Lets see. The middle east is in turmoil, The deficit is 1.5 TRILLOIN, Unemployment is at 8% for 43 straight months, Food stamps have doubled under Obama, and all he has to campaign on is that Romney said that ONE of the many things he would cut is PBS. Tell us, exactly what role in gov't does PBS play!

Just put out a few ads of Romney, in his own words, contradicting himself on every issue. Then a collage of Romney referencing his plan, followed by a collage of him saying he doesn't have time to explain his plan and then this phrase "What is the plan".

I'm sure Nickelodeon or Disney will gladly air Sesame street.

" said that ONE of the many things he would cut is PBS. Tell us, exactly what role in gov't does PBS play!" .... why is it that Romney could only come up with that one thing that amounts to 1/100 of 1% if there are so many? So what role does Romney think PBS plays?

alaskanred - actually, a better commercial would be Obama, saying things like "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" End Of Story. . . . .

I pay taxes and I want some of my taxes to go to NPR. If Conservatives want to ax NPR that's fine but then I want Ethanol subsidizes to get the ax also.

Big Bird and Sesame Street is, and will be financially viable without federal funding.
