Budget makes cuts, and uses Enron accounting

OK, Enron accounting might be a bit harsh. But the fact is that as much as I love the cuts in spending, the budget leaves out the cost of Iraq and Afghanistan operations.

Great! That means when I balance my checkbook, I'll just leave the cost of my mortgage out of it, thus netting me an additional $1150 each month! Sure, the mortgage will actually have to get paid, but why sweat the details?

Like I said, I am a big supporter of the President, but unlike the Clinton Kool-Aid Drinkers of the left, I am actually capable of whacking the administration when it's called for. Spending cuts: good! Fuzzy math: not good!

Oh, yeah...full story here.
