Skip to comments.8-Year-Old’s Letter to Romney Urges Him to Not Fire Big Bird
Posted on 10/05/2012 3:11:09 PM PDT by DallasBiff
Romney had said, "I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS ... I like PBS, I love Big Bird ... but I am not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for." Cecelia and others were upset about potentially losing the long-running "Sesame Street" and other PBS shows. Cecelia's handwritten letter reads as follows:
"I saw you on the debate last night and you said you would cut off PBS kids with Sesame Street on it. It was my favorite show on Earth. But now I'm 8 years old. When I grow up, I'm going to get married and I want my kids to watch it. So do not cut it off. You find something else to cut off! Don't hurt little kids. They need Sesame Street where they can learn from it. Save Big Bird and his friends."
Reaction to the letter has been mixed. One skeptical commenter wrote, "If anyone thinks kids really write these letters, then I have a bridge to sell you." Another agreed with the letter, writing, "please Mitt ... just leave this one alone."
The letter was sent to Romney campaign headquarters by Cecelia's mom and also to the Huffington Post. No word yet from the Romney campaign on Cecelia's letter, and lucky for Romney, the legal voting age in the United States is 18.

We all should have seen this coming, lol.
I’d like to see a letter from an 8 year old saying he is tired of his daddy having to support under threat of the IRS gestapo a commie lib network that he doesn’t listen to anyway.
Parents who use their children to advance a political agenda should be ashamed of themselves...reminds of the ‘Death to Israel’ signs I saw children carrying at one of those ‘anti-war’ rallies in Washington a number of years ago...(No, I was on the Freeper side of the street with Congressman Dornan...)
Cute Liberal trick—Who are the parents of the child—My bet they are Liberal activists. Romney should read this and answer the kids letter—saying “I like Big Bird too and I will set up a commission to help fund PBS with private sector cash—not Government money that’s just not there. I will even contribute to a transition from Public to private funding for Big Bird and all his puppet friends. and for Jim Leare too—I will lobby get him a job on Fox or some other station. He did a great job on the debate.” (that should kill Jim’s career).
Cecelia’s going to be singing a different tune when she’s 28 and the Feds are taking 80% of her paycheck to payoff the trillions we’re running up now.
But given that mom cc’d Huffington Post, I’m certain that mom had a lot to do with writing this.
and the liberals want us to believe an eight year old wrote this...unbelievable..
further proof that they lie, fraud, fake, phony stories..
Because you watched Big Bird and got so smart, I'm sure you will have a very good job when you grow up and get married.
So go ask Mommy how she would like it if you just kept your big fat salary for yourself and expected her to buy all your food and clothes and pay for your hover-craft and implanted communication device on her credit card with 27% interest?
Then tell you Commie Mommy to write "I will not use my child as a political propaganda tool" one trillion times. You can also tell her that a special time has been set aside on Nov. 7 for the smart people to go and vote. I hear Big Bird will be signing autographs and handing out
cookies rice cakes. You like rice, don't you Cecelia? No? Better get used to it.
I would make 1 trillion 16 trillion, other than that great stuff
Sesame Street has always been lame to me.
It is lame...turns children into adult Democrats...
Big Bird makes a $50 million profit per year,
Okay, so now they are trying to make this a campaign issue...seriously?!? Here’s what I received from the Obama campaign peeps...
Obama - Biden
On Wednesday night, Mitt Romney told us he’d fire Big Bird.
If you want to protect Big Bird, here’s how: Log on to Facebook, check your voter registration status, then share the app and make sure your friends are registered, too.
Sesame Street friends aside, the debate on Wednesday reminded me why I’m proud to support President Obama.
He told us the truth. He treated us like grown-ups, and he kept it real, talking about what we need to do to put America back on track. The president said point-blank that we’ve got to improve our education system by hiring more teachers and keeping college tuition low.
That wasn’t a zinger — that was some straight talk from a President who’s fighting for young Americans.
Looking for more facts in your face? Obamacare allows young people to stay on their parents’ insurances plans until they’re 26. Millions of young adults, including more than 3.1 million who were previously uninsured, have the President to thank when they don’t have to shell out the big bucks for a check up.
President Obama’s got our back. He’s got Big Bird’s back — and Bert’s, Ernie’s, Elmo’s, and the rest of the gang on the Street.
We’ve got to get his. #SaveBigBird and get on #TeamObama.
Make sure you can vote this fall — and that your friends can, too:
Deputy National Field Director
Not to mention, Mark Levin already said that if Sesame Street is threatened from existence, he will put together a group of investors and purchase and operate the franchise.
No worries little girl!
Yes, Cecelia, there is a big bird, and, nature says every bird must leave the nest some time.
