Obama's Pattern of Lying Until Caught

Once again Barack Obama has been busted in a bald-faced lie. With all of the recent flow of information concerning the role of ACORN in the current financial crisis and the flood of nationwide investigations into massive voter fraud into this dubious organization, Obama clearly backed away from any association with them. Days ago I saw Obama's "fight the smears" website giving a clear denial that he was ever associated with ACORN stating:
  • Fact: Barack was never an ACORN community organizer
  • Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity
  • Fact: ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992.
Gateway Pundit has pointed out (with before and after screen shots) that the Obama campaign has scrubbed their website with new twisted wording to avoid the clearly false claim that he never trained for ACORN. The Cleveland Leader has the story exposing Obama as indeed having done some training for ACORN. It quotes an ACORN publication from 2004 by Tony Foulkes, ACORN leader:

"Obama took the case, known as ACORN vs. Edgar (the name of the Republican governor at the time) and we won. Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992 that made it possible for Carol Moseley Braun to win the Senate that year. Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5,000 of them).

Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for STate Senate and then his failed bid for U.S. Congress in 1996. By the time he ran for U.S. Senate, we were old friends."

The Obama camp realizes it has been busted in this lie about training and now has changed the wording on their site stating now:
  • Fact: ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.
The training claim is not the only misleading "fact" on Obama's website. Sweetness and Light has the rundown on the close associations that Project Vote and ACORN have. It has two New York Times' links, a Time Magazing link and a Palm Beach Post link declaring in 2004 that Project Vote is an "arm" of ACORN. It shows the two organziations sharing offices and advertising. Finally it shows proof of money transferred between the organizations.

We saw a pattern with Obama and information about Bill Ayers where he tried to get away with the small claim that Ayers was just a guy in their neighborhood. As more and more info comes out about Ayers and ACORN, Obama just keeps morphing and scrubbing to adapt and trusts his media sycophants to cover for him. With Obama's track record of lies, how likely is it that we will ever get to the bottom of:

- His true association with Ayers
- His the legality of many of his donations
- Whether or not he has actually stopped smoking
- His relationship with an aide
- His side dealings with Iraq to stall a withdrawal plan

Charlie Gibson recently asked John McCain if he thought that Obama has not after two years been thoroughly vetted. McCain had an oppotunity to rattle off a list of the areas of Obama's life we know little or nothing about and ask Gibson how he could consider Obama vetted without having that information exposed.

We are very likely seeing a repeat of history from 1992 when the media covered for Bill Clinton long enough to get him into office. With the New Media maturing they could not hold it back for long and we then had the Whitewater investigation and the exposure of Clinton's sexual addictions. If the media is able to pull it off again, look for a slew of issue to crop up about Obama in the first two years of his presidency. Look for the media to play innocent as if they knew nothing about it. If they don't know, it is because they are not bothering to look. They just ignore the rug with the huge lump under it and call the place clean.

    Rezko, Wright, Raines, Ayers … and now Acorn!!! This is over the top. Obama’s a fraud and should not be allowed anywhere near the White House.

    Does Obama even know any nice people?

    Ted / Skyepuppy,

    Obama is the biggest media perpetrated hoax right behind global warming. I will be writing soon about what I call the "consolation prize" if Obama wins. I would rather not get that opportunity but those who know me know I am incurably optimistic and find the silver lining in every dark cloud.
