Barack Obama’s “Truth Team” – the most Orwellian name for a campaign organization in recent memory – has unleashed an email this afternoon calling on its supporters to spam Facebook, Twitter, and other social media with pro-Obama propaganda during the debate. Stephanie Cutter, the deputy campaign manager for Obama, writes:
Tonight's debate will be an important moment in this election. The pundits will have a lot to say about it, but they don't have the final word -- you do.
So if you think President Obama does a good job tonight, say so. Post about it on Facebook, tweet about it, email your friends, and write about it on your Tumblr (if you're into that sort of thing). We'll have stuff on barackobama.com/debate before, during, and after the debate that will help you talk about the President's accomplishments and respond to Mitt Romney's attacks, so get online early for coverage of the whole debate. Stick around afterwards, too -- Vice President Biden will be doing an exclusive post-debate livestream with supporters on the site ….
Getting the facts out is more important than ever tonight -- make sure you have President Obama's back, and please, spread the word:
Thanks for all your help,
P.S. -- If you're on Twitter, make sure you're following me (@stefcutter) and @TruthTeam2012 for real-time updates and fact checks.
So get ready, social media, for the Obama Army!
