The truth, the whole truth and perhaps nothing but the truth about Obama can make you President, Governor Romney.

Last night Mitt Romney won a Republican presidential candidates debate, again, and made the point during the debate that America's president needs to be a person of integrity.

Good for him...and us.

But Romney opted to describe President Obama as a liberal instead of a socialist and insisted that making Obama a former president is what is really important.

Of course that's critical.

But understanding what Obama really is and how he won the presidency in 2008 is the way to make Obama a one-term president.

As stated in the King James Bible (John 8:32): "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

The truth, the whole truth and perhaps nothing but the truth about Obama can make you President, Governor Romney.

Be not afraid.

The truth is that Obama is a stealth socialist who has been doing all he can to "fundamentally transform" America.

To appreciate Obama, one needs to appreciate ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — and to truly appreciate ACORN, one needs to heed ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.

Just as Whittaker Chambers showed that Communist Alger Hiss was a liar (and a Communist), Anita has shown that Obama is a liar (and a stealth socialist).

Governor Romney, please read Anita's "Obama, ACORN and Stealth Socialism" (http://hotair.com/archives/2010/05/29/obama-acorn-and-stealth-socialism-dire-domestic-threat/) and "ACORN Zombies, Obama and Stealth Socialism" (http://emergingcorruption.com/2011/02/acorn-zombies-obama-and-stealth-socialism/.

Anita concluded:

"Ironically, Obama, 'the Senator from ACORN,' benefited from the financial crisis that his kind of thinking created with his personal help as organizer, trainer, lawyer, funder and political supporter and win the Presidency.

"That's because the truth did not catch up to the lie.

"It would have, if The New York Times had not killed the expose I was working with its reporter, Stephanie Strom, or ABC or CNN had been interested in the truth about Obama.

Before ACORN's corruption and radicalness was generally appreciated, then presidential hopeful Obama said: "I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work." (Barack Obama 2008 Website, Accessed 10/8/08)

Even The New York Times acknowledged that the Obama campaign used ACORN in its presidential campaign and concealed that fact until others discovered it (www.nytimes.com/2008/10/11/us/politics/11acorn.html).

"...Republicans had made much of an $832,598 payment made in February by the Obama campaign to Citizens Services Inc., a consulting firm affiliated with Acorn.

"'This organization is not just related to but deeply ingrained in the Acorn organization, a front group for Acorn,' Mr. Davis said.

"The Obama campaign initially reported that the payment was for 'staging, sound, lighting' and other advance work when it reported its expenditures with the Federal Election Commission. It filed amended reports in August and September to reflect that those payments were for get-out-the-vote efforts.

"Mr. Davis contended that the original filing was an effort to 'hide the fact' that money was paid to Acorn.....

"Citizens Services typically contracts with Acorn and its affiliates for work like that done for the Obama campaign. Mr. Goldberg, the Acorn spokesman, said that less than $80,000 of the Obama campaign's payment to Citizens Services went to Acorn. Jeff Robinson, executive vice president of Citizens Services, did not return a call inquiring how the rest of the money was spent."

With the election on the line, The New York Times chose to kill an Obama/ACORN expose, fearing it would be "a game changer."

As I reported on October 29, 2008 in "Why Obama and ACORN Fear Anita MonCrief" (www.webcommentary.com/php/ShowArticle.php?id=gaynorm&date=081029):

"It's not surprising that Anita left Alabama and a job with T-Mobile USA to become part of the ACORN world in October 2005. ACORN wanted Anita's skills and passion and Anita wanted to make a better world.

"Anita was hired by Project Vote as a development associate. The department in which Anita worked is the Strategic Writing and Research department of Acorn Political Operations, which serves as an internal consulting arm for Acorn Political, informally and off the record work. Anita designed ACORN's 2005, 2006 and 2007 Political Operations year end PowerPoint presentations.

"Here is a link to a 2007 story from Politico.com: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0607/4664.html. 'Addie' is Anita's baby in the story and Anita is the one on the megaphone doing the chanting. As Anita emailed me, 'I lived and breathed ACORN with every fiber of my being at the time because I thought that I was doing something to make the world better for Addie.'

"But Anita learned what ACORN really was about and Anita and ACORN had a falling out.

"Of that, there is absolutely no doubt.

'What does Anita know that ACORN does not want the public to know, especially before Election Day 2008?

"Plenty!

"Anita made the following statements (basis or bases set forth in parenthesis at end):

1. Project Vote has violated its 501(c)(3) status by using government and private grants that ultimately go directly or indirectly to ACORN (based on direct knowledge).

2. ACORN, Project Vote and Citizens Services Inc. (CSI) are essentially the same organization with different tax designations that are used to facilitate the transfer of money between them (based on direct and indirect knowledge).

3. ACORN has promoted a culture of dishonesty motivated by reaching target Voter Registration goals and senior staff have portrayed an attitude that allows for some 'bad' cards in order to reach these goals (based on direct and indirect knowledge).

4. Karyn Gillette, Project Vote Development Director, Jeff Robinson, senior Project Vote 'money man' and Nathan Henderson James, Project Vote Research and Political Director are all employed by CSI and may have worked directly with anyone seeking the services of CSI and money paid to CSI would have obvious ACORN ties (based on direct and indirect knowledge and documents).

5. Zach Polett, former Executive Director of Project Vote and former director of ACORN Political Operations mentioned that Obama had worked for us and that he even supervised him during a ACORN Political staff retreat in November 2007 (based on direct knowledge).

"Obama in the last presidential debate: 'My only involvement I've had with ACORN was I represented them alongside the U.S. Justice Department in making Illinois implement a motor voter law that helped people get registered at DMVs.'

"That's a lie, not a fact.

"Yes, Obama represented ACORN in that lawsuit and the Clinton Justice Department predictably sided with ACORN.

"But that was NOT Obama's only involvement with ACORN.

"And Obama looked into the camera during the last presidential debate and flat out lied to the American people about it (in his calm, seemingly non-threatening manner).

"ACORN is the organization with which Obama has been associated throughout his adult life, as organizer, trainer, lawyer, funder and political beneficiary...and Obama's Achilles heel.

"Anita reports revealing connections between ACORN and the Obama campaign based on personal knowledge.

"In late 2007, Anita reports, Anita received a call from the Obama campaign asking if this was the same Project Vote that Obama worked for in the 90's. With the staff retreat fresh in mind, Anita answered yes and sent an email to Zach Polett, Karyn Gillette, Nathan Henderson James, and Kevin Whelan stating that the campaign wanted someone to call them back regarding some media questions that were being asked at the time.

"In late 2007, Anita reports, Karyn Gillette approached Anita to tell her that she had direct contact with the Obama campaign and had obtained their donor lists. This meeting took place sometime in November of 2007 and may have even been a conference call between the campaign and Project Vote. Anita was given an excel spreadsheet to work with for cultivation of new donors. When Anita had trouble because of the duplicates, Karyn stated that she would contact her person at the campaign and see if they had another one.

"Anita reports that Karyn Gillette also provided lists obtained from the Kerry and Clinton campaigns, as well as the 2004 DNC donor lists, and that these lists were shared with the Political directors of roughly 12 ACORN battleground states in order to raise money for a $28 million dollar (number as of 11/2007) voter registration drive (based on direct and indirect knowledge and documents).

"Anita reports that research uncovered after the Rathke embezzlement scandal showed that persons demanded a forensic audit and suggested a well-known, credible firm to do it, but Bertha Lewis told them that the auditors came back with a contract that was 'too expensive' and that's what Dale Rathke told funders back when they were hoping Arthur Anderson would take over auditing (based on indirect knowledge and documents).

"Anita reports that ACORN and Project Vote used CCI to transfer money between the organizations and may be guilty of violating RICO statues (based on indirect knowledge and documents).

"Anita reports that Sidley Austin, Obama's old law firm, is representing ACORN pro-bono and Mesirow Financial, the firm hired to provide financial advice to ACORN, is headed by a major Obama donor, Richard Mesirow (based on indirect knowledge and documents).

"Anita also notes that questions have been raised about the shredding or destruction of documents by ACORN's own lawyers (based on documents).

"Bottom line: ACORN has been improperly coordinating with and operating as an arm of the Obama campaign, and 'the Senator from ACORN''s involvement with ACORN has been much more than his lawful representation of ACORN in the motor voter case years ago."

Enlighten the many gulled Obama supporters, Governor Romney. It's the right thing to do.
