Sorry for the crude title. I just can't get enough of this Youtube Video:

That video probably took less than an hour to compile. With Santorum dropping out today, it looks like the field is clear for Romney, all he has to do is not let Newt have another comeback. Yesterday I wrote a diary about GOP talk radio in AZ. One message that I wanted to drive home was the power of messaging. The GOP is now trying to say that President Obama is the one who is waging a War on Women. We must not like them win the fight this year. We have to up the ante. Calling them out on the Blunt-Rubio Amendment should keep going. We should take quotes from Olympia Snowe and Lisa Murkowski to show Conservatives that their own women dislike their policies.

Not to mention how unlikeable Romney is. Everytime I see him I want to whip myself with Twizzlers. He is getting the nomination of his party without majority support. This will depress downballot Republicans and hopefully set us up with a Democratic House.

At this point, I do not see a way for Mitt Romney to win. I did my own 270towin map and ended up with this: http://www.270towin.com/...

I don't think Romney will win FL, OH, or PA. What I hope to happen is this: http://www.270towin.com/...
Obama already has strong organization on the ground. He needs to start pouring money into GA and AZ. In AZ, I think it will be close, but Obama can win it if he tries. GA Polling has been closer than I have expected it to be.
Public Policy Polling is the most recent GA poll out showing Romney up by 3 over Obama.
Real Clear Politics has an average of Obama losing to Romney by 4.

My predictions: If we don't get AZ & GA this time, it will be up for grabs in 2016.
I also want to hear about any organizing where Kossacks see progress. You East Coasters should be proud of us Arizona Dems ;-D. When we grow up we wanna be just like you!

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.
