Now, if it were ‘BungleWatch’ ... (Obama campaign creates new website to report "lies" about Obama)
NY Post ^ | September 16, 2011

Posted on 09/16/2011 3:43:43 AM PDT by lowbridge

President Obama’s campaign team has trotted out AttackWatch.com, a spooky new Web site that asks followers to report “lies” being told about the president.

The apparent point is to drown out opposition to Obama and his policies by encouraging instant cyber-swarms aimed squarely at the critics.

The rollout brought much derision, with The Washington Post calling the site a full-fledged “laughingstock” within hours of its launch. Online satirist IowaHawk wrote, “I’m grateful to live in a country where the totalitarians are so hilariously inept.”

Totalitarian might be a bit over the top. Trolling for snitches, which is what AttackWatch appears to be about, is more like it.

There is the old saying......”If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”

Thin skin seems to be a bit of a problem for the potus.

AttackWatch is completely totalitarian. The plan was to get people reporting their neighbors for dissident thought.

Fortunately Obama fails at Nazism. #AttackWatch

A much more used site would be a site that reports on Obama’s lies.

The only time I ever believe Obama is when he says he is taking another vacation trip.

Obuma is delusional. He believes this is 1917, and the masses will rise up and attack the kulaks. Anachronism, anyone? What a joke.

They aren’t just looking for lies. They are looking for any attacks - true or otherwise.

They want to create responses to all attacks, and my guess is most of the lies involved here will be in the responses, not the attacks.

Figured out this AttackWatch site. The site wants to know when lies have been said about zer0. This means any democRAT speaking about zer0 has to be reported.

Only in that they were dumb enough to promote a "hashtag" that conservatives immediately jumped on to make a complete and utter mockery of the idea.

I created a Twitter account just to join in the fun.

I’d like to see a website that reports all of the lies that spew out of the mouth of Obummer, his cabinet, and the Dem-bulb Party.

They are assuming MSM and left blogs will use their responses for talking points leading up to 2012 election.

You do know that the democratic party line states, “Snitches get stitches and end up in ditches.”

Oh, please, don’t elevate Obama’s intelligence by depicting him with Gorby’s birthmark.

Gorbachev is an unrepentant communist and he would make intellectual puree of Obama in any one-on-one debate. In fact, Gorby would probably laugh in O’s face and roar, “The rightwingers are calling YOU a tyrant!? What a joke!!”

Out of a sense of duty to the Fuhrer, I immediately tipped snitch central that Amazon is selling a book by Larry Sinclair that claims that Der Fuhrer was a long standing member of a gay men’s club in Chicago’s Andersonville. You know the rest...

Anachronism, anyone?

I have often felt that Obama was living in the wrong generation. In his personal quest to revive the dreams of his father, because he, himself had such a screwed up childhood, he is turning the world into his father's social experiment, not realizing that the world now is in a different place. I do not enjoy being one of his guinea pigs.

He really is. Everything about him screams the 1960s, his parents' generation. His association with Bill Ayres (60s radical), his fondness for tired-out Franz Fanon Third-World revanchism, and his adulation of Mao are straight out of 1968.

I have often thought this and I'm glad to see someone else noticed it.
