    Considering His standard - is Obama unpatriotic?

    Candidate Obama: "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." (July 3, 2008)

    Obama and Bush both failed the nation by their refusal to deal with rapidly increasing debt.

    The term unpatriotic has no meaning in this context. It is simply a smear used to attack political opponents. The important point is that practical results of the Bush policies that Obama criticized and Obama's own policies have been negative.

    hypocrite is a more fitting term. he's been doing exactly what he criticized Bush for.

    Without dancing, yes. If Obama says adding 4 trillion in 8 years is unpatriotic and he has presided over adding 5.5 trillion in 2.5 years, then he kinda has to be responsible for his own words.

    By his own standards, yes. By mine, no.

    Sure does make him look stupid though...then again, he's never had difficulty making himself look stupid. This doesn't exactly push him over the tipping point.

    Re: Considering His standard - is Obama unpatriotic?

    I hate the terms "unpatriotic" and "anti-american" being used to describe programs or policies that a politician (or forum poster) disagrees with. His use of the term was stupid, but if he believes what he said then he's unpatriotic, too. Not that I think his actions (or Bush's) really constitute claims of lacking patriotism.

    Interesting that the 'no' voters do not give reason...

    Obama is not unpatriotic. He's UN-American being raised by Communists from mother and father, stepfather, grand parents and surrounding himself with them in college and spending 20 years under Rev. Wrights Black Liberation Theology church which is based in Marxism he knows nothing else.
