Gosh, even Bob Woodward’s figured out Obama’s game plan

Mission almost accomplished. "We're working on it."

The disarming Kenyan strikes again

And is disgusted.

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward attacked President Barack Obama on Wednesday, saying the commander-in-chief’s decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier because of budget cuts is “a kind of madness.”

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’” Woodward said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document?” Woodward added. “Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country. That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.”

The Pentagon announced earlier this month the U.S.S. Harry Truman, which was supposed to leave for the Persian Gulf, will remain stateside due to budget concerns.

UPDATE: White House to Woodward: “You will regret doing this.” Nixon’s enemies list, anyone?

    Up next; “I cannot enforce the laws of this nation – because of the budget crisis. I’m closing the FBI, returning Guantanamo to Cuba and suspending the federal court system.”

    Let me know when he suspends the secret service.

  2. Nothing to do with budget…….it is all political! This closeted gay and his “beard” are maniacally out to defeat completely all that was once a great nation!

    What’s more relevant is what all these talking heads (or supposedly reputable “journalists”) were saying BEFORE the election. A little late now for buyer’s remorse. Woodward’s an ass who made his mark tearing down a conservative President.
