Skip to comments.Pro-Obama hashtag backfires on Twitter (LOL LOL)

A new Twitter hashtag designed to help fight misinformation against President Obama appears to have backfired in early use on Wednesday.
President Obama's Twitter feed, which is run by his campaign staff, on Tuesday evening started promoting the new website AttackWatch.com and hashtag #AttackWatch, designed to fight misinformation against the president.
The hashtag was already in heavy rotation by Twitter users by Wednesday morning, but many users are conservatives such as columnist Michelle Malkin, who offered up her own daily column as an example of an Obama "attack."

I’m starting to see what you mean. I like to say that on the internet the truth percolates to the surface. It appears that Twitter is the truth’s high speed elevator. And when lies try to use the elevator they get splatted on the floor when it takes off.
I just reported voters in NY-9.
Technology may have undermined future tyrants.
#AttackWatch I still have friends and family I believe are not on any kind of government assistance. Where can I report names?

Congrats to the one that come up with that.
Could it be that Mr. Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing, and neither do his handlers?
I would encourage them to stop in their tracks, take a good look at themselves, and turn around and go the other way.
Barbequeing while laughing your ass off could be dangerous.
Be sure to wear your goggles and hearing protection.
We don't wanna read about ya in here on one of those Darwin threads.

Dear #AttackWatch We keep creating jobs in SC. They must be stopped. Oh wait, I forgot, youre on top of that with the Boeing deal.
And from there we could ask, how far can this administration push things before they realize U.S. troops will not fight for Obama against the citizens of their country?
What irony! Ridicule (one of Saul Alinsky's rules to disparage opponents) being used against an Alinsky disciple.
I’ve posted maybe 30 tweets since last night. My latest, “@AttackWatch I heard a rumor that Debbie Wasserman Schultz ran over someone with a shopping cart at the Publix Deli in Boca Raton #AttackWatch

OMW! That is too clever. Had to be a FReeper.

This re-affirms my saying “There is a God and he/she has one superior sense of HUMOR”..
We are now #3 on trends in the US on Twitter, keep it up!!!
I created a Twitter account just for this. My contribution so far:
@KevinKrom Kevin Krom
Is “cash for clunkers” still in operation? How much can we get trading in @BarackObama toward a President who actually works? #attackwatch
I just got request denied when I tried to follow #AttackWatch.
I think they figured out they screwed the pooch.
That's bordering on starting a Blasphemous Rumour - to think that God's got a sick sense of humor.

Watch The Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers.
The Biggest Joke On TV! (0bama logo here)
What really is going on is that the FPoBA (Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers) and his entourage believe that they are superior and that everyone is a groupie.
“Obama - I have shovels. Please send shovel-ready jobs.”
LMAO! bkmk for later
PLEASE...PLEASE KEEP THIS THREAD OPEN.
I don’t have a twitter account and maybe I should. Alot of these twitters are hilarious! I’m having such a good laugh here at work. Please keep posting of some the twitters comments.
This is making my day along with the GOP win in NY.
This is just hysterical.
Set aside some time... the thing is going viral, over 100 tweets per minute and increasing by the minute - it's hillarious.
Read all tweets here without having to join twitter:

"I'm reporting hurricane Irene. She made the seas rise and made 0bama look like a fool!"
Thank you. I’ll go on this link at home. I’m being denied here at work.
One liners are good for slinging mud,... Good, newbie. The Union goons sling baseball bats and shiite, so when the same people give us the opportunity to express the views of the American people (and the world)and is time to ridicule these semi-juvenile, Marxist, grifters and ridicule the living HELL out of them. Go back to your Communist websites and quit trying to run interference for these bastards.
