As President Obama prepares to raise the debt ceiling -- after the Senate waived its opposition last week -- $5 trillion hikes evidently are no longer "unpatriotic" as Obama said they were in 2008 while describing former President George W. Bush's $4 trillion increase over eight years.
Such increases used to be anathema to Obama, who voted in March 2006 along with all his Senate Democratic colleagues against Bush's hike of the debt ceiling to $8.9 trillion.

At the time, Obama called raising the debt limit "a sign of leadership failure." Out on the campaign trail in July 2008, he suggested the move was downright un-American.

    The slimeball will say anything to get elected. Remember when he said as a senator he wouldn't come for the guns if he got elected president? What's he doing now? No your taxes won't go up, then they go up. Yeah I'll close gitmo, and it's STILL open. We do not torture people, and now there's more torture going on than ever before. It amazes me that Obama flat out lies to the public and the sleeping members of the public eat up his lies like its the best chocolate bar you could ever get at the corner store. Obama is the liar in chief, period!

    He preaches to the choir, whatever they want to hear. I honestly don't think too many people actually, honestly know what the man really thinks about anything. He'll say whatever it takes to get those particular listeners' votes, whether he believes what he's saying or not. Hypocrite is the very mildest of adjectives for this man and his belief system.

    The dictionary should list "hypocrite" in the description next to politician. Politicians don't care about the country or it's people. They care about winning. They will say and do anything to win the contest.

    dems can't be hypocrites, just like blacks can't be racists. don't you know that when a repub changes their mind it's called flip-flopping, but when a dem changes their mind it's called an evolution of thought?

    Sorry Mr.Steve, I was referring to the observations of Lord Churchill.

    Trite phrases and childish images are well and good for receiving applause from a partisan crowd, but they are utterly meaningless. As meaningless as Lord Churchill's notions about what life means to ordinary people.

    Just as it’s always been throughout his tenure.

    On nearly everything he campaigned on and nearly everything he’s said.

    Ummm... you do realize that the majority of spending under Obama's administration is payments on commitments made during the Bush admin.

    I'm no fan of Obama, nor do I think he is doing anything to repair America. But as far as destroying it, THAT YOU CAN THANK YOUR REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR.
