Obama Shows Us His Scalpel
by

During last year’s second presidental debate, Obama dismissed McCain’s proposal to institute an across-the-board spending freeze. “That’s using a hatchet to cut the federal budget,” Obama said. “I want to use a scalpel…”

Though some of us had our suspicions, at the time Obama wasn’t saying what it would mean to cut government spending with a scalpel. But now we have a much better idea, as the Washington Post reports that President Obama will order his cabinet members to slash his $3.5 trillion budget by scalpel-riffic $100 million! Ed Morrissey notes, this represents a cut of .0029%.

As I wrote during the campaign, I prefer McCain’s hatchet, though a chainsaw would be ideal.
