Political analyst Dick Morris believes Bob Woodward was right on the money and not exaggerating about what has been called a threat against him by an Obama Administration official.

“If there’s one guy in Washington who people can and should trust, and only one guy, he’s Bob Woodward,’’ Morris, told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’



“This man has written 10 to 15 books … all going out on a limb and identifying confidential stuff that went on in the White House in every administration.

“He’s always been proven right, he’s never been contradicted successfully, and he’s always sticking his neck out and he’s always correct.’’

Woodward, a Pultizer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter who co-authored “All the President’s Men, revealed this week he was told he’d “regret’’ criticizing President Barack Obama on sequestration negotiations.

The man who made the remark has been identified as White House economic adviser Gene Sperling.

Morris, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton, said since Woodward’s complaint, the press has ganged up on him.

But, Morris told Malzberg, “When the chief economic adviser says you will regret having taken that position – that is not an expression of ideological discontent. It’s a threat.’’
