Georgia “Truth Teams” will combat the GOP

The Democratic Party of Georgia, in conjunction with Obama for America, will promote the President’s achievements, respond to attacks on his record and hold the Republican nominee accountable.

To further these goals, we announce the Truth Team, a new national effort to reach two million grassroots supporters and over 30,000 Georgians. Be a part of the Truth Team and help spread the facts about the President’s record- and respond to the inevitable and baseless Republican attacks.

The program will be housed at BarackObama.com/TruthTeam, with individual websites – KeepingHisWord.comKeepingGOPHonest.com, and AttackWatch.com – serving as quick, comprehensive resources to help set the record straight. Designed to put responsibility for spreading the truth in the hands of the President’s supporters, the websites contain videos and information on the President’s record, and fact checks on the GOP claims about the President and themselves.

The Republican candidates are spending a huge amount of time attacking President Obama, which is no surprise. Instead of basing their attacks on our differences of opinion, they have chosen to run on false claims about his record.

We’ve had 23 consecutive months of job growth under the President’s watch, but Mitt Romney says he’s made the recession “worse.” Rick Santorum says that the President’s health reform, which was based on Republican proposals and expands access only to private insurance, is a government takeover of health care.

While the newfound power of outside groups and Republican Super PACs, any untruth cam be amplified and exaggerated with the help of millions and millions of dollars.

However, the Obama for America campaign has relied on grassroots supporters to spread the truth, and the Truth Teams in Georgia will build on and expand this effort to make sure that when voters go to the polls in November, they know the truth.

Be a part of our movement. Join the Truth Team today.
