RNC invokes The Count: Obama mentions Sesame St. 13 times; economy+Libya=0

The Republican National Committee is pushing back against President Obama's embrace of the Big Bird flap by quoting.... Obama.

"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 said in 2008. "And you know what? It's worked before."

It might work again.

The Obama campaign's production of a Big Bird ad, which is supposed to run on cable, is funny. But it's small-bore stuff (although small-bore stuff can be good when it comes to talking about DC's dysfunction).

The RNC has responded with a graphic, featuring County von Count. It notes that in the past few days, Obama has invoked Big Bird 13 times but he has said next to nothing about Libya, where an ambassador was killed in a terrorist attack that his administration at first denied publicly while admitting it privately.

Somewhere Jim Henson is shaking his head in disgust.


Now ObaMao does have a record to run on. He has the Guniess World Book Of Records on the most golf games than all Presidents combined he has still more than they do with the $6,000,000,000,000 he spent on golf lessons and vacations, campaigns, etc. Yeah, he's got the world record for the worst President ever also... Nice, and the White House Beer making Recipt...a BIG accomplishment also the most largest cut to Medicaid of $716,000,000,000.
