Guess we already knew he didn’t have love for the kids after he dissed Big Bird, but Mitt def doesn’t have a good excuse for this one!
Robney chose to skip the “Kids Pick the President” special that Nickelodeon hosts each election year and the shows executive producer said the decision Mitt made “disses” children…SMH.
This would have been a prime opportunity for Mittens to save face after the out of pocket comments he made about PBS during last weeks debate, but the Governor “simply didn’t have time. He couldn’t fit it in his schedule”.
“Kids Pick the President: The Candidates,” with videotaped questions for the candidates from youngsters nationwide, debuts Oct. 15 on the children’s channel. Afterward, an online poll asks kids to make their pick.
His decision is disappointing because “answering kids’ questions directly shows respect for the several million kids who will vote in Nickelodeon’s ‘Kids Pick the President’ campaign,” she said.
“That’s several million kids who actually want to get involved in the democratic process,” Ellerbee said. “They don’t deserve to be dissed. But former Gov. Romney also blew off Letterman and Big Bird, so I guess we’re in good company.”
The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to email and phone requests for comment…For the special, Obama fielded questions regarding gun control, jobs, illegal immigration, same-sex marriage and bullying. He also was asked about his most embarrassing moment, Nickelodeon said.
Obama gets props from us (again); we’re sure POTUS has an even busier schedule than Romney and he still did the right thing and made time for the kids.
Do you think Mittens should of made the effort?
