    I'd say the so-called conservatives are doing their damnest to make 'the threat' THE story out of this....
    Yeah, What's Benghazi got to do with it?

    It is an interesting quirk of 'conservatives' the past still fresh on our minds and the fallout still playing out is 'the past' but what happened in a chaotic European country in the 30's is on every 'conservative' tongue.

    And while you seem quick to forget the entire 'fixation' as it suits you... let's not forget the constant 'conservative' drumbeat to try and use 18th century mindset to lead us into the 21st century....
    Sorry, dude...much as you might like me to justify and support your stereotype of conservatives...I won't. But hey...if you want to be like a racist...go ahead. I won't stop your dismal, pathetic outlook. I'll just be sad for you.

    I believe he did this as an attempt to remain relevant.

    Laughing, You and I have spoken on other topics before, you have supported it well...

    Now why are you bringing race into this?

    back on topic, even if you want to wander off, the BushII administration made shunning a high art form. Mr.Woodward has jumped the shark on this. He wasn't threatened with anything, just two 'friends' exchanging E-mails over a difference of opinion. no rage, no 'or else', nothing of the sort.

    And let us not forget, Mr. Woodward replied there was no need to apologize and all was good.

    Oh, and while you are at it, you should check out Obama's approval ratings. They stink. They show that plenty of Democrats disagree with him, as well.
    I think you are going to regret saying that.

    Oh my God, I just threatened you! Please don't report me!

    As for his approval ratings, this is from yesterday's Rasmussen poll - that well known liberally biased pollster

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ..._index_history

    Coincidentally, exactly the same as his percentage of the vote in the November election. Go figure.

    PS I'd advise you to quit on this one.

    Are you seriously saying his approval rating is good?

    LOL!!!

    If so, you don't expect much from Obama, do you?

    Compared to George Bush's, it's sensational. I'm also saying that 47% of the population would disapprove of President Obama if he invented a cure for Cancer and brought world peace. It's called partisan political bull****. The hatred engendered by the right wing hate machine is truly spectacular.

    Oh...I'm not bringing race into anything...except to compare your stereotypical attitude toward conservatives as being similar to a racists attitude.

    The funny thing is...the White House and Obama apologists are all getting on Woodward, but none of you all...especially the guy who made the threat...are even attempting to explain what was meant by it. Sounds like a whole lot of damage control going on. Some in a quite aggressive manner.

    Oh well. Typical Obama political machine activity.

    LOL, there you go again! Use the term and then back away, very ahhhh bold of you...

    I'd say the better term is bigoted not a lame attempt to use racist.

    Given what you post and your POV I'd say YOU are doing a very good job of promoting the 'conservative' stereotype. Several have explained the COMMENT,(I use comment as if you think that is a threat your man card is in danger) and what was meant by it. Sperling himself said he meant Mr.Woodward would regret staking out his position and nothing more sinister than that. At the time Mr.Woodward seemed to agree.

    why some of us are 'getting on' Mr.Woodward is simple. He wasn't threatened but all he can talk about, as he becomes the story across the media, is his claim he was.
