'You'll live to regret this,' an senior official told him

Conservative sites are hailing Bob Woodward as a hero for pinning the sequester blame on Obama, and in response the White House has gone all Cosa Nostra on the famed political reporter.

On Tuesday evening Woodward revealed that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him that he would "you're going to regret this" "this" being Woodward's continued condemnation of Obama's handling of the sequester.

Why exactly would the White House be so unnerved by Woodward? It might be because on Tuesday morning, the reporter told Morning Joe viewers that Obama was displaying a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time."

By "madness," Woodward meant the Defense Dept's decision not to send an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of the budget cuts. "Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying,'Oh, by the way, I can't do this because of some budget document?'" said Woodward. "Or George W. Bush saying,'You know, I'm not going to invade Iraq because I can't get the aircraft carriers I need?'"

Liberals and conservatives naturally have very different takes on the Woodward-White House War. It's "an incredible case of the White House attempting to bully the most iconic reporter of the 20th century" according to Breitbart. Daily Kos users are more succinct: "F*ck you Bob Woodward," screams the headline on the most-recommended blog post at the site.

I'm starting to suspect that the white house has been taken over by scientologists. On the other hand, maybe I just need to be audited for thetas.

This is the guy that busted out the Watergate scandal. Obama is worried about getting his lies reported on and having the scandals come to light. Obama has been getting a free pass. Now they are screaming "How dare you criticize the President!"
Next they will accuse Woodward of being racist!

The Obumma administration might go down in flames as fast as Cuomo. These liberal politicians are letting their heads get bigger than their skinny necks can handle.
The sooner the better. I would even take Biden over Obozo.

It's shameful how the press, Woodward and a few others notwihstanding, give Obama a free pass. Look at MSNBC, they might as well call that " the OBAMA news channel". There's nothing objective about their reporting. As far as they are concerned Obama is akin to Jesus Christ. Well, there are alternative news sources and anyone who takes the time to do some reading, and think critically, can see what a disaster Obama is. And little Andy Cuomo is no better. He too is a bully and a dictator. Glad to see people are waking up to that fact.

A few reporters are liable to go missing or be found dead.

Wouldn't surpise me,would it you?,didn't think so. Heck if the Clintons were still in the WH you can bet that a few reporters would be missing by now,think Vince Foster.

It's shameful how the press, Woodward and a few others notwihstanding, blast Obama just because he's black. Look at FOX, they might as well call that " the fringe right news channel". There's nothing objective about their reporting. As far as they are concerned republicans are akin to Jesus Christ. Well, there are alternative news sources and anyone who takes the time to do some reading, and think critically, can see what a disaster congress is. And little Marco Rubio is no better. He too is a bully and a dictator. Glad to see people are waking up to that fact.
