Details, shmetails!

It looks like North Carolina conservative candidates and think tanks aren’t the only ones having trouble when pressed to identify actual, meaningfully significant spending cuts that they would implement. Check out this transcript of an interview that took place yesterday on, of all places, FOX News (which appears on Think Progress) in which Chris Wallace prods California U.S. Senate Carly Fiorina candidate to name one federal spending cut she’d implement. Here’s the set-up:

Today on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace gave Fiorina a chance to lay out her actual plan. Touting her ‘tough, bottom-line business executive’ motto, Wallace pointed out that Fiorina also wants ‘to extend all, all the Bush tax cuts which would add $4 trillion dollars to the deficit…where are you going to find $4 trillion dollars to cut?’ But when Fiorina retreated to recycled response of government waste and an earmarks ban, a frustrated Wallace begged Fiorina seven times to ‘name one single entitlement expenditure you’re willing to cut’ because ‘that’s where the money is.’ Fiorina’s only response? ‘You’re asking a typical political question'”

Sounds awfully familiar, doesn’t it?
