Woodward: WH Aide 'Yelled at Me' for Half Hour

In response to White House Tells Bob Woodward: "You Will Regret Doing This" - The Video:

Politico has published a piece to go with the video clip I linked earlier. In it, Woodward adds texture to his statement on CNN. He says a White House aide "yelled at me for about a half hour." The email Woodward received with the line about "regret" came after.



The best news may be that Politico now seems to understand, for the first time, that this is about setting the record straight:

The Woodward reporting has caused the White House spin machine to sputter at a crucial time. The president was running around the country, campaign-style, warning that Republicans were at fault for the massive cuts set to hit Friday. What Obama never says: it was his own staff that proposed sequestration, and the tax hikes he now proposes – aimed at replacing half of the cuts — were never part of that very specific plan.

This is exactly the point that I made here yesterday, "Somehow it escapes the notice of the media that the President is running a full-on campaign on a different premise, i.e. that he's not at fault for the sequester that is about to smash into the economy like a wrecking ball." Thanks to Bob Woodward, it seems this important fact no longer escapes their notice.
