Obama Campaign Launches ‘Truth Teams’

gee, where have we seen this kinda thing before??? One has to ask if the "truth teams" will be followed by the "Re-education Camps"??







Fans and critics alike may get a kick out of the Obama reelection campaign’s decision to launch a “Truth Team” to fend off expected attacks on the President’s record. The campaign explains:





“The Truth Team is a network of supporters of President Obama who are committed to responding to unfounded attacks and defending the President’s record. When you’re faced with someone who misrepresents the truth, you can find all the facts you need right here—along with ways to share the message with whoever needs to hear it.”



ABC News reports the campaign is looking to “enlist” and “educate” nearly 2 million people for the team.



The Truth Team webpage features a blog with references to three outlets “AttackWatch,” KeepingGOPHonest,“ and ”KeepingHisWord.”





“Every time a baseless attack comes to light, we’ll arm you with the truth so you can spread the word.”



Attack Watch — launched last fall — includes a Politifact-like blog putting a quote next to a truth team answer, which includes no citations, “Attack Files,” as well as pages to “Report an Attack” or “Spread the Word.“ Some recent Attack Watch blog posts include ”Mitt Romney downplays our economic recovery,“ ”Debunking the so-called ‘War on Religion’,“ and ”Romney’s favorite Medicare lie.”







A press release for the campaign watchdog launch explains that the grassroots organization is aiming to double the number of supporters who took part in the Fight the Smears initiative during the 2008 campaign and fight back attacks on the President’s record before the Democratic National Convention this fall.



Truth Teams will be announced in swing states like Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina and Wisconsin, with events being held in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.



National supporters for the organization include the National Education Association, Service Employees International Union, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union and the United Steelworkers Union.

  • : "a network of supporters of President Obama"


    People still support this douchebag? Most of my American friends who voted for him realized the error of their ways years ago.

  • I'm not concerned. I'm counting on the majority of Americans to know by now what a complete loser this bag of shit turned out to be.
    I have to believe a healthy measure of first-round idiots have been paying attention for the last three years and aren't nearly as brain-dead as the dumbasses who still stand by their turd.

    Far as I'm concerned, this won't do shit for anyone but the Obama bobbleheads.
    Jesus....this guy is SUCH a sophomore...

  • Well his Truth Team could earn some great credibility if they told the American people the true unemployment figures instead of the 'seasonally adjusted but the average citizen is too stupid to realize the difference' figure they been championing for the past week or so.

    But that probably wouldn't sit too well with Team Barry lol

  • Too bad this is a govt. endeavor. For i have to say the amount of disinformation from all sides, at any level, is quite astounding.

    There should be a civilian coalition with people of different political and philosophical views, which review news articles, videos and what not for accuracy and validity. It needs to have people with diverging views, so to ensure that there is no bias.

    Like most people, I do enjoy when I'm right. But, I don't want my views and opinions to be backed by half-truths More..

  • How can the so called truth teams defend trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see which will eventually collapse the dollar. Oh I know - by lies like the current proposed budget.
