What difference, at this point, does it make whose idea the sequester was? For a while, the White House was succeeding in its effort to pin the scheduled budget cuts on House Republicans, but the GOP fought back, with several legislators changing their Twitter avatars to a highlighted passage from Bob Woodward’s book, “The Price of Politics,” tracing the origin of the sequester to the White House.

The White House was “not happy” with that development, Woodward told Wolf Blitzer tonight, with a “very senior person” emailing that Woodward would “regret doing this.”

Remember, it took being shut out of the president’s golf match with Tiger Woods to give the press a clue that perhaps this wasn’t the most transparent administration ever.
