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
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.

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…

Truth? That doesn’t suit.
The left is perfectly willing to destroy Bob Woodward to protect the Democrat / Media narrative. They’re sick. #tcot

@rbpundit Obviously Bob Woodward is a racist.

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

@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.

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

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
