Whatever he cuts will be done by him and he will be held accountable.

It's quite normal for Government to cut where it hurts most when they are forced to cut. Examples are towns always cut COPs and firefighters FIRST. They NEVER cut parks and rec, community centers, city hall staff, roads, sewer and water, electric utilities, planning, city manager, police cheif, fire cheif, utility manager, town vehicles, management bonuses, economic development, historical planning, council and mayor pay, tree trimming etc.

They ALWAYS cut COPs and firefighters.

You watch what Obama cuts, it WILL hurt the most......

The polls ALL show that the Republicans are taking the blame for the sequester by a considerable margin.

The worst part of all of the sequester is the gloom and doom that has been coming from the President and his mouthpieces. This man is determined that if he doesn't get his way he'll make sure everyone pays for not allowing him to do whatever he wants.

Why is the media not calling him on these exaggerated claims? They are quick to make sure the comments get publicized but where is their duty of checking the facts.

And you know that every bad piece of economic news will be blamed on this and the Republicans. And the low information voter believes this crap because the media is Oblamos lap dog.

This is because the Republicans don't know what to do or how to respond. In addition, the bias carried out by the media only allows for claims the liberals make to seem truthful. This is shameful that the once neutral media is now a propaganda tool for the left.
Article 3 Section 3

Section 3 defines treason and its punishment.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
The Constitution defines treason as specific acts, namely "levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." A contrast is therefore maintained with the English law, whereby a variety of crimes, including conspiring to kill the King or "violating" the Queen, were punishable as treason. In Ex Parte Bollman, 8 U.S. 75 (1807), the Supreme Court ruled that "there must be an actual assembling of men, for the treasonable purpose, to constitute a levying of war."[12]

Under English law effective during the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, there were essentially five species of treason.[citation needed] Of the five, the Constitution adopted only two: levying war and adhering to enemies. Omitted were species of treason involving encompassing (or imagining) the death of the king, certain types of counterfeiting, and finally fornication with women in the royal family of the sort which could call into question the parentage of successors. James Wilson wrote the original draft of this section, and he was involved as a defense attorney for some accused of treason against the Patriot cause.

Section 3 also requires the testimony of two different witnesses on the same overt act, or a confession by the accused in open court, to convict for treason. This rule was derived from an older English statute, the Treason Act 1695.[13] In Cramer v. United States, 325 U.S. 1 (1945), the Supreme Court ruled that "[e]very act, movement, deed, and word of the defendant charged to constitute treason must be supported by the testimony of two witnesses."[14] In Haupt v. United States, 330 U.S. 631 (1947), however, the Supreme Court found that two witnesses are not required to prove intent; nor are two witnesses required to prove that an overt act is treasonable. The two witnesses, according to the decision, are required to prove only that the overt act occurred (eyewitnesses and federal agents investigating the crime, for example).

Punishment for treason may not "work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person" so convicted. The descendants of someone convicted for treason could not, as they were under English law, be considered "tainted" by the treason of their ancestor. Furthermore, Congress may confiscate the property of traitors, but that property must be inheritable at the death of the person convicted.

In Federalist No. 43 James Madison wrote regarding the Treason Clause:

As treason may be committed against the United States, the authority of the United States ought to be enabled to punish it. But as new-fangled and artificial treasons have been the great engines by which violent factions, the natural offspring of free government, have usually wreaked their alternate malignity on each other, the convention have, with great judgment, opposed a barrier to this peculiar danger, by inserting a constitutional definition of the crime, fixing the proof necessary for conviction of it, and restraining the Congress, even in punishing it, from extending the consequences of guilt beyond the person of its author.
Based on the above quoted excerpt it was noted by lawyer William J. Olson in an Amicus curiae in the case Hedges v. Obama that the Treason Clause was one of the enumerated powers of the federal government.[15] He also stated that by defining treason in the U.S. Constitution and placing it in Article III "the founders intended the power to be checked by the judiciary, ruling out trial by military commission. As Madison noted, the Treason Clause also was designed to limit the power of the federal government to punish its citizens for “adhering to [the United States’s] enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”"

What you fools seem to forgoet is that the American voters soundly rejected your BS at the polls.

If you bring the same crap to the polls in 2014, you'll get the same results.

Obama was elected because of promises of free stuff and concessions to gays, mexicans, blacks, students, hores,

If the libs are able to promise more free stuff they will be able to once again buy votes..
