Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of conservatives
By Elizabeth Flock

As the 2012 presidential campaign heats up, President Obama’s campaign team has set up a new Web site, AttackWatch.com, to challenge negative statements about the president made by Republican presidential candidates and conservatives.

Obama for America national field director Jeremy Bird told ABC News that the site’s goal is to offer “resources to fight back” against attacks. Mostly, that means fact checking statements from the likes of GOP presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Rick Perry and conservative commentator Glenn Beck and offering evidence to the contrary. The site is designed in bold red and black colors, and uses statements like “support the truth” and “fight the smears.”

The response to the site has been less than stellar.

On Twitter, where the Web site has an account to help Obama supporters submit evidence of “attacks” on the president using the hashtag #attackwatch, nearly every tweet about the site — mostly from conservatives — has ridiculed it.

“There's a new Twitter account making President Obama look like a creepy, authoritarian nutjob,” an Arizonan tweeted. “In less than 24 hours, Attack Watch has become the biggest campaign joke in modern history,” a contributor to conservative blog The Right Sphere wrote. The contributor linked to the following parody commercial for Attack Watch:

Tommy Christopher of Mediaite noted sarcastically of the site, “Great. Sounds like a terrific content-generating resource for right-wing bloggers, too. Everybody wins!”

While the initiative is reminiscent of a similar online effort launched during the 2008 campaign, called Fight the Smears, the intimidating design and language of the new site seems to be what’s causing a bigger ruckus.

Fight the Smears looked and felt far less scary, quoting Obama at the top of its page in a classic hope-change statement: “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.”

Attack Watch, on the other hand, uses the shorter tag­line, “Get the Truth. Fight the Smears.”

It’s safe to say that in its 24 hours of existence, Attack Watch has already backfired, becoming a tool for conservatives to use against Obama 2012. A tweet by conservative author Brad Thor summed up the critics’s argument: “Wow, not only are Obama & Co. incredibly thin-skinned, they're paranoid.”

Just search Twitter with "#AttackWatch" and select "All". They're coming in at over 1000 per hour and I can't stop laughing. Some of the best ones are:

That was you? I saw that one. Sorry, but it wasn't as funny as some of the others I saw last evening and I read a couple thousand of them. My favorite was a guy asking if it was true that Obama was writing a new book entitled, "My Struggle". For those that don't know, the German translation of that is "Mein Kampf", which is the title of Hitler's book. Other good ones included a guy stating that his dogs created a couple of shovel ready jobs in the back yard, a woman who demanded that an 8 year old girl be sent to Gitmo for operating an illegal lemonade stand without an FDA license, and someone claiming that the AttackWatch batsignal wouldn't work at night since it was run by solar energy.

I'm sensing a change in the tide over LMAObama attacks over this. Instead of vilifying or demonizing him, we're just gonna ridicule and mock him. His Presidency is over due to his ineptitude. He won't be re-elected and can't get anything passed through Congress, so you might as well put a big red nose and clown shoes on him to signify his irrelevance. He no longer matters.

What's truly funny is that the libtard media is accusing the Tea Party of being terrified of Obama's new Nazi-like "squeal on your neighbor" website. The fact is that we're laughing at it by mocking and ridiculing it without restraint. We no longer fear Obama because he is done, so we're just making fun of him to pass the time until January 20, 2013 gets here. :D

Yeah, mine definitely wasn't close to the funniest. The media is definitely confusing mocking with whining. They're translating jokes into fear for some reason.

I will openly admit that Obama's campaign was the best in 2008, and took advantage of social media and brought it to a new level. To make a gaff like this that has allowed the common man to mock the president in 140 words or less, just seems like a huge oversight or just overestimating themselves.

Even though I haven't received my brown shirt with the official "AttackWatch" swastika arm band yet, I've gladly reported myself, my Mom, my sisters, and several friends to the cause. Herman Cain even reported himself to AttackWatch last night, so I'm not alone.

How could anyone not support Obozo with slogans like these:


Attack Watch: An Obama jobs program to take the emphasis off the rest of his laughable jobs proposals.

Attack Watch: A new level of creepiness brought to you by Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.

Attack Watch: Because nothing is more American than snitching on your neighbors.

Attack Watch: Because the control freak in the White House isn't man enough to deal with criticism.

Attack Watch: Because ethics doesn't enter the picture when one is out to "fundamentally transform" America.

Attack Watch: Because intruding into the lives of US citizens is the modus operandi of the Obama Regime.

Attack Watch: If your job performance was as miserable as Obama's, you'd need a snitch machine, too.

Attack Watch: The most childish thing from The Obama White House since flag@whitehouse.gov.

Attack Watch: The latest childishly creepy initiative from Barack Obama. I can't hardly wait to see how he tops this.

Attack Watch: Because being tone deaf is only the beginning of the deficiencies in the Obama Regime.

Attack Watch: Because Dear Leader gets very cranky when people say mean things about him.

Attack Watch: Just when you think the sleaziness of the Obama Regime can't get any worse.

Attack Watch: Because even with Solyndra and LightSquared, Obama's Bad Idea quotient for the week hadn't been depleted.

Attack Watch: Because it's a lot easier to rule over people if they fear the government.

Attack Watch: Because if the facts were left to stand on their own, Obama would be laughed out of office.

Attack Watch: Because the American people don't find Barack Obama's policies creepy enough already.

Attack Watch: Because being only slightly worse than Jimmy Carter isn't enough.

Attack Watch: Because Obama prefers spinning his record to actually improving it.

Attack Watch: Because even New Yorkers are electing Republicans.

Attack Watch: Because it isn't immediately obvious why Fast & Furious was such a good idea

Attack Watch: Because American culture thrives on an environment of snitching and spying.

Attack Watch: Because cherry-picking facts can make even Obama look good.

Attack Watch: Because labeling everything "unprecedented" or "unexpected" only goes so far.

Attack Watch: Because I'mGonnaGoTellPresidentObamaWhatYouSaid.com takes too long to type.
