It's been shown that the small amount of money allotted to PBS from the federal government is hardly enough to even make a blip on the federal budget, so whats up with that mitt, sounds like a personal agenda against PBS.

Posted by: Common _ Sense | October 9, 2012, 10:15 pm 10:15 pm You wouldn't know common sense if it spit in your face. Over 5 million jobs have been added since Obama’s policies hit full stride. GM has set record sales for 7 straight quarters! Third shifts have been added at automotive plants. Manufacturing is up. Another 500,000 jobs added in July, August and September. Big business profits hit record high levels under Obama. The stock market has gone up hugely since Obama’s policies began to kick in. People have regained almost all of their savings they lost under Bush and more. Oil production in the country is up. Green energy production in the country is up. Homelessness amongst veterans has been reduced by 56% since Obama set it as a priority. Programs for military families and veterans have been improved significantly. Iraq war has been ended. A withdrawal plan is in place for Afghanistan. Bin Laden is dead. Kaddafhi is gone. Many, many al Qaeda leaders are gone. All of the world including Russia and China are onside against Iranian nuclear development – the pressure is on. Against odds, America has been protected from any massive terrorist attack. Don’t ask, don’t tell has been repealed. Equal pay for equal work reinforced. Millions of low-income children covered under health care. A woman’s right to choose has been strongly supported. Obamacare will insure all women have birth control coverage which will reduce unwanted pregnancies and abortion – and lower costs. This is a top of the line administration. President Obama is focusing on not revealing his plans to change his failed 1st term policy so that his 2nd term isn’t as big a disaster as his 1st!

They've been talking about Big Bird for a week, and saying "our government isn't giving that much to Big Bird"...... they miss the bigger picture completely! The big picture is that Big Bird is JUST ONE EXAMPLE.... there are thousands of other examples. Big Bird is very profitable... it doesn't need Taxpayer Dollars, at all. It won't have any trouble finding private investors either ! Here’s an example where Democrats are Small Thinkers.

Apparently the Democrat Reelection Committee is desperate to prop up the poster-board image we have lived with for the past 4 years. The the apparent refusal to remove the Big Bird ad is a clear statement that our "Dear Leader" can ignore anything he wants, including the will of the people.

If John Boehner hadn't been spending the last 4 years obstruction Obama and instead had been doing his job to work with the president, we wouldn't be in as bad of shape as we are. Perhaps you should contact Boehner and talk to him about the economic growth. @Paul …..well, I’m fed up with the GOPs continued obstruction of the president’s job in getting this country back onboard.
