Obama saved the country, but he’s guilty by association to association re: ACORN

What's that in your pocket, Gaspard? Could it be... an ACORN?

What's that in your pocket, Gaspard? Could it be... an ACORN?

Obama may have saved the country from the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, but his ties to ACORN are deeper than he wants you to know. That’s right: Just yesterday the American Spectator reported that Obama’s political affairs director Patrick Gaspard used to work for ACORN in New York!

“Evidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration, Gaspard was ACORN boss Bertha Lewis’s political director in New York,” the Spectator’s Matthew Vadum writes. The good folks at The Corner put this news in perspective: “No doubt, some will dismiss the newly revealed connections between the Obama administration, Patrick Gaspard, Bertha Lewis, and ACORN as ‘guilt by association,’” writes Stanley Kurtz. “Yet it seems to me that the evidence points to something more significant than that. We are talking about a persistent and shared political-ideological alliance between President Obama and the complex of community, labor, and party organizations controlled by ACORN.”

So there you have it: Though he saved the country from certain economic collapse, Obama has indellible ties to ACORN!

UPDATE: Oh, oops. Ben Smith reports that the entire story is 100% false. So Obama isn’t guilty by association, but he’s still guilty by being associated with association, and in my mind, that’s still plenty guilty.

  1. As Eisenhower warned us, we must beware the Community Organizational Complex.

    Latest Association by Association meme, SEIU and the Chicago office of ACORN share office space, therefore the Census must prohibit their workers from joining SEIU.

  2. Wait, Obama saved the country??? You should probably check your premise before typing anything else…

  3. Obama may have saved the country from economic collapse and the potential of a continuing legacy of illegally and unConstitutionally torturing anyone we can get our hands on, but WHAT’S UP WITH ACORN? I hadn’t even heard about them in the Kerry/Bush contest. Now I find out they’ve been around for years??? Why weren’t we all over this! I hope no Regent U grads accidentally worked there! (J/K! There’s no money in helping the poor! Regent U grads know better than that!)
