WaPo ‘Fact Checker’: No, Romney Doesn’t Really Want to Kill Big Bird, Gives Obama Four Pinocchios

Posted by on Oct 10, 2012 at 10:07 am

Four Pinocchios means Obama is a lying sack of shit. But you already knew that.

How did “I love Big Bird” turn into “kill Big Bird”? Only through a spin machine going on hyper drive.

Romney may have been off base in suggesting PBS funding has much to do with the deficit, but that’s no excuse for the Obama campaign to declare that means the demise of a popular children’s character. According to the financials of Sesame Workshop, Big Bird should do just fine, with or without public funding.

    Gov Romney never suggested that PBS’s funding is driving the deficit. He did suggest that it isn’t government business, which is true. Gov Romney did not suggest, but I hope he believes, that the same kind of thinking which funds PBS does drive the deficit in many ways.

    I could not possibly care less what Glenn Kessler has to say about any public issue.
