Obama's community organizing with criminal outfit ACORN now loses merit: so just WHAT IS his experience?
He's passed 2 other bills.
ACORN was the organization for which he was community organizer in the 13th district in Chicago. It rakes in millions in Federal monies perportedly for the poor, but it's really a radical political agenda group. It registered 10000s of non-existent voters under such names as "Leon Spinks" and "Jive Turkey"; it truly carries on the corruption of Chicago/Daly and Obama was one of their shakedown artist INSTRUCTORS. These people are no good, they're phonies who suck YOUR hard-earned dollars and screw you out of your vote.
After his time as community organizer of the 13th district, it was as corrupt crime filled and sad as ever, after his time as State Senator of the 13th district, it was more corrupt crime-filled and sad than ever.
Other than that, Obama's passed 2 bills, one to give money to Africa and the other to rename a post office.
So just what IS his great experience other than being a con and a shakedown artist?
ACORN registered thousands of nonexistent voters in many states, including mine.
AHHH, so THAT'S the organization the Obama brags about!??? OMG
35,000 (thirty five thousand) in MI, 2,200 in WA and on and on
ACORN REGISTERS NONEXISTENT VOTERS

Maybe it is Grove Parc Illinois.
The squat brick buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who can't afford to live anywhere else.
But it's not safe to live here.
Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama's close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.

Must explain why his hometown, especially the South Side, is as dangerous as ever. The man can't clean up his own hometown, but he can "cure" a country ?
Must be why he "slipped" 18 million dollars of taxpayer money into the 2009 fed Budget, for his "pet" project, the Shed Aquarium in Chicago. Guess it didn't matter the aquarium had a surplus budget of 10 million from 2007.
And he's the man for "change" ?

"Obama was one of their shakedown artist INSTRUCTORS?"
Please! And people wonder why some choose to spread crap about McCain...
To answer your Q:
Obama has 20 years experience in public policy matters: he has roughly one year running a hugely successful voter-registration project; three years as a hands-on community organizer; four as a full-time attorney fighting for voting rights, employment and housing cases; and 12 years in the Illinois Senate and U.S. Senate. He also taught constitutional law for 12 years.

Franklin Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln had less experience than Obama and proved to be great presidents. Yet, Bush and Cheney are extremely experienced and will likely go down as the worst administration in US history.
You should study US history before posting ignorant questions like this. However, the fact that you only have 3% best answers shows that you would prefer to regurgitate Fox News than actually think for yourself.

Obama is as the saying goes the best politician money can buy, he was bought and paid for by the criminals in Chi town and has always voted as he was instructed to do. bought and paid corruption for his whole state time in office..

I think you got it. He also fought against the death penalty for gang members who commit murder. If we let him, he would open the prison doors and just sit down with the criminals and 'talk' them out of a life of crime. He thinks talking will solve the problems of the world.
But this is just like everything else he does, very questionable.

Since when has ACORN "lost merit"? You certainly don't preset any evidence of that!
In any event, Obama's work with the group 20 years ago is hardly indicative of what's going on there NOW, is it?
Another LAME attack...
