In recent days, a handful of the president's supporters garnered large headlines. Each of them have one thing in common. They are rabid supporters of President Obama, and in many ways reflect his very own tendencies and lack of candor, but with far less grace.
They have openly confessed to murder, they have refused to allow independent investigations to look into their odd activities, they have pledged retribution towards those who exposed them, and they have even proudly told a creeped-out nation that they would do it all over again.
Unfortunately for the President, they are a precise result of the type of political worldview that swept him into office.
Over the last few weeks two courageous young people did the nation a favor by accomplishing something the media establishment, the President, and the people's servants--Congress, would not. Through the simple act of asking questions, these two twenty-somethings produced perhaps the most effective sting operation ever performed against a crooked organization that seeks to rot society at large through its own diseased corruption. As a result, the evidence produced forced both houses of Congress to vote to stop all funding to the group.
On the video tapes seen-round-the-world, ACORN workers, literally from sea to shining sea, advised fraud, bragged about murder, and confessed to their own past operations of prostitution agencies. Some of them, including the self proclaimed killer, lauded the current administration as being able to "get things done."
But how did the head of this supposedly honorable organization respond?
By falsely accusing Fox News of setting the whole thing up, and pledging at first blush to take hard-core legal action against the two-person team that captured the wrongdoing on tape. Then, when questioned directly on Fox News Sunday, the head of ACORN refused to admit that she would take any efforts to allow outside investigators to look into ACORN's vetting and operations practices. Again, all the while singing the President's praises.
Of course, this week a video tape turned up from a Burlington New Jersey public elementary school in which the children themselves were the ones singing literal praise and worship tunes to the President. Singing about his "great accomplishments," making the "economy number one again," and replacing the name of the crucified Lord and inserting the name of President Obama were just some of the elements of the tape.
