Video: Obama Campaign Releases Big Bird-Mitt Romney Ad

| by Michael Allen

A new ad released by President Obama‘s reelection campaign mocks Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's promise to cut funding for PBS, including Big Bird, during last Wednesday night’s debate (video below).

An overdramatic voice starts the commericial with: “Bernie Madoff. Ken Lay. Dennis Kozlowski. Criminals. Gluttons of greed. And the evil genius who towered over them?”

The ad cuts to Big Bird's profile in the window of a glass tower: “One man has the guts to speak his name.”

The ad then slams Romney for attacking Big Bird and Sesame Street, but not the criminals on Wall Street.
