Obama Called Smaller Bush Debt Rise “Unpatriotic”

The new borrowing requested by the CURRENT president would raise the debt ceiling to $16.4 trillion. The debt stood at $10.6 trillion when Obama took office. That’s an increase of $5.8 trillion, nearly $2 trillion more than the “unpatriotic” figure cited by Obama in the video.

Obama has done nothing during his three years as president to address the central cause of the debt run up – the unsustainable increases in entitlement spending. And he has actually worsened the deficit with a feckless $800 billion stimulus bill and a new $1 trillion health care entitlement.

So this is not the Bush deficit. It is the Obama deficit, and it’s threatening to ruin the country




More 'Rat hypocrisy.

President Bush kept his numbers down by keeping two wars off the books.

But then, you knew that.

Pathetic.

Red Herring: - the informal fallacy of presenting an argument that may in itself be valid, but does not address the issue in question.


Pathetic.

It's no such thing. It demonstrated that your post was a lie, as were Bush's debt numbers.

Try to keep up.

1. Obama called Bush "unpatriotic" and "irresponsible" for adding trillions to the debt.

Fact. He did it, we have the video.

2. Obama himself is adding trillions to the debt.

Fact. He did it, we have the budget numbers.

3. Is Obama "unpatriotic" and "irresponsible" for adding trillions to the debt?

A - Yes, he is unpatriotic and irresponsible.

B - No, he's a hypocrite.

Pathetic.

"In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act." -George Orwell, '1984'

In Liberal/Leftist politics, reality is an inconvenience best ignored. But unfortunately for the liberal agenda, 'reality' is that thing that even when you stop believing in it, is still there. As with all liberal experiments in social engineering, it’s the ‘good intentions’ that matter, not the ‘results’.

Ken,
I find us agreeing more and more lately. Interesting.
"If anyone, concerned really for truth, undertake the confutation of my hypothesis, I promise him either to recant my mistake, upon fair conviction; or to answer his difficulties. But he must remember two things: First, that cavilling here and there, at some expression, or little incident of my discourse, is not an answer to my book. Secondly, that I shall not take railing for arguments, nor think either of these worth my notice". John Locke, (First Treatise, Preface).

It's stupid to run a deficit during a prosperous economy. But it's standard Keynsian economics to run a deficit to get a country out of a recession.

That said, I would like to see budget cuts and tax increases to eliminate the deficit.

No argument from me as long as you extend that to the corporations. Take away all benefits from the poor, tax breaks for corporations and end all foreign aid, deficit problem solved :)

Agreed. No bailouts, perpetual or otherwise, for any person (corporate or otherwise), for any reason at any time.

You are welcome to live in your little fantasy world where it's every man for himself. Your "I've got mine, screw everybody else" society might work for you but I'm sure it's not what the more sane people in this society want.

Your looter Libbie thug mentality will see the country to insolvency. Perhaps, if you had succeeded at life, then you, yourself could fund your grandiose spending delusions, instead of trying to force yourself (and your insane in the membrane human pets) onto others.

From spending, not from lack of income.

The income to the US treasury rises every year, yet the deficit increases.

We don't have a tax problem, we have a spending problem.

And Barry O is an unpatriotic hypocrite for adding to the debt.
