Obama Campaign Caught in ACORN Lies

Having the media behind it has encouraged the Obama campaign to take the Audacity of Hype to appalling extremes of arrogance. Obama's Fight the Smears site even denies that BHO worked for the Radical Left vote fraud outfit ACORN, even though it is public knowledge that he was a top trainer for ACORN brownshirts (or rather, redshirts), and represented them as a lawyer as part of their campaign to force banks to make mortgage loans based on race instead of ability to repay — a contributing factor to the subprime meltdown that led directly to the current economic crisis.

But look what the Obamunists failed to stuff down the memory hole:


The picture above comes via the Cleveland Leader, which reports:

Attempts to hide evidence of Obama's involvement with ACORN have included wiping the web clean of potentially damaging articles that had appeared, and were previously publicly accessible. Unfortunately, those behind the attempted cover-up failed to realize that in today's day and age, nothing disappears forever. There also exists another layer of the web, the hidden web, which is full of information included in proprietary scholarly databases where these very same "missing" articles can be easily uncovered.

Digging into the hidden web, the Leader retrieved an article published in the journal Social Policy by ACORN honcho Toni Foulkes, from which it quotes:

Obama took the case, known as ACORN vs. Edgar (the name of the Republican governor at the time) and we won. Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992 that made it possible for Carol Moseley Braun to win the Senate that year. Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5,000 of them).
Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for State Senate and then his failed bid for U.S. Congress in 1996. By the time he ran for U.S. Senate, we were old friends.

Social Policy recently scrubbed this article from its website. You have to wonder what else will be scrubbed from the historical record if the Hard Left's messiah and his glassy-eyed acolytes manage to take control of not just the mainstream press, but the government.

Would you buy used snake oil from this community organizer?

I don't understand why the Obamessiah continues to lie about all of this stuff as nothing he says seems to change anyone's opinion.

The media and his other followers would still love him if his head spun around and he started vomiting pea-soup.

So why does he lie?

Too bad the ACORN's are like the red shirts in Star Trek.

Of course, once again, none of this will matter as sheep like voters will just think of the bad economy and vote for the MESSiah anyway. Unaware he is leading them to slaughter. Sort of like that music video "Float On" (Obama is the "fake Jamaican")

Float On Lyrics
Artist(Band):Modest Mouse

I backed my car into a cop car, the other day
Well he just drove off, sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off, it was all ok

And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on any way, well

A fake Jamaican took every last dime with a scam
It was worth it just to learn some sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on exactly the same day
Well we'll float on good news is on the way

And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, alright
Already we'll all float on
No, don't you worry, we'll all float on
Alright, I'm ready, we'll all float on
Alright, don't worry, we'll all float on

Alright alright we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
We'll all float on...alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on, ok
Don't worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy, we'll all float on

Alright already we'll all float on
Don't you worry we'll all float on
All float on...

The left, with accomplices in MSM, has been voluntarily doing what George Orwell's Big Brother did in 1984...change how you report history to ignore/remove the bits that don't suit your agenda. Even when confronted with well documented statements such as an audio/video clip deny, deny, deny....and accuse the person that mentions the clip of being a fascist or racist or what ever other ist you think fits the bill

Acorn is by any account, a racist, facist group.
Looking forward to the upraised fists by BO and his rotund wife at the swearing-in ceremonies.
At the very least I expect to see another smirking, hard-frown, muscular "fist-bumb," i.e., the slightly softer, "black power" gesture.

I never thought I'd be parroting the older generation in saying the country's going downhill.

We don't have a Ronald Reagan or a George Washington to lead us out of this 70 year socialist morass we're in.
The trouble is, I fear, when someone charismatic comes along to move America away from the direction this Marxist/Leninist Obama is taking us in, that he/she will need to be dictatorial to put us on the right path.
History can offer a few names to remind us what can come of that.

Here's the evidence that Obama enabled the forcing banks to hand out thousands of shaky loans to the welfare-dependent unemployed.
