    Exclusive: The Woodward, Sperling emails revealed[W: 84]

    Well folks, here is that supposed threat a senior Obama gave to Woodward: H/T MMfA

    "Bob:
    I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. My bad. I do understand your problems with a couple of our statements in the fall — but feel on the other hand that you focus on a few specific trees that gives a very wrong perception of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here.
    But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim. The idea that the sequester was to force both sides to go back to try at a big or grand barain with a mix of entitlements and revenues (even if there were serious disagreements on composition) was part of the DNA of the thing from the start.

    Don't forget Woodward's response to this sinister and ominous threat:

    "Gene: You do not ever have to apologize to me. You get wound up because you are making your points and you believe them. This is all part of a serious discussion. I for one welcome a little heat; there should more given the importance. I also welcome your personal advice. I am listening. I know you lived all this. My partial advantage is that I talked extensively with all involved. I am traveling and will try to reach you after 3 pm today. Best, Bob"

    Makes the hair on your neck stand up, doesn't it?

    Socialist of Amerika Partei (SAPs) apologists and propagandists typically leave out the root of the matter... put another way...

    You forget the following... and it is this that matters...
    … I think you will regret staking out that claim.” Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat. “

    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Then why did he write back saying no apology was necessary?

    Who cares... FACT is... Bob Woodward... not some cub reporter... felt he was threatened.

    So did Lanny Davis.

    Now Ron Fournier pipes up about the thin skinned Obama thugs.

    This isn't a one-off, and I recall King Il Dung (KID Obama) trying to dress down a TV reporter.

    Some people feel threatened by jet contrails, that doesn't mean they are.
