Skip to comments.Obama Campaign Launches "Truth Team"
Posted on 02/13/2012 12:46:22 PM PST by lbryce
President Obama's re-election team on Monday rolled out a campaign to recruit two million supporters to help debunk attacks on the president's record and hit back at his Republican rivals.
Called the "Truth Team," the new effort will engage Obama supporters online and in person, encouraging them to communicate with undecided voters about the president's record.
"People don't just want to hear from campaign statements or ads -- they want to hear from the family and friends they trust," Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obama's deputy campaign manager, wrote in an email to supporters.
Obama for America, the president's re-election team, will announce "truth teams" in a handful of swing states today. National groups like the National Education Association and the Service Employees International Union have also signed on as partners in the effort.
The "Truth Team" website highlights the effort's three goals, each of which have their own website: AttackWatch.com will defend the president against false attacks, KeepingGOPHonest.com will fact check Republicans' claims about their own records, and KeepingHisWord.com will tout the president's record.
In 2008, more than a million people participated in Mr. Obama's similar "Fight the Smears" initiative. This year, the campaign hopes to double that number before the Democratic National Convention in the fall.
The "truth team" effort acknowledges the bitter contest expected between Mr. Obama and his 2012 opponent. Social media can be a powerful tool to help combat attacks, but it also carries some risks -- when the campaign launched AttackWatch.com last fall, conservatives largely lampooned it.
This is beyond hilarious!
This regime has mastered doublespeak, creating the illusion of truth by telling lies.
AKA “Barry’s Bull$hitters”
Where is the photo of Husein’s jack-booted thugs outside a polling place?
“People don’t just want to hear from campaign statements or ads — they want to hear from the family and friends they trust,”
Oh how I hope my sister-in-laws douchebag, liberal husband attempts to try this crap on me. I will knock his teeth right out of his head!
Our economy will suck as long as Obummer is in office.
The day after he is booted out the stock market will soar to never seen record highs and all the radio will be playing “Happy days are here again”
In a related story, several of the crack whores that congregate in downtown San Antonio have launched “Virtue Teams” to indicated who is and is not living a virtuous life.
(Funny thing is I’m more likely to believe the crack whores than I am anybody in zero’s administration.)
LOL the “Truth Team” What moron picked that name? The Bull Sh*t Squad” makes more sense
This is going to be a dirty election. Obama will use everything, including the full scope of the Federal government to maintain office. It’s going to be WWIII for whomever we nominate.
“AKA Barrys Bull$hitters”
That is a winner.
I can’t wait to enguage one of these hucksters on the street and when they call me stuipid I will give the bozo a freeking lecture on quantum mechanics or any other science related subject.
Also deconstruct thier limited view on economics as well as clear up their preconceptions to where “rights” actually come from.
They are recruiting two million people to keep track of all the lies Obama tells ? Great idea !!
Attackwatch is still active. Obama’s Ministry of Truth.
You see these jerks already. Just look at the comments section in your local paper. They send these letters to the editors that could have been written by Obamas staff. Filled with the latest talking points and lies to try and make their views seem mainstream.
Kind of makes you wonder how many of these are using government computers and paid work time to send these letters off.
“they want to hear from the family and friends they trust”
Yes, that is why I have been telling my family and friends what a calculating, manipulating, illmoral, job killing, Constitution killing, Usurper Obama really is.
I think it is working,too!
The truth team?....LMAO!!....FUBO!
That worked well ~ cooled them down a lot.
Plus, for the "guy type" truth squaders, we need to find any chillun they owe back child support for and report them to the authorities including their current location.
I wonder if they will be wearing brown shirts.
