Has our debt to China become “unpatriotic” yet?

The top story on The Drudge Report today leads to this Bloomberg post revealing that the US accrued 12.2 billion dollars of debt to China in the month of November, bringing our total debt to the Chinese to a record-high 1.3 trillion US dollars.

This morning, Senator Ted Cruz’s office posted the video reminder below, titled “Throwback Thursday on the National Debt”.  I believe that the audio from this clip has appeared on one or two of Marty’s famous montages, but it’s always worth comparing Candidate Obama to our current King Barry.  Have we crossed that “unpatriotic” line that Candidate Obama talked about in 2008?  This is just between us, but hey…..if it was unpatriotic for George W. Bush, then why is this okay for Barry?  Just askin’.
