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."

After kicking Obama's ass in the debate last week, Obama seeks refuge in the company of children.

If Obama wants photo-ops, fine. Romney is campaigning on issues. We'll see which tactic leads to victory next month.

TMZ showing your liberal bias again? Obama got his ass kicked in the debate and will get his ass kicked out of office on Nov. 6th.

Personally, I would like a president that cares more about the social and economic issues of America than being on The View or Nickelodeon. Obama is a Hollywood president, and that's it.

Obama skipped out on meeting with Netanyahu, so what the difference?

Barack Obama and the hateful Democrats are getting desperate. They no longer make sense to their own base.

I THOUGHT DEMS HATED THE TOP 1%

The characters on Sesame Street have generated HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars from merchandising! According to the 990 tax form nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 in compensation in 2008 alone, and has for decades. And, from 2003 to 2006 alone, ‘Sesame Street’ made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales.”

Are you sure that you want to pay this particular businessman millions every year using our tax dollars when he could produce the show on TV with other shows that get sponsorship from advertisers? Why are the taxpayers on the hook for this show? Its a scam.

Obama loves to divert attention with his useless causes. The children topic is a good one to hide behind, and if not that, Hollywood stars are always great camouflage. He's a real charmer with a crowd --alone not so much.

Look at all these people crying because Romney "blew off" the kids. You never heard a word from these concerned citizens when Obama blew off the Israeli PM. Which would you think to be the more important of the two?

Children cannot vote. Is this all you have today against Romney. Dem and Libs are petty idiots.

Maybe Romney was doing something constructive rather than going on very expensive vacations (on the taxpayer's dollar) with a cigarette in one hand and a beer in the other.

Had to chuckle about what "kids demand details" is saying about the average Romney voter.

Obama is acting like a spoiled brat. He didn't prepare. He lost. You don't turn a loss into a win by blaming the other guy for doing well. It's like a kid saying it's not fair that we have smart kids in class; they make me look bad. Obama and his cronies will stop at nothing to win, including sending his Acorn thugs out to intimidate the voters. Congratulations TMZ for being in the tank for Obama.

Obama is supposed to be running our country. He spends more time campaigning than doing his job.
