Ezra Klein’s sequester idiocy: You moved goalpost, rubes!; Slams Woodward

Facts? “Fact-checker” Ezra Klein doesn’t need no stinkin’ facts! WaPo’s Ezra Klein also doesn’t need to be based in reality either, evidently.

On the sequester, the American people ‘moved the goalposts’ wapo.st/ZAwJ17

— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) February 24, 2013

You moved the goalposts, rubes.

Here in DC, we can get a bit buried in Beltway minutia. The ongoing blame game over who concocted the sequester is an excellent example. But it’s worth remembering that the goalposts in American politics aren’t set in backroom deals between politicians. They’re set in elections. And in the 2012 election, the American people were very clear on where they wanted the goalposts moved to.

It totally wasn’t Obama. Because, Woodward. Or something.

WaPo’s Ezra Klein slams ‘my colleague Bob Woodward.’ Seems Bob, in spite of all that reporting, just doesn’t get it. ow.ly/hZJHI

Shorter @ezraklein: What is this stuff Woodward calls reporting? I don’t like it & here’s why.

— John Nolte(@NolteNC) February 24, 2013

Shorter @ezraklein: Bob Woodward is old so, like the Constitution, he should be disregarded.

— Miké (@ThePantau) February 24, 2013

Zing! You see, Bob Woodward recently penned an article wherein he points out that sequestration was Obama’s idea.

Sequester was Obama’s solution. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out what Bob Woodward had to say: bit.ly/YkE4Lp

Scrambling to spin began immediately.

How has an hour gone by and no House GOP staffer has blasted out Woodward’s latest on Obama creating the sequester? washingtonpost.com/opinions/bob-w…

— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) February 22, 2013

Sadly unsurprising that when Bob Woodward criticizes POTUS, the Obama hallelujah chorus @ezraklein @daveweigel ride to the rescue.

— Michael Freeman (@michaelpfreeman) February 24, 2013

Truth? That doesn’t suit.

The left is perfectly willing to destroy Bob Woodward to protect the Democrat / Media narrative. They’re sick. #tcot

— RB (@RBPundit) February 24, 2013

@rbpundit Obviously Bob Woodward is a racist.

— Tommy (@FirstTeamTommy) February 24, 2013

Heh.

Poor, little Ezra has trouble dealing with facts. So, he just makes stuff up as he goes along. The mockery, and the lesson-teaching for little Ezra, was swift and awesome.

I have to laugh at @ezraklein knocking Bob Woodward for pointing out the fact that the #Sequester is Obama’s idea. #Journalism2013 #EpicFail

I especially love @ezraklein‘s last paragraph how about it doesn’t matter who concocted the sequester..

— S.M (@redsteeze) February 24, 2013

FYI: Everything in @ezraklein‘s blog post is wrong washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog… Including the conceit this pissant is Bob Woodward’s “colleague.”

— JP (@RileyRebel129) February 24, 2013

For some reason @ezraklein left out the part where Obama already got his tax hike on Jan 2nd washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog…

— Conn Carroll (@conncarroll) February 24, 2013

.@frankrichny @ezraklein how quickly we forget the “balanced approached” meme from the fiscal cliff. Where are *those* cuts Obama promised?

— Sean Hannity’s Hair (@SHannitysHair) February 24, 2013

@byronyork shorter Ezra Klein: sequester really isn’t law & obama won reelection &never mind we just raised taxes in Jan.

— Katie Bistritz (@ktbis244) February 24, 2013

Bob Woodward wrote a book on the budget deal (which included the sequester), but bloggers @ezraklein and others know the real story? Please.

— RB (@RBPundit) February 24, 2013

How cute. @ezraklein thinks he can take on Bob Woodward. Scram kid.. you’re not ready to sit at the adult table.

— Sean Agnew (@seanagnew) February 24, 2013

@ezraklein @ron_fournier @mattie96 I must have missed the part of Ezra’s tweet where he denied being Obama’s toady.

— Judge Elihu Smails (@JudgeElihu) February 24, 2013

Interesting discussion on sequester. Woodward: Obama is lying, changing goal post. Ezra Klein: Obama won in Nov and can do whatever he wants

— Paul Seale (@paulvseale) February 24, 2013

Lapdog 101: Facts don’t matter.

.@instapundit: @ezraklein is just a PR agent who dazzles those impressed with resumes consisting of college and blogging. Yawn.

— Kurt Schlichter (@KurtSchlichter) February 24, 2013

And an exit thought:

Think on this –>MT @mattie96: Woodward took down a president. @ezraklein defends one. That’s the future of journalism in a nutshell, folks.

— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) February 24, 2013

Boom. Alas, journalism is already on life-support. For whom the bell tolls? It tolls for thee, Fourth Estate.

I get the sense that Bob Woodward is speaking out so strongly 2show WH press corps what he thinks they shld b doing every day

We won’t hold our breath.
