Dems are in full panic mode. In my opinion, unless something truly crazy happens Romney has already won the election. This is what panic mode looks like..they are just doing this to get their own base to the polls..that is why Obama goes on The View and hangs out with celebrities, he’s lost everyone else, all he has left are his far left base which he has to beg and plead to go to the polls and vote for him

Ooh! They’re gonna find out pretty quick what we all know: Bumby does whatever he wants to do-without regard for rules, regs, requests or consequences to others.

Hurts, doesn’t it?

What’s a copyright infringement lawsuit to THE MESSIAh and his worshipping sycophants?? It’s not like the laws of us mere mortals apply to them, anyway.

If they win, DOJ/SEC pays a nice little visit to them, and the threat of a lawsuit goes away.

If they lose, they won’t care anyway, somebody else will get to foot the bill for it.

I hope Romney shows a counter ad stressing how 0bama talks about Big Bird but ignores the ME and the economy.

Ohhhhh, now I get it. Sesame Street PUBLICLY says they don't want the ad up, but PRIVATELY they approve 100%. Your goose is COOKED, Big Bird!:

They are thinking that a Sesame Street ad will help their cause?

Obama and his gang are working as if they are down to having to count on their filed goal kicker (Biden) and the back up kicker (Big Bird) being the only chances they have of pulling out any sort of a win.

Let us pray for groin pulls.

They basically have to do this. If PBS/NPR thinks that even one penny of their government funding stream is in jeopardy, they will drop every other subject and go 24/7 wall-to-wall with stories about all the wonderful things they do For Our Nation and all the terrible things that will happen if they have to fend for themselves.

They did it during Reagan, and they’ll do it now. They’re certainly making plans to do it if Romney wins.

If Obama wavers, NPR/PBS will drop his reelection as a subject in an instant.

I’d have thought they would take it down after it was panned across the media as a joke. Even Tingles advised against this.

Does Gibbsy know if they are being sued for Copyright Infringement? That could involve big bucks.

Confirmed: they are now officially in a Death Spiral.

Caused by the fact that they are just too damned arrogant to admit that they could possibly be wrong about anything and change course.

Everytime that Big Bird ad runs, another undecided or Independent voter decides to vote for Romney.

The difference....there were only 4 TV channels during the Reagan years....

Their voice has shrunk and the only thing most people know is "Sesame Street" and there is not a channel out there that would not pick up that show, and we all know it.

"Mitt Romney, taking on our enemies no matter where they nest."

So obama thinks BB is our enemy! No one said BB is our enenmy - as usual, obama is pointing the finger as anything but HIM! Obama seems him as an enemy because he CAN pay his own way and he built it on his own!

This is nearly unbelievable, given the howling of their liberal base about the ad. You know that they do some type of focus group testing of these things before they air, so that begs the question, “who did they focus this on? what group are they trying to reach with the ad?”

Of course they won't take it down. Don't you know...Obama takes no orders from, or bows down to no one, no where, no matter what. Except, of course, if they are in the Muslim leaders or terrorists.

And, of course, they have to keep the ad up. It is the only topic on which Obama can speak about with any knowledge. He even knows the words to the new Democrat campaign song "Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street" and is planning to sing it at his next fundraiser. (Of course, Oscar the Grouch's song "I like trash," is really more appropriate for Zero. He is surrounded by trash and wallows in it.)

The worst part of their running the ad, for them, is that it continues to remind voters of Obama’s horrid debate performance as nothing else can... and 70 Million plus saw that sucker...

Really unsmart.

Romney needs to run and AD saying”Mr President we know you don’t want to talk about jobs lost, food up, utility bills up, wages down or even how your foreign policy is failing but I hope you stop talking about Big bird as we have more pressing issues as a country”

officials said they were reviewing Sesame Workshop's appeal.

IOW, their attorneys are checking to see if they legally have to comply.

They got both Reagan and Newt Gingrich to back down on de-funding NPR with this approach. So of course they just assumed it would work again.
