Well, and shame on me for allowing myself to be even a tiny bit surprised!
Sean Hannity led into his interview with Bob Woodward tonight by quoting only in part from the email where Gene Sperling says Woodward will regret saying Obama moved the goalposts on the sequester by asking for revenues. Sean ended his quote with the “regret” part and completely ignored the lengthy and wonky factual explanation of why Woodward would regret it (which I quoted in a post earlier today). That explanation shows that Sperling meant Woodward would be embarrassed by his position, not that the White House would come after him.
As Woodward has become more and more anti-Obama, Sean has had him on his show more often. I think he let his liking for Woodward override the best way to handle this situation, which is to let it die ASAP. Sean isn’t helping the conservative cause here. He should have followed the lead of fellow conservatives who quickly backed away from the story today when the emails were released.
