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.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
“It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,’” Woodward said.
“I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on his reporting.
Earlier today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Woodward ripped into Obama in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington Post journalist and the White House. Woodward said Obama was showing 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.
The Defense Department said in early February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the sequester.
“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,’ … because of some budget document?”
Last weekend, Woodward called out Obama for what he said was “moving the goal posts” on the sequester by requesting that revenue be part of a deal to avert it.

Last summer I had a conference call in which I disclosed through a "Live Database" search how:

4Age 50 - Born in 1890 - Immigrated from Russia
This is the information that I pulled when I was "Skipping " a debtor in Chicago. She was one of only two accounts that I had for the whole state of IL. Note the Irony. When I clicked on the neighbors section of the database search Obama's name pulled up as a neighbor to this individual when she lived off of Everett Ave back in the 90's and I said HMMMM.
Liberals like to scream about the causes of poverty. As with everything else they scream about, they cannot get their facts right.
Poverty is not caused by racism or injustice. It is caused by government policies. One of the biggest root causes of poverty is the government policies that create fatherless families.
From the Washington Times:
Nicole Hawkins‘ three daughters have matching glittery boots, but none has the same father. Each has uniquely colored ties in her hair, but none has a dad present in her life.
As another single mother on Sumner Road decked her row-house stoop with Christmas lights and a plastic Santa, Ms. Hawkins recalled that her middle child’s father has never spent a holiday or birthday with her. In her neighborhood in Southeast Washington, 1 in 10 children live with both parents, and 84 percent live with only their mother.
In every state, the portion of families where children have two parents, rather than one, has dropped significantly over the past decade. Even as the country added 160,000 families with children, the number of two-parent households decreased by 1.2 million. Fifteen million U.S. children, or 1 in 3, live without a father, and nearly 5 million live without a mother. In 1960, just 11 percent of American children lived in homes without fathers.
America is awash in poverty, crime, drugs and other problems, but more than perhaps anything else, it all comes down to this, said Vincent DiCaro, vice president of the National Fatherhood Initiative: Deal with absent fathers, and the rest follows.
People “look at a child in need, in poverty or failing in school, and ask, ‘What can we do to help?’ But what we do is ask, ‘Why does that child need help in the first place?’ And the answer is often it’s because [the child lacks] a responsible and involved father,” he said.
The government policies that liberals champion have created an expressway to poverty. In the inner city, women with three, four or five children all with different fathers is not uncommon. The women don’t care if they get pregnant. After all, the government is there to give them money. The men just want to be able to have sex with a woman without the commitment of marriage. Unfortunately, the welfare programs in this nation encourage illegitimacy and punish the creation of families.
The simple truth is, one of the fastest ways to avoid poverty is not to have children until you are married and stay married once you have children.
That truth is so simple, even a liberal should be able to understand it.
