"You don't go around trying to say to reporters
'you're going to regret this'...
...makes me very uncomfortable"
But when this morally-warped megalomaniac ALWAYS gets his way by hectoring Republicans, the media, or anybody else in the way, where's the motivator for the guy to ever change?
Obama also thinks he owns the press, and I guess he's mostly right there- yet pride cometh before the fall: Rule #1 if you're going to pick a fight would be 'know what you're getting into'-
and maybe -just maybe- famed Washington Post investigative reporter Bob Woodward wasn't the one to screw with, huh-
Mr Woodward is of course currently engaged in -and winning- a very public debate with the White House, and came out with a scathing indictment yesterday of Obama Administration disinformation and reckless fiscal brinkmanship ("madness"), i.e. delaying military deployments (before the sequester even hits) due to the 'budgetary situation'.
These stunts are pure propaganda stagecraft designed to pressure Republicans into making a deal (on Obama's terms), since hitting the sequester deadline with no real catastrophes materializing -and current White House charades exposed- would be the worst possible thing that could happen in 'progressive' eyes (betraying the fact this country can survive
-even prosper- with a few cuts here and there).
Indeed, the increasingly skeptical Woodward -one of the few old-school journalists left in DC who actually attempt to do their job instead of just licking Obama's ass all the time- seems genuinely shocked by this administration's escalating lawlessness, underhanded maneuvering, media manipulation, and habitual dishonesty, all of which could be summed-up as a lack of good faith/duty/loyalty towards anything (or anybody) but themselves.
Bob Woodward: 'Color me a bit baffled...I don't understand this White House- do you?'
When Woodward attempted to call and give the WH a heads-up that he was going to question some of the Administration's statements and assumptions re. sequester in his WaPo column, the reporter said the same WH 'senior' staffer that later threatened him "yelled at me for about an hour".
The reason for all the anxiety? Seems Obama was initially successful -as he too often is- at getting the country to believe the Republicans were at fault for Friday's looming deadline, when the idea for sequester initially sprang from his own sinister mind.
Unfortunately for Obummer, DC press legend Bob Woodward knew the truth, as he wrote about the 2011 deal that brought us to a mandatory sequester mechanism in his 2012 book. And he just blew to smithereens a fairy tale Obama worked quite hard to create -had over half the country bamboozled into thinking that the GOP was to blame (accordingly, they need to cave on new taxes)- exposing the serial prevaricator yet again.
Uh, isn't this the sort of thing Boehner and Musty Mitch ought to be doing?
Clearly the Obama regime is getting nervous as the sequester deadline draws near, and it seems that this -in combination with towering hubris- got them to thinking they could threaten and intimidate Bob Woodward into silence because his sole voice dared speak the truth.
Of course they cannot, and Woodward was on CNN within hours to talk about it. The only question now would be WHO is the White House SENIOR staffer that thinks he's Sammy The Bull?
