  •  Woodward is indeed a rightwing asshole (4+ / 0-)

    and the ultimate Village Elder. No one is disputing that.

    He also is a veteran investigator whose journalistic integrity has never, as far as I know, been seriously called into question. There's every reason to accept that this memo is real and that Woodward has access to it.

    Are you disputing that?

    And...

    Accusing critics of the President of being "so very sad" at his reelection is a cheap shot, easily demonstrated to be counter-factual. I doubt you believe it yourself.

    When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

    •  Woodward and Bernstein were the reasons... (0+ / 0-)

      I majored in journalism.

      What they and The Washington Post did was nothing short of heroic concerning Watergate.

      Having said that, of course Bob Woodward's integrity has been called into question -- and on numerous occasions. To wit: William Casey's "deathbed" confession.

      As far as critics of President Obama being sad at his re-election? Well, of course, I can speculate only. But I have reasons to believe it's true, as is evidenced by some of the diaries and comments that have been published on this site the past week.

      How about I believe in the unlucky ones?

    •  I question it. (0+ / 0-)

      I would question any beltway insider whose ego is still riding on the glory of journalistic coups long past.  Especially when investigative journalism is NOT something that they do anymore.  Innuendo and gossip in a book does not impress me.
