When this nut job in the white house under Obama's control went out and told Woodward he is going to Regret what he is doing is a double edged sword..
White House economic adviser Gene Sperling to Woodward:
I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. I do understand your problems with a couple of our statements in the fall -- but feel on the other hand that you focus on a few specific trees that gives a very wrong perception of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim ... My apologies again for raising my voice on the call with you. Feel bad about that and truly apologize.
So the email is here, Woodward told the truth!!!

Hmmm...So a poster explains that they want to see the actual email before comming to a conclusion...
And for that preference to reserve judgement and examine the factual evidence before comming to a conclusion..
You label that poster an "Obama apologist and enabler" ???
That might sum up well what is wrong with ATS.

Imagine that President Obama is visited by aliens who give him the power to kill any human being with his mind. Simply by willing it, he can bring about his or her violent death, as if by a tiny missile. Alternatively, he can kill inconspicuously, so that the target appears to die from an aneurism, a heart attack, a stroke, or any number of other "natural causes" that he can vary as he sees fit. He is limited only insofar as he can kill just one person at a time, which takes roughly two minutes.
The power would expire at the end of his term.
Would that be a good thing?
I thought Woodward himself released the emails?
And though I know it will, as always, rankle a certain segment of posters....but from what I am reading it appears as if he was telling Woodward that as more facts and evidence became public, woodwards credibility would take a hit? Thus he would regret "staking out this claim"?

inocuos enough,whats the big deal?
In those cases your right, WHEN a Obama WHITE HOUSE tells a journalist their going to regret what was SAID is akin To telling ANYONE their going to regret what they said about you .. Your point is null and void

I fail to see how saying "you will regret doing this" could be perceived as a threat.
If I had a passenger in my vehicle and they were contemplating jumping out the door at 60 MPH, it would not be a threat for me to say "you will regret doing this".
If I knew someone who was about to drink battery acid on a drunken bet, it would not be a threat for me to say "you will regret doing this"
