Washington Examiner: In a previously unreleased video footage recently obtained by the Washington Examiner, candidate Barack Obama is featured in a 2007 interview with ACORN, while he was seeking the organization’s endorsement during his campaign for president.
During the interview, Obama reminded the group that he believed in ACORN’s mission and been a loyal partner with the organization his entire career.
“I came out of an organizing grassroots background, that’s what I did three and a half years before I went to law school. That’s the reason I moved to Chicago, is to organize.” Obama stated. “This is something that I know personally.”
Obama continued to talk about the values of ACORN, reminding them that he was “trained” in the values of grassroots organizing while he was a community organizer.
“[T]hat’s been my bias throughout my career, that’s what I’ve always stood for and that’s what I’ve always believed in,” he said.
