I was really excited to hear on NPR today that Barack Obama’s campaign has decided to deal with slanderous accusations head on. They’ve put together a new site, Fight the Smears, that calls these accusations what they are: lies.
For example, the site responds to the smear that “Barack Obama Won’t Say The Pledge of Allegiance/Won’t Put His Hand Over His Heart” this way:
LIE: Barack Obama won’t say the pledge
LIE: Barack Obama won’t put his hand over this heart during the pledge of allegiance
TRUTH: View video of Barack leading The Pledge of Allegiance in the United States Senate.
It’s about time a candidate confronted such fear mongering. Check out the site to see more rumors dispelled, including those about his faith and his wife.
