Romney is tied to Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers

Mitt Romney is tied to Rove and the Koch Brothers 
in addition to Bork and Bolton
Does Mitt Romney want to be tied to Karl Rove
the man who virtually made George W. Bush
and who is therefore an accessory after the fact of
the most disastrous administration in American history
Does Romney want to be associated with the Kochs
One glance at the Koch products demonstrates
why they are the most Right Wing folk of all
All of their products resonate with the very worst
aspects of an economy that places profit above people
They depend on the sprawl economy for their billions
The answer of course is that Mr. Romney is glad to be
associated with all the people named here
Which would be fine if you were not a member of
the 99 percent who do not benefit when Rove
and the Kochs achieve their objectives
Because of these clear and transparent associations
And behind him lurks 
even worse risk for us all

The solution is the re-election of the President
and the installation of sane Democratic majorities
in all offices everywhere

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

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
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. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

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.
