Obama 2012 launches “Truth Teams” – “Attack Watch” 3.0

Editor’s Note - The White House (Obama) re-election campaign  endured a failed program launched by the re-election team in Chicago called “Attack Watch” where we were asked to squeal on our fellow citizens that spoke any narrative in opposition to Obama.

That back-fired because many of the responses and replies were actually submitted by the conservative patriots in the country that revealed all the corruption by this administration.

Project cancelled. Now the re-election team has created yet another lame mission called “Truth Teams”.

This venture, or misadventure does precisely the same thing as “Attack Watch”, but the bigger question is who judges the responses and where do the replies go? Are we to think there is a database managed by the folks at DHS were we are tracked as subversives by use to the new NDAA law and its detention provisions?

Let’s recall what happened in Missouri when then Senator Obama was running for office in 2008. They created a Missouri “Truth Squad” to monitor the election rhetoric in that state.

Republicans — led by the Governor of Missouri and the Republican National Committee — are alleging that there is something untoward about the “Truth Squad” the Obama campaign has set up in the “Show Me” State. The problem, these Republicans say, is that these “Truth Squad” members are prosecutors and sheriffs with law enforcement powers, thus creating an atmosphere where Missourians might be afraid of being prosecuted for criticizing Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. (More here.)

Obama Campaign Launches ‘Truth Teams’

By Devin Dwyer

Yahoo/ABC News

The Obama campaign is today beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least 2 million supporters for a “grassroots communications team” they’re calling the Truth Team.

“The goal is to ensure that when Republicans attack President Obama’s record, grassroots supporterscan take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives,” the campaign said in a statement.

The teams will be first launched in 13 “swing states,” including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

The rollout also includes a social media blitz, directing supporters to three new websites: KeepingHisWord.com, which highlights Obama’s record and “promises kept”; KeepingGOPHonest.com, which highlights GOP policy positions; and  AttackWatch.com, which fact-checks claims made against Obama on the campaign trail.

“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,” deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in an email. “We’re fighting back.”

So far, the “other guys” mentioned on the three websites are almost exclusively limited to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. There is one mention of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and one mention of the pro-Republican super PAC Americans for Prosperity.

Obama organized a similar grassroots effort in 2008 - Fight the Smears - that involved more than 1 million supporters, campaign aides said.

    There is a Missouri State Ballot Challenge hearing tomorrow, on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 very early in the morning at 08:15am, in hearing room 5, in the basement of the Missouri state capitol building in Jefferson City, MO. There will be a hearing on the second attempt to force the Missouri Secretary of State to properly have vetted and certify with best evidence available, the credentials of the President and the Vice President in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. Brought by Hector Maldonado, who ran for U.S. Senate in in Missouri in 2010. More info at:

      We have written about Hector Maldonado numerous times since the debacle in 2008 where he was challenged by Claire McCaskill and others. We suspect there will be a lot more coming out about this and Andrew Breitbart promises amazing things in the vetting process that is over 4 years late. But, its never too late. Please keep us informed on what happens in Missouri!
