On July 3, 2008, Barack Obama said in a speech: "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 the national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents -- Number 43 (George W. Bush) added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."
We now have $16 trillion of debt that's an additional $7 trillion in just four years.
If President Obama thought Bush was irresponsible and unpatriotic back then, what must he think of himself now.
