Obama's Priorities


STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?

OBAMA: You know, if — frankly, it’s not really something I’ve followed closely. I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Both the Senate and the House have voted to cut it off.

OBAMA: You know, what I know is, is that what I saw on that video was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So you’re not committing to — to cut off the federal funding?

OBAMA: George, this is not the biggest issue facing the country. It’s not something I’m paying a lot of attention to.

My Perspective:

So Obama does not think that the ACORN matter is worth his attention. It is not the "biggest issue facing the country," so he can't spare a few moments to talk about it or even get briefed on it? Well then President Obama, may I ask you, what is the biggest issue facing the country right now? It certainly isn't the Afgan war, since you haven't devoted any time to solving the issues we face there. Maybe you didn't know we had so many people over there fighting a war. Maybe it's the healthcare "crisis," since you seem to be spending a whole lot of time on TV talking about it. But what could possibly pull you and your wife away for a day. What is so important that you need to "sacrifice" your time in order to help? what could be more important than the ACORN scandals and of course your connections with the organization (oops did I let that slip?). So what is it? oh that's right....The OLYMPICS!! ARE YOU SERIOUS!? You have the gaul to evade sensitive questions by saying that ACORN isn't the biggest issue facing America, and then hop on a plane and lobby the world to bring the Olympic Games to your home city? This is outrageous!

It is obvious that President Obama does not have his priorities in order. He doesn't think ACORN is important because if they are then that means he has to talk about them and his connections and he can't do that. Oh what a tangled web he weaves...
