All President Obama has to do is announce the immediate pull out of all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. Not only will it energize the Democratic base, it will provide a major talking point when Mitt Romney and other Republicans denounce it.

President Obama can then simply accuse Mitt Romney and other prominent Republicans of being chicken hawks, by pointing out how easily they are willing to sacrifice the lives of so many brave young Americans, in far off lands, while they and their families sit in luxury in their mansions. [Something the president, in good conscience, isn't willing to do any more!]

Then President Obama can go on to point how Mitt Romney and others, by evading taxes for the past 10 years, showed their lack of willingness to even help fund those wars, but instead called for even lower taxes, and to pay for those wars through even greater cuts to social security and medicare, two programs designed to help the most vulnerable members of society.

It's a simple strategy, that will be hailed by progressives and many others alike, will put Mitt Romney and Republicans on the defensive, and without question sway the election in the favor of Obama.

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.
