Bob Woodward reveals thuggish behavior by Obama Administration "Senior Official".

Journalist Bob Woodward of Watergate fame says a “Senior White House Official” threatened him.

SooperMexican.com reported that, according to Ben Smith at BuzzFeed.com that “Senior White House Official” was Gene Sperling, director of the White House Economic Council.  According to BuzzFeed, Politico.com reported that Woodward called Sperling to tell him that he would question Obama’s account of negotiations leading to the “sequester” — automatic cuts set to take effect next month.  According to BuzzFeed,  (Sperling) “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward said, and then sent a follow-up email that read, in part: “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”
