Math is hard.

The White House budget office is recalculating how to apply automatic spending cuts for a handful of agencies, freeing up almost $4 billion for the Pentagon and another $1 billion or so for Homeland Security Department and NASA.

Capitol Hill aides familiar with the White House changes say the administration has identified almost $5 billion in cuts that can be restored under its reading of the arcane budget rules governing the across-the-board cuts, known as sequestration. The calculations would restore $5 billion of the scheduled $85 billion in automatic sequestration cuts.

So, not only was The Idiot King’s Sequester Scare Theater a complete critical and box office failure, it didn’t even work for them when they cut too much.

It’s also SUCH a comfort to know that there is no one handy who can properly read the rules when it’s time to make big decisions.

Four more years.

I'm learning that it doesn't matter what any law says. The cool thing about governing is you seem to get to pick and choose what you want to obey and how much. How great is that?

Well, three and 2/3 more years. But who's counting?
