Romney slams Obama
for talking Big Bird

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/9/2012 2:10:51 PM

Mitt Romney on Tuesday slammed President Obama for talking about Big Bird on the campaign trail. "These are tough times, with real serious issues. So you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about Big Bird," Romney said at a campaign event in Iowa. "I actually think we have to have a president who talks about saving the American people." (Snip) The fight over the yellow puppet, a popular figure on the Sesame Street, came to ahead on Tuesday when Obama's campaign released a hard-hitting ad attacking Romney for his remark on cutting PBS

Comments:
Even Sesame St. has told 0bama's campaign to cease and desist using their trademarked character. So what character will the 0bama campaign try to steal next? I suggest the appropriate Wile E. Coyote.

Big Bird is rich.
Big Bird does not need our taxpayer borrowed Chinese money.
And yet Obama is so desperate to slosh slush money to PBS that he sent them $1 million out of the failed stimulus.

With Obama it is all about the slush.

Awww, but the only voters obama can really count on are people with a brain like "big bird's", so he HAS to give him "props". Grownups are going to take back our Country in November! You go, Romney/Ryan!

Kudos to the Romney Campaign. Call liberals/ Dems what they are - silly, pointless and shallow. They are people who believe Big Bird is an issue (when millions of Americans are having trouble filling their gas tanks).

Their get their political opinion from late night comedians, and believe that SNL performers and Hollywood actors are perfect political advisors. (As I have said before, on the right we might like Larry the Cable Guy, but we don't look to him for any serious advice...)

They are shallow, silly, pointless people with limited knowledge and even less good sense.

Sessame Street has requested the Zero Campaign stop running the ad.

I am feeling very twitchy over "The fight came to ahead on Tuesday." Apparently editors are out of work as well in this economy.

Aside from that, I think it was a fantastic response by Romney.

I think this was a deliberate rope-a-dope by the Romney campaign. They must have known that Zero would respond like a complete blithering idiot (but perhaps not to this extent). The retort, of course, is that Big Bird will do just fine without the subsidy.

I am not surprised that Sesame Street has requested ad be pulled. They do not want anyone looking in to their billion dollar franchise that receives tax dollars.

FTA: “…when Mitt Romney says that he’ll reduce the deficit and pay for $5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans by getting rid of PBS and Big Bird…”
That statement sums up the intellectual ability of team 0-bama. There is not one single item there that is accurate, and anyone who witnessed the debate knows it.

0-bama simply has nothing to say, so his campaign repeats clichés – assuming you are just as stupid as they are. Romney utterly dismantled 0 on this topic, and this days-later retort is grade school lame. 0 is so outgunned that he has resorted to hiding behind an oversized toy tweetie bird while reciting feeble rejoinders that someone else wrote out for him using small words.

Meanwhile Ambassadors are being killed, middle east ready to go up in flames, gives Israel the middle finger, economy ready to implode, too many others to include with this list, and we are worried about the Big Bird, yeah OK!!

MA Senate: Elizabeth
Warren Defeats Scott Brown
Townhall, by Daniel Doherty    Original Article

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN Reports Romney Internal
Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Obama adviser: 'They'll be counting

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

No surprises for Obama,
Romney in early projections

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
