Under the Bush administration, why was raising the debt limit irresponsible and unpatriotic (Barack Obama’s words), yet under the Obama administration it should just be considered routine (again Obama’s own words)?

Routine? Therein lies the problem. Obama refers to tea party supporters as being radical and on the fringe. Since when is advocating fiscal responsibility and self-reliance considered radical and being on the fringe?
