What’s that you say Mr. Obama? “Irresponsible, Unpatriotic?”

This was Barack Obama’s rhetoric on debt as he campaigned for president in 2008. Now, he is expected to announce his intention to raise the debt ceiling by another $1.2 trillion on Friday. The boost would bring the ceiling up to nearly $16.4 trillion — far exceeding crisis proportion. America is fast becoming Greece.

Obama, who has already indebted Americans more than all previous presidents combined —  makes the call for increasing the outrageous spending limit between his time on and off the golf course while enjoying his lavish, lengthy annual holiday vacation in Hawaii — unconcerned about further indebting every man, woman and child in America by tens of thousands of dollars.

Spending cuts, even as Americans are hurting, are a foreign notion to Obama, whose wife Michelle, appeared to be tone-deaf as she sported a $2,000 sundress earlier in the week.

The rest of us need a staggering reality check — provided here on the continually ticking national debt clock. The total debt per citizen at this moment stands at $180,342.

This past August, in Ding Dong! A reality check, Seeing Red AZ used this ad as chilling reminder of what the national debt actually means:

    Without any reservation, whatsoever, I believe Barack Obama is intent on bringing our nation to its knees. It is imperative that regardless of whom we are currently backing in the 2012 presidential election, we all rally behind the Republican candidate who wins the nomination.

    For the sake of our future and that of our children, we can’t let any differences divide us. This is without a doubt the most critical election of our lives, and in the history of the United States. Even if Lincoln hadn’t carried the US through the Civil War, there still would have been a nation, albeit differently configured, This time we are looking our complete demise straight in the eye.

      You are completely correct. Rush has said this from the beginning – remember Rush was the only outspoken persons who stated “I hope he fails”. Sadly, he has not with the aid of many Republicans (especially those in leadership positions). Obama’s plan from inception is to destroy this Country – he has stated as much many times over.

      • Dennis O'Brien says:

        I do remember Rush’s comment, and also how he was pounded for saying it! And you’re correct in your assertion that far too many Republicans have helped this con man maneuver over us like a steam roller, crushing patriotism and self reliance under the treads of his extremely costly nannyism.

        The post says we’re becoming Greece. The Greek and Roman societies failed because of this same laziness and reliance on government, which is always too happy to have sheepl-like dependents who will not rise up against its policies.

        …and our elected representatives continue to sit on their hands…as our LIBERTY continues to erode away. They are so blind to think that their inaction will not effect their children…

        …or they simply don’t give a damn…

    Committeeman,
    You got that right! Obama is a Marxist.

  3. TeaPartyPatriot says:

    The U.S. government has now accumulated a total debt of more than 15 trillion dollars. When Barack Obama first took office the national debt was just 10.6 trillion dollars.

    The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

    During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.

    Cut, Cap and Balance remains as the only REAL solution to America’s BIG GOVERNMENT spending and debt problem, which is why it was passed by the HOUSE with bi-partisan support.

    Cut, Cap and Balance is to a lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist’s cherished BIG GOVERNMENT as a wooden stake is to a vampire.

    The irresponsible defeat of Cut, Cap and Balance by the Senate d-cRAT socialists shows, once again, that these lunatic-left extremists want only to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND and TAX, TAX, TAX America into another high-tax, low-growth, no jobs, failed socialist entitlement state like Greece.

  4. Justin says:

    A good starting point to consider for dealing with this massive debt and to reign in spending would be incorporating a dollar-for-two dollar deal, where any rise in the debt ceiling would have to match doubled corresponding spending cuts. That would cut Obama’s spree off at the knees.

  5. Steven Robinson says:

    It would be a HUGE mistake to believe that Obama is the only Marxist elected to a national office . Some other obvious suspects are Dennis Kucinich, Jan Schakowsky, Maxine Waters, Barney Frank and MANY more. So, getting this Alinsky disciple out of the White House is only the first step. There is much more to do.

    DId you know the only real difference between a “Socialist” and a “Marxist” is that the former will turn his back while the latter blows your brains out.

    The “Patriot” must prepare him/herself for the battle FIRST by educating himself. They then can choose which battlefront in which they will engage the enemies of our Republic. The first battlefront is Elections and electoral integrity.
