Obama

Romney Disses Little Kids

Over Nickelodeon Prez Show

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Not worth his time, kids don't pay taxes, they cost our country millions in tax credits, and that damn socialist public education,... they are the whole problem! Besides Romney knows most kids will call you out on a lie.

Hmmmm.....wonder if he told the kids that they owe $53,000 right now and when he is done spending their future away, they will owe even more.

These are of course those hard-hitting interviews Obama does, where he doesn't have to answer the tough questions and can lie without being challenged. **Sigh** hopefully we will have a real leader in 30 days.

PS: for those who think Big Bird is going to be taken away, maybe you should walk down the Target/Walmart aisle and then look up the revenue Sesame Street brings in, they don't need tax payer money - there's a sucker born everyday.....

PLEASE Obama wouldn't MISS being on TV.. now talking to world leaders while the Middle East is exploding... that's ok! Talk to the PM of Israel? NAH no time, ANY world leader while at the UN? NAH.. let's talk to Joy Behar instead. That's what u want in a president? Not me!

I watched Sesame Street for the 1st time in years the other day and I'm glad it's funding will be cut. I couldn't believe how it's changed. They have the same characters, but they were teaching the kids how to rap and dance to the rap music. That's not something toddlers need to learn at their age.

Romney is just pure racist trash. He don't care about no but himself and his stupid classless family. Its sad that with wealth, it can't buy you a brain or a back bone. He is so spineless and stupid. He thinks that since he won a crazy debate that he's on top of the world, but every was all LIES. He needs to pack up his campaign along with Paul Ryan , the droopy eye vice president and jump in a sewer and never be heard of again. He is a complete moron. Please go away Romney.

And thats the truth    

Kind of like when Obama was campaigning in Vegas after the 9/11 terrorist attack in which our Libyan Ambassador and 3 others were killed?

so it's not okay for Romney to not participate in this photo op, Celebrity showcase event, but it's okay for Obama to not show up for meetings with world leaders cause he's too busy campaigning? And I guess it would be okay that he insisted for so long that the terrorist attack at Benghazi on 9/11 was a result of a poorly made film? What a joke!
