So now, in the big Woodward scandal, in which journalist Bob Woodward said that the White House wrote and endorsed the sequester they are now blaming on Republicans in Congress (um, lie number one) now they’re saying that they didn’t threaten Woodward (lie number two). But, another Liberal comes forward and says he was treated the same way by this White House. Lanny Davis, Clintonista and supporter of this administration says that they issued the same threat to him. From Fox News;
In a radio interview on WMAL, Davis said that a “senior Obama White House official” once called his editor at the Times and said that if the paper continued to run his columns, “his reporters would lose their credentials.”
Davis said he “couldn’t imagine why this call was made” since he’s an Obama supporter.
The email exchange between Woodward and Gene Sperling is at the Washington Post.
But to me, the biggest lie in all of this was during the debate between the President and Mitt Romney, when Romney mentioned the sequester, the President said, very clearly “The sequester is not going to happen”…yet here we are.
