How is this not treason?

I took this excerpt from my wife’s blog, Enlightenment 2012.. To read the entire post go to

How is it not treason to orchestrate a plan to purposely sink the president of the United States, and successfully hurt Americans in the process?

The past four years of Republican blocked Democratic solutions was a conscious and documented plan of attack on the sinking of the first black president of the United States, and the entire Democratic party, according to the New York Times bestselling author Robert Draper. He has masterfully written a timely expose, “Do Not Ask What Good We Do,” published by Free Press in New York. Presidential 2012 Republican candidate Ryan Paul is said to have been part of the undermining plan to ruin a president and his nation at any and all costs.
According to Houghton Mifflin Dictionary, the definition of treason: trea·so (trzn) KEY NOUN: 1. Violation of allegiance toward one’s country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one’s country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies. 2. A betrayal of trust or confidence.
“You could fit the number of Republicans who were out on the town the night of Barack Obama’s inauguration around a single dining room table,” begins the prologue of “Do Not Ask What Good We Do,”, explaining “there were about fifteen of them, all white males, plus a few spouses. The venue was the Caucus Room, an expense-account steakhouse halfway between the White House and the Capitol. A seething winter chill was the least of their discomforts that evening. Nearly a half-million people had begun to congregate on the National Mall on Sunday, January 18, 2009 – two days before the inauguration. By the time Obama was sworn in on Tuesday, the number had reached 1.8 million. The nation’s capital had never hosted a crowd this large, not for any reason…
“On such a night, it was a comfort to suffer among friends. Most of them – Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan, Pete Sessions, Jeb Hansarling, Pete Hoekstra, and Dan Lungren – were members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Five of them served in the Senate: Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn, John Ensign, and Bob Corker. The other three invitees were conservative journalist Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, former House Speaker (and former presidential candidate) Newt Gingrich, and communications specialist Frank Luntz…
“Luntz had organized the dinner … they all agreed to attack Obama personally…
“But everyone’s got to stick together,” said Paul Ryan, a thirty-eight-year-old Wisconsin congressman and numbers fetishist whose shiny earnestness recalled an Ozzie and Harriet America … The only way we’ll succeed is if we are united,” Ryan told the others. “If we tear ourselves apart, we’re finished …
” ‘You will remember this day,’ Newt Gingrich proclaimed to the others as they said goodbye. ‘You’ll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown.”
Again I have to ask, how is it not treason to orchestrate a plan to purposely sink the president of the United States, and successfully hurt Americans in the process?
