In the latest Barack Obama presidential ad campaign, Obama pokes fun at Mitt Romney’s attack at PBS’ Sesame Street as a key ingredient in the down falling economy. Romney has, on multiple occasions, mentioned Big Bird as a high contributor to large government funding and plans to cancel the Public Broadcasting Service in attempts to fix the economy. However, Romney clearly avoids any correlation of the downfall of Wall Street and the American economy. Living in the biggest depression since the 1930s has given Romney the idea that Big Bird is a menacing character on society and all broadcasting should be stopped.
This playful campaign gently pokes fun at Romney and is produced in a good light. This is a great Obama campaign chosen to analyze Romney’s campaign.
