From a tiny ACORN, a mighty scandal continues to grow

Our eloquent Dear Leader suffered a teleprompter glitch Sunday during his "grand slam media blitz" as the Noo Yawk Times terms his rounds of all the so-called mainstream media talk shows.

Little Georgie went off topic and asked the Prez about the ACORN scandal, about which our Dear Leader knows "nothing, I know nothing..." After all, it's been years and years since he was ACORN's lawyer.

Obama sat down with George Stephanopolous on ABC's This Week and had the following response to the ongoing ACORN scandal:

STEPHANOPOULOS: But have your — have some of your allies made it easier for — handed your opponents some ammunition, like ACORN, for example…

OBAMA: Well, look, the — you know, I think that — are there folks in the Democratic camp or on the left who haven’t — haven’t always operated in ways that I’d appreciate? Absolutely.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Congress said they should cut off all funding for ACORN.

OBAMA: Is — is — is…

STEPHANOPOULOS: … all funding for ACORN. Are you for that?

OBAMA: Is that true on the other side, as well? Of course that’s true.

STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?

OBAMA: You know, it’s — 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.

Boy, there's some Clintonian eloquence if I ever heard any, and I quote "Is — is — is…" I suppose that translates the ACORN scandal depends on what the meaning of "is" is. Got it?

And if you're yearning for some background about ACORN, don't miss Doug Giles giving the straight poop on how his daughter Hannah and another citizen journalist exposed ACORN for the shysters they are. Giles explodes all the conspiracy theories with the simple truth of whodunit.

And today, Ken Blackwell explains how ACORN is caught between a rock and a hard place as they threaten to sue Fox News for reporting on the scandal that was ignored by the MSM.

In the wake of Fox News reporting on the unfolding ACORN scandal, ACORN is now threatening to sue the network. Now that Fox is actually breaking news on this story by showing new videos, ACORN might just do it. Fox News should pray that ACORN does sue, because it would blow the doors off this story, possibly destroying ACORN and erupting into a political scandal in Washington.

As bizarre as it seems, ACORN is threatening to sue Fox for reporting on these incriminating videotapes. Glenn Beck broke news with a new tape on Monday, and Sean Hannity might be doing the same shortly. Evidently, ACORN is accusing Fox of coordinating with the filmmakers, arguing that somehow these reports make Fox legally liable.

ACORN’s unavoidable problem, however, is that suing Fox News would give Fox — or any other media organization — the ultimate Christmas present: a legally enforceable way to compel ACORN to give up all its secrets.

Andrew Breitbart discloses his role in the ACORN scandal and promises more to come.

Everything you needed to know about the unorthodox roll out of the now-notorious ACORN sting videos was hidden in plain sight in my Sept. 7 column, “Katie Couric, Look in the Mirror.” ACORN was not the only target of those videos; so were Katie, Brian, Charlie and every other mainstream media pooh-bah.

They were not going to report this blockbuster unless they were forced to. And they were. What’s more, it ain’t over yet. Not every hint I dropped in that piece about what was to come has played itself out yet. Stay tuned.

Pass the popcorn. This is gonna be good. Breitbart, Beck, Hannity, Giles and O'Keefe are just getting started.
