Connolly launches truth squad, defends Obama budget

with one comment

The Obama campaign is gearing up in Virginia, enlisting a legion of elected officials to be prepared to defend the president from all attacks, wherever they may come. Today they launched the “Truth Team”.  The group will be farmed out to local reporters to counter claims made by the GOP and their candidates for president. Monday was a good day to start given the release of the president’s 2012 budget, which was roundly critized by his opponents.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Fairfax) will be one of the leaders of the Virginia Truth Team. I interviewed him today about the campaign and the president’s budget.

  1. Old news, Ryan. FairfaxUnderground.com reported on the Truth Squad last week in a thread about Gerry Connolly wanting to take federal funds away from Virginia if they did not support his GLBT bill.

    But who truths the truth squads? Ryan, in your interview Connolly claims multiple times that Obama will cut the National Debt (not the annual deficit, the debt!) by 50 percent in five years. Can we ask that NBC12 research Connolly’s claims for truthiness?
