It’s come to this: New Obama ad features Big Bird

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

This is how proud of his record Barack Obama is – the latest campaign ad produced by team Obama features Mitt Romney’s comments on Big Bird. Wait, no bragging about the Middle East being on fire? No bragging about setting another food stamp record? Nope – time to talk Big Bird!


Sesame Street, however, is not on board with the ad. They issued a statement saying:

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.

    Reality check – Obama is desperate and insane. Nothing more needs to be said.

  • Sam Fisher

    To be fair Glenn most of Obama’s supporters watch Big Bird. How else would the occupiers learn to read? Wow ad has a lot of Occupy pooper mentality in it.

    Putin is only doing what he thinks is right for his country, but that (unfortunately) conflicts with our own interests. We need a strong president to counter.

    Hey Big Bird: You were first seen on tv in 1969 so you are 42+ years old. Time to leave the nest and strike out on your own, and take all those slackers with you.

    I find it funny that Sesame Inc has put out a statement about this very ad. They are not a political organization and do not want to be associated with this.

    Besides, they make enough money to keep PBS on the air anyway. Wayne Dyer does specials all the time for donations to PBS. Why is government funding needed? The answer: it isn’t.

    Hey kids the word for today is “FAILURE”.

    • greywolfrs

      Can you say “failure?” I knew that you could.

    I believe Bert and Ernie are behind all of this mayhem…

      Folks, this is the vulgar face of the Liberal Progressives in this country.

      Note his hatred for women,

      All he has is his leftist rhetoric and vulgarity.

      Hey strtlk, stop drinking out of the toilets and those round things in the urinals aren’t mints!

      Once again you’re proof how easy it is to appease lemmings. Really sad how lame your attempts to respond are. A 3 yr old would respond better.

      Actually, you are once again inverting the truth. Nothing remarkable about that commercial, and not even mildly interesting, much less funny.

      But then, you voted for him, so you are already proven to be mentally defective in the first place, so your support for this president and his administration becomes very clear in light of your mental status.

      You should find something to do with your time besides trolling.

    Time to give obama the bird.

    Barry ought to keep partying with the likes of McCartney and Clooney and leave the more important matters to the grown-ups.
