Obama On ACORN: “What’s ACORN?”

Well, almost. When ABC’s George Stephanopolous asked Obama, “How about funding ACORN?” Obama replied:

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.

Instapundit seems to doubt Obama’s veracity here, but I don’t. After all, if the man was capable of sitting in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years (even took tape of his sermons to Harvard) without having a clue what the good reverend thought or said, why should we expect him to know that piddly little ACORN was getting “a whole lot of federal money”?

Obama, moreover, has just described himself as a “big newspaper junkie.” That no doubt means he reads the New York Times and the Washington Post. So, it’s quite understandable that he would know nothing or any scandals involving ACORN.

Say What?
