The Obamessiah isn't paying attention.....

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.
I know that ACORN is getting funds so how could it be that he not know. The reason he says that he isn't paying attention to this is that this is where he comes from, these are the clowns that elected him and he cannot afford to be connected to them now. Now we not only have the least capable person to ever hold the office of President, we also have one that is arrogant that says there are more important things he is working on and maybe thinking 'don't bother me you little people'.

Consider this, is he just lying or is completely incompetent? How is it that he didn't even know that ACORN was getting Federal money when there was a very public fight back in January when Congress actually tried to give hundreds of millions of dollars to ACORN as I certainly recall when the pork-u-lus bill was being debated....
Republican lawmakers are raising concerns that ACORN, the low-income advocacy group under investigation for voter registration fraud, could be eligible for billions in aid from the economic stimulus proposal working its way through the House.

House Republican Leader John Boehner issued a statement over the weekend noting that the stimulus bill wending its way through Congress provides $4.19 billion for "neighborhood stabilization activities."

He said the money was previously limited to state and local governments, but that Democrats now want part of it to be available to non-profit entities. That means groups like ACORN would be eligible for a portion of the funds.
From here. ACORN is an advocacy group for Democrats and does groundwork for their election. How reasonable is it to directly fund groups from taxpayers money that advocates one political party over another? Something like this should not happen in a democracy. Its a disgrace.
