President will create a smaller military footprint over time

President will create 
A smaller military footprint over time 
And we will be the stronger for it
Barack Obama President phased out 
The F-22 that wasn't even used in recent years

Barack Obama Commander in Chief 
Cut Reagan's missile defense extravaganza 
And saved a billion plus

Barack Obama Commander stopped planning missile systems 
in Poland and the Czech Republic 
and opted to build smaller better systems

The President knows a large foot 
gets mired in deathly stasis 
He makes smaller feet than can 
move lithely

He knows that the battlefield of the future is 
and prepares

The President has made 
and will make more and more progress 
In the area of nuclear disarmament

No weakness is perceived in any of 
these acts

We will move to a smaller and 
more mobile foot 
We will not try to force nations to 
accept our ideology 
We will defend only

We will economize enough 
to enable needed expenses at home 
because national security is threatened by 
the polarization of our society 
by irresponsible 
bearers of untruth

So I shall support the President 
and warn against 
those who would march in lockstep 
to restore the very mentality 
that created the massive footprints 
of Iraq and Afghanistan 
War is what 
we can no longer do

"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.
