You know in your heart that Obama will sign any cuts for the DoD, but will veto any for liberal sacred-cow programs. Unless the Republicans put that bill forward without a severability clause, Obama will just be getting everything he wants. Come to think of it, the man has already demonstrated that he fears no court findings against him. He'll do something extralegal, if not totally illegal, to get his way. We all knew the Super Committee was designed to fail, but that even in a fail, the Democrats get more of what they want than Republicans can get. You know that Republicans would have fought tooth and nail to guard the DoD, while the Democrats will offer up only token programs that are not actually benefitting any unionistas or liberals. Gone will be anything that benefits conservatives; protected will be anything that benefits the Left. It was all a set up, and I called it that back when the news of the Super Committee was first aired this past summer. I have absolutely no faith in this government whatsoever, not after it came to light that Congress can do insider trading with impunity. No faith, man. No faith. Rule of law? Shot to hell and not coming back.

Good f*ing luck. You knew, in you heart, what this would come to.
Well, the Super Committee did fail. Now we just need to make sure that the Congress follows through on the promised "mandatory" cuts.
