Romney Disses Little Kids

Over Nickelodeon Prez Show

10/8/2012 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 should he waste his time answering questions from children who can't vote when he could be campaigning and get the votes of people who can? I wuld do the exact same thing. **** the kids. When what they think matters, then maybe I'll care what they have to say. Until then, they're a waste of my time,

All multi-millionaires and billionaires must vote Mitt Romney for true representation in the federal government they already control anyway.

Money matters.

The commoner s*** 90-plus percent need to OBEY their socio-economic betters.

Some people actually thought that NObama won the debate. I think they must have been watching the one in 08. The VP debate is going to be most entertaining. I think Biden should just have the hichair show up in his place. He's gonna wish he had. It's going to be an embarrasing night for the NObama administration.

LOL... okay, let me get this straight... LOL President Obama blows off a meeting with Egyptian President and the Israel President to go play golf with Letterman and then blows off a meeting regarding the middle east attack to go chat up the gals on the view and the Prez's peeps are going off on Romeny for missing a kids event. LOL.. sorry, but I can't stop laughing. Dudes gotta go....LOL Oh yea, and his 'teleprompter' wasn't working at the debate. Teleprompter...WTH. It's a DEBATE... not allowed Mr. Prez... LOL

You seem to be denying the fact that each of those kids has two voting parents.

Way to get to the real issues Obama campaign. Maybe Big Bird should replace Biden as VP.

Willard and his wealthy group are plotting the movement to a corporate and military run government, effectively creating a feudal system.
A system where most of us are forced to work for whatever the ruling class decides to pay us.
No unions and no government protections.
desease causing aer and water quality and no college funding.
Listen to your grifter Willard and what programs he will cut and underfund.
Then you folks can continue to march in lock step behind him to your graves.

I would worry about that "the dog ate my homework when your President" comment,

They should be more worried whether the current President ate their Dog!

Its funny... Obama has time to meet with kids who can't vote, make jokes with David Letterman, and party with Jay-Z and Beyonce... but never seems to have time to meet with our allies or prepare for debates to answer the real questions adults who pay taxes, and are struggling to sustain their families, need to know.

You know else should realize that he doesn't have time for that? The preezy of the steezy. I don't give a crap if he goes on Nickelodeon, I do care about our murdered Ambassador and the alarming state of out economy. What a bunch of losers. WAH! Romney wants to fire Big Bird! Uh, Yeah, because between him and Elmo's revenues, I don't see why they should be funded by the taxpayers anymore - hell, Dora's not and she does okay! Good lord, can we PLEASE get a grown up in the White House!
