Well how about look in the mirror first? Let's see where to start? How about , Why Is Gitmo Still Open for business? Or Obama saying he would have the most transparent administration ever? Or that he would not have any lobbyists around? I guess that's enough for folks to chew on there is so much more I could say...........

I thought that was what Media Matters was doing? So does this door swing both ways or just in one direction?

During the Civil War the vast majority of those who fought for Confederacy, an anstonishing ninety percent did not own slaves. One third of them were illiterate. Today, those same regions are "red" states, with legions of followers who depend on Fox News as their only source of "truth." Good for Obama for getting the word out there to counter the ignorant noise.

"Unless we correct people, they won't know what is the truth." Ok, correct this: As of February 9, 2012 the gross debt was $15.356 trillion, of which $10.597 trillion was held by the public and $4.759 trillion was intragovernmental holdings. All is well, all is well. The rich are at fault. Don't look in the mirror - it might be discovered that your policies influenced a very large part of this mess. Tell us the truth - dare you.

Rybak used his "Obama Coordinator of the Disadvantaged Youth Summer Jobs Program" to springboard his way to the "Obama Truth Team"! Shrewd! We should create a "Vikings Stadium Truth Team" to go over some his promises. And the beat goes on...

re:Obama campaign launches its state 'truth teams'....it'll be real interesting to see Obama's version of the "truth"....like the "truth" the GM bailout was to save the economy and NOT to use U.S. taxpayer money to reward the unions for their political support.

In other words, Barry will be setting up crews to tell lies to offset the lies from the republicans. They will likely use updated versions of those lies told leading up to the 2008 election. Presidential campaigns seem to get filthier at every election, and the democrats and republicans are off to a great start to prove it true once again.

The unions took concessions, the company rebounded, the CEO's got fat and happy, profits went up as did stocks and the company is one of the most successful in the auto industry now. Yeah, that was about the unions alright. Man, you guys really do believe the crap your fed, don't you?

Using the word "truth" and "Obama" in the same sentence is amazing!
