Item #1 of 2 THEBLAZE.COM – A Texas man’s pregnant wife made it clear she was against having a firearm in their house. However, the husband insisted she learn how to use a gun to protect herself just in case. In fact, it was just a few months ago that he took her out to […]
Watchwoman: Hitler taught children to report their parents to their teachers who forwarded the quips onto the Gestapo (Secret Police, the SS) if they said anything negative about him or the way in which he governed or said anything derogatory about any aspect of the entire Nazi Evil Empire and then those reported simply disappeared into the abyss of the Nazi Concentration Camps and were subjected to tortures unimaginable and death. When I first heard of this many years ago, I was appalled. If you’re younger, you probably don’t know a thing about this because I’m confident your public government re-education brainwashing center never taught you this. And here it is 2011. Now it seems that Obama is not only recruiting youngsters, but every American to report, like his own personal spy army (Minions of Obama) on every other American. In the book, “1984,” we read about this. And here it is – 2011 — and we have it– White House or Watch House or Paranoid House? Read a tweet by conservative author Brad Thor who summed up the critics’s argument: “Wow, not only are Obama & Co. incredibly thin-skinned, they’re paranoid.” ▬ Donna Calvin

Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of conservatives
Obama for America national field director Jeremy Bird told ABC Newsthat 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:
See the paradody commercial!
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 biggest campaign joke, 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.”
Update, Wednesday, 5:11 p.m.
Obama 2012’s press office just returned an earlier request for comment. According to deputy press secretary Katie Hogan, 100,000 people signed up for the site in the first 24 hours.
“This site is a tool providing our supporters with the facts they need to fight back against lies and distortions about the President’s record,” Hogan said.
