Fighting Boehner, McConnell and Romney's Positions is Obama's Best Chance for a Landslide

Fighting Boehner, McConnell and Romney's Positions is Obama's Best Chance for a Landslide

Approval of Congress is in the cellar
Campaign against a do-nothing Congress

Obama was under attack from day one
Campaign against McConnell's traitorous declaration

Obama was and remains ready for the Grand Bargain
Boehner caved to the Tea party

The Supreme Court is in the cellar in terms of public opinion
Romney will Bork the Court - a huge issue for women

Romney and Congress want to kill Obamacare
Show the hurt they intend

Do crisp ads highlighting statements of Congressional GOP sorts
asking is this what we want for another four years

Emphasize breaking the gridlock and getting back to
a politics that is civil and adult 

Show that Romney will be the captive of the Tea Party 
just as Boehner and McConnell have become

Show that Romney will inevitably be the captive
both of the Tea Party and the billionaires that support him

Let surrogates pile on the questions 
Romney's impersonation fetish
Romney's bully tactics
Romney's say anything obfuscatory mode 
Let Obama take the high ground and brush off the Hard Right
as a passing stage in an America that has its mojo with the exception of
a disgusting Congress and a corrupt Court

"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.
