According to Obama in 2006:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure,” [Obama] said on March 16, 2006. “Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership . Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”
So, was it only irresponsible because it was Bush's term? Why was it necessary to get serious about fiscal discipline THEN, but not now?
BTW, I totally agree with his statement in 2006. He sure has changed his tune, bless his heart.
