Veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward spoke out about the sequester by saying Ostupid was showing a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time" for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.

He has been critical of the way the WH has tried to scare the public with rhetoric we haven't seen in decades. He makes it clear that the sequester was Ostupid's idea from the beginning and that tax increases were never part of it as Ostupid is now claiming.

Now the WH is pushing back by having someone call Woodward and yelling at him for a half hour and telling him he will "regret" doing this.

Didn't Richard Nixon to the same thing to Woodward?

"But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about 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 idea that the sequester was to force both sides to go back to try at a big or grand barain with a mix of entitlements and revenues (even if there were serious disagreements on composition) was part of the DNA of the thing from the start. It was an accepted part of the understanding from the start."

Actually quote from the email.

The original sequestration plan did not include a tax increase. Now there is. What would the WH call it?

You were whining about the threat. There was no threat as you can see yourself. I was responding to the whine...

I don't think of it as winning or losing. More like information to ponder. There really aren't many media outlets not signed on to the presidents agenda. These little vignettes offer an explanation as to why. You can throw in Maxine Waters' "He's got everything on everyone." comment if you like. It just doesn't seem like our Bill of Rights has any meaning at all to you and your president. I say your president because he seems to be attacking my values on a daily basis and I am ashamed of his behavior.

I'm not a fan of any political party or celebrity. Both major parties are only interested in increasing their personal wealth and power with few exceptions.
