In duel of ideas, RoJo comes unarmed

This could be amusing if it weren't so lame.  Our new Senator, Ron the Johnson, who has yet to offer a single specific idea about how to cut spending, challenges President Obama:

 U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson challenged President Obama to produce a "serious plan" to back up his pledge to reduce spending, saying he's confident Republicans would be willing to help him pass it.

Delivering the weekly Republican address, Johnson also said spending, deficits and the debt will be central in the pending debate over the 2011 spending bill and the need to raise the debt ceiling. The country could hit the debt ceiling by the end of March, and the Obama administration has warned of dire economic consequences if lawmakers do not raise the limit.

Johnson said any vote much be accompanied by "real reductions" in spending. "This will be the moment of truth when talk and rhetoric must be turned into action and tangible results," said Johnson, R-Oshkosh.

We really have gone though the looking glass if Mr. No Idea can get away with that.
