Obama launches 'Truth Team' web campaign
The Obama campaign created the “Truth Team,” with a presence in 13 key states, and set a goal of reaching two million supporters Just another site as he has set up three others during his term long campaign.
The three websites are each centered around a single theme. Attackwatch.com, which has been running since September, is designed to push back against political attacks. Twitter has had Attackwatch up and running for some time asking, like his site, to report anyone who is attacking him. It is actually pretty entertaining to say the least.
Keepinghisword.com tries to be more positive, laying out what the president has accomplished during his first term. Must be a very short page with just one word NOTHING! And KeepingGOPhonest.com goes on the offense, linking to damaging stories about Mitt Romney and other Republicans countering the attacks Obama claims are not true about his record as President. Now that is truly hard core spin. He must live in the twilight zone.Now we have the " Truth Team" which should be called PROPAGADA INC. Like in the movie A Few Good Men, Obama " CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH" and will do anything to cover it like any good Alinsky follower would do.
I thought you might like to see the email sent out to supporters by Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter to promote the " Truth Team" entitled "sit back or fight back."
If we've learned anything from the Republican primaries, it's that this is no ordinary election.
The GOP candidates are spending a huge amount of time attacking President Obama -- no surprise. But instead of basing their attacks on our differences of opinion, they've chosen to run on claims about his record that just aren't true.
Mitt Romney says that, despite 23 consecutive months of job growth under the president's watch, he's made the recession "worse." Rick Santorum says that the Affordable Care Act, which was based in part on Republican proposals and provides millions of Americans with access to affordable, private health insurance, is a government takeover of health care. They're not acting alone: With the newfound power of outside groups, these lies can be instantly amplified with millions of dollars in special-interest ad spending.
If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president's record -- and their own -- we have two options: sit back and let these lies go unchallenged, or fight back with the truth.
We're fighting back. Today we're introducing a new resource for grassroots supporters who want to make sure that when voters go to the polls in November, they know the truth -- and you should be a part of it.
Will you sign up to be a member of the Truth Team? [Links to: http://www.barackobama.com/truth-team]
The website has three sections to reflect the team's goals: Keeping his word, where we'll communicate about President Obama's record and promises kept; Attack Watch, to fight back against false attacks on the President; and Keeping GOP Honest, where we'll debunk the Republicans' false claims about their own records.
In short, it's the grassroots communications team of the Obama 2012 campaign. We'll provide resources for you to learn everything you need to know and tools to help you share it with undecided voters in your life.
Communicating about the president's record -- and that of our opponents -- is what I do full-time. But people don't just want to hear from campaign statements or ads -- they want to hear from the family and friends they trust.
The president needs folks on board to roll up their sleeves, stand with him, and get the truth out all over the country.
So the next time you hear Mitt Romney accusing the President of "crony capitalism" or someone asking, "What has President Obama really accomplished?" you'll know what to do.
If you're ready to fight lies with the truth, sign up now:

If Obama could tell the truth in the first place just think of how much money would be saved not to mention web space.. LOL Alinsky at its finest. Propaganda Machine in full swing. So sit back and watch the spin fly.
You are right on Heron. We have talked many times how our words and their meaning have been changed to meet the desire outcome of this government. It continues as we keep listening to the story of the day, rather than see the whole picture and listen to the words very carefully. All of this is part of the bigger plan. They are so good at what they do. So was Hitler as he did the same thing. thank you for the comment.
So happy your a part of this group Heron. Your a true Patriot and totally understand what we are going through.
