Two bloggers now report that Mitt Romney told 27 lies in 38 minutes. Very scary when you figure what happened this country under serial liar George Bush.

President Obama was back out yesterday telling the truth about Romney's taxes. 30,000 met Obama in Wisconsin to hear the President set the facts straight.

Time for all of us to hit the streets the next two days to do our bit to set the facts straight!

Romney evidently slept in yesterday, and only did one event. The Romney Campaign will contrast him with Obama at every event. Romney's oldest son is playing larger a role in the campaign.

The Obama Campaign says that they intentionally dialled back the the President so as not to take any chances or make any mistakes.

As I've written before, the President can never look like the angry Black Man even when Mii Romney is totally assuming "White Male Privilege".

Please get my book Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing to learn how to win against the odds, learn how to get up when you're down, to learn how to be a better organizer.

All this means our street work, our ground work, and our phone work is more important than ever. Many of us have thought that President Obama, David Axelrod, and David Plouffe are political geniuses or even magicians that don't need our army of supporters.

OBAMA NEEDS US!  IT IS TIME FOR US TO GET A WALK LIST and A PHONE LIST AND GET BUST.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT THESE TWO HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL MEN. THIS IS ABOUT OUR KIDS AND OUR NATION AND THE LEGACY OF HISTORY MAKING FREEDOM FIGHTERS.

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.
