More. That’s what Republicans who might soon run for president want, when it comes to spending cuts.
At this weekend’s Greenville, South Carolina GOP Convention, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour declared that if this weekend’s budget deal had been played out on a baseball diamond, then Republicans had a nice first trip to the plate. But, now it’s time to keep swinging.
“You can’t always get everything you want in the first time at bat,” Barbour said. “The good news is, Boehner and his good Republicans have left us two more times at bat just in this inning.”
Those next at-bats will be the upcoming debates on raising the debt ceiling, and the 2012 budget. Barbour also said the 2012 presidential election will be the most important in his lifetime.
