President Obama has got his mojo back. It started yesterday and he's gaining more by the day. No doubt the unemployment numbers helped today, but I think President Obama just bounces back from adversity. He's a fighter. It may not have been his best debating performance this week. Yes, he was rusty and perhaps thrown off by Romney's bald-face lying. But I would not bet against this man. President Obama has overcome far more than a mediocre debate performance in his life. He's a winner.
Today he's treating Romney with the disdain that Mitt deserves, ridiculing Romney's war on Sesame Street.
When [Romney] was asked how he’d actually cut spending and reduce the deficit, he said he’d go after funding for public television.President Obama's remarks at Cleveland, OH, campaign event
AUDIENCE: Booo --
THE PRESIDENT: So for all you moms and kids out there, don’t worry, somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird. (Laughter.) Elmo, you better make a run for it. (Laughter.) Governor Romney is going to let Wall Street run wild again, but he’s going to bring the hammer down on “Sesame Street.”
AUDIENCE: Booo --
THE PRESIDENT: You want me to save Big Bird? (Applause.)
AUDIENCE: Save Big Bird! Save Big Bird! Save Big Bird!
Mitt is mean. Save Big Bird!
Conan O'Brien shows the evil Mittster trying to machine gun Big Bird in a scene reminescent of Cary Grant in the corn field in North by Northwest.
Mitt, in America you can screw with adults, send their jobs overseas for years, destroy their livelihoods, amass your fortune on other's misfortunes. But you fuck with Big Bird and America will rise up and kick your sorry ass. Fuck with Elmo and a million under 5 year olds will come at you with all they have. And their parents, grandparents, and siblings, all decent folks.
THE PRESIDENT: You want me to save Big Bird? (Applause.)This President will save Big Bird.
AUDIENCE: Save Big Bird! Save Big Bird! Save Big Bird
Update I: From zippodave in teh comments, cnn contributor and big asshole from redstate, Eric Erickson calls out Big Bird as part of the 47%:
Erick Erickson @EWEricksonUp yours Mr. Erickson. Hope some bird dropping land on your head.
Time to get Big Bird off welfare and into the private sector. Miss Piggy and Kermit seem to be doing quite well there.
