Community Organizers

Stanley Kurtz looks into ACORN and the Bamulator:

What if Barack Obama’s most important radical connection has been hiding in plain sight all along? Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn), the largest radical group in America. If I told you Obama had close ties with or Code Pink, you’d know what I was talking about. Acorn is at least as radical as these better-known groups, arguably more so. Yet because Acorn works locally, in carefully selected urban areas, its national profile is lower. Acorn likes it that way. And so, I’d wager, does Barack Obama.

I'm not so concerned that such groups exist. What concerns me is that Obama wants to give them four to eight billion dollars in stimulus money. (yes, that's billion with a "b") And as Michelle Malkin points out, ACORN and Obama seem to be one big happy (corrupt) family. How much more damaging to our political system will they be with that kind of money?
