McCain has recently dissed Obama for ties to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – better known as ACORN – that infamous group that is now being scapegoated for all the ills in the United States. Mortgage failures? ACORN. Investment firm failures? ACORN. Voter registration fraud? ACORN? Global warming? ACORN. Collapsing bridges? ACORN. You get the idea.
But what a surprise to learn that McCain – the nut basher – just two years ago was the key-note speaker at an ACORN sponsored event. He stood in front of a crowd containing dozens of red-shirted ACORN members and told them, “What makes America special is what’s in this room tonight.”
Me thinks he must have changed his mind. The convenience of waving the fear flag of voter fraud and scapegoating ACORN proved too much. McCain has turned on ACORN because of simple political expediency. Where did that loving feeling go?
