Obama Assembles 2 Million For 2012 Propaganda Machine
February 15, 2012 by Sam Rolley
President Barack Obama is mounting an effort to assemble a 2 million member-strong “grassroots communications team,” dubbed the Truth Team, to carry the propaganda wing of his 2012 re-election campaign.
According to ABC News, the teams will be initially launched in 13 States considered election-season “swing States,” including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
“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.”
The effort also includes a social media focus, directing supporters to three new websites: KeepingHisWord.com, KeepingGOPHonest.com and AttackWatch.com. Most of the attacks on the site focus on Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said the project is a desperate attempt to mask the President’s failed track record.
“The Obama campaign is organizing propaganda teams to deceive voters because Americans are catching onto the reality that Obama’s record doesn’t match his rhetoric,” she said in an email. “How else will they mask the broken promises like introducing another trillion dollar deficit or the fact that the president continues to recycle the same proposals without ever seeing results?”
