    No... if Bob was that, then why the hell did he say there was no need for apologizing in his reply letter and why the hell did he not bring up the so called threat at all in the reply?

    Saying that they don't need to apologize has no bearing on whether he recognized being threatened or not. Anyway...what do you think he should have done when feeling threatened...respond with an outright, "Bring it on, dudes"?

    No, he handled this quite well. He exposed them.

    If you do the math you will see that Obama beat Romney by 3.85 percent, that's almost 4 percent, eh? Furthermore the electoral vote was - Obama 332 and Romney 206, not close at all. Romney got his backside handed to him. The election was not close.

    OTOH back in 2004: http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/fe2004/fed...ctions2004.pdf, the election actually was close (But not as close as 2000.). Bush won with 50.73 percent over Kerry's 48.27 percent.

    Again, if you do the math Bush won by 2.46 percent. The electoral vote was - Bush 286 and Kerry 251. Compared to the recent election, a squeaker.

    Now you have the facts.

    The results you linked to were early numbers. I don't play that game.

    We're off topic here so I'll just say that Woodward has made his sequester story all about him. Most good journalists don't do that.

    Have a good day. I have a little work to do in my garden, catch you later.

    Less than 3%...just more than 3%...the difference is negligible. Either way, he still didn't have "most" of the people voting for him. Heck, Obama beat McCain by almost 10% and even then, nobody believed he won a landslide.

    I already told you that for your "most Americans" purpose, the Electoral vote is meaningless. Also, who cares about Bush? I don't. I never said most Americans wanted him either. Why are you throwing out useless, irrelevant information? Do you think it bolsters your erroneous position?

    Anyway...Woodward didn't make his sequester story about himself. He made his "threat" story about himself and about Obama...and rightly so.

    Any conservatives with a sense of decorum will come to regret ever having allowed themselves to jump on this manufactured, sensationalist story.

    What a hack! If Obama sent Woodward a valentine card, you would deem it a threat.

    The thing is...Obama would probably sign the card with: "Don't refuse this card or you'll regret it".

    Anyway, you might reassess what you've learned over your seventy years, because Obama IS pathetic and he disgusts me every time he opens his mouth.

    btw...just a heads up...you mention my Mama again and I'll be reporting you to the Mods. This one is the only thing I'll be giving you for free.
    Maybe, like Woodward, you feel threatened!

    Yea, leave his mama out of this. Poor, mama.

    No...Bob Woodward sees a threat...and yes, Obama scraped out a win in terms of the popular vote.

    Do you dispute any of that?
