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.

    Nor can the Party that nominated him. GOTV! Upticket and down ticket. We CAN take back the House!

    khyber900 has a diary up that can help us do just that. He's put together a listing of which House races are in play. It's an amazing resource. Here's the link.

      Hope it's shared far and wide. Like all of us, I'm still so disgusted by that man's complete disregard for the truth and disrespect for our fallen and their families.

      His naked ambition trumps everything, including common decency. He makes me ill. But enough of that.

      Glad to read that you're having a bright day, Clem. :)  May there be many more.

        •  That's exactly how I'm feeling, Floyd Blue. (5+ / 0-)

          "Dumbfounded" and struggling with grief actually.

          Grief for Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith and the others we've lost. Worry for all our Diplomatic Corps. I've been around for over sixty years and been a political junkie for most of them. I've never, ever, seen such blatantly self serving, disrespectful actions by a Presidential candidate as I did yesterday.

          There's no way to articulate everything that's overwhelmed the heart.

          And we're not alone. Look at this man's face.

                ....I just couldn't watch the news anymore.  I couldn't stand hearing the lies and the irrational attacks against our president.  I was going fetal.  But writing it and reading it makes me (and others, I am told) feel better.  It gave me a sense of empowerment as I watched the news and picked through the trolls' comments on places like huffpost; sickened at the outright lies and the false equivalents, etc etc etc.

                (By the way, I really get sick of people in general, self-promoting, and though I do contribute to this site, I sometimes worry that I am self-promoting a bit too much.  That is one of the reasons I decided to donate all royalties from sales to Obama's re-election campaign.  I brought it up here because it honestly does make me feel better to have written it, and to be contributing to our President's re-election, as my wife and I have negative disposable income at present.  SO, TO PROVE I AM NOT TRYING TO SELL YOU ANYTHING, if you message me your address, I will send you a free copy, if you want.)

      Thanks, Olympia.

      During the last week I ended up reading Foreign Policy Magazine. They are scathing in their denouncements of Mitt's Foreign Policy team.

    •  That's a completely justifiable expectation. (3+ / 0-)

      Was doing some checking of how MSM was reacting to things today and checked out some of Morning Joe.

      Of course they were having a huge hissy fit about how Romney needs to stand up for Conservative principles of course or else the race is lost.

      Something I found hysterical as it's so disconnected from the views of most of the American people.

      But during the conversation Mika Brzezinsk said something fascinating regarding Romney and how he is being perceived by conservative voters.

      "I think the worry is that the mask is off and nothing is there."

      That ties in with your comment perfectly.

        I watched it this morning to see where the Romeny  shrapnel would land. I thought Zbigniew Brzezinski's comments re: President Obama's handling of foreign policy with respect to Israel seemed to land on the President's side.
        He seemed to be saying that PBO had to walk a line in the middle so as to not be seen as being "in the pockets" of Israel, but standing with the rest of the Arab world as well. I wish I had the video clip so someone smarter than me could tell me if that's how they read it.
        That was after I was foaming at the mouth over Senator McCain's embrace of Romney's "feckless foreign policy" meme.

        •  McCain tends to do that to people. :( (3+ / 0-)

          But this is exactly what they are going to continue to do. Romney laid it all out in his book apparently. It truly is how he sees the President's approach to Foreign Policy. Or else he's lying again and his book was written to convince Neo-Cons and Conservatives that he's their guy.

          Who the hell knows what he really thinks outside of winning trumping everything.  

          Here's the video of the segment on Morning Joe with Dr. Brzezinski if anyone would like to watch it and chime in.

          Brzezinski is clearly warning us that the situation in Africa and the Middle East is far more complex and fraught with danger than most people are aware of. And he stresses that's why we need a wise, calm, steady hand when dealing with this. That is President Obama. Not Romney.
