The Obama 4th BoS will never live this down.
More Attaaaack Waaaaatch fail via The Hill:
A new Twitter hashtag designed to help fight misinformation against President Obama appears to have backfired in early use on Wednesday.
…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.”
The website is meant to be “the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation,” according to an email from Obama’s campaign manager announcing the launch on Tuesday.
More on Obama’s laaaaaaughingstock:
Obama for America national field director Jeremy Bird told ABC News that 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 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.
Commenter Fuzzy: “Notice how WAPO’s article on this, “Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of the Internet” is NOW called “Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,” becomes laughing stock OF CONSERVATIVES”? Gee, I wonder what happened there? Luckily, we all have the original title screen grabbed, tweeted, and/or in our readers.”
Update: Readers and friends are sending their Attack Watch poster designs. Obama can finally claim success — the Hilarity Stimulus is working!
