If Obama’s President, ACORN will “shop”

Dick Morris says the corrupt, vote fraud hustling ACORN is an election liability for Sen. Obama.

I’m not sure about that.

ACORN may provide Obama with many more “votes” then he loses because at least some of the public’s caught on his many important “connections” to it, including shoveling lots of public money and campaign money ACORN’s way.

Here’s some of what Morris said today in The Hill followed by my comments - - -

… ACORN, the radical community group, is becoming an embarrassment for Obama. It is not as if its shenanigans are likely to tip the result, with the Democrats so far ahead, but as they are raided by the FBI in state after state (11 so far) they are becoming identified as the electoral equivalent of Greenpeace -- extremists who will stop at nothing to get their way.

What makes ACORN particularly embarrassing for Obama is that he used to be one of them.

He served as general counsel for ACORN in Illinois, channeled millions to the organization from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (whose funds he distributed), and has lately spent $800,000 of his campaign money to subsidize the group's activities.

For this emolument, ACORN has registered voters 15 times over, canvassed the graveyards for votes and prepared to commit electoral fraud on a massive scale.

With friends like this, Obama doesn't need enemies. As their radical activities make headlines every day, Obama's intimate involvement with these radicals becomes more and more of a political liability. …

Morris’ entire column’s here.


As I said, I’m not sure ACORN will hurt Obama as far as vote counting is concerned.

Let’s hope justice prevails on elections day and vote fraud doesn’t decide the election, despite all the efforts of ACORN and other Chicago-style political orgs. to steal it.

In any case if Sen. Obama wins The White House, will ACORN be seen as a political liability for President Obama?

The same MSM flacks who've covered up for Obama on Wright et all will surely be covering up or mellowing for ACORN.

So ACORN will be able to say to Obama: “Here’s our latest "shopping list." Reid and Pelosi will sign off on it; and we’ll do even more for you in the 2010 congressionals than in the presidential election.”

That thought should trouble every American concerned for this country’s future.
