The worst thing for a Narcissist Punk is humiliation. And Romney humiliated the punk for the entire world to see. He is raging and seething inside with anger and he is desperate to try to mock and humiliate Romney back. And yet when he does with ads like this, the American public just gets another reinforcing optic of what an arrogant, snotty little boy he is. Game over punk.

Someone needs to do a song parody where Obama, Pelosi and Reed sing Oscar the Grouch’s, “I Love Trash”!
Use the Occupy Wall Street crowd as background, or, maybe Solyndra or MF Global?
There is your Sesame Street themed add.

“Stupid and irrelevant.”

John Stewart spent most of his show last night attacking Romney over “Big Bird”.

The media smells blood with this. It might not work this time, but the chance to ridicule Romney over this is too much for the haters to pass up.

Big Bird may have earned more money than all of the ‘99%’. He has no need of welfare.

He can fend for himself in the marketplace.

I don't know that it is "official", but it was definitely uploaded by the Obama campaign. It's attributed to the same YouTube username as the rest of the campaign videos.

I suspect it was meant as a spoof, and available only to the people that are in on the joke. But, if the URL goes viral, the only people that are going to consider it serious are the moonbats. Everyone else is just going to think it's lame.

Thanks for posting this. I just saw that Jonah Goldberg tweeted about this, but I don’t really get twitter so I didn’t know how to see it from there.

It is.....really stupid.

My 26 year old did tell me that this was all her lib friends were talking about after the debate, so I can see them wanting to maybe goof on Romney for it, a little bit.

But this is just, um, really stupid.

Dragging in all those Wall Street crooks (and yeah, where is my former Gov. Jon Corzine?) just doesn’t make any sense at all. And if anyone has given TAXPAYER money to corporate crooks, it’s certainly been Barack “Solyndra” Obama, not, you know Mitt Romney or even Boogeyman Bush.

This is probably the stupidest political ad I’ve ever seen.

I hope they it on national TV.

I think it has to be official. If not, with that intro by Obama, youtube will take it down soon.

Ridicule is a great weapon, but this is just childish and is neither clever or funny.

When I’ve watched Seasame Street with my kids, before we turned it off, I saw a lot of trusts like the Pew Charitable Trust and, I think, Rockefeller. It is funded by a lot of charities. If the 10% from taxpayers was cut, they could cut expenses, get more donations from these behemoth trusts, or license a few more toys and household items. The show won’t go off the air.

This pack of punks is arrogant - all of them! They had the gall to call out Romney for not “fielding questions” from children on topics such as queer “marriage.” Do they actually think that kind of thing sets well with most parents? They’re deranged.

Heck, that's because your expecting a responsible debate on the issues. It didn't compute with me either, and I had to check it out. Here's a series of links. Seems official enough...

IMHO, this is the kind of material one puts together with the remaining staff still on hand while all of the others are stampeding over each other to get into the bunker...

Big Bird would look good on a nice bed of rice, surrounded by evil greedy rich Republican warmongers with their forks & knives ready to dig in.

This message is brought to you by the letter “R”.

I wish the RR campaign would make more of this.

Not this particular ad, but the underlying lack of acknowledgment that Obama has been in charge for 4 long years.

In our area, the most prevalent ad by Romney is the one where he says Obama isn't standing up to China. It's effective, but hardly the primary issue in most voter's minds.

Obama came out with an ad in response that attacks Romney's record on China.

But the distinction that needs to be made, and this applies regarding a lot of Obama’s attacks on Romney, is Romney, like other businessmen, is operating - has to operate, in the environment created by government.

By contrast, Obama is responsible for that environment.

I'm not sure how to articulate this better, but people seem to respond well when hypocrisy is pointed out. Well attacking a businessman for making the most, legally, out of a body of rules and laws you and your party largely created, is the ultimate in hypocrisy.

By contrast, Obama is painting Romney as hypocritical for operating in an environment that he had little part in creating (at least outside of Taxachusets), and pointing out the system is broken even though a businessman in this environment has a front row seat to the carnage.
