Obama's orphan...


...and it's four Pinocchios** (i.e. whoppers, scroll down here for scale): "As the saying goes, success has a thousand fathers, while failure is an orphan. And if there ever is an orphan in Washington these days, it is that odd duck known as 'sequestration.'" [WP]. More about this and tub Mardell lying (again) from David Preiser over at BBBC: "Mark Mardell is lying. I say he’s lying and not merely reporting something when he’s misinformed, or making a claim based on false information for which he’s not responsible. I’m saying Mardell is lying because he knows what he’s saying is not true."

** A wooden puppet that tells lies...hey! And P.S. They don't like it up 'em.

Update 28th Feb: word is spreading. "A nasty, brutish, imperial presidency", Nile Gardiner in the DT today. "The threats being dished out to Woodward, Davis and others are extremely disturbing in a free society, and are a reflection of an imperial presidency that acts with impunity and is highly intolerant of dissent."

Funnily enough I've posted about the media backlash against Woodward - and it isn't from just the usual suspects either.

No, I suspect they all get the same treatment.
