The Presidential campaign for Senator Barack Obama has changed the way the internet is used for fund raising and information dissemination. Throughout the campaign his opponents have attempted stay up to speed and have tried to paint Senator Obama with their own brush. Senator Obama and his staff have brilliantly stayed off the attempts to smear and denigrate his beliefs. The latests addition to the My.BarackObama.com website is a site called “Fight the Smears”.

The site promises this: “What you won’t hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon–that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans first. We are always Americans first.” -Barack Obama, June 3, 2008-

Each time a smear is noted by someone on the internet they are to forward the information on to this watchdog site. The smears and false statements will be addressed directly and quickly. Here are a few of the Smears already out there in the spider web and each is taken on directly and forcefully. Please read on…
