I actually have a friend who is still defending them too. He thinks the people in the video knew something was up and were “clowning the clowns”. And also that all organizations have some idiots. Oh, and none of this would have happened if it wasn’t for stupid Fox News. I mean, honestly.

From the Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Obama added that an investigation of Acorn was appropriate after an amateur hidden-camera investigation had found Acorn offices willing to abet prostitution, but he carefully declined to say whether he would approve a federal cutoff of funds to the group.
Transcript of the relevant questions-and-answers here.
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.
ACORN must have some goooooood dirt on Obama if they aren’t already under his bus….
so you have a friend who’s an idiot – that’s nothing to be ashamed of
I find it increasingly bizarre, as if online info is surrounded by some invisible barbed wire: when fancy (or couple of friends’ pointers) bring me to a blog by a lefty, they exhibit a totally distorted-reality – universe. Like the other day – an otherwise VERY intelligent and funny guy was insensed at the mouth at the gall, at some nerve, at the rudeness and total barbarian inappropriateness of Joe Wilson’ remark! And immediately after this display of his almost-Victorian ode to Keeping Up Decorum, in the comments, his own deranged Democratic base was foaming at their collective mouths recalling Bush. Yep, nobody reminded them – they, by some mysterious psychological self-defeating reason immediately started comparing Congress under Bush to Congress under ∅bama. With the funny part that in their mind Dems in Bush’ Congress, apparently, were behaving as cherubim.
The reason some left wingers are screaming that it’s all a fake, is because left wingers are generally allergic to truth.
They aren’t motivated by truth, rather, they’re motivated by a bizarre obsession with a utopian re-distribution of wealth.
They’re also motivated by the bizarre notion that people are not indivudually responsible for their own actions, or even for their own lives.
