An aging press diva struggles for relevance by picking a fight with the white house & mourns the strength and resolution of Ronald Reagan & George W Bush?  

Join Me Over the Orange Barbwire

I'm not going to touch upon Woodward's fatuous argument about who started the sequester...I'm annoyed that he goes after the President for holding back a carrier from the Persian Gulf  

TPM Story

What burned me was the quote:

"Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there saying, 'Oh, by the way, I can't do this because of some budget document?'" Woodward said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Or George W. Bush saying, 'You know, I'm not gonna invade Iraq, because I can't get the aircraft carriers I need?'

Why no, Bobby I can't.  By the way, can you imagine barack Obama selling arms to Iran to finance an illegal war in Nicaragua? Can you imagine Barack Obama invading Iraq under false pretenses, cherry picking debunked intelligence all the way?

F*ck You Woodward.  Tell us how you saved democracy for us.

Thu Feb 28, 2013 at 6:38 AM PT: I'm surprised my diary is on the rec list.  I was burning over the Ron & W comparisons; judging by the comments, many more were burning over the cries of wolf. There's a much better discussion up on the front page. Thanks

Is Woodward as irrelevant as Broder was?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
