Defeating the "outspent" it will be hard to win meme

Barack Obama will be the first President 
to be outspent every email says
If we don't (contribute three bucks or a higher amount) 
we could lose
Let me say this as politely as I can
We are beating Romney now because we
agreed not to cave when people said go easy on Bain
We are winning ONLY to the extent that we are 
being tough
The worst thing we could do is not use 
Romney' buying the election
as our banner
Let's call the Romney PAC  what it is
the 30 Billionaires Club
Let's take the gloves off
With humor
With anger
With indignation
at the nerve of the treasonous GOP
They want to win so bad they will risk global depression
They are the dregs
of the greed culture
Stop talking outspent
and we could lose
That is retro-Democratic Party bullshit
Talk about Romney not being able to
buy the election
because he is penniless when it comes to programs
and broke when it comes
to understanding the American people
Do this while he is over dancing with his horses

"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.
