Obama Campaign Launches 'Truth Teams'
ABC News ^ | February 13, 2012 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 02/13/2012 10:46:55 AM PST by thouworm

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 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.

Mitt Romney downplays our economic recovery

Mitt Romney downplays our economic recoveryRead More

Ever since the news broke last Friday that our economy added 257,000 new private-sector jobs in January, Mitt Romney has been grasping for a way to morph the positive news about our economic recovery into something that will benefit him politically. In his Nevada caucus speech this weekend, Romney said:

“[H]e’s been trying to take a bow for 8.3 percent unemployment. Not so fast, Mr. President ... We welcome any good news on the jobs front, but it is thanks to the innovation of the American people in the private sector, not to you.”

Far from taking “a bow,” President Obama has been clear about the fact that we still have a long road ahead of us. When President Obama took office in January 2009, we were shedding nearly 800,000 jobs a month. His immediate, decisive action to stop the bleeding reversed the trend. We’ve now seen 23 straight months of private-sector job growth, creating a total of 3.7 million jobs.
Mitt’s new stance on “religious liberty”

Yesterday morning, Mitt Romney’s campaign unveiled a new petition asking supporters to “Stand for religious liberty.” Here’s the opening line: “The Obama administration is at it again. They are now using Obamacare to impose a secular vision on Americans who believe that they should not have their religious freedom taken away.”

The “attack on liberty” claim comes from the provision that requires most employers that employ and serve people of many faiths to be included in the new law, including religiously affiliated organizations like hospitals and universities. But the petition doesn’t take the time to explain that the reasoning behind this is that women of all faiths are employed by these organizations and should have equal access to contraception.

Normally there’s a difference between truth and fantasy.

Normally there’s a difference between truth and propaganda.

Normally there’s a difference between truth and statements that require 8 or 9 disclaimers.

Normally there’s a difference between truth and having to carefully parse or interpret what was said.

Normally there’s a difference between truth and... liberals.

Sam Adams has a famous quote these clowns ought to consider; that facts are stubborn things. Would suggest that Obama’s propagandists consider the rest of Sam’s famous quote. They can not erase what has been done, Barry’s failings are well documented.

A wisdom book declares, "You shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free." Note that the word "truth" is equated with "freedom."

What irony that the Administration chooses such a term for its tactic to assure its assumptions of tyrannical government power over individuals.

In the current challenge to its power, focus on the fact that this is not about the Trojan Horses of "women's health" or "contraception."

It's not even limited to the principle of religious liberty or freedom of speech.

It is about an unconstitutional assumption of power over rights which "the People" withheld from the purview of the government they structured through their Constitution. If this arrogation of power to the Executive is allowed to stand in this case, then all of "the People's" rights are at risk.

Inasmuch as their Constitution allowed no power to infringe on any specified right in the First Amendment, then the person who assumes such a power also does not possess a power to "compromise," or "accomodate."

May I suggest that readers of this thread read Leonard Read's "Anything That's Peaceful" and share this wonderful and easy-to-read book with as many people as you can.

Not only does Read provide insight into the ideas of liberty versus those of tyranny (as in socialism), but his Chapter 5, entitled, "How Socialism Harms the Individual" is especially enlightening for any who may not see what is happening in America in its proper context, as pertains to the individuals involved.

In Chapter 5, under the heading "The Authoritarian," he begins by stating, "Of the threee classifications of persons involved in social leveling by compulsion, the authoritarian--the one who administers the taking and the giving--has been too little diagnosed." When you read it, you will see the nature of the man before us today. This section of Chapter 5 paints a portrait most Americans will recognize.

Today, he’s in the capital he claims to loathe, holding a high-dollar “policy roundtable” with some of the very lobbyists and industry insiders he’s been railing against.

Thank you! I thought the title “KeepingHisWord” was absolutely the creepiest thing about this.

We used to joke that Obama thought he was the messiah, but it looks like it’s no joke anymore. (Personally, I think that’s why he’s taken on the Church and is trying to assert his authority over it.)
