After an abysmal debate showing by President Obama, the polls have Romney closing in swing states throughout the nation–and Gallup today has Romney +2% over Obama in their latest national survey. Voters throughout the nation agreed that Romney presented a strong case for his election, outlining his agenda and providing far more details than Obama.
With such a butt-kicking, you would have thought that Obama might have gotten back to the issues and let voters know where he stands and how he’s going to turn things around. Issues like:
- High unemployment
- Skyrocketing national debt
- A White House cover-up of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi
- Out-of-control government regulation
Nope. Obama has far more important things to worry about:
That’s right, folks. While Americans struggle with how to pay their bills, President Obama wants to make the 2012 campaign about an off-the-cuff remark on Big Bird. You know, the lead character for a merchandising empire that pays its staff at 1%-er levels all while collecting millions in subsidies from your tax dollars.
Because that’s the type of issue the millions of additional unemployed Americans care about? Is Obama really trying to scare voters into thinking a Romney presidency would nix Sesame Street?
Yep. After all, if you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.
Why does it feel like I’m stealing that line from somewhere?…
Oh, right… President Obama’s latest move demonstrates the desperation of his campaign following his historic spanking in the debate. He’s scrambling.
And that’s not exactly a good position to be in just 28 days from Election Day.
UPDATE: Sesame Workshop, the non-profit behind Sesame Street, has publicly requested the Obama campaign pull the new ad. For those keeping track at home, that’s two organizations who have reprimanded Obama in the past week.
