Acorn Probe Dropped by "The powers that be"

This according to John Conyers:

Who told House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Michigan Democrat, to lay off the radical activist group ACORN?

The 23-term congressman, who has been enamored of the aggressively partisan group for years, gave a truly odd explanation last week when he reaffirmed a May 4 statement that a probe of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) "appears unwarranted at this time."

"The powers that be decided against it," he said Wednesday, refusing to elaborate. His spokesman Jonathan Godfrey later said Mr. Conyers was referring to himself as "the powers that be." Unless you believe that "the powers that be" is a novel variation of the editorial "we," it's clear Mr. Conyers wasn't referring to himself and that somebody "got" to him.


So who is the "Powers that be"? Pelosi? Obama? some dude in a back room deciding the fate of this nation?

Just another gutless turd. If he was a representative of the people, there would be know higher power that he would bow to.

There is an agenda being implemented and there's nothing you can say that will stop it from happening before the next election cycle, even then, one has to wonder about gerrymandering and/or outright fraud given the amount of money be siphoned.
