Bob Woodward Tears Into Obama With Veiled Nixonian Criticism: ‘Madness That I Haven’t Seen In A Long Time’



Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward’s ongoing war of words with President Barack Obama’s White House escalated on Wednesday when Woodward took to the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe to slam the president’s handling of the sequester fight. Woodward said that the president has displayed a “kind of madness” in his decision to make those cuts as painful and deleterious to the nation’s war fighting capability as possible.

Bob Woodward Tears Into Obama With Veiled Nixonian Criticism ‘Madness That I Haven’t Seen In A Long Time’

Host Joe Scarborough began the interview by asking for a recap of the fight between Woodward and the administration regarding who proposed the sequester first. Woodward informed Scarborough that the White House has conceded that he was originally right and that the idea for sequester came from the Obama administration.

He then turned to the sequester: “I think peoples’ heads are about to explode about all of this, you know, what the hell is going on here,” Woodward said. “I’m not sure the White House understands exactly what happened in all of these negotiations at the end of 2011 with the sequester and the super committee, because they were really on the sidelines.”

Woodward slammed Obama’s decision to announce that sequester cuts would force an American aircraft carrier to not deploy to the Persian Gulf.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document’?” Woodward asked incredulously. “Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need.’ Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document?”

“Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country,” Woodward concluded. “That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.”

    Not all companies are made equal, plus some are a lot more expensive compared to others.

    Try to use large bags; it will be easier to cut smaller
    shapes out of larger pieces than add two pieces together.

    [Good God, he practically bellowed, do you realize that instead of spending ten times as much as the rest of the world combined, we risk falling to nine?)

    There is no reason for us to be in that region, what terrorists? Every one we have found apparently was connected to another US Government entity/program. TSA has arrested how many terrorists after fingering grandma and baby? Exposed millions to deadly radiation and TSA employees are dropping like flies . . . ZERO!

    Our rights are taken away in a false war against terrorism and old Veterans are listed as possible terrorists? I wonder why!

    Now Obama puts in place a new law that stops firearms from being sold to pot smokers and he IS a pot smoker? A person who was disbarred for illegal activity and carries an illegal social security number that fails EVerify checks, whose faked birth certificate was proven to be illegal and authorized by him?

    A treasonous War Criminal who illegally invaded Libya an act of treason! Bob Woodruff may be accurate in his reactions but WE DO NOT HAVE ANY REASON TO BE IN THAT REGION.
    Of course we created their terrorists. We should not have been there in the first place. Iraq is a “Viet Nam” a false flag over a STORY about WMD’s.

    What part about an allies wiring the WTC for demolition is so damned hard to understand? What about their many attacks on American was ships and American soil is so dammned difficult to accept?
