President Obama cares so much about Big Bird that over the economy, gas prices, Libya, declining incomes, a faltering GDP, and a rise in poverty -- the president's dedicated his campaign mission to keeping the multimillionaire puppet on the government dole. Apparently, though, Obama doesn't care enough about Big Bird to honor a request from the Sesame Workshop asking that an ad using Big Bird's image be taken down:
Following a request by PBS for the Obama campaign to take down its new attack ad featuring Big Bird, the campaign appears to be standing by the 30-second spot.
Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs said on Wednesday that he was unaware of any efforts to take down the ad[.]
But it gets worse:
Jen Psaki, the Obama campaign's traveling press secretary, followed a similar line on Tuesday. “There’s only one candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo, and he is riding on this plane,” she said
If only President Obama had shown half as much passion and dedication towards protecting our people in Libya.
