The real news today is the pummeling Obama is taking in the polls — see Ace’s thunderdome for all the latest in poll carnage that has ensued since last week’s debate, (which we now hear, Obama initially thought he won?!)..
Oh, and the election finance scandal now being picked up by the MSM, is another thing the Obama camp doesn’t want to talk about, as well as the Benghazi attack cover-up, not to mention the pathetic news that the plant in Holland, MI that got $150M in taxpayer money to make Volt batteries has furloughed workers after failing to produce a single battery. The plant employed 200 workers who are now being placed on furlough. Two years after the ribbon cutting ceremony that Obama himself attended, (proclaiming how he was “putting GM back to work, and “saving Michigan”) the battery manufacturing is being shipped offshore to an LG plant in South Korea.
Via Michelle Fields, Sesame Street has asked that the video be taken down:
Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.
And via Sooper Mexican, an Obama campaign staffer tweeted out this response:
Obama spox says they have received Sesame Street's complaint and will be reviewing their concerns.—

It’s merely under consideration….because their pro-Big Bird stance is such a winner for them (and such an effective distraction from Obama’s colossal failures) they are willing to go against the wishes of the people they are ostensibly trying to defend.
It’s all part of Team Obama’s never-ending quest to secure the STUPID vote. That’s why President “Eye Candy” has gone out of his way to appear on Entertainment Tonight, The View, Letterman, etc…and now Nickelodeon, too.
(Mediaite) Nickelodeon’s news outfit Nick News is reportedly “disappointed” that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has declined to appear in the channel’s “Kids Pick the President” election special, which airs several weeks before the election.
“After numerous attempts by ‘Nick News’ to get former Governor Mitt Romney to participate in the special, his camp declined saying he was unable to fit it into his schedule,” Nickelodeon said in a press statement.
Last time I checked, “kids” can’t vote.
President Barack Obama will appear, however, having pre-taped his answers to kids’ questions at the White House. As a stand-in for official Romney responses to the kids’ queries, the channel will use archive video clips of the GOP candidate answering similar questions.
Kids can’t vote, but their parents can. And many of them will be watching with their kids.
His wife, for some reason, has practically become a permanent fixture over there – (“hey, mom! Michelle Obama’s on Nickelodeon, again!”) – just one more reason to kick these shameless charlatans to the curb on Nov. 6.
(And Nickelodeon, too, unless they clean up their act.)
