Richard E. Coyote The bumbling paranoia of the Obama re-election campaign.
wsj ^ | 9/14/11 | JAMES TARANTO

Posted on 09/14/2011 2:51:35 PM PDT by Nachum

"The Obama campaign is launching a new website to handle misinformation against President Obama," reports the Hill. "In an email, Obama's reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina, announced the formation of AttackWatch.com":

"Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won't be easy," Messina wrote in a fundraising email to campaign supporters. "Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable."

The site features ominous red-white-and-black graphics and a form called "Report an attack." There's also a Facebook page, which we're told is a parody, but who can tell? The whole thing is both creepily paranoid and bumblingly buffoonish, as if produced by a chimera of Richard M. Nixon and Wile E. Coyote.

And the site's substance is no less marvelously mockable than its style. The "News Feed" page rebuts three "smears" by linking to exceedingly weak left-liberal defenses.

• "Glenn Beck Twists the Facts on Israel." Apparently the Obama campaign is still watching Beck's show on Fox News Channel, even though its last episode aired June 30. AttackWatch.com links to a MediaMutters.org clip of the May 19 program, in which Beck says Obama has "betrayed our last strong ally."

Obviously Obama’s new chief of staff, Daily, can not herd these WH cats off a freeway. Look for him to probably resign. Soon.

I'm going to log into that site and complain that I heard a rumor that Michelle farts in the bathtub.

Maybe they'll take my bait and try to dispute it.

All the websites in the world will not cover for the fact that Obama is a total failure. Even many people that voted for Obama are realizing the mistake they made.
In truth this website will hurt Obama and the Democrats more then it will help. When people know something to be the truth they hate to be told they are wrong, especially by the Government.

Have to wonder if whoever came up with idea of attackwatch is really a Repub hiding out in O's camp. Or someone from the Tea Party.

If they weren't paranoid enough already, the thought of a Repub hiding in their midst should make them really nuts.

This AttackWatch thing is quickly backfiring on Obummer. I wonder what idiot obamabot dreamed up this farce. Check out all the people ridiculing Dear Leader at the Twitter page. You don't even need an account to view.

Results for AttackWatch

Good luck. Twitter isn't loading. This attack site has become a laughing stock. WAPO has an article out on how conservatives have overwhelmingly used Twitter to make jokes about the administration. Since about 4:20 PM Central Twitter can't be brought up. Conservative responses to AttackWatch.com may have brought it down.

There is something eerily Nixonian about this.

I wonder if there are any adults left in the Dem party. It’s like they’ve been taken over by schoolyard bullies and bitchy schoolgirls.

Well, this was certainly “unexpected”.

This is more fun than Obama winning the Nobel prize.
