Obama uses Big Bird to attack Romney – UPDATE – Big Bird Gives Obama ‘the Bird”
Update – Obama’s house of cards and lies continue to fall down around him. First, the economist that wrote the paper which Obama is basing his ENTIRE attack on Romney’s tax plan, the $5T increase line from the debate, has told O to stop quoting him as that is a false conclusion. The AARP told O to stop using them as a campaign prop. And now, Big Bird.
Big Bird will not be anyone’s political puppet. Sesame Workshop has asked the Obama campaign to take down a new TV ad that prominently features the famous talking bird, in a satirical spot mocking Mitt Romney for calling for an end to PBS subsidies. “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and 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,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement.

They are so arrogant. They simply don’t get it. They lost the debate and will lose the election because they are out of ideas. They tired EVERY liberal play in the playbook and failed. They’re done. Yet they don’t see it. They see the new polling as a result of one bad night, not 4 horrid years. So sad. If he understood what really drove the polls, he would be focused on his vision for America, have real plans for our economy and be leading on foreign policy. Instead, he is hiding behind Big Bird and Elmo. Romney is running for President of the United States. Obama seems to be running for President of the Screen Actors Guild.
At the same time Team Obama released a childish ad hitting Mitt Romney for daring to consider removing multimillionaire, one-percenter Big Bird from the federal government welfare rolls, the Romney campaign released a devastating graphic that shows that since his debate debacle, Barack Obama has mention Big Bird and Elmo 13 times but has not mentioned Libya or his plan to fix the economy even once.
