Mitt Romney smirks after attacking President Obama over the Libya attacks
I didn't get this rich by paying for things, buddy.
One of the luxuries of being a "job creator" is that you don't have to respect anybody else's property rights. Want a song? Just play it! Need a soup kitchen for a photo-op? Commandeer one, silly! Really attached to the "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" of Friday Night Lights, even though the show's creator, Peter Berg, has explicitly called it "plagiarism" and asked you to stop using it? Rub it in his face by actually selling campaign swag emblazoned with the phrase on your website:
On Sunday, the candidate orchestrated a flag football game between his staff and reporters who follow his campaign. The team captains were given rubber bracelets with the slogan on them. Now the campaign is selling the bracelets online; a $10 dollar donation gets you a red, white and blue set.
So not only did the Romney camp steal the phrase outright for their campaign, now they're making money off it. Nice.

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.
