Radio host Laura Ingraham and Vice President Mike Pence (whom she referred to as a "friend of too many years") traded barbs on Ingraham's radio show this morning. The back-and-forth made headlines after the host asked if he was still a "deficit hawk".

In the interview with Pence on Wednesday, Ingraham said, "Back in 2010 you were described by many, including me, as a deficit hawk. That the way you saw government was that it was one of our sacred responsibilities not to pile future debt and big deficits on future generations. And yet in this budget that we're looking at -- at least the outlines of it --- the priorities the President struck last night, it's not clear how we're going to be trimming this deficit after we've had some success in doing so with these sequester cuts in previous years."
