Nice try Mitch. But wysiwyg. Rotten treatment of young and poor. Not to mention women, men, animals, insects. The whole kahuna. We are being delivered into the courts of the Louies if we think this guy wouldn't exult when the guillotine drops. But we know what's up, don't we Mitch. You are grading Mitt a failure on schedule to vault to the nomination yourself. Be careful or I will report you to Al Sharpton.

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.

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. 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.
