Attack Watch, website started by President Obama’s campaign organization, was intended to be a repository for supporters to report “attacks” on Obama’s record and get the facts. But its rollout has been met with scathing mockery by conservatives, who call it a second-rate version of previous Big Brother sites created by Team Obama.
But syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin said this site, the fourth one launched in three years attempting to respond to political attacks, has backfired on the Obama team.
“What this is really about is some sort of campaign against their opponents, and it’s not working anymore,” she said.
“Back in 2008, the Obama campaign had claimed this mantle as the tech savvy geniuses, and what’s happened is that conservatives on Twitter and on YouTube and all the social networks have been able to strike back, and humor is always the best revenge,” she said.
