Bzzzzzt!… GOP Chairman Gets ACORN Wrong!

Ugh. We can’t afford to have the leader of the GOP be this clueless:

Partial transcript via Gateway Pundit:

“The organization has a problem that it needs to deal with, with the Congress. I will say that current head of the organization, she has done a phenomenal job of getting out in front of it. I applaud her. I take her at her word that she wants to work to make sure that the bad apples are thrown out.”

Before all of the Giles and O’Keefe’s damning sting videos were rolled out, Bertha Lewis was in full spin mode, lying through her teeth, and attacking the messengers.

He applauds this pathetic dissembling?:

This recent scam, which was attempted in San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia to name a few places, had failed for months before the results we’ve all recently seen.
-Bertha Lewis, Chief Organizer, ACORN

The  San Diego and New York videos have already been released, and Giles and O’Keefe claim that they were not kicked out of any ACORN offices.

She also accused Fox of spending millions, if not tens of millions” to destroy her sainted ACORN.

The relentless attacks on ACORN’s members, its staff and the policies and positions we promote are unprecedented. An international entertainment conglomerate, disguising itself as a “news” agency (Fox), has expended millions, if not tens of millions of dollars, in their attempt to destroy the largest community organization of Black, Latino, poor and working families in the country. It is not coincidence that the most recent attacks have been launched just when health care reform is gaining traction. It is clear they’ve had these tapes for months.

-Bertha Lewis, Chief Organizer, ACORN

Giles and O’Keefe had a $1,300 budget of their own money for their entire sting operation.

Finally, Bertha Lewis  is in the process of suing Breitbart, Giles, and O’keefe after saying she was grateful to them for helping ACORN root out the bad apples.

Just “phenomenal”.

Forget “a few bad apples”…What will it take to convince some people that  ACORN is rotten to the core?

A Reason Why So Many Parents Were Nervous About Obama’s Speech To School Children (UPDATED)

ACORN Round-Up: Baghdad Bertha And All The Latest

The latest on the ACORN front at Fox News, this morning:

Before Chris Berg of Big Government met Wade Rathke at a book signing he thought of him as a former leader of the group who was willing to go down with the ship…After meeting him, he was convinced:

He’s more like the Iraqi Information Minister “Baghdad Bob” – in denial, steadfastly claiming victory even as American tanks rolled past.

After watching Bertha Lewis in that clip, it’s clear that she is comfortable in her role of Baghdad Bertha. More on her speech to the National Press club, here.

Big Government, of course has been heavily covering ACORN’s public implosion:

Breaking: Louisiana’s Attorney General: Rathke Embezzled 5 Million From ACORN

Michelle Malkin says:

The $5 million ACORN embezzlement figure is not new — and the NYT knows it

Laughably, the New York Times runs its own brief story tonight (without crediting the Times-Picayune) and regurgitates ACORN chief organizer Bertha Lewis’s spin:

Amount Embezzled From Acorn Is Disputed

An internal review at Acorn, the embattled community organizing group, revealed that its founder’s brother had embezzled $5 million from the group, five times more than the amount disclosed, according to a subpoena served Monday by the Louisiana attorney general. But the organization’s chief executive denied that any internal review had revealed that figure.

Now, the rest of the story that the New York Times won’t tell you.Former ACORN/Project Vote worker Anita MonCrief — the independent whistleblower who worked closely with NYTimes reporter Stephanie Strom on exposing ACORN financial shenanigans last year before Times editors “cut bait” just weeks before Election Day — informed Strom that the true figure was $5 million.

MonCrief also reported the $5 million figure to Warner Todd Huston in April 2009.

Once again, the Times covers for ACORN rather than covers them…

Meanwhile, over at Atlas Shrugs, Pamala Geller has an explosive ACORN exclusive:

Confirmed: White House Passed Out White Coats To Docs

obama docs

astroturf to the end


Commenters at Big Government, yesterday were skeptical about the sea of white lab coats seen in the audience of the White House lawn for the President’s public option photo op, yesterday.:

Physicians do NOT wear their labcoats outside of the hospital or office. This is a GOTCHA. I also do NOT know of any of my physician associates who support Obamas health plan.

I was married to a doctor and spent countless hours around them, and when I saw that picture I just thought “HOLY SH!T I’m living in the new soviet union.”

While I have no doubt that Obama had no trouble finding a flock of single payer doctors to show up for his photo op, I do think it’s funny that the White House was desperate enough to pass out white lab coats to make the photo op perfectly-perfect.

A sea of 150 white-coated doctors, all enthusiastically supportive of the president and representing all 50 states, looked as if they were at a costume party as they posed in the Rose Garden before hearing Obama’s pitch for the Democratic overhaul bills moving through Congress.

The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image.

But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.

So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.

‘You look very spiffy in your coats.’ Obama told the group of doctors after his aides had handed out a great many of them.


Patterico is not sure that all of the doctors in attendance at the President’s photo op were even pro-ObamaCare . According to the testimony of one doctor who was invited, the vetting process was not terribly rigorous, as he was invited, and he has led the fight to pass state legislation and constitutional amendments to prohibit individual insurance mandates. He wonders if some of the doctors who were there, were just flattered to be invited to the White House.


Michelle Malkin called it Halloween at the White House, lol.

Perfunction goes down memory lane: White House Props Up Unpopular Policy With Props


Getting little media attention, last month, hundreds of anti-Obamacare doctors also demonstrated in DC…

You may have heard of doctors who greedily amputate legs, and tear out tonsils when it’s not necessary…that would be these guys:

Obama’s EEOC Nominee Supported Polygamy

Obama has nominated outspoken gay rights activist, and Georgetown University Law Center professor Chai R. Feldblum for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). She  is listed as a signatory to the July 26, 2006 manifesto “Beyond Same-Sex Marriage: A New Strategic Vision for All Our Families & Relationships”, which included a polygamous arrangement, (among others) as a type of household as “socially, economically, and spiritually worthy” as traditional marriage.

Catholic News Agency reports:

The manifesto’s signatories said they proposed a “new vision” for governmental and private recognition of “diverse kinds” of

partnerships, households and families. They said they hoped to “move beyond the narrow confines of marriage politics” in the U.S.

Describing various kinds of households as no less socially, economically, and spiritually worthy than other relationships, the Beyond Marriage manifesto listed “committed, loving households in which there is more than one conjugal partner.”

Same-sex marriage, the manifesto said, should be “just one option on a menu of choices that people have about the way they construct their lives.”

“Marriage is not the only worthy form of family or relationship, and it should not be legally and economically privileged above all others,” the manifesto continued. “While we honor those for whom marriage is the most meaningful personal ­– for some, also a deeply spiritual – choice, we believe that many other kinds of kinship relationship, households, and families must also be accorded recognition.”

The manifesto listed as one of its principles “freedom from a narrow definition of our sexual lives and gender choices, identities, and expression.”
