Obama Wants Investigation Of ACORN

From a trusting Associated Press:


Obama favors investigation into ACORN’s activities

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says there deserves to be an investigation into that hidden-camera video involving two employees at the activist group ACORN and a couple posing as a prostitute and her pimp.

The ACORN workers are seen apparently advising the couple to lie about her profession and launder her earnings.

The House has voted to deny all federal funds for the group, while the Senate agreed to shut off housing and community grant money. The Census Bureau has cut ties with ACORN for the 2010 national census amid Republican accusations of voter-registration fraud.

Obama tells ABC’s "This Week" that what he saw on the video "was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated." He did not say who should investigate. But he also says it’s not a major national issue and it’s not something he’s paying a lot of attention to.

ACORN — which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — has ordered its own independent investigation of the incidents.

We suspect that the ever naive Associated Press is confused about whom Mr. Obama wants investigated.

Obama tells ABC’s "This Week" that what he saw on the video "was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated."

Note that this could very well mean that he considers the video inappropriate and deserving of investigation. After all, the Maryland Attorney General is already drawing up charges against the young undercover reporters.

But on the outside chance Mr. Obama is saying that he favors an investigation of ACORN, it is only so that he can control it.

But we will believe it when we don’t see it.

    CRISIS…..WHAT CRISIS?
    I don’t see or smell smoke!

  3. catie says:

    Sure he does.

  4. Confucius says:

    Sure. Just like he investigated his own involvement with Blago.

  5. Fuzzlenutter says:

    My money is on Comrade Zero wanting an investigation of James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, Andrew Breitbart, BigGovernment.com, and FOX News.

    I mean, he sure loves killing babies so why wouldn’t he love human trafficking in 13-15 year-old girls for sex slavery?

  6. proreason says:

    What?

    The Moron investigate himself? For what? Being himself?

  7. Melly says:

    Is Stefanloupolus (I couldn’t care less about the correct spelling of his name) a butt boy for Barry or what?

    “I am shocked, shocked, to find that gambling is going on in here!”

  9. Tater Salad says:

    I’ll put money on it that Obama will now use the CIA to investigate Acorn since they don’t have anything to do now because of his support to put the thumbs on any CIA foreign investigations. Un-believeable!

  10. Tater Salad says:

    How ironic that an organization mentioned above is called Acorn. Acorns come from the tree and the tree has been shook which brings them to the ground. About time!

  11. imnewatthis says:

    Notice how smug and dismissive he is when he assures G.S. it’s not a major issue and he hasn’t been paying attention to it (yah, right)!

  12. canary says:

    He’s too busy having beer summits, watching MTV awards, and writing all those books he’s under contract for. He looks a bit loopy.
