The numbers don’t lie — Obama is the debt champion!

George W. Bush, with the dot-come bubble, 9/11 and its aftermath, two wars, a new prescription drug entitlement to Medicare, along with everything else which goes with a two-term presidency, amassed a national debt of $4.9 trillion under his two terms.

Barack Obama broke that record in just over 3 years, amassing a total of around $4.94 trillion as of this month.  In 2008, Obama said this about Bush’s debt while was campaigning for President:

Umm… so, can we call Obama “unpatriotic” now?  Why do I have a feeling that wouldn’t fly this time around.
