I feel embarrassed for the Obama Campaign.  Obviously they are not mature enough to feel embarrassment themselves.  After that pathetic debacle of a debate performance by Barack Obama last Wednesday, the campaign can't seem to get it through their collective skulls that harping on the debate every day doesn't actually help them.  They've called Romney a liar- though they've never expressed any "lie" he told.  They do cling to their oft-discredited "$5 Trillion tax cut" line, but the best they can even say there is that Romney's economists disagree with their economists.  Hardly a "lie," and one of the economists the Obama Campaign is citing has expressly told them to cut it out, because he said exactly the opposite of what they're saying.

And then comes this.  Apparently the Obama Campaign has decided to seize on Mr. Romney's remark about defunding PBS and "firing" Big Bird and Debate Opponent Jim Lehrer.  So they cut an ad featuring Big Bird, who, by the way, is valued at something like $400,000,000.00 from estimates I've seen.  While Mitt Romney continues laying out a plan for the country, both economic and national defense, Barack Obama is trying to "save" Sesame Street.  The add probably cost tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars (there's also the possible impropriety of having the taxpayer funded Big Bird appearing in a political ad at all).  Mr. Obama hasn't had time to sit down with 20/20, or Nightline, or any other major national journalist, but he found time for Nickelodeon.  Seriously.

This is embarrassing.  He should feel ashamed of himself for allowing his campaign to go off the rails like this.  He spends time with Big Bird and Nickelodeon, but not seeking answers on the Benghazi attack?  It's pathetic, just absolutely pathetic.  A grown man wouldn't do that, let alone someone who took seriously his role as President of the United States.

In the end, I have only one response to it, in fact:
