It's that sound that makes it work.  It's everywhere . . . all over the video.  I showed it to my brother, yesterday morning.  Six hours later, we were riding down the road and and he was making that sound . . . "chooka-chooka-chooka" . . . and laughing.  

That sound is what will stick with people.  That's the sound they'll make, when they see Mitt Romney on television.

Seriously.  

A little thing like that is the kind of thing that can sink Mitt Romney . . . .

. . . if enough people see it.

Think about this.  Every viral freelance video that burns an image . . . or a sound . . . into people's consciousness, means that much less cash Obama has to spend to counteract the Koch Brothers' billions.

So recommend this diary.  Then, share the video.  

Transcript is below the fold.  H/t to Daily Kos TV for two of the clips we used.

Here's a transcript . . . if you must.  But remember, reading the screenplay isn't the same as seeing the movie.

 

Mitt Romney's Communication director compared Mitt Romney . . .

. . . to an etch-a-sketch.

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He says humans are causing climate change . . .

Romney:  But I believe based on what I read that the earth is getting warmer . . .and that humans contribute to that . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

And he says he doesn't know . . .

Romney:  My view is that we don't know what's causing climate change on this planet . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He said he supports a woman's right to choose . . .

Romney:  I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He also says he doesn't . . .

Romney:  I believe people understand that I am firmly pro-life . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He didn't support the Blunt amendment, allowing your boss to make decisions about your birth control . . .

Romney:  I'm not for the bill but look . . . the idea of Presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception . . . I'm not going there . . .

[c0hooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Just hours later,

Romney:  I didn't understand his question, of course I support the Blunt amendment . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He says he NEVER hired any undocumented immigrants . . .

Romney:  I don't think I've ever hired an illegal in my life . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

TWO minutes later,

Romney:  We hired a lawn company to mow our lawn, and they had illegal immigrants that were working there . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He called his Massachussetts healthcare plan a model for the nation . . .

Romney:  Well, that's what we did in Massachussetts, and that is we put together an exchange . . . and the President's copying that idea, I'm glad to hear that . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then said it wasn't . . .

Romney:  I was asked about the Massachussetts plan, was it something I'd impose on the nation, and the answer is absolutely not . . . [h/t to Daily Kos TV for this and the previous clip.]

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He attacked Obama's rescue of the American auto industry, saying "let them go bankrupt . . .

Romney:  The headline that you read which said that "let Detroit go bankrupt" points out that those companies needed to go through bankruptcy shed those costs . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then he claimed credit for the President's plan as his own idea . . .

Romney:  The President ultimately did what I suggested . . . going through a managed bankruptcy process . . . I wrote and op-ed about it.

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

He said America needed an economic stimulus . . .

Romney:  I think there is need for economic stimulus . . . and government can help make that up in a very difficult time . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then he said "no way" he ever supported a stimulus plan . . .

Romney:  No time no where, no how,have I supported the the President's stimulus . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then he said Obama's stimulus plan made the economy worse . . .

Romney:  And I know the President didn't cause this downturn . . . but he didn't make it better, either . . . he made it worse . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then he said, it didn't make it worse . . .

Romney:  I didn't say that things were worse, what I said was that the economy hasn't turned around . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Then he said, well, maybe things were getting better . . .

Romney:  This recover, and I believe we're in a recovery mode . . . finally . . .

[chooka-chooka-chooka . . . ]

Mitt Romney has said a lot things .

But it doesn't really matter what he says . . .

What matters is what Mitt Romney will DO . . .

7:33 PM PT: Rec LIst!  Thank you . . . and don't forget to "share" the video.

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.
