Obama

Romney Disses Little Kids

Over Nickelodeon Prez Show

President Obama's peeps say Mitt Romney is gonna be sorry for blowing off a bunch of kids who participated in the Nickelodeon show, "Kids Pick the President."

The premise of the show -- kids submit questions to each candidate and based on the answers they make their pick for leader of the free world. 

Obama answered the kids' questions, but Romney said he didn't have the time.

Deputy National Press Secretary Adam Fetcher tells TMZ, "It's no surprise Romney decided to play hookey. Kids demand details, and I'm sure they want some answers on why Romney could increase their class sizes, eliminate their teacher's jobs, raise taxes on their families and slash funding for Big Bird."

Fetcher ends with this zinger: "'The dog ate my homework' just doesn't cut it when you're running for President."

Why would he turn that down? Obviously, it's not something that will effect a campaign and little kids cannot vote.

But, it really is a great way introduce politics to kids. And they do surprisingly ask great questions that the media refuses to!

KIds can't vote for real so it doesn't really matter.

MAYBE OBAMA SHOULD SHOW THOSE KIDS HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS THEY MIGHT ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND THEM SINCE HIS HENCHMAN HAVE HIDDEN THEM FROM THE VAST SEGMENT OF AMERICA THAT WOULD ACTUALLY REMOVE HIM FROM THE PRESIDENCY.

It's okay for Nobama to blow off the PM of Israel when he's busy appearing on Letterman, but he's going to dog Romney for not having the time for 'Kids Pick the President'? A bit hypocritical!

Man, I can't wait until Obama and his crew are out of office and I wish TMZ would stop reporting this type of juvenile news. Let's not forget how Obama dissed Israel. Funny how that's forgotten...

If PBS is so popular. Why do they need government aide. Run it for profit.

Oblunder has time for everything. Well, except a budget, a domestic energy policy and non-union employees.
