    Last night a representative from the Childrens’ Television Workshop publicly stated that Sesame Street gets so much money from licenses and corporate donations that they don’t even need federal money anymore. As such, they would much rather prefer that people quit bringing them up when it comes time to discuss funding for PBS.

    So why are they still taking the money?

    If anything, Sesame Street could actually subsidize some of the other shows on the network.

    The bird brain attacking Big Bird. I’d have liked to see both of them say they’d defund the Office of Faith Based Initiatives, that’s doling out far more taxpayer money to Liberty University than PBS.

    PBS has been under attack since the 1980s. Remember the days without any advertising? Enjoyable music without interuption? Informative news without political leanings? I do.

    Pay for your program. Do not use ‘other people’s money’.

    Romney is happiest when he is destroying something.

    That is what I got out of the debate. He gave me the chills. And he was rude.

    And then you call out Dan Quayle as stupid for condemning to a fictional character… you libs were totally PWN’d and you know it.

    Romney is concerned about federal spending….for free tv on subsidized PBS….when the US is borrowing foreign money and continuing to add to the over $16 Trillion public debt, just to fund things like free TV that have no constitutional authority for government to fund.
    Romney knows that the PBS popular programs can get viewer donations and funding by charitable private trusts and continue broadcasting. Romney is not “killing” anything. It takes the mindset of an 8-year-old to stretch what Romney actually said about ending US treasury funds for PBS into these inane cartoons.
