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."

Kids or Obama supporters whats the difference? Appalling how many people haven't a clue what a failure this President's economic policies are. Amazing.

Why does it matter? They should both be focused on the people that can actually vote.

TMZ can't seem to stick to entertainment anymore. It's become arrests and fights with peeps we don't even care about or even know who they are. Now politics....

I'm surprised Obama had time. He must have fit it in between appearing on The View and Jimmy Kimmel's show. Romney has more on his plate, like trying to get elected so this boob doesn't screw up the country anymore. The Nickelodeon kids will understand one day, you know, when they can find a job.

Who gives a crap what kids think when it comes to the future of this country? They are still mentally developing this is just a tv show for ratings. Who cares if Mitt didn't have time? He probably didnt. And kids don't need to have their voices heard when it comes to who runs the country. Next kids will also be dictating dinner time and cell phone plans.

Well, let's see. A month to the election and he is going to waste his time answering questions to to an audience that cannot actually vote? It's like making fun of Romney because he refuses to campaign in Toronto.

Truth    

Romney is a serious person. Obama is a celebrity. Big difference in the two, and it's why Obama will lose.

please stop the propoganda. Where was the outrage when obama didn't meet with the Israel prime minister. Just a tad bit more important but he was busy in Hollywood schmoozing up with the liberal crowd. What hypocrisy.

Let me get this straight, Obama has time to answer little kids questions, but not meet with foreign leaders or his daily meetings?! Priceless!

last time i checked, little kids can't vote. going on a meaningless program is what obama is best at. the view, letterman etc. crap shows where he gets softball questions from people who already adore him.

Well, kids don't pay taxes, and they don't have their own bank accounts (unless their wealthy parents set them up), so they aren't relevant. There is nothing Romney can do to make them accept personal responsibility, so he doesn't care about them.

Save Big Bird now! Romney may like to fire people, but Big Bird isn't a person. Why fire America's favorite bird?

I've been through 13 presidents. The rhetoric never changes. If you think your man is going to make your life better...you know very little about politics. This is 2012, 224 years after Washington held the first presidency and the political community at almost every level has become a clusterf*ck of chaos.

I wonder if the kids asked Obama who Karl Marx is? Stop being sheep. Obama didn't bounce back. He is a liberal in a liberal media. The media are playing PR for him b/c he can't speak without a script.

That's all Obamas got? I'm glad we're about done with him.
