Quotes of the day

posted at 10:20 pm on September 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

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.

***
“Independent prosecutors should not be appointed lightly. But in this case, there are good reasons why Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and other political appointees in the Justice Department should step aside. First, although no allegations have yet touched the Obama campaign, ACORN did have significant ties to the campaign and other progressive causes. Published reports show that ACORN and its subsidiaries received some $800,000 from the Obama campaign to get out the vote. Second, ACORN is intimately tied to the Service Employees International Union, one of President Barack Obama’s most powerful and vocal supporters…

What we have seen on tape cries out for a serious, independent investigation to determine if ACORN and its affiliates are a criminal enterprise, whether they have spent federal grants lawfully, whether they helped taxpayers file fraudulent returns, and whether they violated laws prohibiting tax-exempt organizations from engaging in partisan politics. These are big questions, and the public needs to know that Washington’s answers are fair and impartial.”

***
“Now that the White House supports an investigation, Congress should make sure to investigate:

1) How Team Obama hid its $800,000 campaign payment to ACORN through front group ‘Citizen Services, Inc.’;

2) How Team Obama shared donor lists with the president’s old employer, ACORN affiliate Project Vote, a 501(c)(3) organization, which is prohibited from engaging in political activity (Mr. President, meet Anita MonCrief);

3) And how Project Vote and hundreds of myriad entities intermingled non-profit, tax-exempt funding with the national ACORN flagship’s political operations — a buried story Obama would know about if he read NYTimes reporter Stephanie Strom’s report last October before she was muzzled as Election Day drew near.”

Well I never followed LGF but you do make a good point. Slippery slope.

elduende on September 21, 2009 at 12:41 AM

I was on LGF and was banned because I dared to disagree with CJ’s position on evolution and expressed disappointment with the amount of time being spent on that rather than other things. Was not disrespectful, did not troll, did not use profanity or abuse — just expressed unhappiness with the number of threads bashing creationists.

I like it here on HotAir, I like the site, I like the posters, and I like those who run it. I really don’t want to see things devolve in the way they did over there.

Deleting no-kidding racist or abusive comments, absolutely. Deleting someone who is verbally characturing a public figure? We had to put up with that for 8+ years, we dealt with it and the left put forth no apologies. We are all grownups, they may be children or act like children, but let them. Does anyone think that any different view of the conservative side would be obtained from the left if the right only spoke in rigid, proper address?

Sorry for the rant, this was a disturbing development I never thought to see from HA.

AZfederalist on September 21, 2009 at 12:53 AM

Wait a minute…the president pays attention to what Kanye West says at an awards show, but doesn’t pay attention to corruption in an organization that receives tax-payer money?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!

Then why don’t you know that Barack Obama, as a regular civilian, would never get a high level security clearance?

MB4 on September 20, 2009 at 11:34 PM

Honestly, no one can make that determination except someone who performs those investigations like OSI, which I’m not, which was ultimately my point. I was trying to call BS, but got dragged into a clearance argument. But this will be my last post in that regard. I’m back on-topic.

StoneKrab on September 20, 2009 at 11:42 PM

Not to revisit, but here: http://www.opm.gov/Forms/pdf_fill/sf86.pdf

That is what all federal agencies require in order to initiate your background investigation. Assuming the President filled it out factually and his investigator did their job I think he would be denied. Just my opinion though.

blankminde on September 21, 2009 at 1:01 AM

Obama said he would go through the budget line by line to make sure that our money is spent wisly.
Today its “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”. Try reading the bill Mr President because if you didn’t know, you should have, you signed it!

Dollayo on September 21, 2009 at 1:02 AM

Although you guys should know, that Michelle and both Ed and Allah are being targeted and anything that can be used to discredit them (fairly or unfairly) the left will employ. Including our comments.

elduende on September 21, 2009 at 12:16 AM

Sorta smacks of “Thought Police”, doesn’t it? When HA and its commenters have to speak “carefully” as to avoid reprisal, a line is truly crossed.

BTW – Tomorrow looks VERY BAD for the Obama team, courtesy of Breitbart! You know, the whole system is OVERDUE for a purge of these corrupt bastards, every g*ddam one of them! Couldn’t happen to a nicer administration. Pretty sweet, actually.

C’mon George. . . .The guys got the whole
world to govern. One little ACORN group or
a thousand is beneath him and that was sooo last week.

This week he’s got swine flu and sneezing methods

Texyank on September 21, 2009 at 1:11 AM

The President of the United States is saying he has no clue
about ACORN,and yet,has had experience in street agitation
as a Community Organizer,and yet,no idea of ACORN!

And yet,the Liberal Party are intertwined and inexplicable
connected to ACORN,and again,Obama has no idea!

Bring up any subject,politically connected there-in,and hes
off to the usually deflection,of more important things to be
worried about,probably like clamping down on the comments in
the RightSphere blogsphere!!

No,Liberals will never answer a question,they like to spin the tables and ask you qestion while they try to search,spin
and stall,hoping you move on to the next one!!

Obama knows exactly what hes doing!!

Don’t be fooled,but then,H/A knew this in the first month
of the Liberal primaries!!

Fishoutofwater on September 21, 2009 at 1:04 AM

Let the nutjob trolls and mobys~ AKA Kilgore Trout (and his mask replicas)~ do their damnedest, and let them get called for it by those commenting alongside them on the thread, and enjoy the polemical ferment and rousing back and forth.

It’s what hones the intellect and strengthens the political spine.

If they resort to pure scurrilous lunacy and mere racist claptrap, then simply scrub it.

But to remove sardonic or comic and satiric barbs and honest political Swiftian rage and lampoonery… that p.c.-leaning nonsense merely plays into the hands of the opposition who shout: “Geld yourself to show us that you are not the racist, neo-Nazi, homophobic scum we accuse you of being!“.

It is the folly of allowing your knife-wielding opponent to insist you only use a nail file.

You end up well-groomed, but eviscerated.

Keep it hard-hitting.

Marshmallows get roasted.

profitsbeard on September 21, 2009 at 1:18 AM

Obama barely knows anything about ACORN. Imagine that.

(You’ll have to, because I can’t.)

capitalist piglet on September 21, 2009 at 1:23 AM

Seems to be the administration’s new approach to news that is unfavorable — they don’t know much about it, haven’t been following it, this is the first they’ve heard about it, etc. I guess they are going with the “ignorance is bliss” defense, and the “I can’t be called on something I don’t know about” approach.

Kind of raises the question though, if they are truly this clueless about what is going on inside the country (and 800,000 people in DC is kind of hard to miss), what are they doing trying to run this country.

As others have said:
1) They are so totally ignorant and clueless, they have no business being in charge or
2) They are so totally corrupt and lying, ignoring the input from their constituents that they have no business being in charge.

AZfederalist on September 21, 2009 at 1:34 AM

Really, I have a TS, what do you have? Surely, you work for OSI to make such a bold assertion. I know what those investigations entail, because mine is currently being renewed. How are you able to back your claim up?

StoneKrab on September 20, 2009 at 11:07 PM

Well, I’ll start by my screen name. StoneKrab = 506 AEG (Kirkuk). Considering I was part of that unit and used that particular callsign, that would make me a 1C3X1, (Command Post Apprentice/Controller)which I’ve been for about 8 yrs now. A basic requirement is that you have a minimum of a TS. Do your research, it all checks out. Pretty elaborate story to make-up in 5 minutes, don’t ya think? Where’s your proof of your “FACT”?

Seven Percent Solution on September 21, 2009 at 2:35 AM

They’ll be hushing this up. Desperately hushing all they can, but if we’re to succeed in gaining a true investigation then we must keep pushing the story and banging on the politicals doors until they are running scared like chit thru a goose. Write your Senator and Rep and don’t backoff.

Lets put together a you-tube video of Obama boasting during his campaign about his work with / for ACORN as his qualification for Prez, followed by his speech that ACORN and SEIU will have a seat at the table during policy decisions, followed by Gibbs trying to distance the Obama WH from ACORN followed by Obama’s comment to GS that he did not pay attention to ACORN scandal b/c it is not important enough . End the video with his own words ” what a jackass”

Completely agree. If that wanker really does have a level 3 clearance, he wouldn’t be bragging about it online. And that’s if he had it as a defense contractor. If he really is part of a deployed unit, his discussion here is inexcusable.

There are guys at the DSS (Defense Security Service) who still take their jobs seriously. Krab boy had better hope none of them are reading this blog.

Wanderlust on September 21, 2009 at 4:57 AM

All the reasons you’ve itemized for a special prosecutor, are precisely the reasons they will fight it to the death. You really think Holder or Obama are going to just roll over and accept the idea of ACORN being investigated? People thought Nixon stonewalled? I’m afraid they ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

atheling on September 20, 2009 at 11:29 PM

atheling, exactly right!

I’ve noticed an growing aggression by Leftwingers who post such on the internet, wherever a blog or site reflects an UN-Leftwing (or, Non-Leftwing) perspective.

Whenever I read comments from users who go on in great details on public commenting with generic I.D.’s about their elabortate (“top secret!”) grand, coded “secret” “intelligence” “training”…well, it’s a very good indication they’re off their rockers.

People so highly trained (in reality) aren’t such blabbermouths but Leftwinger Alinsky-agitators are.

Come on, he is still all wee-weed up and “acting stupidly”. Add that most of this hard stuff is over his pay grade, and you can see why he is running like a mad man away from ACORN.

The sad truth is he is an amateur and one with the biggest ego ever. These are not qualifications for leadership.

InTheBellyoftheBeast on September 21, 2009 at 6:29 AM

This should be the theme of today’s call to Congressional reps.

To use Dr. Phil philosophy, what in Obama’s past behavior has indicated that he will seriously pursue this, in an unbiased way? Of course there will be some sort of investigation conducted by the admin that will assuredly find no untoward conduct except by these 4, er 5, er 7 employees.

Call. Write. Fax. Email. We want all funds suspended and an independent investigation, including an audit of the last 8-10 years. We now they fudged the 2008 election – let’s prove it. Congress critters want to keep their jobs? Make them earn it.

Funny,, then why does he hate talk radio so much?? He devoted a portion of his time attacking talk radio during his big speech,, yet he doesn’t seem to have a clue about ACORN?? Guess he no longer listens any more.
He can only get away with this kind of stuff with his lap dog state run scam of a press.

You got it backward moron. The GOP has been calling for investigations for months rising out of all the voter fraud. They have been thwarted by the filthy liar in the White House and his corrupt party who have funneled millions to ACORN. In short, the call should be for the filthy Democrats to drop their objections and join the GOP in calling for an investigation of ACORN and their activities.

Not everyone is as smart as you are, my dear yoda. Some need gentle prodding and information shared in small, bite-size pieces. Others need long dissertations with lots of quotes and references. And many need to be sledge hammered until they go away.

Sometimes, I confess it’s difficult for me to figure out who’s who, and which technique is best to use with whom, where and when.

He called someone a “moron”. Then he called (wrote) someone a “filthy liar in the Whitehouse”. Lastly he used the term “filthy democrats”. Not only is the last comment very abusive but it is spelled wrong, the correct spelling would be filthy democratics. I expect this to be punished at once. Where are the writing police?

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.

YOU LIE!

FireBlogger on September 21, 2009 at 8:45 AM

I never thought I would say this, but I really miss Bill Clinton. Sure he was a liar, but he really knew how to lie. He did it with class, with finesse, with schmooze, lots of ways, but he knew, as all good con men do, just how far he could push the envelope at each moment, and he always went right up to the line.

Obama? A clumsy amateur in comparison.

BTW, I loved that picture someone linked to above, with Obama surrounded by a pile of acorns, saying “Acorn? What Acorn?”

jwolf on September 21, 2009 at 8:45 AM

RNC….are you reading this? Now don’t mess up!!

yoda on September 21, 2009 at 8:38 AM

We all have a part to play, not just the RNC. Even you and me, right here, in everything we choose to post or not post.

So, to the extent we can, in everything we say and do, we need to rebuild Reagan’s grand coalition to a conservative led majority victory in 2010. However, that means doing what we can to temper our own tempers and reach out to other Obama opponents with whom we have strong disagreements about political policies, cultural and religious issues, and candidates. And 2010 comes before 2012, so presidential candidate politics must be placed second to winning back Congress in 2010.

Keep you eyes on the prize.

This isn’t easy.

So, being patient with ourselves and one another helps. Kindness helps. And humor also helps.

So, although we may disagree on many things, thank you for your patience, kindness and good humor.

Loxodonta on September 21, 2009 at 8:52 AM

Allahpundit, your choices of a still frame from a video are almost well-made, but the frame fronting this post is especially fine. That seems to be a moment in which the real Obama comes through.

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.

YOU LIE!!

1. No way he’s not following this closely; let’s not even dignify that with more of a response.

2. How in the F does he not know they’re getting “a whole lot of federal money” when he’s been joined at the hip to them for years? This doesn’t even pass the laugh test.

Liar in Chief.

I never thought I would say this, but I really miss Bill Clinton.

Hell, at this point I’m almost missing Jimmy Carter.

We’re to believe that he hasn’t been following the ACORN story, yet he’s been following:

- Kanye West
- Derek Jeter
- The Cambridge Police arerst of his Harvard professor friend

Obama is a pathetic joke.

Then again, he probably gets his news from CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and NBC.

Playing dumb.

I don’t think he’s playing.

Would mailing a postcard to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with a smiley face drawing of an ACORN on it, give Barry a clue?

Return address:

4 Heartland, America.

“George, I was only four years old when ACORN was founded”

Are there any pictures of Maobama where he doesn’t have that phony satanic smile and turned head? Look at the HotAir pictures this morning. I am sick of looking at this moron.

At the very least, Obama and ACORN share the same blood type. Probably the same DNA. Only a Couric or Gibson could be stupid enough to believe Obama doesn’t pay attention to ACORN’s actions or support them wholeheartedly.

Uh, uh, uh, uh, George, you know, if I really think about it, I don’t believe I have ever heard of that organization . . . what did you say it’s name was???? A horn? What was it?? Oh my, is that really my nose way out there??? Okay, I think I did hear the name once but don’t really know what they do. (The standard Obama administration lie, er, message.)

BTW, the tag line under his pic says “Playing dumb.” Who ever said he was playing???
