Obama site Attack Watch wants Democrats to "Tattle" on the right-wing

Obama for America launches and Orwellian style site called “AttachWatch” to alert the Campaign of right-wing “smears”.  What it is really doing is gathering information to launch oppositional research  and attacks on the individuals who post information adverse to the President.

The Conservative Blogosphere has used the opportunity to laugh off the Obama attempts at controlling the Internet.  A few have even made parody commercials (seen below).

We are sure we will be added to the hit list as we were by Media Matters in 2008.  We see them as badges of Honor, so thank in advance.

The site is so ridiculous even the Washington Post has commented on AttackWatch.

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 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 — mostly from conservatives — 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. The contributor linked to the following parody commercial for Attack Watch:
