What was that about “unpatriotic”?

At Conservative Byte

Although the national debt under President Barack Obama has increased $4 trillion since he took office in 2009, as a presidential candidate in 2008 Obama criticized then-President George W. Bush for adding $4 trillion to the national debt, saying it was “unpatriotic” and also “irresponsible” to saddle future generations with such a large national debt.


The flashback video is here.

Kind of reminds me of one president recalling a certain other president’s “misery index” to point out that it far exceeded that of a president Mr. Misery Index had used it to criticize.

That Obama character sure does put his foot in his mouth an awful lot, doen’t he, before the fact.

    Hmmm, so when will the Federal Government or the President be filing for protective bankruptcy … Seems like the only options left now!

    One thing about our Democrats: They’ll never admit defeat ala declaring bankruptcy, LOL.

    They’ll just continue to sell government financial instruments (T-bills, T-bonds, T-notes) to other countries, principally those who have anything but America’s best interests at heart, bringing us further into debt while they continue clamoring for Congress to allow them to raise taxes, which the Republicans will refuse to do, then they’ll blame the Republicans for all our economic woes, for a recession that was started by the Democrats with their mortgage nonsense.

    They will never learn that you can’t solve every problem by throwing money at it, that sometimes you have to think it through and determine a way to eliminate the problem’s root cause. For the Democrats, it’s all about needlessly and lazily peeing away the people’s hard earned tax dollars, then raising taxes in a futile attempt to recoup their squanderings.

    Obama isn’t going to let a few facts get in the way of his re-election campaign. He’ll blow this off & blame someone else for the problem. For example, he’ll state that the Dems “had” to spend the money for the Stimulus because of the irresponsible spending of the previous Administration.

    ..isn’t going to let a few facts get in the way…

    The liberal credo, right? :-)

    Barack Hussein has been blaming Bush, and W’s Administration, for every Obama screw-up and failed policy ever since he lied and weaseled his way into the Oval Office, and will continue to do so for the rest of the tragedy he calls a presidency.

    Of course, since he and his left-wing-lobbyists-turned-administration-officials don’t actually have any realistic answers to anything, if they didn’t play the blame game they’d have nothing to say at all.
