Just saw this on the tv machine, so googled for the sponsors and found the ad. See below the orange Obama fist bump:

I don't have a transcript, but here is what it is about:

“Mitt Romney pretends his campaign is about creating jobs, but the extreme agenda he and his allies are pushing is already costing Colorado workers theirs,” said Navin Nayak, LCV Victory Fund Senior Vice President of Campaigns. “Instead of looking out for middle class workers like Chris, Mitt Romney is siding with his Big Oil backers and letting America’s clean energy jobs be created in places like China.”

The ad features Chris Maese of Pueblo, Colo., who built wind turbines at Vestas’ Pueblo facility. Vestas is the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer. In the ad, Maese talks about how Romney’s opposition to extending the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy helped cause his layoff in August.

Politico reported that senior Senate sources have said that Romney’s opposition to extending the PTC “derailed” a bipartisan Senate agreement to renew the tax credit.  The New York Times similarly reported that “Senate Republicans removed” the PTC extension from the Senate Finance Committee’s tax extenders package “to show their loyalty” to Romney.   Two weeks later, Vestas announced the layoffs at its Pueblo facility.

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.
