1.) Obama’s enemies list — Bob Woodward probably isn’t getting an invite to this year’s White House Christmas Party. TheDC’s Jeff Poor reports:
“On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s ‘The Situation Room,’ The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward told host Wolf Blitzer that the White House has begun threatening him and trying to make him ‘uncomfortable’ in retaliation for his report last week that President Barack Obama repeatedly lied about advocating for the sequester trigger. Knowing that the explosive allegation is ‘irrefutable,’ Woodward said, White House officials refused to appear on CNN to defend the president, and instead opted for intimidation tactics.”
Stay classy, White House.
UPDATE: The alleged threatening email has now been revealed and, well, it doesn’t sound quite so threatening.
Stay classy, Michael Moore.
3.) No food for you — Hungry homeless people are going to needlessly remain hungry, TheDC’s Caroline May reports:
“Louisiana officials are considering solutions after state health inspectors destroyed 1,600 lbs of deer meat donated by hunters to a local homeless shelter. Rev. Henry Martin, executive director of the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission, which provides food and shelter for the homeless in Northwest Louisiana, told The Daily Caller that the organization had been serving deer meat donated by area hunters for decades and, to his knowledge, nothing like this had ever happened before. ‘There was no need for this to happen — we’ve got hungry people who need meals. That very day, we have about 230 people on average in our system, and you multiply that by three meals a day, times 365 days a year, you’re going to get well over 200,000 meals,’ he said, explaining that the charity needs as much food as it can get.”
Stay classy, state health inspectors.
4.) Let the sequester fester — Well, this makes no sense. TheDC’s Vince Coglianese reports:
“President Barack Obama will wait until the sequester hits to have his first sequester-related face-to-face meeting with congressional leaders on Friday, according to a report by ABC News’s Jonathan Karl: ‘A congressional source with direct knowledge of the plans tells me the top four congressional leaders – John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell – will meet with President Obama at the White House Friday to attempt to negotiate a way to avoid the spending cuts that both sides have said should be avoided,’ Karl reported Wednesday.”
Stay classy, President Obama.
