Democrats just can't stay away from ACORN. Even as scandal piles on top of scandal, they continue to embrace the organization. The latest is that the Senate just confirmed Patrick Corvington as chief executive of the Corporation for National and Community Service. Corvington and ACORN have quite the history as Matthew Vadum notes:

Poisonous nuts, only acceptable to vermin.
FReep mail me if you want on/off the list.
Obama has the audacity of the devil himself.
That is all democrats know....scandal. Without it, their lives are empty and incomplete.
Is this Obama’s civilian army?
Where was Scott Brown?
Is the guy now in charge of the National Service Act stuff, with its camps to train yoot 18-24 yo to be community activists?
They used a pic with Caroline Kennedy in it. The Kennedy’s are now done as a political dynasty as they gave Obama the failure liar worst president, the baton.
It passed the Senate unanimously.
Obama can and will do whatever he wants even if his immunity race card has expired. He has the stroke of the pen power.
“””It passed the Senate unanimously.””””
Change you can believe in. Thanks for putting up a fight, McConnell.
“they gave Obama the failure liar worst president, the baton”
the media are trying to play it like that, but the only evidence for that is that the Whale endorsed nobo. “Their” official biographer got really angry with Cris Matthews for suggesting it
“It passed the Senate unanimously.”
Ah. Must have been a black guy.
Ok that makes sense put I remember Teddy endorsing Obama and Caroline campaigning for him. They just about declared Obama a catholic brother at Teddy’s funeral.
The FY 2011 budget for this includes a staff increase of 85,000 to 105,000, and a monetary increase from 2010 of 1,054M to 1,298M.
But Border Patrol and the Coast Guard get cut.
“Is this Obamas civilian army?”
More like his Basij!
The new name for ACORN so they can get back their government funding, same folks, same style, new name........Congress will allow it.
They will continue to attempt to get as much money from the government as they can prior to the Mid-Terms. After the Mid-Term elections, they will most likely be cut off.
Yeah where is the MSM on reporting Obama’s formation of NACORN while the country suffers. Volunteer links on the page= are such bull volunteer because you don’t have a job and are living in your car as we all will soon be if this fool goes on.
Exactly but the question is will they steal the elections with rides to vote for Obama with a free lap top driving state to state voting for him? I don’t think they could organize for the Mass. Special election. They are organizing now for an Obama win, revolt or not.
Exactly. Whatever is our government doing with a “Corporation for National and Community Service”?
Senate has become as vile as acorn so no surprise on this....”The Enemy is within”...and spreading no doubt.
On February 1, President Obama released his Fiscal Year 2011 budget request for the Corporation for National and Community Service. The $1.4 billion request will strengthen our nations volunteer sector, foster innovation and civic engagement, and mobilize more than six million Americans to solve critical problems through national service.
see post # 28!
96 pages just for the budget request!
Isn’t this the group who will...As Bo’s wife said, “Demand we serve”...and Rahm said would “require” all citizens to perform a certain amount of “service” to the nation..even senior citizens?
More of spread the wealth and CORRUPTION.
Another 1.4 billion wasted or put in Obama’s/ Gore’s fat cats pockets.
If you go here
and read the Obamaspeak this entity was formed under getting america jobs garbage act.
Actually, no. At least not in the picture in one of the links I sent. He was part of a package of 26-27 or so nominees for varius posts, and they were passed en mass.
that’s just weird.
One way to trim the budget is cut all government workers by 10% per year.
This is the only hiring going on in our current economy. More taxpayer’s dollars going into a black hole.
from your lips to God’s ears...
Barry is the boss, he can have anyone hired that he likes.
Just 35 months to go.
Looks like they hired 135,000 people to find people work? and even pay for relocation, food, childcare, rent etc. etc. etc .
Two people I’m aware of both decided to return to school...both went to same classes and often studied together. One paid her own way...the other paid by Americorp...Both passed those classes.
status to date...the one who paid for her own classes has now gone on to get her degree and is working in the field of which those classes prepared her for. The Ameri-corp gal continues to turn down solid job offers and remains working at a retail store...excuses every opportunity offered her.
Links from this site also proved interesting.....looks like this whole thing is about hiring people to help people where there are already agencies which do this..and so 135,000 gov. jobs we’re paying these folks to do what’s already being done.....looks like they are surely up to far more than helping....
On second thought, let’s do talk about impeaching this jerk.
I have only two words for you...IMPEACH Obama!
Now this Corporation is nothing but a Dem "get out the vote" front.
I will gve themcommunity service. They do not need my tax dollars doinng it.
I'd rather have NASA than this wimp organization of socialist prigs, training our kids top be communists.
For real? Geez.
A quote from the Corporation for National and Community Service website:
The Corporations FY 2011 budget request of $1.416 billion will strengthen our nations volunteer sector, foster innovation and civic engagement, and mobilize more than six million Americans to solve critical problems through national service.
Corruption as usual. Now they just rub it in our faces knowing we can’t do dip about it. The fed.gov enablers and ACORN are immune from prosecution. Nothing else could explain their bold and overt corruption where billions of taxpayer dollars flow into their coffers.
Heck, some high court even ruled that the fed.gov had to give them the money inspite of their exposed corruption. That court offered that to not pass the taxpayer bucks would be discriminatory.
There’s a picture of him at this link:
You be the judge.
Senate confirming anyone to a “Corporation”?
