    So $405 million a year to PBS is "corporate welfare" that should be cut. How many billions in corporate welfare should we cut that currently goes to McDonnell Douglas, ATK, Halliburton, and the rest of the military industrial complex?

    Sounds like the classic case of straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. The gnat might be annoying, but it's the camel that's breaking the budget.

    Mitt scratches his head and Obama is over his head.

    Mitt, Big Bird is a concept BO can understand, unlike everything (except campaigning) that goes with the job of POTUS. THAT's why BO is focusing so much on Big Bird.

    LDS Lib,

    Big Bird does not need corporate welfare - That was the obvious and legitimate point by Romney - PBS can survive without more government debt
    For Democrats and liberals to complain about the evils of corporate welfare, while simultaneously advocating coporate welfare for a puppet that makes more money than Mitt Romney and Obama combined, indicates hypocrisy at its worst
    Obama's devolution into obsession with oversized yellow feathers completes his shrinking into a small and insignificant president

    So by this, Mitt Romney has also vowed to kill KBYU and LDS General Conference, Women's Conference, and BYU devotional broadcasts then too!

    Does this show where this presidency has his priorities. My kids grew up on Sesame Street -- it is a great show to teach kids. However, they run yearly fund raisers that a lot of people contribute to, and they should be independent. I don't know of other stations receiving public funding for their programs, and I feel in the situation the country is in right now, this is one cut that should be made. We can't keep spending like we have been, and I'm not saying just the last 4 years, but Obama's office didn't seem to do anything to reduce the spending. In the debate he didn't have anything to say, and just stood there like a zombie -- and now his campaign is to save "Big Bird". Anyone else see anything wrong with this. Big Bird isn't what I'm concerned with, it's how I'm going to feed my family, pay my mortgage, finish school. Aren't these important items to Obama's campaign -- or is his campaign now, "never mind how you're going to live, let's save Big Bird". Give me a break!!!

    I think Mitt Romney started the whole "Big Bird" thing.

    I saw a CCN report
    Jeanne Moos: Mitt plucks Big Bird

    It showed Mitt Romney repeating his Big Bird line a half a dozen times BEFORE the debate and various campaign rallies.

    Now he looks stupid,
    So he does what Mitt Romney does best -- the 'ol Mitt Romney Flip-Flop-a-roo!
