President Obama at a little bit of fun with the recent "Bob Woodward Threats."
At the Gridiron Dinner Saturday night, Obama said:
"Some folks couldn't make it this evening," Obama said during his remarks at the dinner. "Bob Woodward sends his regrets, which Gene Sperling predicted. I have to admit this whole brouhaha had me a little surprised. Who knew Gene could be so intimidating? Or let me phrase it differently: Who knew anybody named Gene could be this intimidating? Now I know that some folks think we responded to Woodward too aggressively. But, hey, ... can anybody tell me when an administration has ever regretted picking a fight with Bob Woodward? What's the worst that could happen?"
