So the WH takes on Woodward. May have been one bridge too far. Looks like the boys aren’t backing down.
UPDATE: Latest twiiter from WH David Plouffe
Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated.
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
Take a look at the video over at Politico and the story “Behind the Curtain”.
The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets.
Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill.
First Woodward Calls Out Obama For Sequestration “Madness” last week, now Obama threatens him. Anyone still wondering if Obama has an enemies list?
Now the background of the WH unhappiness.
As the clock ticks down to the implementation of President Obama’s sequester. The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward is blasting President Obama today for using the law as a way to put our national security at risk.
The Washington Post‘s Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on “Morning Joe” today, saying he’s exhibiting a “kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.
“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’” Woodward said.
