Turnbull’s position on budget

I am a cabinet minister, I support unreservedly, and wholeheartedly every element in the budget, every single one.

Malcolm Turnbull, 5 June 2014, SMH.

That qualification is curious though. Is he saying he supports it as/while/because he is a cabinet minister?

The context for this is interesting too. One would almost think Abbott has signaled to his cheersquad (Bolt, Jones et al.) to go after Turnbull, which, if anything, looks to be backfiring.
