The fact that Obama is grabbing after the Big Bird issue is that he has nothing else to exploit.

He certainly can't exploit his own accomplishments.

It further adds to his stupidity, seeing that the government only funds a very TINY portion of PBS.

Big Bird is NOT in danger of extinction ...

But perhaps Obama is ...

Dear, poor dear Eleanore,

It is Mr Romney who fluffed Big Bird.
What you say is true, but applies to Mr Romney; who can only tear down companies and sell off the pieces.

We don't need an elegant junkman in the White House.
Vote against ROmney. He says nothing, but works his class warfare against the American middle class.

ellllie, ROmney inanely commented about Big Bird in the debate - it was a stupid comment, it was unintelligent and - if we give him the benefit of the doubt - perhaps he was trying to be less stiff and more jokey wokey.

Perhaps ROmney believes Big Bird is a 47 percenter and should be outsourced/offshored to China! LOLL

Romney LIKES Big Bird, but he does not like the UNITED STATES borrowing MORE money from China.

Being fiscally responsible is a POSITIVE CONTRAST to Obama.

Obama-ites like to cling to easy things to remember, like Big Bird and 47%. They just don't understand WHAT IT MEANS (but they will repeat it over and over and over and over -- ad nauseum).

Big Bird appears on PBS.

If the government stops funding to PBS, the managers of Public Television will need to solicit more money than they already do with their telethon fund-raisers.

Romney is suggesting that government ROLL BACK on the money it spends. This has NOTHING to do with breaking PBS down and selling the pieces.

How can something so simple as de-funding PBS get to be so complicated?

Are there THAT MANY simpletons around?

It seems so!

The Big Bird issue is a deflection by the Obamaites to avoid discussing jobs and Libya.

How long will it last ?

Mr. Bill feels this will draw attention away from Obama's dismal record, Benghazi and $7 gas prices in California. Propaganda is powerful but not that powerful. He should study Goebbals some more.

The Obots are guzzling up the laughable Big Bird accusations.

Big Bird will survive on his own. He's too old to be on government funding. Sesame Street makes tons of money and the funds over 20 years should be repaid back to the government with interest so we can fight these terrorists.

As for Benghazi, first, the film turned out to be a 3 minute obscure video.

Then no one had even seen it, not even Barack, Hillary NOR the Libyan mob.

Then witnesses on the ground said there was NO mob. Attack was instantaneous.

The 5 hour stand off at the embassy by Libyan security was non-existent. The armed terrorists broke into the embassy within 15 minutes of arriving.

Then we find out there was no security at all at the embassy and the 4 hour defense was by two contracted ex-Seals defending a now known secret safe haven for embassy staff. Stevens was long missing already.

Then we find out the US ambassador wrote in his diary he was worried he was on a hit list and had warned the Barack Administration, asked for security detail.

Then we find out there had been threats on Facebook to the US embassy and in particular, to Stevens.

Then we find out there were more than just threats over a 3 month period. There were 3 bomb attacks and 3 other attempts.

Then as more information is found, the threats were over a 6 month period not 3, with 13 attacks not 6.

Then we find out not only did the administration ignore the Steven's pleas for help, they removed 16 US security defense personnel from the vulnerable embassy.

Then a few days later, as more information is obtained by the Oversight Committee, instead of 16 it was 32 US security defense staff flown out of Libya leaving the Embassy personnel in a panic.

Does this make any sense? In the face of rising threats, interpersed with actual attempts on the embassy, hit threats specifically on US ambassador Stevens, that an Administration removes 32 US security staff from them???

WTF?

Meanwhile Barack is quiet on the terrorist attack, choosing to attend Letterman to yuck it up. Mitt is furious and lays it out clearly with Barack that what happened in Libya to Stevens and US consulate staff is UNACCEPTABLE. A few days later, Jerk Store style, Barack attacks Mitt not the terrorists. He's more concerned about himself. Still goes on to the View and blames a lame short video he himself has never seen. Instructs FBI to capture the videographer and arrest him instead of dealing with terrorists in Libya.

Then we find out the Copt who made the amateur video is probably not a Copt because he has ties to Islamic terrorists.

BO is consorting with Islamists. Valerie Jarrett is an Islamic Iranian too as his closest connection. Both are in dangerous territory.

AMERICA NEEDS TO GET RID OF THESE DESPICABLE INFILTRATORS.

Take Huma too.

Yes!

Thank you for the link.

"Obama's use of Big Bird against Romney proved the president couldn't fight the Republican standard-bearer on BIG issues and so was resorting to the TRIVIAL."

SO VERY TRUE!

Obama seems to think that Big Bird connects with the maturity of many of his supporters.

If so, I'm in agreement with him for only the second or third time since his initial run for the Presidency.

The sad thing is that he's still running today:

Running away from his complete inability to utter his thoughts without needing to look at his teleprompter.

Running away from his responsibilities as President.

Running away from the truth about his inability and unwillingness to perform his duties as President (such as attending daily intelligence briefings, etc, etc).

Running away to his next lobster dinner, appearance on the View(!) or Letterman, game of golf or hoops, or his favorite pa$time of campaigning. This busy schedule leaves him with just enough time to make a few staged appearances in front of per-selected crowds of teenagers and the public assistance/sector types that love him so dearly.
