Sorry if this is a repeat.

Bob:

I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. My bad. 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. The idea that the sequester was to force both sides to go back to try at a big or grand barain with a mix of entitlements and revenues (even if there were serious disagreements on composition) was part of the DNA of the thing from the start. It was an accepted part of the understanding from the start. Really. It was assumed by the Rs on the Supercommittee that came right after: it was assumed in the November-December 2012 negotiations. There may have been big disagreements over rates and ratios but that it was supposed to be replaced by entitlements and revenues of some form is not controversial. (Indeed, the discretionary savings amount from the Boehner-Obama negotiations were locked in in BCA: the sequester was just designed to force all back to table on entitlements and revenues.)

I agree there are more than one side to our first disagreement, but again think this latter issue is diffferent. Not out to argue and argue on this latter point. Just my sincere advice. Your call obviously.

My apologies again for raising my voice on the call with you. Feel bad about that and truly apologize.

Gene

4. thanks for noticing

giggle

I found the email several places, but it tickled me to use the FN one just to, you know, jiggle a few minds who might not think it was a real email if I posted it from another place.

5. The comments are hilarious

Even after their big story turns out to be a nothing burger they continue on.

He was told he would regret it!!!

6. While I used to respect Bob Woodward I now distrust anything he has to say

He can no longer be believed, and I think with this episode he has done himself in. However, there may still be hope for him, I hear there are several openings over at Faux News and I believe he'd do a bang up job with their audience.
