What that point is remains a mystery. Showing an ad with Wall Street crooks prosecuted by the Bush administration only underscores the point Wall Street crooks such as Obama bundler Jon Corzine have gone scot-free under this corrupt administration. Also ignoring Sesame Street’s request to pull down the ad makes the point these people are completely oblivious.
Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs on Wednesday defended an ad using Sesame Street character Big Bird to attack GOP candidate Mitt Romney, saying it raised an “important point.”
“The ad and the president have an important point on this,” said Gibbs on NBC’s “Today” show. “Mitt Romney in Wednesday’s debate said ‘I’m going to get tough by getting ‘Downton Abbey’ and going to war with ‘Sesame Street’ when he’s going to let Wall Street off the hook and not hold them accountable as we go on financial reform.
“We can’t have a president that does that. That’s certainly part of a very real issue and I think it’s one more piece of something … that Mitt Romney said in the debate that he would like to change or that is a position that he is going to want to change,” Gibbs continued, accusing Romney of changing his stance on numerous issues.
Oh, and the Obama administration never changes positions? Their backtracking on the terror attack in Libya pretty much demolishes that ridiculous argument.
