Taxpaying Americans, Catholics and conservatives are his enemies. ACORN? They’ve got a friend in Obama.

The president also reminded the group that ACORN was “smack dab in the middle” of “Project Vote,” a 1993 voter registration drive he ran in Illinois before he went to law school.

“I’ve been fighting along side ACORN on the issues you care about my entire career even before I was an elected official,” he said.

Obama continued, “Once I was elected there wasn’t a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasn’t right there with you and since I’ve been in the United States Senate, I’ve always been a partner with ACORN as well.”

Obama explained that he met many of the ACORN leaders during a meeting in Washington D.C. after Hurricane Katrina.

You know that you’ve got a friend in me, and I definitely welcome ACORN’s input, you don’t have to ask me about that,” Obama concluded. “I’m going to call you even if you didn’t ask me, because that’s how I’ve operated throughout my career.”

As Sean Higgins notes in his column today, Obama also expressed his willingness to create a program funded by the federal government to seek out and enroll all eligible Americans in the services they are entitled to.

Can’t wait until Andre Mitchell tells us this video cannot be verified.
