If I may be indulged in a bit of paraphrasing:

Obama: I tried to change Washington on my own so it would work for the American People again, but I couldn't do it because Republicans refused to work with me and the Democrats in Congress. I was able to accomplish some pretty good things, though, because the American People wanted those things done, and they pressured Congress to act. If I get a second term, I want and need the American People to be even more involved in governing our country.

Romney: AH-HA! GAFFE! HE SAID YOU CAN'T CHANGE WASHINGTON! HE ADMITS HE'S A FAILURE FOR PETE'S SAKE! MARVELOUS!

American People: Um, that's not what he said at all, Mitt.

Romney: FORTY-SEVEN PERCENT OF YOU NEED TO SHUT UP AND KNOW YOUR PLACE. AREN'T YOU PAYING ATTENTION?! IT! WAS! A! GAFFE!

American People: Are you really saying it's a gaffe to suggest that American People get more involved in the governing of our country?

Ann Romney: You people need to realize this was a gaffe, you people.

Romney: YES! GAME CHANGER! MARVELOUS!

American People: This is why you're going to lose, jack ass.

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.
