An ACORN Under the Matress?

So, is ACORN a nefarious left-wing organization which systematically committed voter fraud, or is it a an innocent community organization getting smeared by The Vast Right Wing Conspiracytm?

I'm not all that sure the Republicans are going to get much traction on this one. After all, the left has been crowing for nearly a decade now about how various Republican electioneering efforts "stole" the past two elections.

The trick, I suppose, is just how much evidence there is, and whether there are actual laws being broken. Unlike activists on the other side, I know both parties do absolutely everything in their power, legally or otherwise, to ensure a win for their side. It just seems that the Republicans are better at keeping just barely in-bounds. Will the Democrats prove as adept? Hard to say. If history is any guide the Republicans seem to get busted long after the score, while Democrats seem to cough the ball up long before they're anywhere near the goal line.

I think ACORN is a little of both. 20 years ago it was an innocent community org. now I think it is more of a nefarious org. The only election I know for sure that Bush stole was the 2000 one. People were just incredibly stupid in 2004, remember that is the one that I had to go to the ER with chest pain because I was so upset about his re-election. Now I just don't like any of the choices we have.

Pat - if there was any concrete proof, the Democrats would've already come forth and knocked him out of office. If there was even marginal proof, they'd still have done it. Either that or they're concerned that someone might actually dig in to their efforts and they've got more to hide.

As for re-electing him, that's still smarter than voting for Obama.

Ron, I honestly do feel smart voting for either of them. I am very concerned about McCain's health with Palin on the ticket. And I think Obama simply doesn't have the experience. I will not know who I am voting for until I pull the curtain on election day.
