This cute baby reacts to Romney's firing of Big Bird.

More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

that poor little girl cry?
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

disturbs me. The people who made it should be ashamed of themselves for treating that girl that way to make a stupid fucking YouTube video to make a political point.

Not funny. Abusive in my opinion.

You don't do things like that to a little kid. If she asks about Mitt and Big Bird that is one thing, tossing it at her and letting her react is something else entirely.

five year old, i got a howdy doody puppet for christmas - it was a sunday.
the next morning i was anxiously sitting in front of the screen when uncle bob announced that howdy wouldn't be on that day (the ONLY day i ever remember the puppet not being on the damned show!) i ran to my parents and cried "send him BACK! i thought he was not on air because i had him!
so, i relate to this video much differently than the rest of you - i relate to it from the eyes of a small child who doesn't understand.
by edrie on Thu Oct 04, 2012 at 06:05:23 PM PDT
and imagine your parents had told you that Howdy Doody was gone because some politician killed him.
There's enough unhappiness and frustration that comes into the life of any child without their parents purposely and wantonly creating some just to make a video to put on the internet.

concern expressed here that i've removed my uprate and rec.
i'd like to know more about the video and how and who made it.
by edrie on Thu Oct 04, 2012 at 10:29:01 PM PDT
When I watched the video it seemed clear to me the parents or whatever were doing something that made a popping almost firecracker noise to get the girl to cry. If it were really about big bird and Romney I wouldn't be as bothered. But it's fake and they are using something that they already know terrifies the girl. It's like setting off firecrackers around a dog when you know it terrifies the dog.

the sound is - now that i think about it - is someone threatening "big bird" off camera?
my thoughts jumped to my experience as a five year old - and how seriously children take things - but if there is something done to deliberately terrify the little girl, then that is wrong.

think she deserves to be spoken to in that tone.

opinion can evoke such hostility.

I don't think I will uprate since I don't want to cause contention.
I understand the intention of the video, I don't think the delivery is correct and I think the video itself doesn't convey said intent.
