  •  Woodward has been misused, it seems to me. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Frankly, this latest piece, which is being misused by the Republicans, is the President's own fault -- because he said this:

    The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed.  It is something that Congress has proposed.
    That was not true, and he deserved to be called on that factually inaccurate statement, which is what Woodward did.  That is what a reporter is SUPPOSED to do.

    If the President had said, "the sequester is not something I wanted, but is something I was forced into proposing because of Congress' unreasonable position on the debt ceiling," this piece would not have been written.
