    I'ts making headlines in various sources, and is a Presidential action that... well is getting mocked for it's ineptitude. How is that "ha ha trolling Obama"?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Hot Air has already reported Louie Gohmert to Attack Watch for his bill name-stealing stunt.

    Let me see if I understand this correctly: The same people who are ridiculing Obama are now laughing at Obama for defending himself.

    Is that about right?

    I would have ridiculed Bush just the same.

    There's no reason for the President of the US to go on a campaign of this nature. . honestly - it's just not very presidential. It's sending mixed messages and one of them is that he can dish it but he can't take it.

    Eeeeek! The AttackWatch website design is awful. I can get behind the corrective content though, i.e., TARP was enacted by GWBush, but why start yet another website that "fact checks" when you already have Factcheck.org and PolitiFact.com? Besides, as some have already pointed out, why create a website where you basically play the victim? Granted, it's not the Obama Administration submitting the content nor directly monitoring the site, but still...

    I'd take the site down...don't even think about starting over...and let the other two non-affiliated sites continue doing the fact checking, as well as, tracking his campaign promises. IMO, both do a very good job. No need to reinvent the wheel here.

    That's about right. Doesn't make much sense does it?

    Wow. How desperate Obama must be. We should all mock fact checking! Stupid people trying to correct misleading and dishonest attacks.

    Well - there are plenty of organizations and individuals outther doing exactly that. Why does he have to do it first hand? That genuinely makes me question the validity of anything he's saying.

    I think it's desperate - and desperation does not a good president make.
