Video: Sen. Barack Obama Says It's 'Unpatriotic' To Rack Up $4 Trillion in Debt
Do I really need to comment on this? Ok. They told me if I voted for McCain the national debt would be used as a patriotism litmus test, and they were right!
“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents -- number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child,” Obama said on July 3, 2008, at a campaign event in Fargo, N.D.
“That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic,” said candidate Obama.
However, in less than three years in office, Obama has driven up the national debt by $4 trillion himself.
In reacting to the resurrected comments today, TOTUS said: "Hey, don't blame me. They didn't take me on the road for that trip and lookie what happened. Dude can barely remember his own name without me. Heh."
