    Lanny Davis has related that the same thing was told to his editor as was told to Woodward. Davis claimed the statement made to his editor was that Davis would lose his WH credentials. Davis is (was?) an Obama supporter of the 1st order.

    I would have to go with incompetence

    BHO's entire presidency just proves that you can get the public to eat a schiat sandwich if its packaged and marketed correctly,and once they buy the sandwich the koolaid is just a throw in
    What will happen is the republicans will praise and kiss his feet. Then they will put their arms down and he will hit them with a right cross right between the eyes.

    Lanny Davis and Bob Woodward are both drama queens. Did you read the email exchange?

    Yes, there was room for interpretation in the actual words of the email, but the following might indicate that the WH is trying to impugn Woodward's credibility

    David Plouffe, Obama campaign aide, tweeted the following about Woodward:

    "Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated."

    How many times can Obama use the excuse that he simply doesn't know what all the loose cannons around him are doing?Not helping the consulate in Benghazi; releasing the illegal detainees; bullying reporters ..

    It has nothing to do with the reporters political leaning. Woodward is what evey reporter should be : a person who will dig out the facts and be willing to report them regardless of where it takes him. Unlike FOX news, he will let you know the king has no clothes on, regardless of what party he is from, not just because he is a dem or rep. Nixon was the first and Obama will not be the last.

    Mike Wallace, Morley Saffer, Cronkite, Murrow, Reasoner, Rooney, Thomas, Moyers,Bergman, those are/were reporters who never let anyone off the hook . We need a new generation of them.

    Nope, he is the Roger Clemens of the reporting world to me. Took a wonderful record of good reporting and really good work and tarnished it. Was a real shame.
