……..Just To Get Elected

Obama, when debt was nine trillion,
Recoiling, declared it reptilian.
It was only talk;
There’s no walking the walk –
The debt is now double, gazillion.

On July 3, 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama said this:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

The U.S. national debt has now doubled in his 6 years and is $18 trillion.
