This stems from the deity complex of the most wealthy.

Wheelies: The Blame-Game Edition - NYTimes.com: "• On Thursday night, during the Republican Party presidential candidates debate in Sioux City, Iowa, Mitt Romney criticized President Obama for supporting loans from the Energy Department for Tesla Motors and Fisker Automotive, each of which amounted to roughly $500 million. “So he invests as a venture capitalist in certain car companies that have electric battery power, not understanding that perhaps Toyota and G.M. could do a better job than Tesla and Fisker,” Mr. Romney said. As David Shepardson of The Detroit News wrote on Twitter, Mr. Romney did not acknowledge that the Obama administration had invested $36 billion in General Motors as part of the company’s bankruptcy reorganization in 2009.

This stems from the deity complex of the most wealthy. It simply cannot be that they would be wrong or that a fixed idea would not be true. It does no good to correct them. You are toast if you dare challenge.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us.

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.
