    McCain does not to appear to have been sponsoring ACORN.. rather pushing his bill to the public

    But even if you call it support....
    Much like when you have a friend or an acquaintance that suddenly is shown for doing something against your morals or against the law, you generally disassociate yourself with that person (unless you are Obama, that is)..

    Do I fully expect McCain to support LEGAL registration and getting as many ACTUAL people to vote? Yep.... Supporting the right for Mickey Mouse to vote in FLA or Tony Romo and T.O. to vote in Nevada? Nope... Allowing the group responsible for those registrations to continue their current practice without review? Nope

    well in that case McCain should disassociate himself from the GOP since it's been proven time and again, in court, that their efforts to disinfranchise voters is illegal.

    Trouble is, DD, there has been no voter fraud by anyone ACORN registered. And that is the reason so many Republican Attorney Generals across the country were fired by the Bush Administration...they actually had scruples and refused to play along with the bullshit being pushed by the GOP.

    This just proves McCain is more of the same tired corrupt GOP we've all come to despise. He can't be stupid enough to believe that anything ACORN did led to false votes. Well, maybe he can be, but my guess is he's just business as usual.

    And Obama should then disassociate himself with the Democratic party... for their efforts to enfranchise non-existent voters or determine intent in a subjective matter of an improperly filled out ballot?

    When a definite pattern is shown across numerous areas at many times, in terms of voter registration fraud (and yes, that has been shown), it has to put vote casting fraud into the equation as well... for the reason for registering to vote is to cast a vote... and when an organization endorsing a certain candidate is shown to have a pattern of this activity within the organization itself, it should indeed be looked into further and the validity of their efforts MUST be put into question

    There is no record that shows that Mickey Mouse voted this way or that way.... we are not going to get vote for vote election reports... so you are not going to get your 'proof' that YOU want... but the validity and the activity is rightfully under question

    You know.....with all the dirty tricks that have been done this election by McInsane and Pale-one, I wouldn't be surprised if Acorn was actually a dirty campaign trick that was done by the Repugnicans.

    They're just trying to cover up any trail to them.

    Oh it's a trick alright----disguised as an effort to get out the vote campaign. It's blatantly partisan and sole purpose is to elect a democrat.
