So very disappointed


The Cabinet met this morning, and afterwards GeeDubya did a blow-by-blow for the press: “We talked about the fact that the bridge collapsed”. “We spent a fair amount of time talking about the fact that how disappointed we are that Congress hasn’t sent any spending bills to my desk.”


He complained that Democrat-proposed increases in discretionary spending would amount to $205 billion over 5 years, which he noted “averages out to about $112 million per day, $4.7 million per hour, $78,000 per minute.” But wait, there’s more: “Put another way, that’s about $1,300 in higher spending every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every year for the next five years.” Funny how he never breaks down spending for the Iraq war that way.
