If there is a credible threat, then why don't they arrest the people who made it? I thought that's what the Patriot Act was for, spying on the terrorists so they can catch them.

Here are some vital questions to be asked:
Could an election be postponed if a "very serious credible threat" was obtained from the usual sources?
Example: (Terrorist group speaking) We will attack you if you hold elections!
Who would be in charge of calling the election off? Homeland Security? A house of congress? One man? A group of people
Now conspiracy theorists are going crazy saying Bush wants to steal the election again, etc... In reality though, Bush might not even be the one that uses this law. As long as this law would be out there any president might use it.
