    "Cutting PBS support (0.012% of budget) to help balance the Federal budget is like deleting text files to make room on your 500Gig hard drive " - Neil deGrasse Tyson

    What Mitt said was brilliant and hilarious. He loves Big Bird and bashes partially government funded PBS at the same time. Love it. Look, get real. Take off your rose colored liberal glasses and really look at what he said. He said he isn't going to let the government fund PBS if it meant going further in debt to the Chinese. Who in their right mind would not totally support that. PBS can get funding other than from the government. He by no means said he wants the end of PBS. Stop trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. Your boy got his ass handed to him because he is stupid and lazy. Accept it.

    Romney failed to mention that he could cut BIG OIL subsidies, or tax breaks for all the corporations that pay 0 taxes; no, he goes to PBS.
    With Romney the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer - exactly the principles that George W. Bush put into practice.
    PLEASE GO VOTE, AND KEEP THIS MAN OUT OF OFFICE!

    This is all hypothetical but what will happen: they cut funding from PBS, PBS shuts down. Everyone makes a huge deal, "OMG I loved Sesame Street when I was younger" etc etc. Now, these people probably never watch PBS now. Everyone will make a huge deal to bring PBS back, and they will. They watch PBS for one day and forget about it.
    This world wants what's gone, and doesn't care when it's here.

    Go to thinkprogress.com to read the list of fabrications that Mitt Romney told during the debate.

    Straw man, people are so caught up on this silly thing trying to avoid how Romney stomped NObama. Looks like BOTH sides are notorious for not even acknowledging things.

    Blah Blah Blah…..oil subsidies!! Blah Blah Blah…..Tax breaks for all the corporations!! You fail to mention that Obama has been president for 4 years and those oil company subsidies & tax breaks continue. If they were so horrible and evil-why hasn’t Obama stopped them-surely if he can ram health care (among other things) down our throats, he could have stopped those subsidies. But you don’t seem to mind $90 Billion wasted on failed Green Energy Defunct companies-can you say Solyndra?? Why must the government fund a liberal outlet like PBS?? Can you name a conservative outlet the government subsidizes? Would you be ok with your tax dollars going to Fox News?? Think about it.

    Re: Closet ConservativeRe: Closet Conservative
    Solondra was igniated by Geroge W. Bush. When Obama came into office he finished the last step that was in place. If failed, Obama got blamed. Why did GWB get blamed for igin
    ating it?
    CHECK YOUR FACTS!

    Sesame Street as a brand won't die therefore Big Bird won't die. It's worth way too much.

    Obama was up against Republicans that swore a pact to prevent anything Obama proposed to be killed so he could not get re-elected. Paul Ryan chaired this pact. They stopped the American Jobs Act, etc. They are willing to kill democrazy and hurt Americans. That is the good ole GOP. They have nearly destroyed the middle class. If Romney gets in, they will finish it. Bush's 8 years is NO accident, it IS their agenda. They want ALL the money, they want everyone else to pay all the taxes. Listen to Romeny's 47% speech. He will kill Social Security, Medicare Medicaid.



  13. 13

    This whole "I'm voting Obama because Romney's taking away BIg Bird!" thing amongst people is scary and way out of context. It shows just how stupid most of the American public is. These people are just as dumb as those Obama phone voters. Sheesh.

    I'm happy to see that people are debating politics and important issues now rather the continuing and more idiotic by the day Lindsay Lohan saga or Chris Brown and his women. Love it!

    Obama had the congress and the senate for the 1st 2 years of his administration. he did not need any republicans to get any of his agenda done. he pased health care with no republican support as well as the stimulus….so please dont blame republicans. Obama could have closed gitmo-stopped the wire tappings-eliminated the bush tax cuts….he did not. i guess they were not as bad as all the liberals were whinning about for years!! YAWN…..Cant you whine about something else-like the intolerence of Islam and how they kill gays and treat women like dirt?? find your balls!

    Yes all you idiots please vote for Obama!

    Because I buy bankrupt houses, then turn around and rent them back … AND RENT IS SKY HIGH:)))))

    This Romney is rich and a dame good business man. The word today boys and girls is BUDGET. ONE MORE THING…. WHY DON'T PBS FUNDS GO TO OUR TEACHES, AND MORE ASSISTANTS SO OUR CHILDREN GET MORE THAN A PRESCHOOL EDUCATION.
    YOU PEOPLE ARE DUMB, REAL DUMB!!!!!!!

    Re: Closet Conservative – This argument has always been meaningless. At least 25% of all these "Democrats" are really Republicans. So no he could not do whatever he wanted. That's why the health care and stimulus bills were far weaker than anyone who supports Obama would have liked. He had to water everything down to get every last one of those votes. Thems the facts, son.

    If you want to fund Big Bird and PBS, then donate to them willingly of your own accord. YOU CAN DONATE WITHOUT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING YOUR MONEY AND DONATING. You can do that on your own. On your very, very own.

    idon'tbelieveyou, the Republicans that are blocking Obama, were elected by the people of this country in the midterm election 2010. They won those seats because Americans were outraged at Obama's out of control spending! The people voted and the spoke loudly that they wanted the spending to STOP! So sorry you don't like it that the whole fucking country isn't rolling over for Obama schemes! Get over yourself, maybe Obama the one with the problem, time to stop blaming and start compromising!

    That's the beauty of our amazing Democracy! Checks & balance! Thank GOD they were weaker-most of America opposes Obamacare….imagine if it did have everything Barry wanted!! Oh the horror! At least he got his "death panels" as he finally admitted lastnight while dear old (& hot!!) Mittens was wiping the floor with his (O's) sorry ass! ;)

    Re: NookiesWA – He may have been the better talker, but for all the talking he did, Romney didn't say shit about anything. He talked a lot, but they were empty words. He's going to drop taxes by 20% and not raise the deficit. Great…how? He's going to make sure schools have more funding? Great…how? He's going to fix health insurance? Great…how?



  22. 22

    Don't mess with PBS! Every year PBS holds several fund raisers for it's shows. I donate and several thousands of people do every year. Not help fund PBS?? WTF!!!

    Romney is a sociopath. He has been all his life. If America is dumb enough to vote for him they will get exactly what they deserve.



  24. 24

    This whole story is so out of proportion. This is politics at its worse - it's called an Obama deflection. Anything to offset the terrible job our incompetent president did at the debate.

    Re: boston61 – I hope so, a strong leader and a brilliant business mind is just what American deserves! Very immature to call the man a *psychopath. Do you have some secret access to his mental health records or are you just another name calling, wet diaper liberal?

    *please note the correct spelling of psychopath for your future reference.
