For Obama, the facts are damning: he was ACORN's man, he lied about his relationship with ACORN and the liberal media establishment covered up/ignored the illicit relationship between ACORN/Project Vote and the Obama presidential campaign.

Exposing the lies of a Far Left Democrat politician is effective. Just as Congressman Anthony Weiner. His fellow Democrats want him to disappear, because his status as a liar is crystal clear.

Conservatives meed to make it crystal clear that other Far Left Democrats have shamelessly ;ied too. If they do, stealth socialist progress will be through.

Thanks to the Tea Partiers, Republicans won control of the House of Representatives and made important gains in the United States Senate as well as other elections in 2010.

The Tea Partiers made the difference between winning and losing and they are principled people with traditional American values who cannot be taken for granted.

The Republican Establishment must not forget that.

The victory could have been even bigger if Republicans and Tea Partiers had been more united, and realistic.

Republicans and Tea Partiers must appreciate that.

America remains a center-right country, but President Barack Obama set out to "fundamentally transform" it.

We and future generations will pay the price of his desire to "spread the wealth" via deficit spending and send the cost of energy through the roof.

Republicans and Tea Partiers have a common interest in limiting the damage.

The rookie United States Senator with no executive experience before he became President fooled the voters in 2008 and then push a radical agenda as hard as he could.

As then Democrat presidential candidate Obama told plumber Joe Wurzelbacher in the fall of 2008:

"My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. If you've got a plumbing business, you're gonna be better off if you're gonna be better off if you've got a whole bunch of customers who can afford to hire you, and right now everybody's so pinched that business is bad for everybody and I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

Obama's been spreading borrowed wealth around and, unsurprisingly, his economic program has been a terrible failure.

The unemployment rate illustrates that.

Instead of dealing with America's spending problem, Obama exacerbated it. He pursued a big government stealth socialist agenda designed to insure not only his reelection, but also perpetual election of Leftist Democrats by a dependent majority class.

If the 2012 presidential election was a yes or no referendum on President Obama. he'd be a one-term president.

But it will be an election, not a referendum, and nominating a suitable alternative is a great challenge to the Republican Party.

If the Republican Party nominates a candidate who is unacceptable to the Tea Party, the likelihood is that Obama will win with a plurality of the popular vote and a majority of the electoral vote.

That would be a catastrophe worse than the conveniently timed financial crisis traceable to the Cloward-Piven strategy, ACORN, SEIU, the Community Reinvestment Act and Congressional Democrats blocking supervision of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that put Obama in the White House.

Character is critical, especially for a President, and Obama's bad character needs to be exposed instead of ignored.

Obama cleverly conned his way into the White House by concealing his radicalness.

Norman Thomas (1884-1968), six time Socialist Party candidate for President of the United States, declared in a speech in 1944: "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." He explained that he "no longer need[ed] to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party" because "[t]he Democratic Party has adopted our platform."

People like Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN and Sonia Sotomayor, the La Raza board member who became Obama's first United States Supreme Court appointee, know that word choice matters and packaging counts.

For Obama, the facts are damning: he was ACORN's man, he lied about his relationship with ACORN and the liberal media establishment covered up/ignored the illicit relationship between ACORN/Project Vote and the Obama presidential campaign.

In February 2010 Glenn Beck highlighted Obama's ACORN ties and lies about them (www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/36789/):

GLENN: So we have the audio of him and we'll play it for you in a second. And then he was on with George Stephanopoulos and he you know, George Stephanopoulos said, you know, what's the deal with ACORN? Are you aware of this? And he said, I don't pay any attention to that stuff. Now we have some video of the president of the United States, verification of one of the most blatant lies I've ever seen where he looks right into the camera and tells you, "I was just, I did some attorney work for them, that's it." This now is apparently video from during the campaign where he was meeting with who we assume were ACORN officials because he's referring to ACORN as "You," and here's how he describes his relationship with ACORN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I definitely welcome ACORN's input. You don't have to ask me about that. I'm going to call you even if you didn't ask me.

When I ran Project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, you know, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it. Once I was elected, there wasn't a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasn't right there with you. Since I've been in the United States Senate, I've been always a partner with ACORN as well. I've been fighting with ACORN, alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career.

PAT: On that, that sounds a lot like I worked with them on one issue.

GLENN: Doesn't it?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You don't even have to call me. I'll call you. I'll call you. We talked, I think it was last summer I said, warning, ACORN is going to break up and break up into several pieces. Stu, can you give me the names, please, of all of the different pieces that they are breaking up into now? They are broken up now in Massachusetts, they have broken up in California. The next one I understand is supposed to be Texas, but they are breaking up and changing names. This is what progressives always do. They change names. They don't go away.

GLENN: You don't even have to call me. I'll call you. I'll call you. We talked, I think it was last summer I said, warning, ACORN is going to break up and break up into several pieces. Stu, can you give me the names, please, of all of the different pieces that they are breaking up into now? They are broken up now in Massachusetts, they have broken up in California. The next one I understand is supposed to be Texas, but they are breaking up and changing names. This is what progressives always do. They change names. They don't go away.

Here are the names and the states that they are changing in.

STU: New York is now changing to New York Communities For Change.

GLENN: Mmm.

STU: Doesn't that just seem so wonderful?

GLENN: Oh, yes.

PAT: I feel like the change word was the theme of somebody's campaign at some point. Meanwhile the Massachusetts branch of ACORN has been named New England United for Justice.

GLENN: Mmm.

STU: Does that feel good?

PAT: Justice always feels good.

GLENN: Just know in New England United for Justice calls you, it's ACORN. Nothing is changing except the name, and they're dismantling their national membership, their national membership. That's it.

PAT: But that's all?

GLENN: But that's it.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: But that's it. So you got that going for you. And you've got the president of the United States claiming that he knows nothing about it. That's clearly untrue. It's clearly untrue and clearly a blatant lie.

STU: And there's such an interesting part of the media here where you have and the other one was the California one, by the way, Alliance for California's Community Empowerment. All these names are changing. The national organization of a big news story over the past year is dissolving because of, you know, all of the corruption that's been inside of it, and you have at the same time, it's from a congressman, right, who uncovered this video, right? Is it Darrell Issa?

GLENN: Yeah, Darrell Issa.

STU: So you have a congressman that uncovers video of a president lying about that story, yet it's still invisible in the media.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you this: How is it possible that this is invisible? How is it possible that this is invisible? Major organization, center of controversy for years dissolving, going away, same time president is exposed as a liar. This is not a small lie. This isn't trivial. This is, I have nothing to do with them, I don't really even know to, "I'm going to call you guys. I've been involved with you every step of the way. Every bit of your campaigning in Illinois, I'm with you." How is this not a lead story everywhere in America? When you think that the news is giving you the truth, think again. How is it possible if truth is what you're really looking for? How is it possible that Van Jones is now going around to schools and talking to schools? Where is that? I thought everybody was upset that he had to be driven out of politics because he was a 9/11 Truther, which was the least of my worries. The guy is a communist revolutionary. He had to be driven out of schools, but now he can go back into schools. He had to be driven out of the White House but now he can stand shoulder to shoulder with Democratic senators. How's that working? There's no intellectual honesty at all in the media. I wonder what's going to be said now about Nancy Pelosi? We have the statement from Nancy Pelosi. We'll give that to you in a second. And now we have the correction from Nancy Pelosi. Now we have Nancy Pelosi coming out and saying, oh, well, you know what? Okay, they were lying... but now that there are, there's actual evidence, now that the CIA has released evidence that she was briefed, what is she going to say now?

To win, Republicans and Tea Partiers have to expose Leftist lies and unite.

The Beckster could have done much more to expose the truth if he had done what Michelle Malkin did — report the story of ACORN whisleblower Anita MonCrief. Americans want to hear from actual witnesses.
