BIG BIRD UNDER ATTACK
Mitt Romney Disses Big Bird
Last night's first Presidential Debate held in Colorado had one clear winner: Mitt Romney. The losers were President Obama, Jim Lehrer, and of all things BIG BIRD. It was perfectly clear Romney came into the debates with his game on and challenged Obama at every turn. Even the host moderator, Jim Lehrer, was in Romney''s cross-fire, but the biggest moment came when he put Big Bird on Blast! Mitt Romney said he would cut government funding to PBS, which showcases Sesame Street, and Big Bird and the gang, prompting an instant explosion on Twitter and Facebook Big Bird supports saying Mitt wanted to fire Big and the gang. He said:
"I'm sorry Jim. I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I'm gonna stop other things," Romney said. "I like PBS, I like Big Bird, I actually like you too."
