More people should be standing up for taking this Illegal President to court,(turned in his 2009 taxes under another persons’ name,has FAKE SS card,out-dated VISA card,wants to disarm this country and take to the ACCEPTANCE of his European Brotherhood friends,his own statement,has had 4 or more fictitious names,and remember,HE choose this name to run for office), so WHO is this man sitting in our White House ???? I believe he is a Muslim Terrorist, placed in the most power of our Government to take us down from within!
Plus, our Media or our Congress has NO guts to stand up for the people of this country and tell us the truth and IMPEACH this man,ASAP !

“…Woodward claimed Wednesday night that a White House aide sent him an email saying he would “regret” his comments. The aide was not identified, but an official familiar with the exchange told Fox News it was National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling. That was after Woodward wrote a column this past weekend claiming Obama was trying to re-write history — regarding not only whose idea the sequester was, but also how it would take effect…”

Nothing more than the White House using Alinsky tactics to isolate a critic…after all, Obama taught Alinsky’s strategy as a “community organizer” in Chicago, so he’s well versed in the art of bullying.

Posted at Ace’s place in the comments:

On Fox this morning they said the guy who yelled at Woodward was Gene Sperling.

True or not, it appears (based on the uniform assumptions in the comments of this thread) the iranian infiltrator, jarrett, deflects critics with her teflon coated political shield as well.

What is a “National Economic Council Director”? Doesn’t sound like the guy who goes out and gets the mail? wink wink
The fact remains. Bob Woodward was a liberal ‘darling’ until he decided to expose Obama (D), the same way he exposed Nixon (R).

Agreed! Why is he holding onto the memo? That’s what I want to know. A reporter worth his salt would be yellling “Read all about it” from the highest mountain. All we get from Bob is “well I’m not going to say”!? I am skeptical!

Like I said a few hours ago. It’s never wise to expose your sources to a President that has an ‘enemies list’. Something Woodward learned the first time, a few decades ago.
You notice how quickly liberal ‘history’ seems to have forgotten that it was Kennedy (D) and Johnson (D) that created the Viet Nam war and it was Nixon (R) who ended it? wink

I’m “shocked, just shocked” at the White House for threatening Woodward. Woodward should understand by now that if the White House has no use for the Second Amendment, why does he think it has any use for the First, either? The answer is, they don’t, which is why we need to politically fight these tyrants any way we can, at the ballot box and espcially on TV. Perhaps, one day, even the low-information voters out they will see what Woodward is seeing right now, that this administration is more corrupt than Nixon’s.

There are three points to be made: 1) The WH official who rants for 30 minutes and then sends the e-mail saying ‘you will regret this’ is your power-drunk official, who aims to regulate the MSM underhand, so that we get what we’ve all seen: and MSM carrying water for the POS, and clearing up all his lies. This official also lacks in historical knowledge: writing such stuff to Woodward of all people? Bob Woodward? Just another hack? 2) Woodward, sadly, reacts just like all journalists and indeed people have reacted in dictatorships who have been on the receiving end of such acts by officials. He says “If Obama knew” – just like Russians and Germans kept saying ‘If Stalin knew/if Hitler knew’, implying that The Dear Leader doesn’t know and would put a stop to these thing. Well, history has taught us that the various ‘dear leaders’ knew full… Read more »

Woodward is obviously a Democrat. He wrote the piece to “warn” the Bamster.

He’ll write a retraction or, failing that, something “good and nice” about Obama.

I don’t trust Woodward and I trust most in the press even less. They’re a bunch of traitors who have largely promoted Obama and denied us the truth.

I am so sick of hearing from the LameStream, from the liberals, even from some Republicans, and from the population in general that Obama is such a nice guy and all these people under him (his cabinet, his staff, his department heads, his campaign organizers, and on and on) are doing such terrible things without his knowledge. Come on, America. What the H*ll is wrong with us? Why can’t anybody say “Yes, Obama is evil and is fully on board with all these Chicago thugs’ shenanigans”? Let’s come clean and admit that the Emperor has no clothes. Come out and say he is involved. We all know it. Nobody is that stupid. Nobody. If our President, a man who holds the most powerful position in the world, doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on all around him, then we need to get him out of there and get… Read more »

Hey, on the side there’s an ad declaring to tell Sarah Palin to apologize…what’s so funny is that it’s what Mark Levin said on his show several days ago and was posted here by scoop!

You asked me for ‘proof’ in the last ‘Woodward’ topic and I provided you with the similarities between what he did then and what he is doing now. I don’t know if you were around during the ‘Watergate’ days but I was.
The main difference between then and now is that the media then was more than willing to give Woodward and Bernstein’s story the exposure that eventually brought Nixon (R) down. Today, the only media willing to give any exposure to what Woodward is saying about Obama (D), is Fox News and places like this.
Can’t say I noticed the advertisement, (or what bearing it has on this topic). If you want to know if Woodward is going to be on Hannity’s show tomorrow, I can think of one sure fire way to find out. wink

Plenty in the history books. All leftist dictators. All bullies. All willing to whatever it took to cement their own power. Stalin, Mao, Khan, Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Nero. Obama literally is a caricature of every liberal you ever came across. Filled with lots of college classroom theories about how things work, but ZERO private sector experience. Couldn’t run a 7-11 with a gun to their heads. But they have an absolute sense of arrogance and omnipotence and anyone who disagrees (read: knows better) is “stupid, bigoted, homophobic, anti”-whatever (fill in insult blank) . Lots of rhetoric and an arrogant assumption that they know better than everyone else, even if they never touched any aspect of an industry, trade, or profession. See: Obamacare He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know, and there is a LOT he doesn’t know. See: Economics The core of leftism (totalitarianism, oligarchy) is the belief that you… Read more »

From ― George Orwell, Animal Farm “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” “Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” “No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?” “Friend of fatherless! Fountain of happiness! Lord of the swill-bucket! Oh, how my soul is on Fire when I gaze at thy Calm and commanding eye. Like the sun in the sky, Comrade Napoleon! Thou are the giver… Read more »

Thanks for reminding me how relevant this book is to today. Read this in high school, but looks like a read through again would be enlightening.

I’m hoping, taking from what you posted, that folks WILL see the garbage that is being put on us, IS leaving a “residue” and will start fighting back! May God have mercy on us.
