    thatís all there was to it

    quote 《My life》"
    Later, when I asked Bo about the bumper sticker, he said he didnít care what the critics said about McGovern, the Democrats were for the common people and the Republicans werenít, and thatís all there was to it.
    what does "thatís all there was to it" mean ?

    It means there's nothing left to be talked about.

    That's "the end of the story" - no additional comments are wanted or will be given.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
