For those under a rock this is all I posted yesterday.
So same image. I just pulled out the camera from the closeup on the sign in today’s version. Yes I am poking fun at you my liberal friends. My social media streams have been non stop about what a cruel man Mitt Romney is for wanting to send Big Bird and friends packing. Seriously? This is the biggest thing to come out of the debate that you disagree with?
Everyone complaining that PBS only accounts for $500Million. Yes I get it. In the grand scheme of things that is a pittance. HOWEVER, everyone thinks their project is important no matter how big or small. Guess what? It is the little projects that can add up to big bucks. In my opinion, EVERYTHING is on the table for cutting, reducing or completely overhauling costs. PBS, Defense, Foreign Aid, Medicare…. We can’t continue to cowtow to every special interest or because it is considered politically correct without taking a close look at how to save money in these programs.
What is sad is President Obama’s team jumped on the bandwagon and is running an ad that jumps in the fray. While a funny ad, it is stupid in the grand scheme of things. So stupid that cheers to Sesame Street for asking the President to stop using it’s name and image in a political campaign. See the ad and the response here.
