The Mitt Said To Have "Won" The Debate Is a Predatory Jackal and Pathological Liar


Like everyone else I have been trying to make sense of things
I have seen Mitt's bump
Before the first debate came noxious GOP voter suppression efforts
and  noxious GOP lying ads 
funded by deluded billionaires who owe their wealth to the President they hate
These efforts give four percent off the poll gap to Mitt
Given the six point gap Obama needs just to squeak by
we are now under threat
I did not see it that way during the debate
I saw Mitt as a predatory jackal rudely advancing unrestrained
lie after unrestrained bald-faced lie
 But from the subsequent wailing wall at MSNBC to dissembling Right Wing glee
the verdict was Mitt won
Now I know why
Enough Americans believed a man they met only once
Mitt's bald-faced lies were truth to them
They had never known different
It takes little effort to
establish the three points needed to re-achieve an Obama edge
POINT ONE
Reassert the portrait of Mitt set forth before the debate
It's only part of what is true about Mitt
Reveal MORE truth from Gawker and Vanity Fair, etc.
The Right will cry foul but there is just too much there
POINT TWO
Say Mitt was no different in the debate than before it
Only his lies changed
Point to the risks.
Use the lie word
Stop being nice
The American people want Democrats to show backbone
Call the media on such things as assuming that Romney
is doing something great when
he promises them exactly the number of jobs that are
anticipated to be gained no matter who is president
POINT THREE
Refute the argument that Mitt is flexible
(like Reagan)
Today's GOP itself is not the GOP of the Reagan era
It is the child of the Ryan era
The you're on your own era
The screw the middle class forget the poor era
The war on women kill government era
SO
If people want to hold a binary view of Mitt
they are welcome to do so
but we must point out that he would be a governing disaster
and say why

"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.
