Obama

Romney Disses Little Kids

Over Nickelodeon Prez Show

EXCLUSIVE

1008_obama_mitt_nick
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."

I have no idea who to vote for. lessor of two (2) evils.Obama's pastor who married him and had his kids attend his church was enough for me to say no. Mitt at the debate reminded me of Bush, does what he wants doesn't care about the public nor should he tell the public.
Can we have a DO OVER!

Maybe Obama thought that if he addressed some kids whose math skills were as low as his own, he might look like some sort of success. Unfortunately for him, I'd wager those kids are in at least the 3rd grade, and you learn simple math in 1st and 2nd grade.

Is this the same Nickelodeon that allowed that pervert Jason Biggs' obscene twitter account to be accessed by millions of kids and then refuse to fire him after parents complained? I am with Mitt...pass.

I think it was a stupid decision for Romney not go. The kids even though they can't vote they just as right to ask their president questions. All whats going on is affecting them as well.

I'm sure Obama will pick up 5 points easily in the 6-14 age range... and all those voters will be his.

Who cares about what he lost from the Debate in Denver, losing the 18-49 crowd and the 50+ voters won't hurt at all.

fact is: republicans did nothing good to america in the last 20 years, so there is no reason to vote for them. after 8 successful clinton years they created a mess for 8 years and did do everything to make obama fail instead of helping to clean up a mess. i understand why billionaires and big corporations would elect romney as they pay him, but the rest must be nuts to do it.

Clint Eastwood was right. This guy is an empty chair. and TMZ is moronic for not seeing how stupid this event was...
Romney (and Im no fan) is a grown up.
Obama is a Kardashian

Some of you guys are so foolish of course the children can't vote, but they have family members who won't like the sound of what Romney did if they were ever considering voting for the devil.
