GLENN: I can't ‑‑ I mean, I can't believe this. You want to talk about repeating the Wilson administration, the Obama campaign today is beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least two million supporters for a grassroots communications team they're calling the Truth Team. The goal is to ensure that when the Republicans attack President Obama's record, grassroots supporters can take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives. The teams will be launched in thirteen swing states including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia. The rollout includes a social media blitz directing supporters to three new websites, KeepingHisWord.com, keepingGOPhonest.com, and attackwatch.com. If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president's record ‑‑ oh, my gosh ‑‑ and their own we have two options: Sit back and let these lies go unchallenged or fight back with the truth, says the Obama deputy campaign manager. So we're going to fight back. So far the other guys mentioned on the three websites almost exclusively are limited to Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and then one ‑‑ then one mention of Americans For Prosperity.
Obama organized a similar grassroots effort in 2008, fight the smears that involve more than one million supporters. Two million.
So they're going to have two million zombies. If you can remember ‑‑ because I can't. Does anybody remember when we talked about the Wilson administration and they hired ‑‑ and I think it was a number, about two million. They had these guys go around and they would start these spontaneous soapbox, you know, get off your soapbox. They would go around and they would start talking about Wilson and the League of Nations and everything else. And they were goons. And if you wouldn't shut up, they would beat you down. They did that in conjunction with, See Something, Say Something. And they would report people for political reasons and those people would be scooped up.
We're going down the same path. I mean, not that the president would ever want to scoop American citizens up or, you know, would pass any kind of laws or anything that would just scoop American citizens up and ‑‑ whoa, wait a minute. What is it, Stu?
STU: I'm trying to figure out. Is it the Committee on Public Information?
GLENN: Might have been. I don't remember what it ‑‑ I'll have to look it up again. It's been a while since I've ‑‑ oh. I tell you, the things that are coming are disturbing, are really disturbing. But so are the good things that are coming. The good things are, as bad as things are going to get, good is going to be amazing. Miracles are about to happen, and you're not alone. And make sure you're with me a week from today. Just make sure. Whatever you have to do, write on your calendar, whatever you have to do, make sure you're with me a week from today because I have some things to announce and tell you about that I think you're going to find fascinating, especially when you hear how they all came together and exciting because it shows you a glimpse of the future.
