Threaten Bob Woodward? The man is a national treasure. HOW DARE YOU...

Oh. Never mind. Carry on.
 
2013-02-28 09:58:55 AM  
What a bed-wetting pantywaist he's become.
 
2013-02-28 10:01:00 AM  
So then, wtf is he making this big deal about being "threatened", then? That's not a threat, it sounds more like advice. Come on, Bob, you're better than this.

DAMMIT WOODSTEIN!

Something something Chicago something something Obama.

so bob woodward is a proven liar and now has ZERO credibility. that's good to know.

make me some tea: So then, wtf is he making this big deal about being "threatened", then? That's not a threat, it sounds more like advice. Come on, Bob, you're better than this.


He's pissed because "I'M BOB F*CKING WOODWARD! AND YOU WILL SHOW ME SOME GOD DAMN RESPECT!"
 
2013-02-28 10:14:04 AM

No... no he isn't.

I predict that this thread will be full of republicans lying and claiming people aren't nice enough to them.
 
2013-02-28 10:25:42 AM  
My favorite part will be when the guys from the other thread come in and try to say that because Woodward SAID he was threatened, that means he actually felt threatened and really truly couldn't be lying at all because Obama.
 
2013-02-28 10:25:49 AM  
Why would Woodward lie about this? Follow the money.

Study it out.
 
2013-02-28 10:27:07 AM  
Woodward should be disgraced and banished from the journalist community
 
2013-02-28 10:27:19 AM  
I think everything you need to know here is the fact that Woodward has decided to go on Hannity tonight to talk about this.
 
2013-02-28 10:28:14 AM  
Has Bob got a new book out, or what?

No, he's not and he never was. He's a complete hack who got lucky once and only once, 50 years ago
 
2013-02-28 10:28:35 AM  
It's amazing how quickly you can throw away 40 years of credibility.
 
2013-02-28 10:28:36 AM  
Ahahahahah I wonder how many of those very outraged people in the other thread will comment on this one?
 
2013-02-28 10:28:45 AM  
I guess after you've taken down a President, everything afterwards seems to pale in comparison.

Maybe it's time to start cashing that social security check, Bob.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Has Bob got a new book out, or what?


Either a book or a job with Fox News. It has to be one or the other.

This whole thing is like watching senility in action.

Dan Rather agrees.

I hope he brings his best pearls to clutch

I've exhausted my limited capacities in the other thread.  I have nothing more to add for this thread.  Carry on without me, guys.

Congratulations, you've reached "acceptance"
 
2013-02-28 10:33:18 AM  
I love how the Daily Caller has two front-page headlines right now playing  up the White House threat.
 
2013-02-28 10:34:01 AM  
Really?  This is the threatening letter?

Mr. Woodward seems to be pushing an agenda at the cost of reality.

Kaeishiwaza: Really?  This is the threatening letter?

Mr. Woodward seems to be pushing an agenda at the cost of reality.


That's why we're pretty sure he's auditioning for a job at Fox News.
 
2013-02-28 10:34:58 AM  
You can tell how threatened he felt by his reply.
 
2013-02-28 10:35:00 AM  
I guess it's worth keeping mind most beltway insiders are psychopaths that will say or do anything to promote themselves or their ideology at the expense of truth to massage the gears of power.  Can't help feeling a little depressed at how transparent and pathetic this effort is tho.  The republic is a mess and the 4th estate is infested with rats.
 
2013-02-28 10:35:21 AM  
BUT... BUT FOXNEWS HAS ALREADY MADE ALL THE WOODWARD-GATE BUMPERS AND GRAPHICS

Print media is dying and only conservatards will buy books that they won't read.

Nah, that was more "Admitting he's a troll."

But... that's how it works for women.

/tell me I lie
//Woody just pulled 'blacks on the corner' math
///you know, where two blacks become a gang in the retelling by 'concerned citizens'

Bob Woodward has been coasting on reputation for 40 years. His credibility was tattered during the GW Bush administration and now he's finished shredding it. Dude's not a journalist - he's a catty elitist gossipmonger.
 
2013-02-28 10:37:14 AM  

Dusk-You-n-Me: Bob Woodward trolled us (and we got played)


Wow, what a surprisingly self-aware article by the Tucker Carlson brigade.

I suppose you're right. Ah well.
 
2013-02-28 10:38:15 AM  

I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post.

I think you will regret staking out that claim Not out to argue and argue on this latter point. Just my sincere advice.

You do not ever have to apologize to me. You get wound up....




Ohhhhhh....so they were veiled threats.   Hidden in a psuedo politicking email.    Or you could say a veiled apology.


Gee....I wonder what he is apologizing for ???    Something the WH said in the phone call...?


Hmmmm.....     a heated phone call.    But nobody threatened anyone.  Nope.   The apology was for nothing.

Okay, fark that guy.
 
2013-02-28 10:39:08 AM  

Demetrius: What a bed-wetting pantywaist he's become.


Yeah, the Bush Administration effectively emasculated him.  He's now about as threatening as a wet fart in a park.
 
2013-02-28 10:39:24 AM  
This is Obama's Caddyshack II
 
2013-02-28 10:39:29 AM  
Why on earth did he reply with this if he came out and said it was a 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

He's pissed because "I'M BOB F*CKING WOODWARD! AND YOU WILL SHOW ME SOME GOD DAMN RESPECT!"


And my response would've been: "YOU HAD THAT GOD DAMN RESPECT UNTIL YOU START LICKING BUSH'S ASS!  MAYBE WHEN YOU FINALLY WIPE THE BROWNSTAINS OFF, YOU COULD GET IT BACK!"

I remember that movie, it was so long it had an intermission. He was great in it, but, he's really blowing it big time here.
