Let's just get this out of the way. I'm not good with video editing software... at all. I've tried.

But I am good at creating ads in my head. Here is one that just has to be made.
I will pay someone $100 if they make this. Perhaps others join me.

I think it's a killer, a game changer.

I have hunted for a certain clip of the debate. It was about halfway through Obama was giving an answer. The screen was split and McCain started peering toward the camera like he was trying to focus on the chart at the eye doctors. It was very strange and frankly, he looked ridiculous.

Find that clip and the rest is easy.

Lets get to it.

Dark Screen

Announcer: "The last 8 years of Republican rule has been devastating to our nations economy."

Fade in of headlines, pictures of crying, frightened homeowner, banks failing, scary headlines telling of foreclosures and economic doom.
Show statistics of our national debt

Announcer: "Americans having been facing economic hardships for some time. They know something is wrong in Washington."
Image Clips of gas prices

Announcer: "but does John McCain see the problem?"

Video clip of:

"The fundamentals of our economy are strong"

"Picking lettuce for $50 an hour"

"Middle class is making 5 Million a year"

Announcer: "From a man who owns 13 cars (pics) and 8 homes (pics) and was part of the biggest banking scandal in our nations history (Keating Five headlines)

"How can John McCain fix our nations problems, if he can't even see them?"

Debate video of him squinting and peering at the camera.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
