Obama ‘Attack Watch’ Website to Help Supporters ‘Fight Back’

By Devin Dwyer

Sep 13, 2011 6:21pm

It’s not easy being an Obama for America volunteer, especially when you feel ill-equipped to respond to the waves of attacks from his critics, says Jennifer Kickliter, a Tennessee college student who’s signed up for the 2012 campaign.

“What do I tell people who point out that the Affordable Care Act isn’t helping people, and that the ”don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal was accompanied by a court order Obama plans to fight?” she said in July during an online chat with several Obama campaign aides at Chicago headquarters.

“It’s great to say ‘talk about his accomplishments,’ but we need to be able to address people’s legitimate concerns, too,” she said.

Now, Kickliter, and other Obama supporters like her, could get some help in the new campaign-sponsored website AttackWatch.com.

Obama for America national field director Jeremy Bird said the site offers “new resources to fight back,” including policy issue pages that fact check statements by Obama’s Republican opponents with links to “evidence” to back them up. Its slogan is “Get the facts. Fight the smears.”

Fellow Americans?

The enemy?

Accomplishments?
Well, doesn’t being the first low-reflectivity president count?

Well, I’m in trouble.

I guess I need to go to AttackWatch and report myself everytime I say something bad about Obama, which is usually several times a day.

In fact, I think we need to overwhelm the site with our confessions.

Well, Jennifer, you do what any other self-respecting libtard does. You stand on your head and tell the rest of the world that its upside down.

Notice how sympathetically and supportively this article is written?
Keep carrying that water, media.
It’s turning to lead.

"It’s great to say ‘talk about his accomplishments, ..."

Let me finish this for her: "..., but defending his supposed accomplishments against reason and facts is impossible."

The color scheme on the website seems to have been selected to support the paranoid dictator impression. One almost hopes a GOP mole in Obama’s organization is responsible, but I suspect the Obamaites are really that stupid.

” This makes Obama look like a paranoid dictator. “

Bingo. Right on the money. Bullseye, you win the silver dollar.

Went to the Attack.Com webpage and then clicked on a "Find Out More" button.
It defines the "attack" and the "attacker" - but I noticed how the word Attack is bathed in red, and is positioned over the "attacker's" image which is shaded in red.
Gee, what a coincidence ...
Example

Apparently, Obama shut down his creepy website.

“The link “attackwatch.com” may be misspelled.
DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken”

Those comments are hysterical...

Is this the level that the presidency has sunk to?

Seriously?

If someone says something bad about Obama we are supposed to report it to him?

Pitiful.....

DUH my legitimate concern is how does any American believe that Obama has any accomplishments!

They’d better worry more about teaching them to defend themselves because not everyone is join to be happy there is someone responsible for Obama on their porch!

Thanks for the live link - but, when you go to the site take a minute and read the absolutely orwellian terms of service and privacy policies. If you submit a report under the posted terms of service you are now an Obama volunteer and they have rights to use your personal information including photos (think facebook, pinterest etc, folks)in the campaign. Privacy policy is anything but. Cookies and bots galore.
