Newly surfaced audio of Obama in 2006: raising the debt limit “a sad state of affairs”


Never mind the fact that yesterday he demanded a no-strings-attached, non-negotiable debt limit hike.  In 2006, Senator Obama was very concerned about the “sad state of affairs” that was America’s debt. 

Here’s the newly surfaced audio:

Obama then decried the $8 trillion national debt.  During his first term alone, the United States’ debt has risen to more than twice that number: $16.4 trillion, but for some reason the nation’s debt doesn’t matter very much any more.  Those darn Republicans are “holding a gun to the nation’s head” and we must accrue more debt immediately!
