Obozo, the Back-and-Forthright Creature

2006 Obozo:

It’s a sad state of affairs, we just voted to increase the debt limit. The U.S. total debt at this point exceeds eight trillion dollars. That’s eight trillion with a “t”. So we’ve got to get our fiscal house in order here in Washington. I’m not sure it’s going to happen under the current leadership in Congress. But we’re going to see what kind of difference we can make. To make sure that veterans programs, student loan programs, low income housing assistance programs, homeland security dollars, are receiving the highest priority , not just tax cuts for the wealthiest .1% of the population.

He had just voted AGAINST a debt-limit increase.

Of course, the damnfool Pubbies (the Stupid Party) had just voted FOR it, inspiring Santelli and the TEA Party. Obviously, the TEA Party's work is not done.

How many times did the GOP approve the debt limit in the previous decade?
