?

The extremely left-wing Los Angeles Times explains in 1999 that the CRA was passed to force banks to make risky loans.
Under Clinton, bank regulators have breathed the first real life into enforcement of the Community Reinvestment Act, a 20-year-old statute meant to combat “redlining” by requiring banks to serve their low-income communities. The administration also has sent a clear message by stiffening enforcement of the fair housing and fair lending laws.

In 1992, Congress mandated that Fannie and Freddie increase their purchases of mortgages for low-income and medium-income borrowers. Operating under that requirement, Fannie Mae, in particular, has been aggressive and creative in stimulating minority gains… Fannie Mae has agreed to buy more loans with very low down payments–or with mortgage payments that represent an unusually high percentage of a buyer’s income. That’s made banks willing to lend to lower-income families they once might have rejected.
The extremely left-wing New York Times noted in 1999 that the GSEs gave out the risky loans under duress from Democrat Bill Clinton.
Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.
In addition, banks, thrift institutions and mortgage companies have been pressing Fannie Mae to help them make more loans to so-called subprime borrowers. These borrowers whose incomes, credit ratings and savings are not good enough to qualify for conventional loans, can only get loans from finance companies that charge much higher interest rates — anywhere from three to four percentage points higher than conventional loans.
According to the New York Times in 2003, George W. Bush tried to stop the Democrats from ruining the economy with these forced loans. He was blocked by Democrats like Barney Frank.
The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.

”These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”
Omg not the CRA excuse.

You right whiners get dumber every fricken day of your lying miserable anti-American lives.

The CRA said banks had to make a effort to sell mortgages in their communities to those who could not quite afford the standard rates. They were offered lower rates or lower down payments but they still had to prove they could make those payments.

The CRA had very little to do with the recession.

The only thing the CRA provided was a scape goat for dumbass right whiners searching for something to blame instead of looking in the mirror at their own party.

But__he actually did sign NAFTA into law.
NAFTA was a Republican initiative all the way and a Bush I pet project, it was going to become law whether Clinton signed it or not but Clinton saw value in the agreement too.
It became a textbook example for unintended consequences.

Woodward is under the Obama bus, according to lapdogs like sonicfilter.

But Woodward has more credibility than Obama, so the jury is still out.

Other members of the White House steno pool, formerly called reporters, are cowering in fear.
