OK I realize I'm a bit of a music snob, but I have some problems with the video. The song is standard pop drivel, whatever. Can't really do any harm but won't bring anyone across a line, either. Might bring some people into the polls. I guess this kind of thing doesn't motivate me but it might motivate young people, who knows.

But I don't care for the raised 4 fingers thing, and marching down a main street of retail shops and businesses. I also don't like the black and white, or the yelling Obama. I'd sooner see us excited about the party or a policy. I'd feel different if they were yelling Roe v wade or healthcare. It's a little too demagogic for america, imho.

Now, before the flaming starts, I am personally madly in love with this man. I think he's the greatest president we've ever had, and of course I'd like to see him remain in power for the remainder of my lifetime. Please don't remind me about term limits.

It's a little too over the top: a little too Sich Heil, and obvious. If the marchers were substituted with Tea party old folks yelling Romney, it would be terrifying.

So I think this might actually turn some undecideds off.

Release the attack dogs.
