Obama re-elect launches new online initiative

(CNN) - President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is launching what it calls a "Truth Team" to promote the president's achievements by responding to attacks on his record by Republicans and holding the eventual GOP presidential nominee accountable.

The "Truth Team" will consist of three websites, KeepingHisWord.com, Keeping GOPHonest.com and AttackWatch.com, which will live at the re-election team's main website, BarackObama.com.

The launch seems similar to the "Fight the Smears" initiative started by then-Sen. Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.

    Keeping them honest is an impossible task. Preventing lies from influencing voters is of great importance. I think it would be good to keep track of Mitt Romney's lies, which are occuring on a daily basis. The man is neither honest nor genuine.

    I will do all I can to assure that Obama is defeated, in November. He is the biggest disaster since Jimmy Carter, and is indeed, even worse than Carter was.

    The word TRUTH is not in republican vocabulary. The President can say the sky is blue and the GOP will say it's not.

    Good, it's about time he started defending his record. Nothing irks me more than when ignorant GOP'ers try to tout that Obama has done "nothing" while in office. Of course then they turn around and say he's "ruining" our country with his policies. HUH? People, he not only stopped, but turned around what could have been the greatest depression in our history! Such short memories, I swear. All they care about is getting their "guy" into office – the truth be darned. It's sick and disappointing.

    There are 2 incumbents this election:

    One incumbent is actually in the whitehouse with an actual list of real positive accomplishments the other incumbent is the creation of the right wing machine that created this narrative from birth of a person born in Kenya. If you look at the Kenyan's list of accomplishments, they can be beaten by a weak candidate on the right (pick one), the incumbent actually in the whitehouse has a list that can't be beaten by a weak candidate on the right. Unfortunately for them, unlike the 80s, we have a thing called Youtube, and that doesn't favor the right this cycle.
