Washington DC.--Bob Woodward helped take down a president, if you believe what he writes. He also still lives off that fame, like an aging rocking star that can't come to grips with being a one hit wonder.
Carl Bernstein, who also broke the Watergate story, never achieved the fame that Woodward did, but enjoys that fact.
"I never cared about the fame like Woodward did, because my job as a journalist is to report the facts, not get rich off of them. Woodward likes the attention that comes from breaking and making news." Bernstein said of his old pal.
Bob Woodward loves to write books, sometimes the facts aren't always right, but since he is white, well, he can get away with that.
His latest book about Obama got a source fired. That source was General James Jones.
"I am an important voice of America, and it is my job to record history." Bob Woodward said in a recent interview on Bill O'Reilly.
"I think it is important that the American people know what is going on, and I don't care who goes down because of my honest reporting." Woodward added after a lengthy pause.
Bob Woodward doesn't seem to get that he isn't that important, and that Richard Nixon was going to fail with or without him reporting Watergate.
"I like Bob, but he is such a prima dona. He can't seem to grasp that concept that what he writes about really isn't that great of importance, because years to come people will view the facts from different sources and see that he was nothing more than a man that thought too highly of himself." Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.
There is no doubt that Bob Woodwards knows how to sell books, and new book "Obama's Wars" is currently number one on the New York Times Best Seller list for Hardcover Non-fiction. This only means that he is only receiving mixed messages from the American public
