Republicans Are Crazy Not to Take Obama at His Word
As our credit rating is being gnawed at by Wall street sorts and the Republican wingnuts are talking loud and signifying only hatred for Barack Obama, the President has made an offer of a compromise that would do both parties proud and increase our financial security around the world. That truth is getting lost as people try to puzzle out what sort of a hit we will take by continuing to act as we are acting now.

Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.
This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
