    Look guys, I usually refrain from commenting on other country's inner political proceedings, and I don't follow the US presidential election with the same zealotic pseudo-religiosity that most Europeans really do, and I honestly think that Mr Romney is a modest Replubican, the same way Mr Obama is a modest Democrat... BUT...

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Just how much of a comic-book-villain character must one be to go on air and essentially tell people "if you vote for me, I will cancel Sesame Street"?!

    There is a certain voting block (mainly old farts and yuppies with no kids or grandkids, and ) that has been convinced PBS and NPR are taking all their tax dollars and are a major reason why the government is bloated.

    Only neither PBS or NPR need the government's money anyway, since everyone knows they receive a very tiny percentage of public funding, and exist largely because of the support of private funding of course, from "people like you".

    Funding by the people....that makes them socialist, vampires sucking your tax dollars, eh?

    Romney's threat is a paper one. But he's going for the "**** multiculturalism, not with my tax dollars you won't!" crowd.

    Yep we better recover that 0.00308% of our budget that NPR takes up.

    If he's not careful, he's gonna get They Might Be Giants to make a catchy song about how he sucks.

    Also god damn it can we for once get a real debate between candidates?
    What is this 2 min bullshit anyways. How can you get a real cogent through argument out in 2 minutes. You can't all you can get out are shitty little sound bites and memes. Sick of this lowest common denominator approach to politics.
    Don't make the debate for TV make it for the web.
    Allow them to use charts and graphs and ****.
    Allow them 15 mins to answer the question with the mic going off when time is up.
    Let the fact checkers jump in before they move into the next point of debate.
    Thats right lets actually move to get to the truth and not this bullshit.
    **** is it too much to ask people to have some god damn intellectual honesty when it comes to picking who is going to be making long last decisions about how we live?
    **** it we rather talk about Honey fucking Boo Boo and COMPLAIN about the government instead of taking responsibility for it.
    A people for the people by the people based on sound bites

    Like, what are we, the people? Sheep. But don't worry, Romney was right about ONE thing: In Spain, it's ten times worse.

    I am more appalled on these 2 points
    1. That it is completely expected.
    2 .Most people are not going to bother checking with the fact checkers, especially if it reinforces what they already believe.
