    However, here is the catch:

    Prove it.

    Bob Woodward says so is not enough.

    1. Name the senior adviser.
    2. Produce the e-mail Bob Woodward got.

    I'll wait.

    If you can't, his word alone is no reason to believe anything he says.
    What a silly request. So you think someone here can provide you the email off of Woodward's computer? Really?

    Frankly, good. It's about time the lefter-wing of the Press started realizing what they're dealing with. Now I hope someone central-ish defends Woodward and gets the same treatment.

    Yes he has been so wrong with his sources in the past, relying on janitors, secretaries and mail room gophers.

    I don't know if the linked story updated sometime after your posts, but I believe it's in the story

    "I think they're confused," Woodward said of the White House's pushback on his reporting.

    The White House aide who Woodward said threatened him was Gene Sperling, the director of the White House Economic Council, BuzzFeed's Ben Smith reported.

    Yeah, Bush and Co did the same thing. The President has been trending in this direction for quite some time. Don't think that supporting the status quo is going to change the status quo either. This is what the Republocrats ultimately want; aggregated power beyond wisdom and advisement, isolation from the People, a new rule for them and the new aristocracy.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I understand the title was generated by the software, but it still breaks the guidelines. I have reported it, so we will see what happens.

    Damn, you're right. I made it larger so it's easier to read.

    Suddenly Woodward, the darling of the left for bringing down Nixon is persona non grata for standing up to Obama. Aint life grand.
