See the poster below the fold.

If you're unfamiliar with Attach Watch, one of Obama's re-election strategies, read THIS.

Meanwhile, according to the Washington Post, Attack Watch has become the laughingstock of the Internet (especially at Twitter). Along those humorous lines, watch the following video:

  1. I'm surprised the site hasn't crashed with all the reporting from all of us on the Right making fun of them. It wasn't enough to have one site like this, now they have two.

  2. Debbie,
    Yes, I, too, am surprised that the site didn't crash.

    And I had some fun over there yesterday myself, tweeting and retweeting. A few of those retweets:

    @velvethammer Velvet Hammer
    #tcot RT @Brunette_W #attackwatch My neighbor flies the American flag in his front yard can you come get him? And then can I have his stuff?

    --------------

    Hey #attackwatch. I want to report #attackwatch for being the laughing stock of the internet, and wasting tax money.

    --------------

    #attackwatch did you realize that Obama is becoming America's yoko ono?

    --------------

    Hey #attackwatch, I saw 6 ATM's in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!


    At one point, tweets were coming in at the rate of 75 a minute. LOL!

    --------------

    In the meantime, Obama administration officials are busy buying up copies of a book unflattering to Obama.

  3. Quite a few unflattering comments at Obama's campaign web site, too.

    Maybe the monitors there are too busy trying to buy up that new book that the Obama administration doesn't want people to see.

  4. Ross Kaminsky had an excellent article on the Twitter debacle,

    http://spectator.org/archives/2011/09/16/watching-attackwatch-attacks

    My favorite tweet:

    From joaniekensil: "Ate refried beans & chips for breakfast which is sort of racist foodist - Carbon emissions to follow."

    Kaminsky's bottom line is that the twitter campaign is a colossal fail because unlike website postings, you can't remove the offending tweets.

    Liberals were the vaunted kings of "new media" a few short years ago. Now they are the fuddy duddies.

  5. Whose money is being used to buy up all the copies of "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President?" Wouldn't it be easier just to pay-off the publisher? If that doesn't work, burn his house to ground and kill his dog?

    Speaking of food tweets directed to Attack Watch:

  9. Someone has to counter the constant stream of lies from the right. It's asinine to think this is some type of brown shit organization, But typical of wingnuts to think so.

    But thanks for the link, I'll add this site.

  10. For example, Type in 'Health Care' and you get a list of articles spreading lies. So sad the right hates the truth.

  11. When I first saw the poster I thought of Hitler's program to have neighbors spy on each other... though I agree, this sounds strait out of 1984.

    Difference? They did it right, BO is just making a fool of himself.

    Why he would bother to try something like this has me wondering... does he acually realize he's a failure?

  14. The right are the biggest liars by far. The corporate right actually gets average Americans to hate each other and vote against their own interests.

    Robert Reich Debunks 6 Big GOP Lies About the Economy:
    (Reich actually explains why his talking points are the truth. He is assuming that the listener is intelligent enough to grasp it. This is what we liberals do. What conservatives do is tell the same old lies and assail the same old scapegoats over and over again, and hope that the listener is either too stupid or too lazy to find out for himself if it's true.)

    1) Tax cuts to the rich and corporations trickle down to the rest of us. (No it doesn't and it never has.)

    2) If you shrink government you create jobs. (No, you get rid of jobs that way.)

    3) High taxes on the rich hurts the economy. (No, the economy grew when the US did this under Eisenhower.)

    4) Debt is to be avoided and it is mostly caused by Medicare. (No, if debt is properly used to grow the economy, it becomes a smaller part of the budget because of increased revenue and Medicare has the lowest overhead of any health insurance plan out there.)

    5) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme (No, its solid for 26 years. Rick Perry is "lying through his teeth" says Reich. Social Security is solid beyond that if the rich pay the same percentage in social security taxes as the rest of us do.)

    6) We need to tax the poor. (This is what Republicans have been proposing when they say any tax reform needs to involve all Americans because poor people pay no income tax. The poor have no money and taxing them will not solve our budget problems.)

  15. ) Tax cuts to the rich and corporations trickle down to the rest of us.--This is not an accurate position of Conservatives. What we are saying if people have more disposable income they spend. This is true whether one is true or rich (which is osrt of relative term since most americans are rich by World standards) The point there has been 200+ years of demonstrated examples that "rich" people in a free market system use their disposable income to hire people in their own companies and invest in other people's companies....or do you think it is a coincidence that so many live so weel in the US as opposed to the World?

    2) If you shrink government you create jobs.---Yes you get rid of jobs, government jobs. However, in a balanced economy the number of people not producing wealth is small or else you start creating debt as fewer people are pulling the wagon so to speak---ie Europe, USSR


    3) High taxes on the rich hurts the economy. --Overly simplified description of Macroeconomics....see question 1. You cited Eisenhower...um duh this is post World War II. America was the only country left on the planet with a fully functioning industrial complex....high taxes had nothing to do with it and most Americans were repaying ourselves for our investments in the War...unlike today when we owe China

    4) Debt is to be avoided and it is mostly caused by Medicare.--How long do you think the World can float the largest economy. Yes small amounts of debt can be useful which is why in the past when the ceiling was raised who cared but now we are past the point of believing we can ever repay our debt.

    (5) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme --A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from any actual profit earned by the individual or organization running the operation. Even if we disagree on the definition the fact that the fund is filled with IOUs makes government no better than Enron.

    6) We need to tax the poor. (This is what Republicans have been proposing when they say any tax reform needs to involve all Americans because poor people pay no income tax. The poor have no money and taxing them will not solve our budget problems.)

  16. 6) We need to tax the poor.

    --again overly simplified....Its not your folk you are a product of a public school education.

    --let me try to explain. This is a system and the system produces tax revenue. In the current configuration the employers pay most of the taxes directly to the government and pay their employees less. Every time you lower taxes on employees some one has to pick up the tab. This is fine until the employer decideds to move to India....Concurrently, these employees decide they can vote for more because they are "not" paying for it. The result even higher taxes on the employer.

  17. I do like this thread as it has revealed the one of the weakness of conservatism.

    Conservatism requires among other things an awareness of economics. Conservative values can not be broken down into sound bites and they can not be simplified into emotionally charged phrases. Conservativism is rooted in logical, critical thinking, and knowledge.

    Liberalism by contrast is rooted in emotion. It is easy to come up with short quips. In a culture of educated people these quips are recognized as the blatterings of the ignorant and ill informed. In order to be sucessful liberalism needs a centrally controlled education system to dumb down the general public and enslave them to government.

  18. Blogginator, Conservativism is rooted in logical, critical thinking, and knowledge.

    As opposed to Robert Reich giving his opinion and the sheeple like Bd buying it as gospel.

  19. Take a look at the black, red and white color scheme and ask yourself what movement in 20th Century history you are reminded of?

    Reporting on your neighbors and disseminating propaganda ring a bell?

    Final hint: perhaps Obama should post the site in the original German language!

    Unfortunately, the American electorate has been dumbed down so far that they are gullible to sound bytes. We also live in the Age of the Cult of Personality. The election of Barack Hussein Obama proves both those contentions.

    I've made fun of Attack Watch. But the reality is that it is alarming and smacks of Hitler and Stalin.

  22. FYI....

    Bd loves to paste the same comment at various blogs. He did so at a thread over at Silverfiddle's site and left the same comment as he did her. Hugh took Bd to task and debunked his numbered list. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ANOTHER FYI, particularly for Bd

    Those who paste the same comment in various places multiple times without acknowledging that they are doing so can be considered spammers. So, I may delete those duplicate comments if I deem that they are nothing more than drive-by commenting.

    Continue to do so, and I'll delete every comment you make as soon as I am aware of that comment. I'll also notify my team blogger Warren.

  24. I want folks to notice something about Hugh's response and mine. This is what we mean by critical analysis. Both of us considered the period during which Eisenhower served the US. In other a global view of events both inside and outside the US. The liberal does not do this. He/she just accepts information with no concept of the socio economic forces at work during the event being discussed. The liberal only considers the globe when it suits a liberal agenda item say like taking away our right to bear arms.

    As Hugh pointed out Eisenhower realized he was serving in an expanding economy an economy that could be used to repay the debts incurred to the American people during WWII.

    Young people reading this you need to understand something. In the past we borrowed from ourselves so the debt was to us. US War Bonds were bought by Americans. All debt is not the same.

    Today Obama and company are printing money.

  25. Blogginator,
    I want folks to notice something about Hugh's response and mine. This is what we mean by critical analysis.

    Yes! Critical analysis (critical thinking) involves marshaling evidence. That skill should be taught in ALL courses in high school -- and introduced even earlier.

    My primary focus in teaching my groups of homeschoolers is expository writing. The rubric I use mentions "marshaling evidence." No evidence, no passing grade.

    Of course, we also do other kinds of writing -- but not very much. The focus has to be critical thinking -- before it's too late for the brain to think that way. Windows of learning do close, you know.

  26. Hey, you guys spread the same lies across the web. So wtf. Hate the truth, eh?

    And...Hugh only posted more wingnut rhetoric and the usual lies. He debunked nothing.

  27. LOL

    My apologies!

    I just checked my spam folder and found your September 18 comment there.

  32. AOW not a problem

    As to Bd's comments regarding printing money. Actually you are correct. Obama and company are not actually printing money as that would imply that they were creating something on a piece of paper. I think it was Barney Frnk from the obama class of clowns that send they are creating it by key strokes on a computer. Printing money on paper would it would be worth at least the price of a piece of paper.

    And Bd, I grieve for you and your complete lack of anything resembling an education. I recommend you call the college you went to and get a refund.
