    Thumbs down Obama on ACORN: 'Not Something I've Followed Closely' Won't Commit to Cut Federal Funds

    was one of the most popular topics among the questions you submitted to me for my interview with President Obama – the controversy involving ACORN.
    While the President said that ACORN "deserves to be investigated" in light of the "inappropriate" video that's gone viral, he did not endorse recent votes in Congress to cut off federal funding for the community group.

    Here’s our FULL exchange:
    STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?
    OBAMA: 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.
    STEPHANOPOULOS: Both the Senate and the House have voted to cut it off.
    OBAMA: You know, what I know is, is that what I saw on that video was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated.
    STEPHANOPOULOS: So you're not committing to -- to cut off the federal funding?
    OBAMA: George, this is not the biggest issue facing the country. It's not something I'm paying a lot of attention to.

    So that's how he handles an issue he hasn't followed closely where it doesn't involve a cop.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    He lies - again.

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
