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.
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.

This is a great idea. In theory.
Problem is, the people who are interested in spreading lies are not going to be interested in what Obama's site has to say. They will claim Soros funds it or find some other reason to discredit it, just as they did with "Fight the Smears".

Obama and the word "truth" doesn't fit. I am sorry, but this will only be wasting his time. We already have people like Outkast who was probably first round pick for this so called "truth team."
Georgia Democrats say the Obama campaign is looking for 30,000 volunteers in the state. The effort is aimed at rebutting attacks on Pres. Obama's record by Republican presidential candidates. Republicans say the move is a ploy to collect mass email addresses. GPB's Sasha Horne (@sashahorne) reports.
