It’s interesting to take a look at how Barack Hussein Obama II, House Minority Leader John Boehner, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani all used the same word in different ways.
Here is a reminder of what Obama thinks qualifies as “irresponsible”:
“I felt that it would be irresponsible for me, with the first $350 billion already spent, to enter into the administration without any potential ammunition should there be some sort of emergency or weakening of the financial system.”
– Barack Hussein Obama II

U.S. Seeks Rest of Bailout Cash
Got that? Even though he said, “it would be irresponsible for me…” it was one of the few times that he wasn’t actually talking about himself. Obama doesn’t criticize himself.
When he said, “it would be irresponsible for me … to enter into the administration without any potential ammunition” he was really saying “it would be irresponsible for President Bush to leave the administration without giving me the other $350 Billion!”
So Obama got to have his cake and eat it, too. Obama got the $350 Billion from Bush, and Obama got to blame Bush for the increase to our debt under Bush’s tenure!
(By the way, House Minority Leader John Boehner said the exact opposite of what Obama said. Boehner said that he did not think the remaining TARP funds (approximately $350 billion) should be released. “Until there is a demonstrated need and a plan to address those needs,” he said, “it would be irresponsible to release those funds.“)
Bush should not have released the other $350 Billion. He should have let Obama ask for it. But President Bush was gullible, and he trusted people he shouldn’t have trusted. Two of the people topping that list of people who Bush should not have trusted: Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson, and Barack Hussein Obama II.
Now, what has Obama done recently that is not just “irresponsible”, but highly “dangerous”?
What is the Obama decision that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says is ‘Dangerous and Irresponsible’ and ‘absolutely unnecessary’?
