Obama Fights Smears Online

The Obama campaign has launched an online tool to fight smears against the Illinois senator.

The page, which can be reached by clicking on the graphic above, lists various smear campaigns, corrects the inaccuracies and allows users to email the true story to their family, friends and associates.

Among the smears addressed are the Michelle Obama "Whitey" tape, Barack as a Muslim and the Pledge of Allegiance/hand over heart controversy.

At the top of each page is a quote from Barack:

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.
