    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 has ridiculed it.

    “There's a new Twitter account making President Obama look like a creepy, authoritarian nutjob,” an Arizonan tweeted. ...

    I have to say some of the responses on Twitter are very funny.

    I reported this site for unfairly accusing Obama of supporting the Zionist pigs.

    Him having this site suggests that it should have been in SLT thread.

    I say we all report each other and whoever gets a t-shirt or first class ticket to the re-education camp hidden under DIA makes sure they either take pics of the t-shirt or save us spaces in the good bunks. :p I want top bunk, by the door.

    Don't report each other.

    Report members of DU and Daily Kos who are saying disgruntled things about Obama. Its funnier when he has to waste time disproving what his own party is saying about him.

    As Yogi Berra would say, "It's Deja Vu all over again." Only this time we're not talking about Barack Obama's latest effort to spend hundreds of billions of dollars (that we don't have) on shovel ready jobs (which don't exist).

    No, we're talking about "Attack Watch," the new website which exists for the sole purpose of letting people rat out anyone who speaks negatively of Barack Hussein Obama. The website, which sports a black background which is about as welcoming as a hug from Darth Vader, invites people to share what "attack" they've heard, where they heard it, and promises that tipsters will receive 30 pieces of silver in the future "if those terrorist sons of bitches in the GOP House just pass the president's entirely paid for spending bill".

    Okay, it doesn't actually say that, but it's pretty clearly implied.

    And the reason that all of this smells so familiar is because Obama did it all before when he demanded that citizens turn in their neighbors at the offensively-named Flag@Whitehouse.gov a couple of years ago (and which Hope n' Change covered here).

    And while all of this suggests the frightening totalitarian mindset of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, or East Germany, there is good news to report.

    The president's "Attack Watch" website has rapidly been turned into one of the biggest jokes on the Internet by tens of thousands of Americans who believe that Freedom of Speech is something to be exercised instead of reported...and that attacks on the Constitution are more dangerous than attacks on a sleazy, hate-mongering political hack from Chicago.
