    It's not Obama so much that's gonna get them in hot water. Most of America still supports him. It's the congress and senate that the people are having problems with (Obama hater's notwithstanding.)

    Yeah, the demo's are going to go down big if they continue to ignore the will of the people. however, Obama so far has lost his approval faster than any other President in history to date. I read an article somewhere where it showed that he was also among the most divisive to date. This IMHO, doesn't bode well for him in this era of growing distrust of Government.

    So Stan Dai fancies himself as some kind of 'Intelligence Expert'.

    Welcome to the real world Mr. Dai. This ain't like a game of paintball, where you can clean up and go home. They play for keeps up here - I guess the misguided young man needed a little more undergraduate preparation...LOL...

    Reagan also lost his approval numbers this quickly.

    But an exhaustive report recently released by the Congressional Research Service -- a nonpartisan branch of Congress -- exonerated ACORN, finding no incidents where the organization broke any laws or misspent any federal funds.


    ACORN exonerated? - Roanoke.com

    These activists were a dangerous group of people that believed the ends justified the means regardless of how illegal it was. It might play well on prime time fiction series like White Collar or Burn Notice but in the real world it's frowned upon, and thank God it is. I hope they have plenty of time to think about their stupidity in jail.
    I'm no expert on the legality of what they did, but even if it's legal, it's horrifying to think that the federal government was giving financial support to an organization that offered to assist in human trafficking.

    IIRC, they only went to 7 ACORN offices and at 4 of them they found at least one person willing to help.

He is being prosecuted... err, I mean persecuted, by his enemies, the same way the Watergate burglars, were prosecuted... err, I mean persecuted. It's just not fair.

    Seriously, the man is not a messenger. He is a criminal.
    I have no problem with him being prosecuted, but that doesn't make ACORN any less guilty.

    Is what happened at ACORN prosecutable?

    You've got it backwards. People were claiming that this made ACORN innocent.

    Reagan had 51% approval when he took office. In the 4th quarter of his presidency, he averaged 51%.

    Obama had 68% approval when he took office. In the 4th quarter of his presidency, he averaged 51%.
