Romney: "The President spent the past week talking about Big Bird."

Obama is looking more and more like a lightweight with his focus on Romney's PBS comments.

quote:

Mitt Romney, speaking to a crowd of about 1,200 on a farm here in Van Meter, Iowa, criticized President Obama's recent focus on Big Bird on the campaign trail.

"You have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving Big Bird," he said. "I actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving the American people and saving good jobs."

Romney's not the only one, as my colleague Dylan Byers notes, criticizing the Obama campaign for focusing on a "small" issue like Big Bird.

A failed president can't focus on his failures. I'm convinced we will be done with him in a month.

This trap strategy might have been a brilliant idea.

The more they talk about Big Bird the more it reminds people about the debate. Obama's campaign just won't turn the page will they?

It seems Obama's strategy is a campaign of fear. If you can convince many people the rich man will take things away from them, and they are powerless to stop him I suppose it could begin to resemble a strategy.

A lot will fall for it.

None that weren't already falling for it, I'd wager.

“Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.”

- Obama in 2008.

Romney should use that quote in the next debate whenever Obama starts talking about Big Bird again.

Was it a trap? I hadn't considered it until now but I can see it. If so, Team Romney - Damn

It's all MSNBC is talking about right now. I know I'm biased but I really feel like the Obama camp is destroying their chances to win. Forget who's lying and anything like that. The left sounds like a bunch of damn kids. The shite they're focusing on is ridiculous. There ain't no way in hell that a legit undecided will listen to Obama and co and say that's who I want in office.

I know. And this while Obama's Libyan Embassy story is coming apart like a cheap suit. MSNBC has zero curiosity about that story, but they're obsessed with Sesame Street.

I feel the same way. Its like they are running a campaign as if last week didn't happen. Stupid stuff like this flies when Romney is viewed as a gaffe machine and the media/pop culture are falling over themselves to praise Obama as he cruises to a second term....but last Wednesday changed all of that. That Big Bird ad is an embarrassment. It looks like something SNL would do.

Holy shite this is what I was trying to say. The second Romney opened his mouth in the first debate I put my phone down to listen...and shite got serious. Obama should be right there with him talking about big issues but he's doing the complete opposite. I'm honestly stunned by it.

This is the very model followed by socialist European politicians when running for political position.

I thought the same thing when I heard Obama
cracking jokes about it. I mean Romney is right, the economy is in the toilet and this guy is more worried about joke telling, celebrity schmoozing and late night tv appearances.
