Love the Obama got Bin Laden – Romney will get Big Bird. Just about his speed and will send in others to do the deed. He’s real ready to send anyone but his family off to war. How handy is that? Maybe Big Bird can take a Missionary trip to France or campaign for Mittens as Service to Country?

(2) Bill says:

Mitt told Jim Lehrer that he was going to cut funding for PBS even though he liked big bird. Good God. That man has as much audacity as it gets. Too bad kids, your screwed!

(3) Sparky says:

After Obama was trounced in the debate this is all you can come up with. PBS is the only liberal TV show that is publicly funded. We don’t want to see our taxpayer dollars flushed down the pot.

They say Romney “won” the debate last night…but I don’t call lying winning! OBAMA 2012

(5) Jen says:

I can’t believe he actually thinks that if you get rid of PBS and Big Bird that’s going to fix our debt@! Are you serious?

And like closing PBS doesn’t kill jobs.

What a moran.

PBS is only 8% federally funded. It’s not going to hurt anyone. Relax, folks.

(7) sandman says:

HAHAHA! Big Bird is in no danger of going away. Too many kids like him ;) Besides, PBS is a PUBLIC BROADCASTING STATION. The PUBLIC and grants funds way over 90% of its production!

(8) Heather says:

I don’t know how many more times Romney can put his foot in his mouth before he runs out of feet–what is he, a centipede?!–but the only thing better about Obama is his style. Don’t fall for it; these men are on the same side, and it isn’t ours. Check out their top donors and note the overlap. Obama wrote the indefinite detention clause in NDAA–check CPSAN video of Carl Levin (D)–and Romney got on national TV and proudy proclaimed his support for it. They’re both perfectly fine with starting more wars and murdering American citizens. If you vote for either of these men, you are part of the problem.
I hate to contradict the first meme, but this sh*t has been real for a while, and it’s time everyone started paying attention.

Big Bird doesn’t want to get laid off! He just endorsed Obama, a great spoof on The Goose – http://wp.me/p27mGo-h3

Heather, so are you going to vote for Ralph Nader again? That worked out well didn’t it?

(11) Seamoon361 says:

PBS does not get most of its money from the public. 72% of the budget of my station is people like me. Except for about 0.08%, the rest is foundations and giant corporations that are misbehaving.

(12) Jake says:

Way to seal the deal Mitt…

“We need to get better on Education in this country”…

so yeah lets start by CUTTING PBS!??!!?


Big Bird, 1; Romney 0….

This liberal/conservative concept comes from Fox News, G.W. Bush, the neocons… to divide those who are brain dead from those who have brains.

Congratuations, Sparky! Now may the Wizard grant you brain.

And don’t forge the war on Christmas, Sparky

Fact is most of the Federal funding goes to help out public broadcasting in areas like mine in flyover country where the population can’t easily support it. The loss of that funding would be devastating to the kids (and adults) in Red America.

@ Heather how do you ever form your mouth to even contemplate that “Obama is perfectly fine with starting more wars and murdering American citizens.” Heah check this out it’s Romney screamin’ “Libya, China ghot so-called weapons of mass-destruction,” then went on to say “And Russia we need to go over there too while we’re at it and deal with them and have war with them, too!”
Heather it was Obama who wants our “troops home and trying to get it acrossed that the Middle-Eastern Countries need to stand up for themselves and not America’s job to continue having our troops guarding their countries for them!” But your boyeee Mitt and Paul Ryan want to continue having our American Service People over there to die!
Heather it was Obama who just stopped not one (1) but two (2) different wars from happening between America and their countries!

Get facts straight before you open your mouth spilling studge, attempting to sound intelligent, but in reality you sound like na retard!
