    Watch Mika work hard to think of something to say and she comes up with, “Well, actually, it was Mitt Romney who brought it up.” Priceless. Shades of a kindergarten mind, “He started it, wah.”

  • Fire Barack

    NO, dammit! Listen to what Michelle said: Leave Big Bird alone and let the ad play!

    You teabaggers broached a dangerous place when you dared mess with Michelle and Barack’s intimate role-play icons. Mama Big Bird loves her little Elmo. You don’t mess with a Mama Big Bird and you don’t pick on her little blue man.

  • Fire Barack

    and correction above… Elmo’s red. Sometimes Barack likes to play the clueless Grover, like his speech this week where he said “Look, you can’t expect me to be perfect ALL the time. Sometimes I just gotta be Grover and muck things up.”

    Try and keep up Scarbrough; the ad is already off the air.

    OT — Zombie has some great photos of Obama’s visit to San Francisco. It looks like everybody is mad at him, for one reason, or another. Follow the links, and you can see the Tea Partiers cleaning up after the Obama crowd at the end.

    I think the Big Bird ad is Obama’s ‘jump the shark’ moment.

  • Gail

    OT – Martha Raddatz the moderator for the Debates tomorrow had a special wedding guest at her very own wedding……Barack Obama…..Unbelievable the deceit that goes on! Watch for the bias!

  • hermie

    The ad may be off the air but the damage is done. The Obama crew messed up and showed just how dumb they really are.

  • Objective Analysis

    I heard that after Obama did his first debate, he thought he won as reported by the The Daily Mail (UK). So they come up with Big Bird as a response AD.


    Unbelievable. yeah, his ass whooped and becomes Carter II. Nov. 6, here we come.

  • Granny

    The ad may be “off the air” but it is still all over facebook in one form or another – and a perfect opportunity every single time to point out that Big Bird is part of the One Percent with net assets last year of more than $232,000,000. And then there is the newest addition to the PBS line up, ready to get her cut at the government teat: One percenter Martha Stewart, who surely does not need us to borrow our children’s money from China to support her enterprise!

    I suspect that PBS wants Obama to shut up because when the facts are brought to light to the American people struggling to put groceries on that table and gas in the tank, the One Percenters who make their homes and livings at PBS and NPR are in danger of losing their handouts.

    President Obama cares so much about Big Bird that over the economy, gas prices, Libya, declining incomes, a faltering GDP, and a rise in poverty — the president’s dedicated his campaign mission to keeping the multimillionaire puppet on the government dole. Apparently, though, Obama doesn’t care enough about Big Bird to honor a request from the Sesame Workshop asking that an ad using Big Bird’s image be taken down:

    Following a request by PBS for the Obama campaign to take down its new attack ad featuring Big Bird, the campaign appears to be standing by the 30-second spot.

    Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs said on Wednesday that he was unaware of any efforts to take down the ad[.]

    But it gets worse:

    Jen Psaki, the Obama campaign’s traveling press secretary, followed a similar line on Tuesday. “There’s only one candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo, and he is riding on this plane,” she said

    If only President Obama had shown half as much passion and dedication towards protecting our people in Libya

    I want Romney in the next debate to demand the nation be shown and given explanations for the hiding of Obama’s original birth certificate (is he even eligible to be President?), his SSAN (why from Connecticut?), the passport used during his Pakistan trip (did he hold a non-American passport?), his college applications (did he claim foreign student status?), his college grades (mediocre?), and his Selective Service registration (fraudulent?), and why he lost his license to practice law. America’s deep-cover secret agents don’t have their identities protected like this, costing million$ to kept it hidden, using the power of the presidency to close access to public documents. This un-vetted non-American belongs in federal prison, not in our White House.

    Romney won’t tell story of meeting former SEAL killed in Benghazi after SEAL’s mom objects
    …BUT OBOZO continues to run his BIG BIRD ad even after BIG BIRD tells him to stop !!!!!

    The Big Bird d-cRAT FAT CATS….

    The woman who founded the Children’s Television Workshop, which created Sesame Street, is a maxed-out contributor to the Obama campaign and a significant donor to the Obama-backing Priorities USA Super PAC, campaign finance records show.

    Joan Ganz Cooney contributed the the maximum $35,800 to the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee, plus an additional $30,400 that could be distributed by the “Obama Victory Fund” to state parties. She then gave $50,000 to the Priorities USA Super PAC that is backing Obama’s re-election.

    Additionally, records show that Cooney gave $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corporation in 2011 and 2012 and $30,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2011.

    According to the latest Internal Revenue Service Form 990 financial disclosure that Sesame Workshop has made public, its total revenue for 2009 was about $130 million. Of that, about $7.9 million came directly from government grants.

    Big Bird gets program fees from stations, too. Sesame Workshop lists $27 million in content distribution revenue. Some of that comes from federal dollars funneled to local PBS entities, though the Form 990 doesn’t break that out.

    Uber-1%-er: Sesame Workshop president and CEO Gary Knell got $684,144 in reportable compensation from his job.

  • If Mika’s father wasn’t a big shot, she’d be a Waffle House waitress or dancing on a pole in a 4th rate club in Montana or North Dakota.

    Morning Joe on Obama’s Big Bird Attack Ad: “Get It Off the Air, It Shows Such Weakness”

    The fact that it shows weakness is an excellent reason to keep it on the air for a solid month.
