    That's a threat. Sorry if the English language isn't working for you on this one.
    The e-mail stated that he would regret writing the story because the story was not accurate and Woodward would look foolish.

    Mission accomplished.

    this is semantics. He feels the white house was trying to intimidate the free press, no?

    one problem, nobody with any integrity actually disagrees with his story on how the debt debate all unfolded.

    I think Obama cares very deeply, about his image. I agree he does seem to not care about governing or leading.
    Since when do conservatives care about "feelings"? Oh, that's right. it's a chance to take jabs at the "One".


    Obama is going to look good no matter what. You know why? Because this sequester thing will be hung around the neck of the Tea Nuts. Pretty much obvious, IMO.

    Conservatives? Are you talking about Woodward, Davis and Fournier?
    There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

    Anyone who supports the thug in the WH should be ashamed of themselves

    I'm ashamed this clown is my President
    Obama believes he's a dictator, so do progressives in general.

    Last week my idiot aunt told me "Obama can do whatever he wants because hes president."

    Grrrrrrrr.

    After listening to and reading what Woodward himself said and wrote, a moronic, ignorant fool would perceive a threat.

    Who cares about what he "feels". We are dealing in facts not feelings.
