Personally, I've been LMAO as the ACORN bit has unfolded. The whole thing is absolutely brilliant. The best way to expose these people is to show them for what they are. But even better than that is the way they suckered ACORN and the left in hook, line and sinker.

I especially liked the hooker disguise. It added a certain Kennedy/Clinton flair. Don't you think? People who will do anything for money just understand each other better.

ACORN

Just saw this on the news -- the media's going on about Obama supporting an investigation into ACORN. I couldn't believe he was willing to throw ACORN under the bus, given all they've done for him. So I thought I'd read what he had to say.

According to the article, he said "there should be an investigation into the hidden-camera video involving employees at the activist group ACORN and a couple posing as a prostitute and her pimp."

Quoting Obama, he said what he saw on the video was "was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated."

So I'm reading this and wondering, exactly what does he wants investigated? I'm having a hard time figuring out whether he thinks ACORN's behavior was disturbing, or whether he wants the filmmakers investigated.

What makes me think it's the latter was this quote by Obama: "Frankly, it's not really something I've followed closely," Obama said. "I didn't even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money."

Are you kidding me?? Two whoppers in one quote, and the media just takes it at face value.

You can bet that before all is said and done, the filmmakers are going to be put through the grinder. At this moment, I guarantee their backgrounds and connections are being picked over with a fine-toothed comb for anything that can be used for character assassination.

I think you can bet the mortgage on that folks. Typical of the left is anyone (including the devil himself) who furthers their cause is made a hero, or at worst a martyr. Anyone disagreeing has their past hauled out and displayed for all to see.
I really must applaud the courage of those folks who took on an obviously corrupt and criminal organization to expose them for what they are. They will be put through the mill as are all who dare to tell the truth in what will be an obvious and desperate attempt to turn the spotlight away from their own despicable and illegal acts. It will be interesting to see if Dems continue to disassociate themselves from this and what light it may throw on the past election results .

He didnt know they were getting much money? He lies or is an idiot , how could the president who has put forth this stimulus package not know that millions of dollars of tax payer money was going into ACORN. Typical answer from Obama he never knows , Bill Ayers ,he didnt know, Rev. Wright , he didnt know .

Could be all of the above. In the world these people in habit, there are no absolute truths. "Truth" is defined as what people believe. Therefore, it doesn't matter of Obama plays stupid, because if the media says "Ok -- there it is. He explained it" he gets away with it.

Rush Limbaugh referred to them as the "Drive By" media for years. I think lately Michelle Malkin has it right by referring to them as the "Ostrich media." It's amazing how they bury their heads in the sand and pretend not to see things that are blatantly obvious to the rest of us.

When your the one dolling out information you can doll out what you want and hold back as you see fit. Most people sadly don't question what they read with their breakfast or watch in the evening.
