“Tea Partiers March on U.S. Capital”
WASHINGTON – The capital was rocked today by a taxpayer march and rally that could be the biggest protest ever – potentially dwarfing the Million Man March and the Promise Keepers Rally.
Obama is an arrogant Fill-in-the-Blank!!
From Newsmax, posted October 26,2008 by Lowell Ponte:
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden did not tell the truth Thursday when hit with tough questions about ACORN from a veteran journalist.
“Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempt to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?” said Orlando, Fla., WFTV anchor Barbara West.
“I am not embarrassed by it,” Biden replied. “We are not tied to them. We have not paid them one single penny to register a single solitary voter . . . We register the voters ourselves, and so there is no relationship.”

The radical Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a multi-faced creature its founders spun off into about 100 separate legal entities.

Note: I tried the switchboard number given in her piece for over an hour and did not get through, only the “All circuits are currently busy….” message. I finally googled my two Senators and got both their DC and local phone numbers. Got through to Hagel’s office – no surprise, he’s voting FOR it. Still not able to get through to Nelson’s office.
Additionally, BOTH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE SAID THEY WILL VOTE FOR THIS MONSTROSITY!!
God help us all!
I’m just saying…
This is the ad that Barack Obama’s lawyers are playing hardball over. Seems the stations airing it are receiving a taste of “Chicago-style” retribution…
