Obama 2008 on Bush: Irresponsible and unpatriotic

While running for office, candidate Obama declared that Bush 43 was irresponsible and unpatriotic because during his tenure in office the national debt went from $5 trillion to $10 trillion (over eight years).  Somehow he has failed to mention that in the last 3.5 years (less than half the time it took Bush 43) under his watch, the debt has soared by $6 trillion.  Who is irresponsible and unpatriotic?
