A Somewhat Inconsistent Message

Senator Conrad Burns (R-Montana) is locked in a close race with Democratic candidate Jon Tester. Among the messages Burns has used to court voters is this one from his campaign website:
With a seat on the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Burns has been able to bring in over $2 billion in federal funds to the state since he took office. He has been a champion of a fiscally conservative government ...
In one breath, Burns brags about treating the federal budget as if it were his personal slush fund for pork-barrel projects. In the next breath, he identifies himself as "fiscally conservative."

Do the taxpayers of Montana see any disconnect here?
