Hacksaw blade. Wrap a rag or something around one end and slip it between the toilet and the closet flange.

Mini hack saws work great at this.

Dremel with a cut off blade. Make sure you protect the toilet porcelain with a couple of layers of Duck Tape.

That would cut the bolt, but good luck ever getting the nut off again later.

Joe,

I have cut toilet bolts plenty of time with a bolt cutter, the nut will unscrew and re-cut the threads.
