Posted on 02/28/2013 7:35:13 AM PST by Biggirl
Wednesday night, in the aftermath of the blow-up regarding the White Houses email to Bob Woodward suggesting he would "regret" his reporting of sequestration, White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe took to twitter to bash Woodward as a past-his-prime hack: - See more at:

Typical thug tactics. I think they messed with the wrong guy this time. Woodward is pretty much a national icon and a lot of people are not going to take kindly to smearing him.
Do ya think? (tee hee hee)
Ah yes... The Plouffter following his “Rules for Radicals” list.
Isolate target: check.
Personal attack: check.
Time for “All The President’s Men - Part II” eh, Woodward?
Woodward is about to learn the difference between challenging an establishment republican president and the modern progressive president.
This from a man whose name sounds like a muffled f*rt.
Rather, I see people saying more and more, “enough is enough”. This is just the start.
“Woodward is about to learn the difference between challenging an establishment republican president and the modern progressive president.”
I see that when Woodward stood up, the start of the end for Obama.
How dare he expose the lies of this administration!!!...../sarc
They’re crossing the chief correspondent from the CIA.
Although I have yet to ‘jump on the B Woodward’ bandwagon, I still feel he is a LIB whose task in life is/was to make life miserable for R’s in General.
The GOOD thing about this fiasco is Woodward IS a household name as ‘they’ continue to keep him in the forefront as the demise of R M Nixon was considered the ‘greatest coup’ in the history of the Republic.
As to the Bandwagon, I also trust Dick Morris about as far as I can throw him, put Greta on that list, Rivera, O’Reilly and Hannity (I couldn’t ‘take’ him from back in the days when either he or his handlers didn’t think he would/could make it without Colmes)....
Just because they are on FOX doesn’t make them a Republican, MUCH less a Conservative.
Fox right now is what we got, not much conservative alternates out there.
I wonder how the MSM is handling this--that Woodward is getting senile?
In a way Plouff is right. Woodward was never anything other than a disgusting leftist political hack pretending to be a news man. As the leftists get more brazen Woodward no longer has the stomach for his designated role as fascist lickspittle. Thus, in the only role he ever took he is becoming washed up.
“I see that when Woodward stood up, the start of the end for Obama.”
I pray that you are right. But I don’t think you are.
I am VERY CONFIDENT because Obama and company has exposed his hand in the card game.
History could very well repeat itself.
Using common sense makes you washed up in Washington...
I am VERY CONFIDENT that Woodward has exposed Obama and company’s playing hand in this card game.
What a nasty bunch of people they are.
“I am VERY CONFIDENT because Obama and company has exposed his hand in the card game.
History could very well repeat itself.”
I wish I could share your optimism, but with what I’ve seen from the Obama media in the last 4 years, count me as skeptical.
But it is refreshing to see optimism, even if I don’t buy it yet. :)
Yet, Plouff is wrong on one fact. If Woodward was ever liberal, it was the old style liberalism, not this radical stuff we see today.
At least someone has a SPINE for a change.
This group has simply overplayed their hand in all this, nothing bad will happen.
I sort of agree with Plouffe that Woodward is a has been, because I think Woody is just a slo-mo mentally challenged writer who along with Bernstein stumbled into a story that all-the-liberal-powers-that-be egged on in DC at the time and brought down a sitting President. My opinion of Plouffe? Well, I’d say he’s a poofter even though he’s married.
Regardless, the establishment media would be forced to throw away their ICON of rebellion and accountability against the evil (Republican) powers-that-be.
An interesting conundrum of ideals. On the one hand, totally discredit their revisionist history wrt Nixon (and everything he wrote on Reagan and Bush(s), or discredit their “Magic Negro” [term originated by the LA Times] Obama.
In any case, we are about to find out whether the establishment liberal Media will rally behind Woody, or will they continue on as Mr. Obama’s prison b!tch where they’re certain to spend the majority of their time on their knees doing things they really don’t like.
I'll never forget the Bill Casey crap. He claimed Bill Casey took him into his confidence on his death bed. His wife and daughter said it never happened. That one of them was always in the room with Casey during his final days in the hospital.
Why he's decided to go after Obama, I don't know. Maybe he senses that Obama is finally vulnerable and the first journalists to start printing the truth will be extolled as heroes for telling the truth. Who knows. He isn't trustworthy, but it's nice to see someone from the left finally challenging some of the lies Obama tells.
But with another WH staffer going all pit bull on twitter it will be interesting to see if Woodward lets it slide or doubles down.
It's like watching Hitler and Stalin fight each other. It's not important who wins, only that they destroy each other so much that it's pyrrhic.
Could it not be because despite what Plouffe says, Woodward has what Plouffe DOES NOT HAVE as let’s just say is a SPINE?
LOL! Sorry. I have to laugh. From Lefty Icon to dumpster-filler in one easy lesson: you may not ever, EVER, criticize The One!
It’s all intermurals folks. The Clinton and the non-Clinton gangs mixin’ it up.
“LOL! Sorry. I have to laugh. From Lefty Icon to dumpster-filler in one easy lesson: you may not ever, EVER, criticize The One!”
Well some folks have not ever read about a king and his new clothes. LOL.
My Wife and I were kicking this around and she believes that the move is one of self interest and not journalistic integrity.
Going along with the pack, ignoring the truth is killing them(media) financially and will not provide the personal glory they crave.
They need to turn to get a head.
If this is true, there will be more.
Faced with the decision to stand up for an investigative “journalist” or to defend their fractionally-black socialist messiah I expect American leftists will conclude there is plenty of room under that bus for Woodward and any other heretic who dares stray from the tenets of their secular religion.
Well...could be...regardless, Plouffe and Axelrod are a curious pair....one looking like a 50s porno film actor and the other just an ideological whore.
I have been saying since the beginning of this nightmare that this will end when the “right people” have enough of this Fraud.
It cannot come soon enough.
Remember, Richard Nixon was re-elected and not long after he entered Watergate. Benghazigate and others? We shall see.
Obozo dreams of the collapse of capitalism and freedom. He should be careful for what he wishes.
.....Or even for ONCE get a SPINE for a change.
Remember what happened to the old horse in Animal Farm?
Woodward’s written e-mail response was full of obsequious genuflection.
Look, conservatives despise the MSM, they don't trust them, know them to be liars, carriers of obamas water.
Does anyone think the WH doesn't know that? The WH cant use a media that the public ignores, Right?
Woodward enters; stage left...
Nope. Too much hysteria over this, too easy, the e-mail release, the hype, the subject matter.
I don't see where Woodward has lost access, seems like he's jumped the gun (no pun intended) a bit....Think about it.
Look for Rush to have fun with this shortly. :)
It is starting to happen before our eyes.
who knows what the future holds. obama looks undeatable right now. Nixon looked even stronger after his re-election. Nobody looking at Nixon in February 1973 would have dreamed that he'd be gone and in disgrace less than 2 years later. We'll see where the Lord of the Flies ends up.
Poor Woodward went from the greatest rap-port-ter of the left to disturbed, anxious, senile, has been, mentally deranged, old fool.
But I understand he is looking around for Spelunker equipment.
>> “ If Woodward was ever liberal” <<
He wasn’t. He has always been the opposition, but I can’t recall anything from him that was particularly ‘liberal.’
He was a tool, and I think that he is now recognizing that.
