  •  Woodward says WH using this as distraction (1+ / 0-)

    The man who has been making the media rounds on this memo was on the Today Show this morning claiming the WH is using this as a distraction:

    “It’s been pointed out that this is a sideshow, which it is,” the Washington Post journalist told Matt Lauer on TODAY from Washington. “This is the old trick in the book of making the press, or some confrontation with the press, the issue, rather than what the White House has done here.”
    and there was this:
    Woodward said he never went public with his spat over the White House. He said that Politico, which covers politics in various media, approached him with questions about why he called the president out in his op-ed. Earlier in the week, he told Politico that an Obama aide “yelled at me for about half an hour.”
    “I’ve done this 40 years. I’ve had lots of contentious exchanges with the White House," he said. "I’ve never said this was a threat. This is what it is. People can read.”

    •  Seriously? This man inserts himself (0+ / 0-)

      smack-dab into the middle of an important policy debate, turns the spotlight on himself, and yells EVERYONE LOOK AT MEEE!!!  And then when everyone is looking, he asks Why are you looking at me?

      He is trying to throw this back onto the White House, which is the go-to diversion of the GOP.
