For Obama Big Bird is More Important than U.S. Embassies

Obama and Co. are making a big deal over comments Mitt Romney made about defunding Big Bird. “I love Big Bird,” Romney said “But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”

Our embassies are under attack, and Obama’s handlers are more concerned about a big yellow bird that’s worth millions of dollars. “[T]he Romney campaign released a devastating graphic that shows that since his debate debacle, Barack Obama has mentioned Big Bird and Elmo 13 times but has not mentioned Libya or his plan to fix the economy even once.”

All this attention to Big Bird has the folks at PBS concerned. They don’t like Big Bird becoming a political football. :

Sesame Workshop . . . issued a statement Tuesday saying “we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”

    Big bird and Elmo, two cartoon figures ovomit can relate to…the mentality of a child and we have those idiots who (first) elected him and those same idiots who want to re-elect him. No wonder America ranks 45th in education. The idiots running this country are more concerned with watching ‘toons’ than America’s safety.

    The President looks so stupid defending Big Bird when Big Bird is worth than he is. The simple fact is that he can’t depend his failed policies so he defends the Bird. People in his audience may laugh but the fact that he is not doing his job even now with the Libya situation that does not make me laugh. Calling the other candidate a Liar also makes him look small. They are calling for specifics but Romney gave them for all to hear and he also gave the specifics on what Obama stands for. So if Romney is wrong why isn’t the President not wasting a moment telling us why things didn’t work and why he thinks they will work now. He doesn’t because he can’t. His looked bad at the debate because he couldn’t defend anything not because he had an off day. The next debate he will surely ask Romney to be more specific when he has hidden everything from the American people including what was in Obamacare. He only took 1 or 2 good things about it and ran with it. I doubt that he thought that policy through and the American people will suffer for it. So Mr. President no matter how much they make you do your homework all you know is what is taught at the level of Sesame Street.

    Because he needed a way to divert from his shown treason (by not defending the embassies whatsoever)!

    Of course we have a program that we have all paid for and has made millions of dollars doing so. It might be nice to get a return on the taxpayers investment. High time for both NPR (national pubic radio run by lesbians) and PBS to go the way the Unions should. Flushed down the toilet of history out living their usefulllness.

  7. priorities, barry, priorities, yours are screwed up!

    There is no knowing what this idiot government is thinking whilst they continue to slobber and pant after the latte one

  9. This president may be bright but he is small-mided. Can you imagine a president of the greatest nation on Earth using a stupid big bird as a talking point to attack his opponent? Talk about juvenile behavior. My adolescent child has questioned his choice of object to rebut something that his opponent may have said to help our nation’ deficit. Similar to everything that everyone else is saying, (but is worth repeating), with all of other monumental issues affecting this country at this crucial juncture in our country, here is a president who uses the yellow creature on the Sesame Street to gain political points while having some idiotic followers laugh at his childishly immature references. No matter how desperate to prop up your standing in the poles, Mr. president, this is such a sad and sorry attempt to try to excite your followers.

    Even Axlerod and some of the other inept cronies could have given you a better advice.

  10. Pathetic, ain’t it? The supposed leader of the ‘free world’ stooping to grade school playground antics to keep his kool-aide sippers fat dumb and happy.
    And another point, why indeed does the taxpayer have to fork over millions every year to National PUBLIC Radio, etc, when they are making such profits already? Being called PUBLIC implies the thing relies on public donations from willing participants, not money coerced from unwilling taxpayers!
    Which Sesame street character best describes king zero? How ’bout “Alice Braithwaite Goodyshoes” (1969–1973) Called by Sesame Street’s early producers “an
    arrogant, sanctimonious know-it-all”, she frequently opened her segments
    by announcing, “This is Alice Braithwaite Goodyshoes, the smartest girl
    in the whole world!”

    Obama will spend trillions to defend Sesame Street, but not a cent to defend our embassies. Makes you wonder how he feels about defending our own soil.

    It’s time for these companies to make a profit or get out of the business
    and PBS does fund raising for the program, so it;s time to cut the apron strings,
    same with NPR time to defund them.

  13. Dark Knight says:

    Not to worry folks, in less than a month, the American voter will give this community organizer plenty of time to kick back so he can watch all the Sesame Street he can handle!
