    Who ever said that Bob Woodward had any integrity?

    Hyperbole much?

    Things have changed since then.

    Now the President is Obama.

    Why do some (Not all.) people on the right try to make something out of nothing?

    Any ideas?

    There appear to be some on the right who are showing a bit of embarrassment for jumping into the conflict too early, once they had a chance to read the emails

    Conservatives Regret Taking Woodward's 'Threat' Story Seriously | TPM LiveWire

    Politico on Thursday posted the emails between Woodward and White House economic adviser Gene Sperling, who told Woodward, "as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim."

    "Looks like we were played," The Daily Caller's Matt Lewis wrote Thursday morning.

    RedState editor Erick Erickson was also surprised after reading the emails:

    The Washington Examiner's Byron York agreed:
    People who made big deal of this got played
    Fox News political analyst Brit Hume tweeted that it is hard to imagine feeling threatened by Sperling:

    Keith Urbahn, Donald Rumsfeld's former chief of staff, tweeted:
    Vintage Woodward: Cherry pick a friendly exchange, make it sinister & vault himself into the media, Did it with Rummy in State of Denial
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
