    It is the 'conservatives' who go back to to 'tween wars Germany in an attempt to convince us that could happen here. Love using appeasement and jack booted thugs. Have to bring Hitler into comparisons with President Obama...

    Again my point on that is if YOU want to forget the very recent past and the Debacle that was BushII then it has to be time to drop the gun confiscation in 1930's Germany-

    right?
    What does any of that have to do with a White House attack dog being stupid enough to use e-mail to send a veiled threat to anyone? Let alone a reporter.

    But the pattern of defense of anything Obama administration is notable here....I notice how progressives first look to anything they can find that would excuse the quote in question, and when that doesn't work well enough, well, then they go to personal attack of the person, in this case Woodward. It is Alinsky 101.

    Now for the record, although I think there was a mild case of bully like behavior there, not unlike during the '08 campaign, when the Obama team threatened to kick certain reporters that they thought weren't giving good enough coverage to Obama off the press pool plane. In this case, Sperling (the bully in question) is never asked on all the Sunday talk shows yesterday what exactly he meant by the phrase "...you may regret staking out that claim..."

    It pains me to say because I can't stand David Gregory, but he came closest, and Sperling dodged the question totally. But, the underlying point is that progressive/liberals, and this White House are bullies. And that goes all the way to the top.

    Another BS lie! No one was threatened, you know it.

    No, I don't know that...And if that were true, then why'd Woodward feel the need to bring it out in the way he did? Certainly Bob Woodward is not scared of these types of veiled threats, nor is he some newby cub reporter that interprets these things wrongly...:note: this is where you attack Woodward personally.

    No, just trying to get you to agree if 4 years ago is 'the past' then the 1930's must be 'ancient' history for 'conservatives'.

    It is an interesting quirk of 'conservatives' the past still fresh on our minds and the fallout still playing out is 'the past' but what happened in a chaotic European country in the 30's is on every 'conservative' tongue.

    And while you seem quick to forget the entire 'fixation' as it suits you... let's not forget the constant 'conservative' drumbeat to try and use 18th century mindset to lead us into the 21st century....

Woodward showed us, and now we need to see yours!
    Extremists don't need no facts and their agenda will not be dictated by fact checkers.

    That they will not be dictated by fact checkers answers everything.

    I think certain people thought Woodward somehow wouldn't do his job...reporting.

    The implied threat, as I understand it, was no access to the White House.

    I'm going to be curious which journalists stand up with Woodward.

    As Judge Judy would say, if it doesn't make sense it is not true. Woodward obviously is suffering from senility.

    Obamaniacs will try to divert to the "threat" creation to divert from the truth that the White House created the sequester - while trying to blame Republicans now for it.
    Seems to me 'conservatives' and Mr. Woodward are playing up 'the threat' and totally ignoring the cause. I personally don't see where Mr. Woodward was raged against, and in his interviews all he seems to want to talk about is how threatened he felt.

    I'd say the so-called conservatives are doing their damnest to make 'the threat' THE story out of this....

    So far none.

    Whatever happened to the right's criticism of the lamestream media?
    As Ann Romney would say, "you people" have gotten everything you're going to get.
