Lucas Gray, an accomplished artist and television animator, has created the best video I've ever seen to make the argument for President Obama's re-election on economic terms alone.  

The three-minute video, narrated by a speech Obama delivered at the Associated Press Luncheon in April of 2012, rips apart the concept of "trickle-down" with swift, precise and visually-helpful animation.

This is a video that is superbly animated, constructed and deserves a wide viewing audience.


In my humble opinion, this video is so well done that, if edited and scaled back, it could easily become a potential television ad buy.

It's that good.

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.
