Woodward took this story and made it all about himself. How far the mighty have fallen.

This.

Woodward is obviously a racist. Anyone that questions Obama is one don't ya know.


Do you think Woodward was threatened in that email?

Which I guess explains why liberals give him a pass on all those Bush era programs he's continued and expanded. They don't want to be racists.

Did you read the email in which Woodward claims he was threatened? do you think he was threatened?

/hope they have fun not being racists in our burgeoning police state


Yes there's a burgeoning police state in the same way that Woodward was threatened in that email...
the email you're apparently trying not to talk about...the email that's the subject of this thread. The thread you're apparently hoping to derail.

2013-02-28 11:47:18 AM  
It was either the ultimate troll or the ultimate dick move. Either he put it out there to bait the right wing media, or he basically betrayed a friend who was apologizing for a heated moment in a personal exchange. It is remarkedly similar to the "Friends of Hamas" incident in a way. Both were parts of personal conversations said in confidentiality, and both times the confidentiality was violated over something taken out of context and attempted to be exploited for political gain.

Seems to me that liberals have been more into the holodeck during Obama's presidency. It's a nice way to pretend the bad stuff he's doing doesn't exist.


See the link next to the headline? Click it and then read. In this case, as it is for MANY of the other supposed "outrages" of the Obama administration, the "bad stuff he's doing" LITERALLY does not exist. This whole story about the threats was a lie. That's not to say the Obama administration has nothing we can criticize it for, but the legitimate gripes are far less pruriently partisan.

You have to account for the context of the story. The email was sent after the guy yelled at Woodward for 1/2 an hour according to Woodward. After you just went through that, wouldn't it be possible to take a statement like "you'll regret it" as a threat even if it was surrounded by apologetic tones?

I won't try to speak for them, but I know that I am not the least bit happy about the continuation of some of the Bush era policies, but I also look at the entire picture and being upset at one policy does not preclude me from praising another. In general, Obama aligns more with my own views than anyone on the right, so I support him. Calling that "giving him a pass" on the things I don't like is just partisan hackery.

Very good.  Now, get to showing the second part of the claim you made- where the left gives him a free pass on these things.

Difficulty: if you're willing to think beyond the level of "they're all over there on that side of the spectrum, so they all think alike," you may discover that his civil liberties stances are one of the things the American left grouses about the most.  (Not to the point of "OMG police state, sky is falling, let's impeach the bastard," no...  But then, you wouldn't expect the left to sound just like the extreme right, either.)  Obama doesn't get a pass on those issues.  He simply gets re-elected, when the alternative is a right-wing president who would most likely continue the exact same policies, and others that left finds disagreeable besides.

There's a collective delusion on the right that the left loves the man.  The left mostly settles for him... and considers him the adult in the room relative to the practical alternative.  "We'll settle for sane" is not "a free pass on everything."  This Woodward email bullshiat- and the right pre-emptively losing their minds over it- is a prime example of why that is.

cameroncrazy1984: 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.


Sounds correct to me. That's all that should matter to all the feel good, libtards?

Brubold: cameroncrazy1984: Brubold: cameroncrazy1984: max_pooper:

So the two of you have somehow managed to ignore our eroding civil liberties during Obama's presidency? His continuation of the Bush era policies that are quickly growing our country into a police state? Random DHS road blocks? TSA molestations? Expansion of warrantless surveillance of US citizens?

I'll just leave these here -

And of course there are many many more to be found.

I like how all three of those are opinion columns.

Opinion columns from left-wing sources. I specifically sought them out figuring you idiots would consider them acceptable sources because of how quickly you run to the narrative of the source being the problem. I guess I was wrong. There's no source you'll hesitate to disregard if they go after Obama.


So opinion columns from left wing sources criticizing Obama's action are somehow proof that liberals refuse to criticize those actions?

FlashHarry: JusticeandIndependence: Interesting that CNN.com has the initial Woodward saying it's a threat piece on the main page, but no update on the actual e-mail.

librul media!


Drudge, Fox, Yahoo, MSNBC all of them have no updates.  Only small outlets are slowly updating the story.

JusticeandIndependence: I've received a timeout for less.


I'm not one to go screaming to the Modmins, but yeah, on several occasions I've gotten posts zapped that were far less egregious than this line of blatant deflection.

unexplained bacon: did you catch the RW reaction to Woodward's claim before and after the text of the email was released?


Read the comments from TFA.

The grassroots teabaggers are doubling down.

The right wingnut bubble has not been burst and will never be burst so long these people refuse to acknowledge any fact that undermines their preconceptions.  They have faith that they're right.  And, faith -- to them -- is worth more than all the facts in the world.

Right now G. Gordon Liddy is thinking "You mean I could have just kneecapped that SOB and shut the whole thing down? Dammit."
