Romney zinged Obama this morning over the fact that the economy is terrible and people are hurting, yet he’s spent the last week talking about saving Big Bird:

    Well, I guess a cartoon character is more important to Obozo than America is. Talk about priorities!!!

    • Orangeone

      Big Bird is easier to manipulate, re-educate, RFID chip, starve, and control.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VVZODHFH7JZH7YGYOHGY6P7DY4 JR Dogman

        I don’t know — sometimes Big Bird can be pretty damned smart:

        • Rightstuff1

          Hey JR that was great!!! Loved it !!

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VVZODHFH7JZH7YGYOHGY6P7DY4 JR Dogman

            Yeah, that’s a great one, isn’t it? I laugh every time I watch it. People are really creative.

        • Orangeone

          I love this video!

      • loriannringold

        LOL
        That is so right on.

      • smmy33

        Romney doesn’t mention the debt enough, he should have also said last week the US added another 1.1 trillion dollar defict, making the debt almost 6 trillion added under Obama in one term….. Debt…. debt and the crisis in foreign policy.

        And he should hit the unemployment numbers, that for every 1 peron who was able to get a job in the last 4 years 6 others have left the labour force, And that it is a disgrace when a administration is celebrating 7.8 % unemployment, and a nation of part time Mc jobs.

    • Boris_Badenoff

      He is only doing what he knows best..

  • Clevername1234

    I need to hear Stef Cutter’s response to this. I need a good laugh.

  • iaintlyin

    Seeing the reaction that the left gives to Romneys remarks, maybe now is the time he should bring up college Transcripts or the fast and Furious documents?

  • rsox1

    Absolutely perfect response. The Obama campaign has really stepped in it by focusing on Big Bird.

    • Orangeone

      And Sesame Street has given O’Bambi the BIG BIRD by telling him to stop using BB in his ad.

      Oh Scoop, I feel a PhotoShop contest coming….

      • MiketheMarine

        I put a link to that very story above. We are on the same page.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Too funny!

    • BlueGood

      I suppose Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 dead Americans would have had more protection if they were yellow cartoon characters……heck they might even have been saved!~

      “O’Bama bin Lyin” just doesn’t give a schit for anything except himself….

      • Boris_Badenoff

        You know that is a pretty sad statement, mainly because it is true..

        I never thought I would dislike someone as mush as I dislike Hillary, but obama has disproven that theory easily.

        Obama simply is a grade A A-Hole.

    • Rightstuff1

      I think their campaign is awful – tired/old and now stupid too. This is desperation. You see it wasn’t supposed to be like this. Romney wasn’t supposed to take the fight to the man-child. He was supposed to be a supine figure, to wit, a punch bag.

      When Romney came out swinging and holding the man-child’s feet to the fire the libs entire campaign strategy literally fell apart.

      Now they are flailing about like a demented being off their drugs for a few days.

      They are hurting and they know they are in trouble. Doesn’t it just warm the cockles of your heart :-) ???

      • anotherworriedmom

        Yes. I am getting the popcorn ready for Thur. Go Paul Ryan!

      • white531

        Something to keep in mind, is the audience they are playing to.

  • PicklePlants

    Simply, brutally direct.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MJGP4QXZ5PRW2MFA5E25CV2WNU rosalie

    That’s a good one. The adult vs. the man-child.

  • Aikalo80

    Im tired of hearing Libs asking for more and even more details of Romney’s plan. Hell they accepted “Hope and Change” without any details.

    • NYGino

      Romney sure gave them details about his foreign policy position in his speech yesterday. Be careful what you wish for libs, it’s gonna hurt!

    • Tiffini

      I feel the same way, I wonder why they expect more from a candidate Romney than they do from a President Obama?

      • NYGino

        You always expect more from the brightest person than you do from the biggest dunce.

        • Tiffini

          That explains it and you nailed how most of us feel about Obama. well played.

    • http://www.royaldukedesign.weebly.com/ SilentTexan

      yeah, for some reason, libs seem to lose the ability to hear whenever a republican speaks about anything that doesn’t make Obama look good. :P

  • MiketheMarine

    And now Sesame Workshop has told Maobama’s campaign to stop using them in his ads. Awesome, even the bird gets it.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/09/obama-campaign-deploys-big-bird-in-new-ad/

  • Aikalo80

    Obamas latest ad is using Big Bird, Sesame Street is asking Obama campaign to take it down hahahaha

  • Sober_Thinking

    Good comment.

    Hmmm… Big Bird is a puppet… Obama is a puppet… See where I’m going with this?

      • Sober_Thinking

        I won’t lie… ;)

  • CalCoolidge

    Are Republicans allergic to using the term “corporate welfare?” Big Bird is in the top one percent. He’s worth millions.

    • http://twitter.com/lorien1973 lorien1973

      Totally. Wish Romney would segue big bird into a more cohesive theme of ending corporate welfare and crony capitalism.

        Give him a break Lorien….can you not just appreciate something without something to add….gee! Do you think you would do it all perfectly? Try it?

      • CalCoolidge

        This is exactly what expses the liberal lie of being for the little guy. They are taxing the little guy and giving the money to this rich corporation.

    • mike3e4r7

      I like that!

  • Patriot077

    I guess Zero would rather we think about Sesame Street than the Global Taxes they are talking about over at the UN. This is actually from 9/28 but I didn’t see it until today

  • BHliberty

    Nice! Gov. Romney puts it all in perspective!

  • NYGino

    AARP admonishes Obama about using them in his campaign, Kidd Rock and other entertainers disavow him and admit he’s not “the One” and now even Big Bird tells him to take a hike. His base is receding faster than the shoreline before a tsunami strikes, which, by the way, will happen November 6.

  • http://twitter.com/MarthaChandler9 Martha Chandler

    Is this the best that BO can come up with? Sad.

    • anotherworriedmom

      Look squirrel!

  • CincyAnna

    Obama is an absolute loser, steeped and marinated in the notion of his own perceived greatness. It will be his undoing. This Big Bird nonsense is the perfect illustration of the cards that are in the hand of these stupid Democrats. The sum total of what they have to run on….which is nothing.

  • sjmom

    Has Big Bird been put on the endangered species list and is this why Obama is obsessed with him or is it a childhood dream to become Big Bird? Will we ever know? I hope not.

  • wodiej

    lol…good one.

  • mike3e4r7

    Zing!

    By the way, I was just listening to Rush Limbaugh, and he was talking about an article that was written by some newspaper in the U.K., where they are reporting that Obama actually thought he had won the debate as he was walking off stage last week. That’s how clueless he is. He also talks about how much Obama really hates Romney. Maybe Scoop can link to that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/wayne.parsons.52 Wayne Parsons

      I agree with Rush, Im sure the Narcissist in Chief is the only person on the planet who thought he aced it. And he says Mitt is out of touch?

    • anotherworriedmom

      BO made the statements 2 years ago that he knew more about everything than his inner circle of advisors. So of course he assumed that since everyone else also knows this, all he had to do was show up, recite his talking points, be declared omnipotent by the MSM and he’s done. Oops. Gov Romney was also there and apparently he didn’t get the memo.

      • mike3e4r7

        His arrogance knows no bounds.

  • kong1967

    He’s right, but the Obama campaign is trying to keep the focus away from the issues and push the image that Romney is a mean guy. A lot of libs think with their hearts, not with their brains.

  • http://www.facebook.com/wayne.parsons.52 Wayne Parsons

    Its so obvious now, this guy gets it, the fraud in the White House doesnt. Same clown who went to Vegas fundraiser while our Ambassador was being dragged thru the streets of Benghazi, I can just see the phone ringing and ringing and ringing at an empty desk and chair in the Oval Office, clearly nobody home!

    • anotherworriedmom

      Oh no. O answered the phone with “you don’t need extra security” and then went to a fundraiser in Vegas.

  • http://www.facebook.com/VaBhodi Darrell Griffin

    I’m jacked up about the next two debates. I want Obama to bring his A-Game. I want Liberalism exposed for 65 Million people again !!!! and again !!!!!! and again !!!!!

    THAT’S how you change the nation. When you expose liberalism for what it is, you destroy it. Reagan and our parents did it for us in 1980. Now it’s our turn to return the favor for our children.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. “—Ronald Reagan

  • jukin

    The adult versus the narcissistic petulant child. Way to go Mitt!

    I think everyone understands why we will NEVER see Obama’s college transcripts.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    romney at least has a plan, many plans, he seems to have a grasp on foreign affairs, stands with Israel, he may not have been the leader I would have chosen, but he does have leadership skills, barry has NONE. nov 6th 2012 time to vote barry out.

    • http://www.facebook.com/VaBhodi Darrell Griffin

      I have to be candid and say that my initial assesment of Romney may have been wrong.

      When Ann Coulter said Romney was “the most conservative candidate in the race” I did a triple take followed by a facepalm. She might have been on to something.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        His record in MA says she wasn’t. But I’m glad he chose someone with a solid pro-life and pro-marriage record as his running mate!

  • conservocop

    It could be that big bird is fat and squat at the bottom because that’s where the Sesame street earnings are stashed – and I bet the annual net would blow your mind.

  • http://twitter.com/Stabbers1 Stabbers

    Right on, right on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Maybe if Big Bird started talking about the fiasco in Libya, Obama and the White House would at least start talking about it. Maybe that’s what it takes to get Obama engaged in a conversation about a really important topic. It takes Big Bird? God help us.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    LOL……just shows everyone how disconnected/detached obama is; little wonder why our economy isn’t going anywhere fast.

  • 2yves

    Go Mitt Romney Go! Even though he wasn’t our first choice to knock Obama out, we are rallying behind him 100%.
    If Mitt Romney and congress don’t behave themselves, then there will be a lot more knocking out in 2014 and 2016!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Zepp1978 Mike Kerns

    When did Gov. Romney get funny all of a sudden? He couldn’t make a good joke in the Primary to save his life. Great to see.

  • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

    The Obama Administration seems to care more about Big Bird than they do about real Americans in harms way… You know like Ambassador Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty and Sean Smith, who are now really dead.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/6TFSBPXVSCDIMIGDESK63L4VKY Michael

    Even the left wing bloggers and MSM are shelling Obama over the Big Bird Ad…DISASTER!!!! SOS!! Battleship Stupid! Big Bird highlights the fact that OBAMA has nothing to offer…nothing! With serious issues before our nation the Marxist uses an ad that touts a Million Dollar Bird??? How pathetic and foretelling….You see Mitt talking the Big Issues that matter and Obama is reduced to a Canary Yellow Imaginary Bird for Defense? And even Sesame Street has called out Obama to stop using Big Bird! The left is in meltdown over this because it is adding the narrative of Obama’s Incompetence!!

    Chuch Todd was almost crying begging Obama to get rid of the Ad….reminds people of his horrible debate performance!! Sorry Chuck….Obama is an abject failure…Big Bird just puts an Exclamation Point on it!

    • anotherworriedmom

      Oh but O had sent the memo to the MSM that it was time to attack Gov Romney over Big Bird. Maybe they can see that as the losing strategy that it is. Which explains why they didn’t buy it. No one did. Except BO. Jeez he is really really not that smart.

    And Obama does the hard core interview with Nickelodeon!

  • 2besusie

    To add insult to injury, the WH has held no press briefings in the last 15 days (Drudge), but Obama also has time to appear on Nickelodeon.

    Between Big Bird and Nickelodeon, Obama has devolved into the pre-school president.

    Amazing “nice” attack on ovomit- (sesame street brings in $100s of millions a year). Romney is so right, big bird doesn’t need to eat, and will be just fine- its Americans who are hurting. Romney/Ryan take it home- to the white house.

  • victorykd

    The Big Bird flap is hilarious!

    Obama, the petulant child carries on about Big Bird. Meanwhile, the adult in the house Governor Romney, explains the important issues.

    • Boris_Badenoff

      What you do when you got nothing.. In the messiah’s own big mouth..

      hey I actually agree with the POS.

      • victorykd

        Thanks for link and it was really good for a laugh. The Romney camp could use it in an ad.

  • white531

    Not to put a wet blanket on all the fun we are having with this, but Big Bird and Sesame Street, are both the anchor symbol and PBS program that most Liberals hold dear. PBS represents everything Liberals believe in.

    “We are all citizens of the World. We all have to get along, in a wonderful rainbow coalition of multi-culturalism. We have to teach the little children, from the day they are born, that they have to respect the earth, and all the animals, and all the insects, and especially, all the communists who look out for their welfare.”

    That is what PBS does, and that is what Sesame Street does, and that is what Big Bird does.

    I don’t know if you caught it today, but Glenn Beck did a segment today on his radio show, about the way our Educational system has been corrupted and taken over by the Communists and Liberals.

    It was a really good show. If you missed it, you can find it in the archives.
    We’ve gone over this before. If you want to control the way a nation thinks, don’t start with the old farts. Because they’re not gonna buy your bullshit. Start with the children, and then follow them all the way through Graduate School with more bullshit.

    The point of Glenn Beck’s program today, was that it isn’t just that we are graduating these kids through our educational system, and turning out new Liberals on a daily basis.

    No, if that was the only problem, we could probably get a handle on it, and turn it around. The actual problem, is that we are already into the second generation of the Communist plan from the sixties.

    The college professors, who are teaching our children today, are the ones who are doing the damage. They are the ones who were indoctrinated into the program early on, and now they are ones who are teaching our kids.

    Our Educational system is corrupt, beyond all measure. We no longer teach History. We no longer teach Fine Arts, or even appreciation of Art. We no longer teach our children what it means to be a citizen of this country. We no longer teach our children what it means to be a Patriot, and how many Patriots died, to protect their Freedom.

    Most high schools in this country, no longer give classes on The Constitution. Just like Obama, they consider it a worthless instrument. Outdated by current events, and no longer relevant.

    If that is what you believe, then this great experiment, that has lasted over two hundred years, is pretty much over.

    If that is not your belief, then we need to fight to turn this thing around. It is certainly possible, but not guaranteed.

    I am enjoying the recent success that Romney seems to be having. I hope it continues through the election. I believe he would change the direction of this country, if elected.

    The alternative, is unthinkable.

  • A_Truism

    O can relate to Big Bird because he is a big bird. Yellow all over.

  • nightshadow2012

    Even Big Bird has told obummer that he doesn’t have permission to use BB… I guess that just about says it all!

  • Boobie_The_Rocket_Dog

    If Obozo worried about saving Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Yosemite Sam or even Ralph Bakshi’s stable of characters, he’d be likely to milk more votes out of the effort.

    Big Bird is a senior citizen and a fruity one at that.

  • wmath44

    America ask Obama, Is that all you’ve got?

  • Butch Covell

    Michelle Obama cutting Sesame Street is no way to balance the budget.
    So cutting oBAMA will work.
