    Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of

    As the 2012 presidential campaign heats up, President Obama’s campaign team has set up a new Web site, AttackWatch.com, to challenge negative statements about the president made by Republican presidential candidates and 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.”

    It’s safe to say that in its 24 hours of existence, Attack Watch has already backfired, 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.”

    Yeah, I would rather not see Obama do that same victim mentality that people like Palin thrive on.

    Bush at least took his hits with grace and a level of maturity.

    Bit late for you to not want Obama to play victim. But I guess you missed all that so far.

    He does it a little bit, I agree, like that spat with fox news and rush a couple years back, but it should not be a central theme of his.

    He shouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. This is a VERY bad idea playing victim like this is 2007 again.... backfire is right.

    Obama needs to understand that some will not like him, even if he can magically create the cutest kittens with out of a poof of butterflies that heal the terminally ill and be the person we elected him to be, not someone who tries to appeal to everyone and certainly not a victim. His purpose should be to heal the country, not please people.

    Obama's a member here?

    And no, it's really to identify how stupid a politician is and can continue to be.
