the bolt is flush with the dropout. although, i could try that becausei have a new dropout. so i could cut through the whole thing

Is the bolt accessible from the outside? It looks like it might be based upon the non drive side. If so, drill from that side and you will probably find that the drilling process unscrews it. If not and you drill it right through, then you can get the easy out in and use a small adjustable wernch to extract. Pretty small bolt to have drill out though.
