Obama for America launches "Truth Teams"

The Florida branch of Obama for America today announced the launch of its "Truth Teams," which Democratic leaders say were formed to combat lies about President Barack Obama put forth by Republicans during the 2012 campaign.

Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith said the teams would refute negative adds about Obama, but do not aim to pour more poison into the political atmosphere.

"You can't let things go unanswered, you have to respond," said Smith, standing alongside Rep. Darren Soto, Orlando-D, Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, and Rep. Alan Williams, D-Tallahassee.

Soto said one aim is to make sure people don't believe the Republican mantra that the economy is still in the dumps.

"We are moving in the right direction," he said.

In other White House news: After recently channeling his inner Al Green, I wonder what Barack has in store for Michelle on Valentine’s Day. Perhaps he’ll re-enact that Bette Davis double cigarette scene? Or give Michelle a tour of his Super PAC? Perhaps invite the Bidens and Gingriches over to the White House for a swinging “Dolley Madison Night”? Unfortunately, not everyone in political circles will have this array of romantic options, as portrayed in this funny YouTube video about "Obama's Secret Service." Enjoy: http://tinyurl.com/6sevqsj
