Flashback Obama: ACORN Will Shape My Agenda

Posted by iusbvision on September 5, 2010

We remember ACORN, the vote fraud supporting, anti-capitalist group who sued and used intimidation tactic to force banks to give ba high risk loans which helped bring about the mortgage collapse? The same ACORN that was caught on video in multiple offices conspiring to be an accomplice to bank fraud, tax fraud, child prostitution and human trafficking.  Friends of Obama collected TARP funds and then turned around and donated millions to ACORN and other Obama allies. Welcome to Chicago.

Our friends at FACTREAL put together a nice video diary of ACORN’s recent antics.

Of all of the broken promises and the lies, the two videos below outline the worst and the cost in human suffering that has been the result – LINKLINK for details.

Time-Yahoo News Blast Obama & Donnelly

Posted by iusbvision on September 5, 2010

UPDATE – Wow, even the AP blasted Donnelly. AP: Vulnerable House Democrats work to hide party ties

Time-Yahoo News:

The Barack Obama that most Hoosiers remember voting for can still be found on YouTube. He stands before a cheering Elkhart high school gymnasium in August 2008, tireless, aspirational, promising a new America of jobs and hope. “We can choose another future,” says the newcomer with the funny name. “So I ask you to join me.”

Today that view of Obama is harder to find in Indiana. A couple of weeks back and a dozen miles west of Elkhart, hundreds gathered in another school gym – except this time it was for a job fair. With the local unemployment rate above 12% and rising again this summer, about a third of the employer display tables stood empty. Julie Griffin, who voted for Obama in ’08, sat down at the room’s edge, well dressed and discouraged. After 23 years as a payroll administrator at a local RV plant, she got laid off 18 months ago. “Really, what has he been doing?” she said when I asked about Obama’s efforts to help people like her. “I guess I don’t know what he is doing.” (See TIME’s 2008 Person of the Year: Barack Obama.)

Across the gym floor, Joe Donnelly, Elkhart’s pro-life, pro-gun Democratic Congressman, worked the crowd. He was part of the moderate wave that won Congress for Nancy Pelosi in ’06, and he was re-elected with 67% of the vote while campaigning for Obama in ’08. The President has since returned to the region three times, but Donnelly is nonetheless fighting for his political life. In a recent television ad, an unflattering photo of Obama and Pelosi flashes while Donnelly condemns “the Washington crowd.” This is basically a Democratic campaign slogan now: Don’t blame me for Obama and Pelosi. “I’m not one of them,” Donnelly told me when I caught up with him. “I’m one of us.” (See the top 10 Obama backlash moments.)

[IUSB Vision Editor Comments: Donnelly who voted to take the vote away from unions with card check legislation, voted for stimulus, porkulus, and ObamaCare which can allow for taxpayer funded abortions now dares to insult the voter’s intelligence by running against the very Democratic Leadership he betrayed Indiana voters for.]

This shift in perception – from Obama as political savior to Obama as creature of Washington – can be seen elsewhere. When Obama arrived in office in January ’09, his Gallup approval rating stood at 68%, a high for a newly elected leader not seen since John Kennedy in 1961. Today Obama’s job approval has been hovering in the mid-40s, which means that at least 1 in 4 Americans has changed his or her mind. The plunge has been particularly dramatic among independents, whites and those under age 30. With midterm elections just nine weeks off, instead of the generational transformation some Democrats predicted after 2008, the President’s party teeters on the brink of a broad setback in November, including the possible loss of both houses of Congress. By a 10-point margin, people say they will vote for Republicans over Democrats in Congress, the largest such gap ever recorded by Gallup. (See pictures of Obama behind the scenes on Inauguration Day.)

White House aides explain this change as a largely inevitable reflection of the cycles of history. Midterms are almost always bad for first-term Presidents, and worse in hard times. “The public is rightly frustrated and angry with the economy,” says Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s communications director, explaining the White House line. “There is no small tactical shift we could have made at any point that would have solved that problem.” In more confiding moments, aides admit that the peak of Obama’s popularity may have been inflated, a fleeting result of elation at the prospect of change and national pride in electing the first African-American President. As one White House aide puts it, “It was sort of fake.” (Comment on this story.)

But while these explanations may be valid, they are also incomplete. A sense of disappointment, bordering on betrayal, has been growing across the country, especially in moderate states like Indiana, where people now openly say they didn’t quite understand the President they voted for in 2008. The fear most often expressed is that Obama is taking the country somewhere they don’t want to go. “We bought what he said. He offered a lot of hope,” says Fred Ferlic, an Obama voter and orthopedic surgeon in South Bend who has since soured on his choice. Ferlic talks about the messy compromises in health care reform, his sense of an inhospitable business climate and the growth of government spending under Obama. “He’s trying to Europeanize us, and the Europeans are going the other way,” continues Ferlic, a former Democratic campaign donor who plans to vote Republican this year. “The entire American spirit is being broken.”

Wow, this blistering article coming from Time, who’s left wing cred is beyond reproach, is devestating. LBJ said that when he lost far left broadcaster Walter Cronkite he knew he had lost America, when Obama has lost liberal icons such as Time and David Letterman it is indicative of how much change upcoming elections are likely to be.
