Bob Woodward´s Dark Days
Newsweek, by Max Holland

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/10/2013 5:05:32 AM

For the past week Washington has found itself debating Bob Woodward. The occasion: his very public argument with White House senior official Gene Sperling, in which Woodward left the impression that Sperling had somehow tried to intimidate him—only to see this accusation undermined by the release of an email exchange in which the pair sounded rather conciliatory.Almost all the commentary about this flap fits neatly under the heading, “What the Hell Happened to Bob Woodward?” But posing that question, as New York magazine did last week, implies a transformation that never occurred.

A long, drawn-out article that seems to imply that Woodward has been less than forthcoming with the facts relating back to his Watergate investigation. Amazing how this is coming out almost 40 years after the fact and now that the media has fallen out of love with poor Bob.
(One point, the link goes to the Daily Beast site) FTA: Woodward and Bernstein apparently exploited the liberties of the form to the hilt. “Some of their writing is not true,” according to the director of All The President´s Men. Well, duh. They just couldn´t wait to take out Nixon. They had motive & opportunity, and their comrades in the press room cheered them on.

Now that Bob had the gall to actually stand up to someone in the Obama admin for not towing the line, he has to be taken out. (Figuratively, I´m guessing) And apparently, the word ´Obama´ never appears in this article.

I was a real believer in Richard Nixon. I remember standing at an ironing board for most of the night while I watched election returns in the 1960 race. I wasn´t yet of voting age (it was 21 back then), but I badly wanted a Nixon victory. Years later, I saw Woodward, Bernstein and their cheering section bring him down. I never believed in Deep Throat, I didn´t think a drunken Nixon conversed with the White House portraits (the second book) and I didn´t believe a comatose Bob Casey gave Woodward enough material for yet another book.

If Bob Woodward is being discredited now, I say hooray and high time!

It seems that some chickens have taken an inordinately long time to find their way back to the roost, but roosting they are. That being said, it doesn´t make what´s happened recently untrue, just unappreciated by the powers that be.

If the press and electronic media were so focussed on one story like they were then, things would be different.

The various media used to be watchdogs, now they are inbred lap dogs being force-fed agenda driving political stories regardless of what the truth is and they don´t go down a path that would lead to taking down a president anymore.

RMN didn´t order the break in, the "plumbers" did that, but he certainly was guilty of misuse of power to keep a lid on it--and THAT is something the tyrant in charge of this regime today does on a daily basis and isn´t EVER called on it.

Those who do try to shine the light of truth are pilloried and attacked. Its just a matter of time before Dr. Carson is given his "treatment" by the drive-bys--I´m praying for him on a daily basis.

Newsweek. Not a credible source. And while I still believe Nixon was railroaded for a far lesser offense than anything this curent administration does on a daily basis it is somewhat comforting to see Woodward being attacked. But it´s only because he attacked the media godhead.

There is only one person worse than Bob Woodward, and that is the lying dog Richard Nixon....who campaigned to end a war and under his watch 30,000 young American men were killed. Under Johnson 25,000 were killed. Nixon gave us the EPA and so many other liberal policies. I have no grief for these so called presidents we have elected.

Mr. Woodward is experiencing some Alinksy style retribution since he dared to speak ill of the administration. To all those media types out there who applauded and supported Woodward´s expose on Nixon, you have to be the biggest bunch of unethical, immoral, hypocritical, lying, cowards that ever drew breath. When you gave Obama a pass on Fast and Furious and then Benghazi, you surrendered your integrity for a man who will sacrifice American lives to advance his agenda. You owe Richard Nixon an apology.

I have no reason to believe either of them, but Holland´s writing this piece now, when Woodward is speaking out so strongly against Obie, makes my antenna go up. Another Obot from liberal Antioch?

Holland could have boiled this piece down to one page, nevertheless, it drives home the point. The left eats its own. Not clear why Woodward felt need to blow the lid off of his exchange with sperling in the first place. Unless he, for a moment, saw the light, and felt some guilt for his taking Nixon down. I doubt it because these things happen after you´ve sold your soul.

Boob Woodward called Obama´s fear mongering about the sequester ´madness.´ That´s what got him into trouble with the Obama regime.
Here´s the interesting part: because of Bob Woodward´s remark, the MSM didn´t march lockstep with Obama´s tall tales. Bob Woodward called Obama´s bluff and the MSM backed Woodward, not Obama.
The really interesting part was watching Obama cave. Apparently, the Obama regime has been threatening other members of the press. The press is now more free; what they do with that freedom remains to be seen.

Woodward was right in calling Obama on his ´madness´. I do dance madly at the fact that Woodward gets nailed after all these years.
Nixon was a creep but not near as big a creep as the current White House resident now.
I never believed there was a ´Deep Throat´ and it sounded too corny to me. I hope this knocks all of Bob Woodward future out of the water for some old time revenge. His little rant exposes some of the evils being perpertrated by this regime and that´s enough for me.

Wasn´t ´deep throat´ revealed a few years ago on his deathbed to have been a very digruntled FBI guy who was up for the leadership position and Nixon didn´t choose him? Instead Nixon went with someone else and overlooked this guy. I remember this news because at the time I thought Nixon was right to not choose this guy. So ´deep throat´ took him down in revenge instead.

I don´t think for a minute that Woodward had a change of heart or an awakening of conscience.
I think he is as arrogant and full of himself as Obama.

It´s amusing to see the left turn on him for a very minor offense. I´m enjoying it.

I still don´t understand why/how Nixon was forced to resign when Clinton and especially Obama are so much worse.

Woodward may be the biggest fraud to come down the pike but he was RIGHT on those two points.

And he is paying the price for lying about Nixon.

So we go into lockstep and say "not a chance" when he comes out against Obie, whom we know to be a bad guy?

As for finding answers in this article, when a Max Holland needs so many words to make his case, it always looks like overkill. Really really piling on. And then I wonders why.

#12, Nixon did NOT lie. He pulled us out of Vietnam. And where do you get your information?? Obviously, from a propaganda site. I pulled the records from the government archives from 1964 to 1974. Americans who died under LBJ´s administration (1964 - 1968) was 36,556. Americans who died under Nixon administration (1969 - 1974) was 21,195.

1968 - 16,899 soldiers died. That was the worst year. Nixon took office 1969. The election was in November 1968.

So, please don´t spread false propaganda. By the way, LBJ could have ended the war but he actually was making a fortune off of it. He kept it going because his heavy equipment business had military contracts and they were selling his equipment over there. Half the time it wasn´t even used for any good purpose. My friend was over there and saw it first hand.

Right on #3. I couldn´t agree more. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein sent off on a story that probably wasn´t all that meaningful. Deep Throat turned out to be sore looser that didn´t get the job he thought he deserved. The Plumbers were already in jail when they started their political assination on Richard Nixon. Believe it or not Hillary Rodhm was a young attorney at the time working her way up the ladder of trying to take out Nixon. This story needs to be told loud and clear. An all out assault on Republicans back then. Obama wants to finish the job.

If the hard right were as politically sophisticated as the leftoids no demeaning of Woodward would be happening. He is old and certainly shouldn´t be left friendless even if our support is only in the form of lack of criticism. I would praise his honor and courage myself (and I would praise it whether I believed it or not--ObaMaoish? Maybe start believing my own lies as he once got away with saying?)Dark days.

Love the posts-informative. Post # 2 is right on. A brain rotter mag/rag? #17 the obots from Antioch, thanks!

Re # 12, Nixon´s dem Congress ended the Vietnam War by refusing to fund it after the troops won Tet. The left doesn´t praise Nixon for the end or mourn the people hanging off the Helicopter skids at the embassy as we tucked our tails under and ran. Kind of like the wasted lives in Iraq and Afghanistan that will result from dems ending those efforts and giving them to Russia. It is in Isaiah.

Re # 35 And Nixon wasn´t half as expensive? LOL to keep from crying or going insane as the good guys seem to be loosing control.

Re #39, Hitlery was then trained in Alinsky methods and grooving to Marx just as Bill the commie visitor and draft dodger.

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 9:32:52 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012.

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
