CLICK HERE if you can't view the video

Last week, presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama launched a 'Truth Squad' in Missouri asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign."

When I saw this video last week on The Huffington Post, I thought it was a joke. I assumed it was an SNL type parody and I kept waiting for the punch line -- only, it never came.

In an earlier post, I told you that Obama's camp reached out to TV stations in Ohio and Pennsylvania to block the airing of a National Rifle Association ad.

With this latest move, Obama takes us closer to an Orwellian society and gives new meaning to the words 'BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.' :)

    So, let me get this straight...

    After YEARS of having Republicans ram the "Willie Horton's" and overtly racists dogma down America's throat...you have a problem with a man who has assembled a group to MAKE SURE that the truth is spoken...

    Sandra...I am one click away from not coming to this site anymore...because I don't understand the biased stance...

    It's enough happening in the entertainment world to NEVER have to bring up the election again...

  • Kymystry

    Lala ... I PROMISE you I was typing something similar ..

    This is ridiculous ...

    All Obama is trying to do is keep the election focused On the ISSUES .. not some mud slinging fear tatics ...

    Come on Auntie ...
    Give it a rest...

  • shay1

    Good Morning Kym, Lala, and the rest of fam when they log in.......

  • kwallace577

    well make that times three we were all on the same page. after i read it i had to actually go do some work then i click back and see almost my exact thoughts already expressed.

    i am seriously thinking of taking a sandrarose break until AFTER the election!!

  • kwallace577

    oh i am sorry yall forgive me. morning all my fam.

    hey kym, shay1,lala...

  • Kymystry

    Mornin .. shay ..lala... kweezy (to borrow from goat) :-)

    back to sippin my tea and smh

  • kwallace577

    me too smh. this is so crazy b.c it seems the closer we get to election day the more and more this is the forefront. not that it doesn't NEED to be, or even if we remove the fact that this is indeed a very historic time. but this is just....pointless to me. the attacks, the barbs.

    b/c this man is so focused on the issues it is not even funny. and it seems as if all of the good ones who look at the matters at hand (the democratic presidents and nominees) never got their total shine.

    most of the time i try to keep my political thoughts and feelings light on this site b/c this IS a celeb gossip outlet. but if it keeps getting shoved on me i am going to start to shove back...

  • Kymystry

    I'll be shoving as well ...

    lets keep it light with the threads ...
    why tiny looks like a cross between a Brat Doll and Miss Piggy.

    Monica and Rocko's secret engagement?

    Why Usher's concert isn't selling in large venues and he's doing mostly Hard Rock Cafe's.

    Celebs out and about...

  • Lala11_7

    GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!!!

    I hope that "Ms. Sandra" is truly acting as an Agent Provocateur regarding this election...however, with the way things are in the world today...

    The Devil dosen't NEED an advocate...

  • iyonah

    Good morning SR fam!

    I agree w/ all comments above. Sandra the Obama tear down personal campaign of yours is worse than the one you have on Bey. Some people who read this site might not fact check, and honestly believe everything that you say.

    Obama has great intentions and a plan to make this country better - do you not see that???

  • mizzdallas

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Agreed ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Obama is trying to run a somewhat clean and focus campaign and just focus on the issues...

    GM! SR FAMILY!

  • mizzdallas

    Kym your b-day is friday what are you doing? And oh yeah everybody please tune this friday to watch the season premiere of "The Game"

  • Kymystry

    MizzDallas .. I don't know... My son plays high school football .. so you know .. Friday is a game .. and sat is the schools homecoming...

    and I've never watched one episode of "The Game"

  • kalvonel

    Usually the truth doesn't need defending. But in the world where lies and halftruths are running rapid throughout the media, I think Obama is being SMART by taking an active roll in making sure the truth about him is delivered to the people. We clearly can't depend on Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC or even the BBC to stay focussed on the real issues. What bothers me most Sandra, is that McCain literally GIVES the media things that should be exposed, i.e. - the man said that he would FREEZE SPENDING excluding funding the war and V.A. (and something else war related) due to this proposed bailout. Why not post and discuss such topics instead of all the hate and fear mongering? I understand this is your blog and all, but to be frank, the difference between the lobbyist media and this site is starting to fade.

  • lovezoe

    I came to this site for entertainment, we should not influence our decisions on what SR writes, I just scroll past these election posts, a blog is not where I go to get my information on politics.

  • nathandetroit20

    WOW...an "Orwellian Society" ???? What an idiotic statement.....after the last two elections...were peoples votes actutally didn't count....because of "swiftboating" (I'm sure you have no idea what that is....but look it up in wikipedia....like you did "Orwellian Society")....anybody running for President would be crazy not to make sure their message is translated...correctly....!! Look what you've done here on this blog...you've translated several Obama articles with a slant...to make them seem different that the intent....!! Step up your Politcal Game...you have no idea what you're talking about.....!!

  • MRSJONESK

    Good morning all,
    Thanks MizzDallas. I will certainly tune in. I've been waiting to see what will come of Derwin and his boo.

    SMH @ Sandra. I have to agree with the others. Let's just wait to see what the election results bring in November.

  • MRSJONESK

    Sandra why don't you continue to bring us a "Medical Minute" post. I find those pretty useful and educational.

  • http://MYSPACE.COM/ERIKAMAGALY hermosa

    I think Sandra is one of those people that think Obama is the Anti-Christ! LOL!!!

  • Mississippi16

    I've said it before and I'll say it again...

    If Michelle Obama had big as tattoos covering her arm and a new Louis V every week, her husband may receive more love on this site.

    They would be "relevant" then.

  • Mississippi16

    correction...
    big azz tattoos

  • MRSJONESK

    Yeah Sandra, whats with the I-don't-like-Obama attitude? What has he done to put such a sour taste in your mouth?

    You have got to get some psychological help. Your basically saying that if someone lies on Obama he should sit back and do NOTHING.

    My perception of the ads is that they are true but not favorable to the opinion that obama wants for himself so he is trying to censor them and those who would put them out there. Perhaps not 100% Orwellian but where still unethical

    I don't know about Obama, but CNN already has a truth segment. Everyday they research claims made by each campaign against the other. McCain's campaign tells the most outright lies, both campaigns have their fair share of "kinda truths" or true but misleading and Obama is more likely to be completely truthful in his ads.

  • Jahvonna

    WOW, you know I like Obama, but when he first came out there was something about him that rubbed me the wrong way...antichrist (well, I just don't know). Read the Bible in Daniel Chapter 7 and Revelation....before I get too serious I will add a little humor...what if CHANGE stood for Come Help A Negro Get Elected??????Please laugh and don't get upset. Happiness and love is the key.

  • starr

    I agree with wat everyone said already.....so no need to say no more.

  • Jahvonna

    @Sandra

    I like you because you dare to be different....ain't nobody leaving your site. Type and the people shall read. Most people who go against the General Public are the ones who are wise and not asleep. Look at Noah, Jesus, Malcolm X, and the list goes on. All those people went against the GP and everybody thought they were crazy-unitl the Real Truth came out.

    So when they put out ads that say Obama wants to teach little kids sexed it's ok?? When he actually voted to pass a bill to teach kids how to avoid sexual predators.

  • Mississippi16

    Or McCain keep telling the senior citizens on fixed incomes that Obama is going to take their money when in truth, their tax breaks will have give them an increase in money.

    Fear tactics that are used on the elderly that don't investigate on the internet.

  • Mississippi16

    correction...
    will give them an increanse in money.

  • terika83

    Uhhh, NO he doesn't Sandra...he leads us closer to a more truthful media outlet. What's wrong with only wanting the TRUTH to be told about you? As you know the Republicans play dirty...whatever Sandra.

  • kalvonel

    like lovezoe, I too view this site mainly for entertainment. It's the "one-sidedness" thats bothersome. To be fair, at least Sandra incites us to open discussions. We're all intelligent adults that clearly don't just take people at their word. I for one find that reason enough to visit SR regularly.

  • missnee

    Sandra, we respect your right to say whatever it is you want no matter how bat shit insane it is :)

    I think the frustrating part about it for some of us is you only give half of the story and not the whole thing. Like I said, you are welcome to be as bias as you want on your site, but you know what kind of reaction you're gonna get when you put this mess up.

    We still love you though!
