During a prime-time slot, run a video package that starts with this quote from Romney's convention speech:

You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.
Then cut to the following...

A gay soldier: "The best feeling I had was when President Obama signed the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell."

A Detroit auto worker: "The best feeling I had was when President Obama saved the American auto industry."

A business woman: "The best feeling I had was when President Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law."

A military wife (baby in arms) with her husband in uniform: "When President Obama ended the war in Iraq."

A military husband with his wife in uniform: "When he brought my wife home from Iraq."

A college student: "When he made it easier to pay for my student loans."

A middle-aged woman: "The best feeling I had was when President Obama's health care law allowed me to receive free preventive care."

Parents with a sick child: "When President Obama made sure my daughter won't be denied health care because of a pre-existing condition."

A gay couple: "When he supported our right to get married."

A group of New York firefighters: "When President Obama gave the order that brought Osama Bin Laden to justice."

A couple at the kitchen table doing the bills: "When he stopped the credit card companies from preying on me."

An Hispanic student: "When he gave me a pathway to citizenship."

An elderly couple: "The best feeling I had was when President Obama closed the doughnut hole and put money back into my pocket."

And finally, somebody (pick your demographic): "The best feeling is knowing I have a president who cares about the problems of people like me."

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.
