Context: In 2006, candidate Obama called President Bush “unpatriotic” for adding $4 trillion to the debt…

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.

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.

Fast forward 7 years: The United States is nearly $17 trillion in debt…

Two months into President Obama’s second term, new numbers show the national debt increased by more than $6 trillion since he took office.

Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion. (To be exact: $16,687,289,180,215.37)

Gotcha, right?

Not so fast…
