Some believe this ad unfairly suggests that President Obama is responsible for adding all $16 trillion to the national debt. That is not the message. We need a new direction because Obama’s dismal fiscal record has resulted in a national debt that now stands at $16 trillion and is growing at a faster rate than ever. Obama is on pace to add $6.2 trillion to the debt during his 4-year term. By comparison, GWB added $4.9 trillion during his 8-year tenure. Can we really afford 4 more years?
