I think Mitt Romney started the whole "Big Bird" thing.I saw
a CCN report Jeanne Moos: Mitt plucks Big BirdIt showed Mitt
Romney repeating his Big Bird line a half a dozen times BEFORE the debate and
various campaign rallies.Now he looks stupid, So he does what
Mitt Romney does best -- the 'ol Mitt Romney Flip-Flop-a-roo!
Does this show where this presidency has his priorities. My kids grew up on
Sesame Street -- it is a great show to teach kids. However, they run yearly fund
raisers that a lot of people contribute to, and they should be independent. I
don't know of other stations receiving public funding for their programs,
and I feel in the situation the country is in right now, this is one cut that
should be made. We can't keep spending like we have been, and I'm not
saying just the last 4 years, but Obama's office didn't seem to do
anything to reduce the spending. In the debate he didn't have anything to
say, and just stood there like a zombie -- and now his campaign is to save
"Big Bird". Anyone else see anything wrong with this. Big Bird
isn't what I'm concerned with, it's how I'm going to feed my
family, pay my mortgage, finish school. Aren't these important items to
Obama's campaign -- or is his campaign now, "never mind how you're
going to live, let's save Big Bird". Give me a break!!!
So by this, Mitt Romney has also vowed to kill KBYU and LDS General Conference,
Women's Conference, and BYU devotional broadcasts then too!
Big Bird does not need corporate welfare - That was the obvious and legitimate
point by Romney - PBS can survive without more government debtFor
Democrats and liberals to complain about the evils of corporate welfare, while
simultaneously advocating coporate welfare for a puppet that makes more money
than Mitt Romney and Obama combined, indicates hypocrisy at its worstObama's devolution into obsession with oversized yellow feathers
completes his shrinking into a small and insignificant president
Mitt, Big Bird is a concept BO can understand, unlike everything (except
campaigning) that goes with the job of POTUS. THAT's why BO is focusing so
much on Big Bird.LDS Lib,do you realize how desparate you
sound? mitt will shut down conference and KBYU! OH NO, the SKY is falling!!
Mitt scratches his head and Obama is over his head.
So $405 million a year to PBS is "corporate welfare" that should be cut.
How many billions in corporate welfare should we cut that currently goes to
McDonnell Douglas, ATK, Halliburton, and the rest of the military industrial
complex? Sounds like the classic case of straining at a gnat and
swallowing a camel. The gnat might be annoying, but it's the camel
that's breaking the budget.
