On Obama Referring to George Bush's Deficits as "Unpatriotic"
Yeah, I kinda agree. But what Mr. Obama refuses to mention here is that a) Bush had a Democratic Congress for those final two years (the Congress holding the purse-strings), b) the Wall Street bailout, which was one of the most pricey aspects of those deficits, was something that he as a Senator championed, and c) a fair number of his deficits were actually much larger than Bush's. I mean, I know that these politicians aren't very adept at context and all but this sucker has, "pot, kettle, black", written all over it.
