President Obama took great pains Sunday to act as if he barely knew about Acorn. In fact, his association goes back almost 20 years. In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella.
The drive registered 135,000 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senat

I remember Hillary Clinton, and Sarah Palin and some of the FOX cynics
making fun on Barack Obama being an ACORN community organizer.
They said it was a tiny insignificant thing for him to brag about.
Now all of a sudden the ACORN group is important enough to hit the
Foxnews.com front page for days on end? I don't think any of the
TV or Radio media people would give a hoot about the illicit ACORN
behaviors if President Obama didn't have past ties to the organization.
After all, President Obama himself said that Government wastes billions
of dollars with less-than-honest government contracted entities.
It's amazing how Democratic media hates a Republican President and
how Republican media despises a Democratic President. There are
probably people who make themselves mentally and physically sick
over this stuff!
It's ACORN for the mere meaning that anyone in it is just a nut!
