Obama Flashback: Adding $4 Trillion to the Debt Is Irresponsible and Unpatriotic

On July 3, 2008 — the day before Independence Day — Barack Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was irresponsible and “unpatriotic.

But that was before he was president and before he added a record $4 trillion to the national debt in only 2 and a half years.

The US national debt has now officially increased by $4 trillion under Barack Obama. He blames George W. Bush.

    Obama saved us from a DEPRESSION. We shoud be thanking him.

  • Militant Conservative

    No Gus, Obama has caused a depression.

    It’s in the cards folks, willful intent.

    I’m ready for it. No ya can’t have any of mine.

    Select few will be in my lifeboat.

    Well, No one ever accused him of responsible or patriotic…or honest.

  • rbosque

    Reminds me when he swore up and down he wouldn’t bypass Congress and nullify the Dream Act by making illegals permanent.


    I see a patern.

    Just because Barry learned at an early age to look and act like “he knows what he’s doing” is no indication that it’s so…he’s a real life Chauncey Gardiner.

  • befuddled

    Barack Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure


    mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the biggest POS of all

    Makes a great political ad doesn’t it? Obama the Great Conman.

    “Let me be clear: it’s completely and totally irresponsible…unless you’re a Soros puppet who got conceived and raised to play a real-life recreation of Brewster’s Millions, where if you can spend it ALL with absolutely nothing to show for it, you WIN! Basically, folks, it’s only irresponsible to raise the debt ceiling if you’re NOT ME.”

    How dare you accuse Obama of being unpatriotic!

    He is the most patriotic president we’ve had in the United States in a LONG TIME!

    Come now, Comrade! Sing the Internationale with me! And remember our Comrades, those whom Obama is emulating with bearlike soviet fervor, Comrades Mao and Stalin!

    Unpatriotic. Pff.

    Number 11 was pretty funny! I laughed my ass off!

    Obama = Charlatan

  • Redwine

    Actually, Barry characteristically lied. Mark Levin just pointed out that Bush added $2T, not $4T, over the course of his presidency. ($2T is a lot, but that’s not the point.)

    If $2T makes Bush “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic”, I guess we can say that Comrade Barry’s $4T makes him “reckless” and “treasonous”.

  • succotash

    Liar and hypocrite go hand in hand with irresponsible and unpatriotic.

    I wonder if Karl Rove will get his pink panties in a bunch when he hears how “un-Presidential” Captain Earflaps sounded when he was running for President.

  • Espresso Logic – The 6th Sense

    I think 1/2 of that $4 trillion is buried in Moochelle’s giant buttocks.

    Was I being too harsh?

  • Mad Hatter

    I don’t care if it’s Romney or Perry that’s going to run against Obama, their campaign has to use this video and other videos or Obama against him.

    Obama jokes about that Shovel Ready Jobs weren’t so shovel ready.


    Obama on how he will be held accountable, and his Presidency will be a One Term Proposition. Second part of video is Obama saying, “I didn’t say Change was going to be overnight.”


    Obama on his plan to bankrupt the coal industry.


    Obama on his plan to cause high electricity prices to skyrocket.


    Obama on gas prices.


    We as citizens have email these links to people we know to remind them that Hope and Change is nothing more than Smoke and Mirrors.

    Espresso. Giant buttocks is harsh. Massive buttocks is more appropriate. Just a guess, but I’m saying her ass is an AXE HANDLE and a HALF wife.

  • Like he cares…

    ‘What if I were to inform you that in 2005, the media and federal government had the junior senator from Illinois dead to rights, namely Barack Hussein Obama, on insider trading and misuse of public information, and like all Obama crimes nothing was done about it.

    Yes, The Street, did an in depth piece on Obama’s shady investments in satellite and biological warfare in companies which were on the cusp of breaking out into the billion dollar profit structure in mergers with conglomerates and tapping into the government insider money train in Skyterra Communications (SKYT) and AVI Biopharma (AVII).

    Never heard of them have you? Well no one else did, unless you were in the US Senate looking into obscure companies to invest in for windfall profits………you know like buying Apple or Microsoft early like Forrest Gump.

    You really think that the Obama who looted over 13 trillion from the US Treasury for the 3rd world, the cartel in New York, the cartel in central Europe, did not get a cut out of that money game?

    Why the hell not just let your public black book investments stagnate in T bills, when you have the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Soros and Buffetts investing your money with their multi trillions in the new world order.

    Obama was guilty of insider trading in 2005. He should have been prosecuted and still should be prosecuted no matter the time which passes.’

    Man, I can’t believe nobody gets it.

    It’s unpatriotic to add $4 trillion dollars in debt in 7-1/2 years. A real patriot would do it in just 2-1/2 years.

    Barack Hussein Obama. Um-um-um. Now there’s a real patriot.

    Adding $4 Trillion to the Debt Is Irresponsible and Unpatriotic

    As with all Democrat grievances, it’s only a Bad Thing when it happens when the Republicans are in control.
