The American Spectator has an article on Patrick Gaspard, one of the most powerful figures in the Obama White House. He holds the same "political affairs director" title that belonged to Karl Rove during the Bush administration. He's was a political director for SEIU (Obama's union boys) and a political director for ACORN (Obama's community organization and census takers).Last year he worked as national political director for the Obama campaign followed by a stint as associate personnel director for the Obama-Biden transition team.
Yet, here's the exchange between Obama and George Stephanopolous during a recent interview:
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.With Gaspard as his political affairs director only a fool would believe what Obama said. Read the article and ask yourself what else is the Obama administration lying about.
