Is Someone At The White House Threatening Bob Woodward?

February 27, 2013

And more to the point, would you be surprised if they were?

You see earlier today, Woodward made some comments about Obama and the sequester that has liberals going bonkers…

BOB WOODWARD: Obama Is Showing ‘A Kind Of Madness I Haven’t Seen In A Long Time’

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on “Morning Joe” today, saying he’s exhibiting 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.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?'” Woodward said.

“Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need?'” Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ … because of some budget document?”

The Defense Department said in early February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the sequester.

“Under the Constitution, the President is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the President going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement. ‘I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country,'” Woodward said.

“That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time,” he said.

See, the problem with that is that Woodward is acting like a journalist rather than the boot licking sops the Obama White House is used to dealing with in the media.

At 5:40 PM tonight, Steve Krakauer of CNN tweeted the following…

Anyone find that hard to believe? No? Me either.

Here’s the video of Woodward’s comments this morning.

UPDATE I:

Woodward confirms…

BOB WOODWARD: A ‘Very Senior’ White House Person Warned Me I’d ‘Regret’ What I’m Doing

Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.

What a charming group of thugs we have running things these days.

UPDATE II: Here’s Woodward on CNN. He must feel like he’s in the wayback machine.

    So, welcome to the club; this is the M.O. we’ve seen deployed repeatedly: destroy, destroy, destroy. And, Bill Kristol? Please. I tend to use his opinions as a nuclear meter; whatever he says is almost certainly back asswards.

    So,I wonder what Valerie Jarrett will do now that Woodward has essentially turned ‘real reporter’on her?
