Check out this devastating new ad from the Obama campaign:

It has people on the street trying out the new tax calculator website that lets one compare their taxes under Obama vs. under Romney. One husband in the ad says:

"(we are) royally screwed under Romney"
And here's the website, so you can check your own taxes:

This reminds me of the epic win of from the 2008 campaign, a website and ad campaign that unveiled McCain's creepy quasi-criminal role in the Keating Scandal. Buh-bye, Mittens.

Update 1:

From blue jersey mom in the comments:

Excellent. I just used the calculator.
Our family saved $6400 in Obama's first term. We would pay an additional $1300+ under Romney. With a kid in college, that's not chump change.
I may add more comment testimonials as they come in. Forward!!!!!!!!! :)

Update 2: ACTION! Viral or Bust

Please help make this video ad and/or website the game-ender it can be.

This may not seem like an exciting update, but it's important, and sooooo easy. Just send these links out to all your friends and family, and watch the youtube counter soar skyward!:

the video ad on youtube:

the above is the most important one, because it leads people to the tax calculator website:

Facebook, tweet, carrier pigeon, smoke's all good. Cheers. :)

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.
