DNC. Team Big Bird

Of all the really important stuff like jobs, the economy, foreign affairs....this is Obamas issue

Pathetic



Drew Ė

What did Big Bird ever do to Mitt Romney?

For two years, Republicans have been pushing this crazy idea that Public Broadcasting is the cause of all our nationís problems. Itís ridiculous.

Letís tell Mitt and the Republicans in Congress that their failed policies of the past caused the deficit, not PBS!

Join Team Big Bird: Help us reach 100,000 strong standing up for Public Broadcasting

If Mitt Romney had his way, Sesame Street would be toast. And it wouldnít solve anything.

Add your name to stick up for Public Broadcasting: http://dccc.org/Team-Big-Bird

Thanks

I'm curious as to what Republican ever said that public broadcasting is the cause of all our nation's problems.

Perhaps because its used to educate instead of entertain and perhaps people would prefer that the airtime be used for that instead of a good portion of it going to advertise medication to help resolve erectile dysfunction, or watch stupid ****ing talking animals say stupid ****ing catchlines in bullshit disney flick xyz?

Public broadcasting funding is almost not even on the radar when it comes to the ungodly amount of money this government has been pissing.

Free market choice makes PBS unnecessary. And not just for kids. When there were four channels I guess, but I still don't see where the Constitution encourages the government to own a station (as they did originally) or a network (as they did eventually).

When Obama has to grasp at straws.....they choose this.

He was bent over and rammed up the ass by a corporate shark and he truly didn't like that, and you could tell. He think he's a ****ing king and doesn't have to answer to anyone and to have someone talk down on him and his administration really made the guy uncomfortable.

Lou Dobbs now works for FOX as a financial analyst yet doesn't understand how fractions/decimals/percentages work.

He also believes saving 8 million by cutting PBS is greater than saving 4 billion by cutting oil subsidies.

Wait wait, oil companies need that money to be profitable unlike PBS right, righties???

I have a very good friend who did consulting for PBS...the dirty secret is they have a private held company that makes hundreds of millions from all the products they sell.

It's worth debating whether or not subsidies to the oil industry are worthy of continuation, but there's no such debate about the $8 million that goes to Sesame Street. There's no reasonable argument for why we should be borrowing money from China to prop up a show like that when (a) it could probably stand alone and (b) there are numerous other privately funded alternatives anyway.
