Like any entitled welfare addict, if you want to hear some squealing from Big Bird, all you have to do is hint that after decades of being on the government dole,  maybe it's time to get off the taxpayer teat and take care of yourself.

Heaven forbid.

Yeah however The money big Bird brings in doesnt go to PBS which is what Romney plans to cut. That money goes to the creator's and owner for Sesame street which is not PBS. A bit misleading there. At least that is my opinion.

Romney could use the charcters on sesame street to recruit children to become his minions.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Yes, but the idea that Big  Bird would go away if PBS were shut down is ludicrous.

How can you tell which spent dollars were borrowed from China?      No borrowed money goes to the immensely  bloated military / industrial constipation?    .. and Sesame Street dollars are all chinese debt?       do they look different?  

Mittens says he will  ask the question..  ' is this program worth paying for with money borrowed from China ?  '    ...  he's just promoting hack and slash fever.  He doesn't want to cut ANYTHING that profits the fat rats.

Since when 'Sesame street' teaching children to share is something "political" or politically charged to preach to children left-wing socialist propaganda? <_< The GOP should let their kids watch TBN or 'David and Goliath' made back in the 1960s no longer in production instead.

Most of PBS is funded by corporation sponsors donate their money to some programs and the network anyway. PBS is similar to yet different from government-sponsored channels (the BBC, CBC, France 2, NHK, Televisa and so on) to receive donations except PBS isn't owned by governments. TBN is based on callers' donations the same way like PBS in their pledge drives...and anyone can start up a privately-owned publically-funded TV station, like religious-themed networks refusing any government funding.

PBS got 26.65 million in 2012 from the money that goes to The Corporation for Public Broadcasting.  I'm sure cutting that would make a HUGE difference on a 3.7 trillion dollar budget.......

Even an average debater should have picked up on this stupid remark. Obama's impromptu skills were at ZERO during this debate, and may be all the time, if you believe all the teleprompter jokes.

If you can make the audience laugh at your opponents plan, you can have no plan and still win a debate.

We already know this government is hopelessly broken and on life support, likely until the bitter end. The last thing we need is to be reminded of it, except perhaps in the past tense, which is what Clinton did at the Convention. That generates some hope without lying.

I would have laughed and replied, "Big bird?" <Pause> "I guess he's one of the 47%" The debate would have been over and Obama would have been declared the victor, but he is way too slow on the draw.

He needs to fire his debate team and bring in some fresh blood ... to include a few comedians to teach him some impromptu skills ... if that's possible.

The country needs to laugh right now, a lot more than it needs to cry over numbers that mean nothing to the average person.

This is a ridiculous thing to worry about. Anyone remember that shizz is still getting real in the Middle East? And we're worried about some guy in a giant yellow bird costume? American priorities!

So the guy with the best one-liners and zingers = the guy most qualified for the most important job in the country?

This country has been laughing for waaaaayy too long, and needs to sober up and take a serious look at the "numbers that mean nothing to the average person" or we will be crying for decades to come.

Half the economic battle is confidence. Corporations are sitting on a trillion in cash, and holding the country hostage. Those are the numbers I want to hear, not how cutting education, including to Big Bird is part of the problem.

If we spent half the money wasted by the Republicans in Iraq and Afghanistan, on educating our young people, we would devastate the enemy without firing a shot.

Money spent on education isn't socialism; it's how you build a future through confidence.

Romney thinks half the American people are slaves, with little or no interest in improving themselves. He is wrong. We all have dreams, we all want better lives. That's the human capital you invest in. Invest in the dreams of slaves, and the engine will roar to life.

So what if China stops loaning U.S. money. I'm sick of buying their products anyway. If there's one thing I learned from the Asians, it's that business is war. I vote we declare bankruptcy and let them cry.
