I am tempted to resort to last year's fashionable word "oxymoron" to describe Cameron's position.
The question is: is Cameron's position on growth and the deficit consistent, or is it fundamentally flawed?
In my view, it is the latter. Cameron is right to want to "go for growth", but wrong to argue that this position is consistent with a bigger assault on the deficit than the present government is planning.
Almost any sane economist would agree.
But sane economists are in short supply. So a lot don't.
