Howard Dean Threatens To Leave Democratic Party Over Obama's Budget - Will Media Notice?

Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean clearly doesn't like President Obama's budget.

Moments ago he tweeted his dismay actually saying, "If this is true I may have to become an independant [sic]":

Ignoring his poor spelling, the link went to the following BusinessWeek article:

Although the White House doesn’t advertise this fact in the six-page budget overview it put out this morning, the new budget eliminates nearly all of the cuts that sequestration imposes on the Pentagon. Instead of $500 billion in cuts, Obama proposes only $100 billion, and you have to look closely to spot it (“$200 billion in additional discretionary savings, with equal amounts from defense and nondefense programs”).

Methinks Mr. Dean wants more cuts in defense.

That said, will the Obama-loving media report the former DNC chairman's displeasure with the President's budget?

After all, someone who used to be that high up in the Democratic Party threatening to leave it should be newsworthy. Right?

Stay tuned.
