Obama ‘Attack Watch’ website backfires on campaign

Someone in the Obama campaign team thought it would be a good idea to create a way to collect negative comments made about the president and to challenge them.

So someone created the website, AttackWatch.com,  complete with a Third Reich color scheme and a form to report those who are making “attacks.”

They didn’t count on the response.

On Twitter, the hastag #AttackWatch is overrun with reports, but not the kind the Obama campaign was hoping for. This tweet by thorninaz has been retweeted by hundreds of other users: “Hey #attackwatch , I saw 6 ATM’s in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!”

Now Misfit Politics has created a parody video of the site.
