    I totally agree.

    A lot of people in this country can't handle the truth.

    I offer this thread as evidence of that.

    There was no threat. All we have here is a comment stating that Woodward would "regret" writing the piece--which I interpret to mean regret, as in the regret one has after stepping in dog poop.

    Some would have you believe that he's growing senile. I'm astonished by some of the low public criticism.

    false.

    you are guilty of it.

    if a boss asks a women out, and she says no but is extremely polite while saying no, then later comes forward saying she felt threatened.

    the boss is going to point to that friendly email exchange to prove she wasn't threatened. she still has a harassment case. a person in power telling a subordinate that they will regret their decision can be construed as a threat.

    This thread reinforces all the problems we face as a nation. useful idiots on one side of the partisan divide always rush forward to make sure nobody digs deeper into potential governmental overreach.

    the threat is the email. This email threat is ambiguous.

    It's odd. George Soros, who's older than dirt, somehow remains something other than a senile old fool buried in greed to some.

    lets ask him.

    If he really felt threatened he might of been lying in the email. then later he decided to sack up and not cower from those in power.

    You really are naive. Must be a conservative trait.

    Woodward vs. White House: Washington at its weirdest - The Washington Post

    Only in Washington does a tempest turn on the meaning of the word “regret.”

    ...In an interview with CNN on Wednesday night, Woodward never used the word “threat” or said that he felt threatened. But he said Thursday: The White House has “the power. When someone says ‘you’ll regret something,’ they can use their power any way they want. It’s a tone question. . . . I’ve been dealing with White House people going back to the Nixon years. They called us every name in the book. [This] just strikes me as not a way to deal with this. It makes me uncomfortable.”

    In a statement, the White House said that as “Mr. Woodward noted, the email from [Sperling] was sent to apologize for voices being raised in their previous conversation. The note suggested that Mr. Woodward would regret the observation he made regarding the sequester because that observation was inaccurate, nothing more.
