The White House has not announced that Barack and Michelle will discontinue taking separate vacations, abandon their "Let Them Eat Cake!" callousness, or make reductions in their personal staff. Does any First Lady really need 27 personal assistants?
The White House is arguing that Republicans chose tax breaks for millionaires over meals for seniors.
Can it not be said that the Obama administration chose Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, which is led by a 9/11 Troofer who has said that Jews are descendants of "apes and pigs," over meals for seniors?
The White House has screamed that #Sequestersquatch will devour the medicine of disabled kids and - literally - take the food out of the mouths of children.
Can it not be said that the White House is as clueless as Education Department Deputy Secretary Anthony Miller and Transportation Department Deputy Secretary John Porcari, who have absolutely, positively no idea how much money their departments spend on travel, conferences and consultants?
