Dissent Will Not Be Tolerated
Do you remember firstname.lastname@example.org. Now it has a whole website, but at least this time Obama is running the initiative through his campaign. The following is the most recent Obama campaign email to hit my inbox. While it's worth reading, the email deserves no response.
If you're someone who cares about seeing a campaign focused on substance between now and November 2012, I need you to become a part of one of our most important teams.
It's called AttackWatch.com, and it launches today.
Here's the deal: We all remember the birth certificate smear, the GOP's barrage of lies about the Affordable Care Act, and the string of other phony attacks on President Obama that we've seen over the past few years.
There are a lot of folks on the other side who are chomping at the bit to distort the President's record. It's not a question of if the next big lie will come, just when -- and what we're prepared to do about it.
AttackWatch.com is exactly what it sounds like: a resource that allows us to nip these attacks in the bud before they show up on the airwaves and in emails -- and then fight back with the truth.
By signing up, you'll be on the front lines -- you'll hear about false claims as soon as they come up, and we'll count on you to spread the truth to your friends and personal networks and let us know about new smears whenever you hear them.
Will you sign up now to be a part of AttackWatch.com?
Yes, I want to be on the team that fights back.
Not right now, but I'll donate $5 to fund the 2012 campaign and support this work.
I remember the smears from 2008 well, and I'm sure you do, too.
They didn't just attack Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They went after everything this movement is built on, and everyone who supports it.
This time, they're not just out to personally attack the President -- they're also out to mislead Americans about the record of accomplishments that he's compiled. Just the other day, a Republican financier actually quoted Saddam Hussein in telling a group of millionaire donors that defeating President Obama will be "the mother of all wars."
We're launching AttackWatch.com today to make sure we're ready for the attacks we know are coming -- and armed with the ability to fight back quickly.
