The Sesame Street Commander-in-Chief
The Obama campaign stupidly thinks that Sesame Street can single-handedly (or should I say single-wingedly) knock the stuffing out of the Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. The campaign’s latest attack ad features the faces of evil people-eating capitalists (Jon Corzine not among them) along side Mitt’s attractive mug in an attempt to link Romney to the great greed machine that will oh so wickedly cut the public paycheck of that PBS yellow-bellied multimillionaire known as Big Bird.
This sad-assed ad is backfiring big time. Not only is it getting laughed at on the conservative side but the Left-wing pundits are furious at the frivolity of Mister O’s small-ball agenda. The best one-liner to describe this latest dish of desperate silliness from the Obama crowd was quipped by Rick Klein of ABC: Romney marches toward Benghazi, while the president marches down Sesame Street?
No, Barack, this election isn’t about Elmo, it’s about the economy. And it ain’t about a giant feathered-friend, it’s about foreign policy. You know, all that grown-up stuff that requires a president with skill, knowledge, vision, determination, courage, diplomacy, and hardcore leadership.
Obama and Big Bird, perfect together. The lost mariner and his albatross.
