Barack Obama is now apparently denying his ties with Acorn. Here’s what he’s posted on the subject at his "Fight the Smears" website. These claims are contradicted by several sources, a number of which I linked to in my piece, "Inside Obama’s Acorn."
Perhaps the strongest evidence against Obama’s attempt to deny his ties to Acorn comes in an article by Toni Foulkes, a Chicago Acorn leader, and a member of Acorn’s National Association Board, in the journal Social Policy. That article appears on pages 49-52 of the combined Winter 2003-Spring 2004 issue, Vol. 34, No. 2, Vol. 34, No. 3. I provide a link to a pay-for-access page to that article in my "Inside Obama’s Acorn" piece. As I’ve just been informed by a reader, however, the journal Social Policy appears to have pulled the link to that article, rendering it inaccessible, even by purchase. You can find the apparently pulled link here.
A link to a second article also appears to have been pulled here.
Doesn't this bother any journalists in the MSM? WTF is wrong with these 'professionals'? In a single generation they have become deaf, dumb and blind and parrot the party line without question (see this ). There is enough dirt on Obama that they could follow-up on (if they weren't too busy experiencing chills running up their legs and other quasi-religious signs related to the guy); enough sleazy associations; enough participation in disreputable and anti-American organizations to make dozens of investigative journalists' careers. Yet they treat this sort of information as if it were blasphemy against their god; which must be suppressed at all costs--when they're not insisting that anyone who brings it up is a racist, that is.
Guess pursuing these stories gives them no cachet with the all-important leftist-socialist trendsetters of the "New" Democratic Party.
