Obama Calls Bush Unpatriotic for $4T Spending -- Then Does the Same in 33% of the Time

How meaningfully delicious are campaign hope and change?  Take a look:

Oh, and guess when our very own President Obama called lonesome, "#43," unpatriotic for spending too much?  July 3, 2008.  Hmm.  That's surely not "Washington politics" at play, is it?  By golly, gee whiz.

Let me see if I'm understanding President Obama correctly:  Spending $4 trillion over 8 years is unpatriotic. Okay, so, spending $4 trillion in two and half years, after previously criticizing the former $4 trillion spending as unpatriotic? . . .  I guess spending the same amount in less than 33% of the time is, at least, "change."

On the other hand, I believe most would agree: "That's not the kind of change we need." (Although the country could use some more change -- $$ -- and a lot less spending.)

One last, parting question, posed by Ed Morrissey of  “If Obama can use the increase in the national debt to question Bush’s patriotism, doesn’t it follow that increasing deficit spending by 152 percent per month makes Obama 152 percent more 'unpatriotic' than Bush?”

Well, gentle CA readers, I'll let you decide.
