I agree, not so many laugh with him anymore
well, one must admit Romney was attempting to be glib...
... when he said he was going after Big Bird, so why shouldn't the President use it against Romney?
As it is, I have already seen memes on the web making fun of Romney's campaign against Big Bird. Apparently going after a childhood icon is resonating with a lot of people. Maybe Romney can kick a puppy next, to show how tuff he is on PETA ?
"why shouldn't the President use it against Romney"
Because he is embarassing himself with his cheesy cheap shots?
in your opinion.
You are entitled to your own opinion, no matter how wrong it may be.
People can have wrong opinions?
That's a new one on me.
We had a member here some years ago....
....who for decency's sake I won't name. He insisted, quite seriously, that the statement "Hillary is a b***h" was a statement of fact and not opinion.
EdH was also notorious for declaring other people's opinions "wrong."
... it is my opinion that Lyle's opinion is 2 bricks shy of a belfry... wait, I mean , well , you get the idea...
And Josh? You just compared me... to Ed ?
OMG... I need to change my ways.
Well, I thought the president had turned to
offering mockery instead of substance thereby entertaining his audience rather than being informative. To be fair, this was only a short piece of his address and not the whole of it. Perhaps the crowd needed a wake-up joke to get their attention. It's been a long campaign and hearing the same thing over and over gets boring at times. Folks won't need to worry about his jocularity if he's re-elected. It won't be funny anymore.
Some people are of the opinion that the Holocaust never
happened. In England there is still a Flat Earth Society. Some people in Russia would like a return of Communism.
Of course opinions can be wrong, when they're not supported by facts.
Still, Romney made it...
During thel debate and the mention of de-funding PBS
I thought he was being honest forthright even knowing that some would cringe. Such is why he added that he liked Mr Lehrer and Big Bird. People were hounding him for specifics. They got one right in front of a national audience and even though it wasn't going to be popular. I need to respect him for his honesty.
The truth is Sesame Street gets very little gov't funding
Most of their expenses are covered via private sources. But we in the "Save Sesame Street" campaign will not have our strategy dictated by fact-checkers.
I read that too
and they make a ton on merchandising. The Sesame Street program is essentially one big commercial, isn't it? They could be paying their own way and writing off any airtime charges as a charitable deduction.
Wasn't it National Public Broadcasting
the company that got so much heat for firing a liberal (Juan Williams) for making the comment that even HE is fearful of Muslims getting on a plane with him (FoxNews hired him immediately)? When taxpayers are paying even a part of the funding for public broadcasting, those funds should be taken away for being politically swayed either way....this is why Planned Parenthood is such a sore spot with liberals as well.
Romney isn't against the existance of PBS
He just wants it to become a commercial network and pay its own way.
Romney flipped the Bird the Finger?
