‘A Kind of Madness That I Haven’t Seen In a Long Time’

Madness is an interesting word choice.

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.”


Most in the media are clearly uncomfortable with Woodward challenging Obama. Attacking their own, one of the Old Guard and a bona fide Nixon enemy, is truly a sign of strange days. Woodward is merely telling the truth, which is dangerous for your career and reputation in these times, particularly for the younger, less experienced reporters who don’t have emeritus status.

Was Woodward referring back to Nixon and Watergate?
