My answer is yes they -- and it's a -- latest result on news watch a little more than a week ago is after the election.
Bob Woodward had a very good piece in the Washington Post on Sunday.
In which he revealed.
What everybody pretty much already knew -- wasn't wasn't -- and that was that Jack Lew who is now the president's senate nominee for Treasury Secretary.
When he was White House chief -- in fact it was his and the president's idea for this whole sequestration business in the first place so what does the White House reaction then why beating up on Bob Woodward of course a friend supposedly someone who was with the Washington Post which is editorially and otherwise.
-- the president and virtually all of his program much this is.
I think journalistic malpractice frankly the media all of -- information including the effects sofa sequestration and overspending long before the election but it was spoon fed by the White House and basically passed along a little White House has gospel light footprint grows and all of the Media Research Center -- certain reaction in recent days I think this is pretty straightforward.

It is to their shame.
