    No intelligent conservative thinks cutting alone works.

    Idiot.

    Well I've only tried to explain that to the 'nuts around here about a hundred times.

    I'd like to hear Romney now reconcile that with his promise to balance the budget without touching defense and while giving the Rich another big tax cut.

    So how, specifically, would the 'intelligent' conservative balance the budget from where it is right now, i.e.,

    we're borrowing 40% of what we're spending.

    Let's hear the high IQ genius conservative plan on that, in detail.

    Of course you don't cut spending alone. You cut taxes too.

    There's a reason Romney can't crack the 30% barrier in the primaries.

    And then you need to cut even more because you've reduced your revenue.
