When the Whitehouse Spokeperson announced that the President was cutting "$100 million dollars," the press corps actually laughed in disbelief at the trivial amount (when compared to the almost unimaginable deficit spending). By comparison, this would be like you or me borrowing $60,000 with no idea how to pay it back...but claiming that we were fiscally responsible because we found a way to cut $6 out of our yearly expenses.
The Whitehouse admits that the total budgets cuts amount to nothing monetarily, but has "symbolic value" for the American public. I think we've seen this "symbol" before...and the "bird" that's flying ain't no American Eagle...
