Since the "lies" of various people seem to have the left up in arms, we have this nice piece: Obama Caught in a Major ACORN Lie by Jim Hoft The brazen dishonesty of this president is a bit concerning to say the least. A newly discovered video shows Obama lying to the American people about his relationship with ACORN: <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/-jPJwu3wUcU&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/-jPJwu3wUcU&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) from the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform released this video at CPAC of Barack Obama discussing his close partnership with ACORN. Obama talked about his long relationship with ACORN privately in this video before the 2008 election: âWhen I ran project vote, the voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it. Once I was elected there wasnât a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasnât right there with you. Since I have been in the United States Senate Iâve been always a partner with ACORN as well. Iâve been fighting with ACORN, along side ACORN, on issues you care about my entire career.â But, when Barack Obama was confronted about his relationship with ACORN publicly before the election he had an entirely different story. This is what he said in October 2008: Reporter: Senator McCain today said there was voter fraud going on in the battleground states. ACORN has been tampering with Americaâs most precious right. There has to be a full investigation and he also said you need to disclose your full relationship with ACORN. Iâm wondering if you have any reaction to Senator McCainâs charge? Barack Obama: Well, first of all my relationship with ACORN is pretty straightforward. Itâs probably 13 years ago when I was still practicing law, I represented ACORN and my partner in that investigation was the US Justice department in having Illinois implement what was called the motor voter law, to make sure people could go to DMVâs and driver license facilities to get registered. It wasnât being implemented. That was my relationship and is my relationship to ACORN. There is an ACORN organization in Chicago. Theyâve been active. As an elected offiical, Iâve had interactions with them. But, theyâre not advising my campaign. Weâve got the best voter registration in politics right now and we donât need ACORNâs help. For the recordâ¦ ACORN is the largest radical leftist group in America today. This radical group worked closely with the Obama camp during the election but, the community organizing group was not open about the relationship. The photo below was scrubbed from the ACORN website before the election: One of Barack Obamaâs first big âcommunity organizerâ jobs involved ACORN in 1992. He worked along side ACORN before he became an elected official. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN in 2008 for voter registration efforts. And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama in 2008. In 2009 Obama promoted a top ACORN operative, Patrick Gaspard, whoâs oranization was fined $775,000 for election violations, to a top post in the White House. Gespard is helping shape domestic policy today. Obamaâs ACORN group was banned from receiving federal funds in September after the group was busted on tape promoting the child sex slave trade.
