Veteran journalist Bob Woodward slams Obama's budget cut 'madness'

Feb 27, 2013 Full story: New York Post 292

Journalist Bob Woodward on Wednesday criticized Barack Obama's handling of the automatic U.S. budget cuts set to take effect this week, calling the president's decision to hold back on military deployments "madness."

He needs to leave the liberal plantation from time
to time to even CALL himself a journalist.
Don't worry. He is back-in-the-fold as we speak.

Yep, because he was warned by the KING, that he was in the cross hairs!!!

Any bets on how long it will be, before Woodward dies from a heart attack???

1 week or 2???

It's now reported on CNN that Woodward was threatened by a senior white house official that he would regret this. We can only hope that the MSM will finally begin investigating the most corrupt and least transparent administration in the last 100 years.

The SequestrationShow will be like the State of the Union Event when the Supreme Court was pointed to and blamed for Americas criminal doctors.
This stage is set, he has returned from vacation and campaigned on the pain he & Reid will bring to the poor people.

I don't think Woodward said budget cuts are maddness. I think Woodward said not sending a carrier to the middle east and releasing 500 illegal criminals was maddness. I agree. Obama is an idealogue, a communist, and a dipshit. But he is now King of America and will be for many decades to come. Better get used to it. We are now no better off than Syria or North Korea.

The WhiteHouse/Nancy/Reid has been priming the pump for violence in the streets with every ‘deadline’.
This FiscalCliff may become the bump in the road and it will be,‘They’ who lose big.
The WhiteHouse holds the pain button on this issue, and it is his choice to make the voters bleed.

Yep, the ignorance of Obama is overwhelmingly recognized. It cannot be concealed any longer. He has totally ignored the advice of more intelligent advisers and has made his own mark in the sand for which he will not retreat.

Impeachment proceedings MUST be initiated before this pretender of understanding of economics sinks our entire nation.

Funny how they are all "decent journalists" until they write a negative story on That Man.

Then they are right wing tools.

Loved Babbling Bob's "threat" story, which was refuted this morning:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/28/bob-...

White House e-mail:

"..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 ... My apologies again for raising my voice on the call with you. Feel bad about that and truly apologize."

Woodward reply:

"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."

Wow, a brutal threat by Gene Sperling there, Bob!

LOL

Woodward at war
Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about — and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half-hour,” Woodward told us in an hourlong interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets.
Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill.“I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed.“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.”
Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat.“‘You’ll regret.’ Come on,” he said.“I think if Obama himself saw the way they’re dealing with some of this, he would say,‘Whoa, we don’t tell any reporter ‘you’re going to regret challenging us.’”

Ignored him, you don't say.

It's almost as though he shares the reputation of Geraldo Rivera- unidentified and fabricated sources.

The same television new station with several hosts and several radio and print hosts names spieled every day by progressives. Why the same progressive side has an encyclopedia full of people pushing the agendas everyday. The agendas need to have others pay for it. At times in America's history, when the cup was not so full, she pulled back a little until it brimmed to the top again. But not these clowns. The forward push must continue. And it will end like the Bataan death march.
