Obama in his own words: National debt 'unpatriotic'


Oh, those pesky old videos. They have a way of coming out of the closet and biting politicians on the backside.

The Republican National Committee is currently twisting the knife, releasing a web video showing Sen. Barack Obama calling $4 trillion in new debt “unpatriotic” in 2008.

Sayeth Obama then: “Driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars to $9 trillion is irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

The RNC video then asks, “If $4 trillion was unpatriotic, what do you call adding $5 trillion in just one term?”

Treason, I guess. But aside from the hardball politics at play, the morale to this story is that we have a president in the White House with little consistency. He can't even keep his story straight the length of an average car loan -- and now we have the video to prove it.
