Obama And ACORN

Via Michelle Malkin

If you don’t know what ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is all about, you better bone up. This left-wing group takes in 40 percent of its revenues from American taxpayers — you and me — and has leveraged nearly four decades of government subsidies to fund affiliates that promote the welfare state and undermine capitalism and self-reliance, some of which have been implicated in perpetuating illegal immigration and encouraging voter fraud. A new whistleblower report from the Consumer Rights League documents how Chicago-based ACORN has commingled public tax dollars with political projects.

Who in Washington will fight to ensure that your money isn’t being spent on these radical activities?

Don’t bother asking Barack Obama. He cut his ideological teeth working with ACORN as a “community organizer” and legal representative. Naturally, ACORN’s political action committee has warmly endorsed his presidential candidacy. According to ACORN, Obama trained its Chicago members in leadership seminars; in turn, ACORN volunteers worked on his campaigns. Obama also sat on the boards of the Woods Fund and Joyce Foundation, both of which poured money into ACORN’s coffers. ACORN head Maude Hurd gushes that Obama is the candidate who “best understands and can affect change on the issues ACORN cares about” — like ensuring their massive pipeline to your hard-earned money.

Let’s take a closer look at the ACORN Obama knows.

And here’s more on the history of ACORN.

  1. The leftists get their money from taxpayer’s pockets? You mean instead of using money for the good of the people the government uses money for their next campaign? That sounds kind of like a banana republic.

  2. America may be ready for a black president, but does that mean we are obligated to elect someone president, just because they are black? Obama has extremely minimal experience and minimal credentials, not to mention his 20 years joined at the hip with anti-American racists. Also, about 15% of our population is black, so in a democracy, why are the other 85% of us made to feel obligated to elect a black man? I think the problems confronting America today are too dire and too complex to elect someone who is less qualified, just because it is politically correct.

  3. I agree. I could support a black person for the White House, but not one who is naive.

    I think that your statements are very extreme.
    This is not about a black being president or the origin of the man’s name; this is about who is fit and appropriate to lead America as the Commander In Chief for the next four years at least.

    Your statements are unfounded and unfair.
    You are not obligate to elect anyone, you are obligated to vote; and hopefully vote with a conscience about what matters most to the American people, having moral ethics at the top of th elist.

    God bless you all.

  5. Hello Phyllis,

    I believe that talk is cheap, and that you can tell a lot about a candidate by who he associates with. I think the same could be said of anyone. And in all honesty, I would have preferred Alan Keyes to Obama or McCain. So it’s not about the color of his skin. I object his association with domestic terrorists, terror sympathizers, and those who hate America.

    Feel free to stick around and join in the discussion. And G-d bless you too!

  6. Obama is not naive as some would think, but rather, calculating and dangerous!!!

  7. Obama is very dangerous-America better wake-up and smell the coffee,just look at the type of people he ran around with before he became a congressman,and after !. You don’t want to run around with people, with that type of agenda,if your not just like them and agree with their ideas. He always seems to be skirting the issues when ask about his associations with those LOW LIFES. If he’d just come out with the truth and get it over!!!! Personally I just don’t trust him……..

  8. This is kinda funny, you folks ranting and raving about ACORN and all, considering that ACORN was founded and funded by Jewish guys.

    Or maybe you were thinking the massas at the top didn’t know what the slaves at the bottom were doing. Is that what you were thinking?

    Maybe you’re also thinking Rahm Emmanuel is actually taking orders from the black fella, instead of giving them.

    Maybe you think the moon is made of cheese also.

  9. Bob, George Wiley is black, and Wade Rathke is not Jewish. So what’s your point.
