Saying GOP obstructs makes the GOP base happy and accomplishes little. Saying GOP will harm you and showing how is better.

Ryan put politics before country, killed bipartisanship and risked a worse economic depression.  

"Mr. Ryan drew a blueprint for a government that would be absent when people needed it the most" 

So Ayn Rand needed medicare and Saul Alinsky was a normal American and in death they become political footballs.

Specificity was never Romney's plan. So he chooses Mr. Specific. Plan overboard. 

1. No proof hecklers of Ryan were plants. 2. He ignored the farm bill Ryan is focusing popular anger. 

I think Romneycide is a reasonable condensation of the actual result of Romney Ryan economic policies. A form of genocide. 

Ayn Rand was a parody of individualism. She promoted the right of individuals to trample anyone who stood in their way. Roark=McVeigh

Ryan ineptly says his hecklers mist not be from Iowa or Wisconsin. That should come back to bite him.

Watching Ryan dealing with hecklers and then lapse into Boehner-like cliches is a reassuring indication. Introducing

Our society is steeped in corruption with advantage and disadvantage at every level. At least Obama is serious. Romney is a joke.

"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

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.
