Obama Has Lost All Credibility … ACORN Scandal, “It’s Not Something I’ve Followed Closely”


The ACORN scandal of  “pimps, child prostitutes and Acorn, oh my” has been plastered all over the Internet, cable news and now old media has finally been forced into reporting it. The scandal is so big and widespread that both the House and the Senate passed measures to defund ACORN.

However, some how the President of the United States Barack Obama went on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos and said that he was not following the scandal closely. You mean Obama missed ACORN video in Baltimore, video in Washington, DC, video in NY and the video in San Bernardino, CA? 

You Lie!

Does anyone really believe that Obama has not been following this scandal? Especially since his White House has looked to distance itself form ACORN? How dismissive could this President possibly be? So Barack Obama does not think its a big issue that tax payer money is going to a corrupt organization. If Acorn was Halliburton would he?

 The Audacity of Lack of Credibility

STEPHANOPOULOS:  How about the funding for ACORN?

OBAMA:  You know, if — frankly, it’s not really something I’ve followed closely.  I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.

STEPHANOPOULOS:  Both the Senate and the House have voted to cut it off.

OBAMA:  You know, what I know is, is that what I saw on that video was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated.

STEPHANOPOULOS:  So you’re not committing to — to cut off the federal funding?

OBAMA:  George, this is not the biggest issue facing the country.  It’s not something I’m paying a lot of attention to.

When asked whether Obama would commit to cut off ACORN federal funding, The One did not answer. Not commit to cutting off funding to Acorn!  How simple a question is that to answer? Also, Obama was not paying attention? What is he hanging out with ABC’s Charlie Gibson? If Barack Obama cannot be trusted on answering a simple question like being aware of the Acorn scandal, then why would anyone believe him on his spin of Obamacare. By the looks of the polls, the American people do not. The credibility with this President is gone, as Michelle Malkin states, Obama is ACORN. ACORN is Obama.

It strains credulity — no, it snaps credulity in half — to believe Obama “didn’t even know” that ACORN was “getting a whole lot of federal money” given his extensive legal services on behalf of the group and training for its voter education arm, Project Vote. (Go re-read my column from June 2008, “The ACORN Obama knows,” and all the links for a refresher course.)

Obama was unaware of Acorn receiving federal money? Please!

This interview was Obama’s Bill Clinton moment. Are you aware that Acorn is corrupt, receiving federal funds and are you following the story closely Mr. President? Well, George, it all depends on the is, is or is it what corruption is!

      See, the problem is this guy lives in a very different world then the rest of America. He views the country and Constitution he vowed to uphold in a different light and spectrum, mostly filled with contempt and anomosity.

      He has different definitions for terms such as what is a ‘tax.’ Normal thinking Americans know what is and what is not a tax. The Obama slug Stephanopolous spared with him on it. Obama does not view actual taxing of the middle class is an actual tax if it’s REDISTRIBUTING the wealth to the lower masses!

      This guy is scary dangerous!

      Gee, it would seem that Joe Wilson was right on and got chastised for it. Go figure. I can tell when Mr. Obama is lying becuase his lips are moving.

      #1– Good point. He promises not to raise taxes on families that make less than $250K / yr, but his 35% tax on the health care companies will be passed on to everyone, including those who make less than $250K / yr. It is the same lie the politicians (especially Republicans) use to sell us toll roads. (‘See the new highway we gave you, and without one cent of taxes!’) It is a way to take our money without calling it a ‘tax.’

      What a sad day it is when Obama states he has not followed the Acorn scandal closely. “what a surprise” I would think Child prostitution, fraud, corruption, etc. would be at the top of his list. However, I think Obama has now showed us all what is really important to him.

      1. Calling a cop Stupid before the facts
      2. worrying about Kanye West being a JA

      Obowma did not even follow Reverend Wright
      closely either!

    6. Carpe on September 21st, 2009 1:51 pm

      He never had any credibility to begin with.

      Obama doesn’t pay attention to the ACORN thing
      much… because he has time to be all over this
      hot topic that your average American CARES SOOOO
      MUCH about.

      “Nearly 100 members of the U.S. House are working in lockstep with the Obama administration to try to eliminate protections for traditional marriage in the United States with the “Respect for Marriage Act” that has just been introduced in Congress.

      H.R. 3567 was introduced just days ago by U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-New York, and more than 90 co-sponsors.

      “This legislation would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a 1996 law which discriminates against lawfully married same-sex couples,” Nadler said in a statement on his website.The proposal has been assigned to committee.

      “The 13-year-old DOMA singles out legally married same-sex couples for discriminatory treatment under federal law, selectively denying them critical federal responsibilities and rights, including programs like social security that are intended to ensure the stability and security of American families,” his statement continued.”

      Obama Has Lost All Credibility. He speaks in double talk and lies at will.

    9. katablog.com on September 21st, 2009 5:44 pm

      As rightknight said: of course he didn’t pay attention to the ACORN scandal anymore than he paid attention to the hatred spewed from Reverend Wright’s pulpit for 20 years. You believed the later on election day so why won’t you also suck down the former?

      BO also wasn’t close with William Ayers but just happened to accidentally appoint another Ayers radical, Van Jones, as a Czar. Oh and Obama doesn’t have Czars – well except when he himself calls them czars. He also had no clue that Tony Rezko’s wife purchased the land locked piece of property next to his the same day he bought his Chicago Mansion for a reduced price. Hope and Change.

      We are now seeing what Barry Soetoro is all about.
      He is a muslim illeagle immigrant from Indonesia and never met the requirements to be President of the United States. The Democratic Party new this from the beginning. Nancy Pelosi and the Secretary of the Democratic National Commitee did not send the normal certification to all the State Secretaries.
      The muslims believe it is ok to lie in order to fool the people so they can get what they want. Lying is second nature to Barry.
      We the people need to throw this faker out of office and charge him and the Democratic party with treason against the country.

      when, after his second speech, did he have credibility?

    12. yoyo muffintop on September 21st, 2009 9:37 pm

      Read #10 folks……no wonder why people believe this hatred for President Obama is driven by racist rightwing extremists.
      It’s not that hard to figure out – just read #10. Lol.
      SM: Hey YOYO ignorant fool. Even your socialist President said that racism is not the issue. But it certainly is for you narrow minded race baiting fools.

      The party that cried racism at every opportunity when none existed will come back and bite you. People are tired of it. It is WHITE America that voted Obama into office. Those same people; however, do not agree with his socialist healthcare … yet they are called racist for daring to disagree with the Obamamessiah.

      Fat chance that Obama will ever be re-elected, The One will be One and Done. The rate he is going, he might just find opposition from his own party in the democratic primary.

      the word racism is nothing more than a tool for the left wing radical racists to use. hey, it’s our word now so get used to it being used on you left wing haters. you have drawn first blood with the bomb threats so we now know what you are capable of.
      here’s one for the DEMOCRATS. the largest gathering of the Klan was the 1924 Democratic Convention. notice i said DEMOCRATIC . so it looks like a lot democratic politicians have klan backgrounds.

      yoyo should marry a racist then she would have one of her very own to hold and to cherish.

      “Does anyone wonder why the average voter and Joe Six pack cannot relate to this President. People do not trust Obama because he is the first black President. They do not trust him because he is John Kerry.”

      So it’s racism, got it.

      Are you saying post #10 is not indicative of right-wing extremism and racial prejudice?

    17. Scott on September 22nd, 2009 11:44 am


      Get a new card to play you illegal liberal blood sucker of hard working tax paying Americans!

      You keep looking as foolish as Jimmy Carter and every other RACIST punk lunatic out there! Remember this idiot, WHITE AMERICA is the SOLE reason Obama was elected. The SOLE reason. But yet WHITE AMERICA is racist.

      Race baiters are racists! You’re a race baiter plain and simple and your idiotic thoughts are taken with a grain of salt!

      Now go dig a ditch somewhere and bury yourself in it! Real Stimulus!

    18. super dave on September 22nd, 2009 1:10 pm

      it’s not racism. obama is (not) the first black president. he is the sixth mixed race president.
      all the supposed racism is coming from the left wingers.
      i don’t hate black people, they hate me and most white people and always have. so there’s your racism . got it ?

      #16 yoyo

      #10′s comments may have been right-wing(nothing wrong in that) but to say it was extremist or racial in nature is quite a stretch.

      of course, I can see how you can selectively filter words to suit your agenda, though, as you have been programmed well to do just that to justify the inane and inexplicable(as well as incomprehensible) policies of President Obama.

      Once the Republicans get a thorough and easy to understand platform going to present to the American voting public, it will be a time of REAL and PROGRESSIVE(that is the word) change in the country, not the pablum that has been force fed to us nor the illusatory audacity of hopium that have been blown in our faces, clouding any rational thought or questions we may have of his ill-conceived policies.

      As far as ACORN is concerned, if he is not lying then he is woefully ignorant of the situation, and that may be worse in the long run to be that naive about something as corrupt as a big organization as that. It questions what else is he naive about, particularly in terms of foreign relations vis-a-vis Russia, Iran and China, let alone terrorism.

    20. super dave on September 22nd, 2009 4:20 pm

      he doesn’t keep up with the scandal because he is part of it. he’s scared he will be implicated before it is over.

    21. Auntiem on September 22nd, 2009 5:04 pm

      Yo-Yo, EVEN Obama said on the Letterman show that he indeed was Black, BEFORE he was elected….the majority of White America voted for him, a Black (really racially mixed) man. He isn’t pulling the Race Card, it’s too obviously NOT true!!!!

    22. super dave on September 23rd, 2009 7:36 am

      i see nothing racist at all about #10. obama has never proven his citizenship and also spent a million dollars to hide his identity.
      this is criminally suspicious and should have been investigated immediately. until this happens, he is juat as illegal as the mexican that swam the rio grande this morning.
      he and his wife are confessed racists and have written books to prove it. yoyo should read them and learn.

    23. Steve Holloway on September 23rd, 2009 9:33 am

      yo yo

      please open your mind up to what you are supporting. I’m sorry you can’t get pass skin color. Its about O’s policies and him trying to force it on WE the PEOPLE.

    24. Dolf on September 29th, 2009 9:32 am

      lol at this post

      Obama didn’t have any cred with you anyway
