How does ObamACORN throw ACORN under the bus?
He lies on the road (and on TV).
ABC News: Obama on ACORN: ‘Not Something I’ve Followed Closely’ Won’t Commit to Cut Federal Funds
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.
Obama evades questions better than Mohammad Ali did hits. Dance like an eel, blame like a liar.
Michelle Malkin: Obama plays dumb on ACORN
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.)
He is not dumb, he just plays one on TV.
