Honest to God, this was the top headline on WashingtonPost.com:
Obama to Order Cabinet To Identify Budget CutsConvening members for first time today, president is to ask for a combined $100M to be cut over the next 90 days, senior administration official says.
Cutting $100,000,000?

Federal outlays for 2009, according to the Obama Administration, are supposed to be $3,938,000,000,000. That`s, roughly, four million millions of dollars.

So, the Big Story today is that Obama wants to cut spending by about 1/40,000th of the budget?

Isn`t this just a transparent PR ploy?

Really, if the newspapers went bankrupt and were nationalized and run by the Obama Administration, would there be any noticeable difference?
