The Bully is at it again.

Look at how Barack Hussein Obama became a US Senator. His people went after his opponents on a very personal basis, and destroyed those people.

Look at the campaign tactics of Barack Hussein Obama in his Presidential campaigns. His people took minuscule personal incidents, and then used them to create a false
Perception of that opponent in the public’s eyes that destroyed the other person.

Look at what his people have said with respect to a journalist reporting facts that happen to make Obama out to be the liar that he is. His people are screaming at, and then sending veiled threats to a journalist who is simply trying to tell the American people the truth.

This is standard operating procedure for this White House and the Teleprompter-Reader-In-Chief. They will do whatever it takes to destroy the opposing viewpoint. Threats, lies, intimidation…whatever it takes.

Elections have consequences.

Journalist Woodward tangles with White House over spending cuts

By Mark Felsenthal

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- A prominent Washington journalist said in interviews on Wednesday a senior White House official warned him he would "regret" publishing a story challenging the White House's account of how the idea for automatic spending cuts originated.

Bob Woodward said in interviews with Politico and CNN that when he informed the White House he was writing a story critical of the White House's handling of a debate over the origin of the cuts, known as sequestration, the official reacted angrily.

The aide "yelled at me for about a half hour," Woodward told Politico, and then followed up the tirade with an email.

"I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today," the official wrote Woodward. "You're focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here.... I think you will regret staking out that claim."

Politico reported that Woodward saw the statement as a veiled threat.

yes, your team leader, at the youth camp for liberalism 101 - stated, we have a black muslim in the white house. Why can'nt liberals embrace the fact they voted for a socialist muslim ? Reality is both Republicans and your liberal socialist dictator voted for the cuts on March 1, so live with it !!

Yet another shining example of this administrations use of Chicago "mob" style dirty politics. As the saying goes, if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit. Or find a way to discredit them.

The Huffington Post says that Woodward "misconstrued that apology into some sort of weird Gangland fantasia."

On Twitter, Obama adviser David Plouffe suggested that Woodward — who along with Carl Bernstein grew famous for coverage of the Watergate scandal during the Nixon administration — was past his prime.

"Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated," he tweeted Wednesday evening.

About an hour later, he followed up: "Interesting response to last tweet. Like many I was shaped by Woodward writing and books. ATPM [All the President's Men] was perfection. But this latest skirmish off."

The latest "skirmish" has made Woodard, "once Public Enemy No. 1 to a generation of Republicans, the unlikely darling of the right wing," according to Politico.

Isn't that amazing.

According to a low information voter, one of the journalistic mouthpieces for Obama know as the Huffington Post says that an award winning and well respected journalist misunderstood the apology - and that the threat wasn't really a threat.

Would anyone expect anything different coming from either the Huffington Post or the low information voter?

I certainly would not. They will both lie to cover up the lies and threats of their Messiah.

So if you post a topic four different times it becomes more relevant in your eyes????

All four are full of your lies, like usual.

Do I believe Woodward - who happens to be the one who was yelled at by the White House staffer, the same staffer who later tried to apolozige and post a veiled threat within that e-mail apology?

Or do I believe the Huffington Post - which is nothing more than a blatant mouthpiece for the Obama Administration and will even lie (remember the waitress stiffed by the banker on a tip) to make Obama's opposition look bad?

I believe the journalist with 40 years of dealing with Democrat and Republican Administrations rather than the on-line media rag that pimps for the President on a daily basis.

You REALLY need some made up quotes or BS interpretations.. I know criticism Hertz, but it leads to improvement, rather than Faux parroting, like the moniker mixing putz ~!! LMAOROTFU~!

Btw- Which presidential poll "did you believe" ??? Oh right, how did THAT WORK OUT !?? LMAOROTFU~!

I believe that if one is going to accuse someone else of lying in numerous threads, one should provide some real evidence of said lying or STFU.
But that's just me.

Lying about what? It's more like he is putting the truth out there and "you can't handle the truth".

Woodward needs SS protection. ChicagoLand enforcement stops at nothing.

We are dealing with a dictator president with Hitler style Gestapo enforcers in place. USA is in fact changing NOT for the better.
