Attack Watch: Latest Made Up Thing For Conservatives To Whine About

Conservatives seem pathologically incapable of attacking President Obama on real issues, even when they have legitimate gripes about him or his policies. Today’s example is the GOP bitchfest over the AttackWatch website.

The site is designed for Obama supporters to send in various pieces of misinformation, lies, etc. and then have them debunked. Obama ran a similar site in the 2008 campaign called Fight The Smears.

Simple, right?

Nooooo. Conservatives are now pretending as if this is an example of Big Brother. They now claim that a web form is on par with egregious violations of civil liberties. I mean, how dare Obama solicit links via e-mail????

Obama has been president for over 2.5 years now, and conservatives/Republicans have yet to attack him with anything that is actually real. Instead we’ve got one made-up thing after another, from “apology tour” to “death panel” to a supposed lack of exceptionalism from a President who regularly extols the exceptional values of America.

It’s all very childish and nonsensical of the right, but it is just what they do.


Yeah, AttackWatch doesn’t really exist, them wingnuts just made it up. Maybe Ollie should report that to AttackWatch.

What he doesn’t seem to understand is that conservatives aren’t whining, they’re laughing their asses off.

Whether you agree with them or not, the stimulus and Obamacare are real issues. And when a sitting president creates a snitch website, it definitely raises the specter of Big Brother.

Here’s a tip, Oliver – when Obama and the Democrats get slaughtered at the ballot box next November, don’t wonder “What’s the matter with Kansas?”

How did these dumbasses ever beat Hillary?

Oh wait, I forgot – they didn’t.

UPDATE:

Hot Air:

Dead pool: How long before Obama’s campaign flushes Attack Watch down the toilet?

I say Friday afternoon – a quiet burial along with the news dump.

    Unlike us, Oliver gets invited to the White House for Koolaid and cookies.

  2. Yeah, stick to real issues. Like Wasilla library books, hunting from helicopters, seeing Russia….

    No intelligent discussion found there, was hoping the comments would suggest Team WTF rethink what they accused Bush of for 8 years, that “dirty nazi bastard”. But no-oh-oh, we feel the love here:

    If the Tea Party debate is any indication, nothing is going to change untill the bad black man is out of office.

    Right wingers here prove it everyday. Racist, lying neanderthals.

    Though I do give points for not using teabagger 😉

    You know, I was actually hoping to see some acknowledgment from some lefty blogs that attackwatch really is creepy …

    • WMCB says:

      Chris Hayes of The Nation actually admitted on twitter that if Bush had done the same, he’d have flipped out.

    • ralphb says:

      Not a chance they’ll say it, but they might think it.

      Just a counter intuitive guess but I think that Enquirer story is going to gain Sarah some voters.

    Obama raffles dinner with self for cash

    I got my invite, have you gotten yours?

    • Yup- I got one too. Like getting an invite from the creepy kid in 5th grade. I would throw it away before I got home lest my mother make me go to be polite.

    • Mimi says:

      When creeps do stuff it usually is creepy. And people are not just now noticing but are willing to say so because of the exploding unpopularity the One. Often people sublimate a sense of unease or distrust because it is not socially or culturally acceptable. Obama and his crew have always been creeps and it is now becoming acceptable to say so. The young people wearing the Sarah Palin is a (@&)$ are creeps, there is something wrong with them and it is OK to say so. Same thing with the Gestapo website.

  6. LOL- can not get into twitter at all right now- the connection keeps timing out- hope somebody got screen shots of all the fun!

  7. Oliver says..

    Conservatives seem pathologically incapable of attacking President Obama on real issues..

    That should really be..

    Obots seem pathologically incapable of attacking Hillary or Sarah on real issues…they will always defer to race-baiting and misogyny.

    LOL, attack watch is a “made up” thing? Well, then who’s the moron who made it up? That sure wasn’t very bright.

    The attackwatch tweets are still cracking me up. I like this one from “Vlad Putin”:

    @VladPutin Mr #AttackWatch Plz advising me to construction of magnificent gulag-filling website.
