Rob Nabors, the deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget , declined on a Tuesday conference call to reveal which programs would be affected by the Obama administration’s proposed freeze on non-discretionary defense spending.
Nabors told reporters that the administration has been going through the federal budget “line by line” to make sure that Obama’s domestic priorities were fully funded, while cutting other aspects of the budget that were not necessary during lean times. But he said the public would have to wait until next Monday, when the Obama administration announces its budget, for details on which programs will be affected.
“I’m not in a position to say right now,” he said.
Nabors also shot down the idea that the proposal was a political calculation aimed at making Obama appear as a centrist, with liberals decrying the move for going too far and conservatives arguing it doesn’t go far enough.
“This isn’t a plan of triangulation,” he insisted. “This is a plan of necessity.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
