Besides, if you were Obama what would you rather talk about? Cookie Monster or the faltering economy?

I disagree. If Mitt went into in length discussion on the subject for a week as the obamanites are doing, then yes.
I personally liked hearing it for I think it’s wrong for the fed gov to fund leftist crap. I worked with and for some of the most diehard leftists for a few years, and they listened to NPR all the time. I just think it’s all out wrong for the taxes I pay to be used to spew propaganda.
I do see eliminating funding of the EPA a higher priority, but can you imagine the fit the libs would throw over that?
Hi Newbie.....he raised it because of Jim Lehrer, the moderator.
“Faced with a trillion dollar deficit all he can specifically mention cutting is the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which would reduce the deficit by 4/100ths of 1 percent.”
The problem is the tens of thousands of like expenditures that the govt makes. All trivial but when you add them up they are real. We are 16 trillion dollars in debt. Instead of following the shiny object and excuseing all expenditures because they alone “ won’t balance the budget” we need to demand that they account for every penny. It is time for the government to start setting priorities and no waste, no matter how small is acceptable. No more Big Bird, no more Cowboy poetry no more rediculous spending of any kind.
