Obama asks for specific cuts. Romney gives him two. ObamaCare and PBS. Madness ensues...outrage over the threat to Big Bird. This 1) helps Obama change the subject from ObamaCare and 2) explains why no one ever wants to be specific. No matter WHAT Romney had said, this outrage would be whirling. Because every government program is a sacred cow. Big Bird will be fine and everyone knows it. And kids need to get off their backsides from in front of the TV and go play for heaven's sake. CUT PBS.

Well said MAC - just their merchandising alone would more than fund their program and the real issues no one is reporting on which is why I like Mitt's response.

Last night, Mitt Romney told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Big Bird will be just fine and explained the need to focus on real issue like 23 million people being out of work.
