Romney didn't attack  Sesame street, if you heard the debate, he actually likes Big Bird,  but he said, he would not borrow money to fund it if he had to and used it as an example of  things and areas where he would reduce tax-payers  funding.

Does Big Bird need government funds ?  the show Sesame street earns enough from marketing itself and selling its own products to survive on its own merits without additional funding from the government.

A strong military  is the best deterent to those who would seek to do us harm. 

Did Romney suck as  blake303 (29.80   stated ?

Clearly not,  that night, he was victorious, not that it would change the minds  of  closed minded people.

Sadly, many individuals will vote simply based upon party lines, racial identity,  and other biased factors.

It's the way of the world  much like how  that one teacher sadly openly attacked her student for wearing a shirt with Romney on it.

Samantha Pawlucy, a 16-year-old high school student at Charles Carroll High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, said she was attacked for wearing a Romney t-shirt that her teacher compared to the Ku Klux Klan, NBC Philadelphia reported on Thursday.

According to the high school sophomore, no one made an issue of the shirt until she got to her geometry class.

"The teacher told me to get out of the classroom," she said. "I said no," she added.

"She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked me… 'are your parents Republican?' I said, 'I don't know.' She said that's like her wearing a KKK shirt," Pawlucy explained.

According to Philly.com, Pawlucy said the teacher went "into the hallway to urge other teachers and students to mock her."

“I was really embarrassed and shocked. I didn’t think she’d go in the hallway and scream to everyone,” she said. “It wasn’t scary, but it felt weird.”

Pawlucy said that she decided to wear the shirt supporting the GOP candidate after researching both candidates, and her father, Richard Pawlucy, said she was "especially interested in Romney’s opposition to partial-birth abortion," Philly.com added.

Mr. Pawlucy told radio station WWIQ that the teacher allegedly wanted to know why Samantha was wearing a “Republican shirt” when “this is a democratic school,” the New York Daily News reported.

It wasn't until said bad teacher realized that she could get in big trouble for what she did that reportedly  she  apologized to the parents and claimed she was only joking ????

According to the Philly school district, the unidentified female teacher was  moved to another class and the incident is being investigated ?

A spokesperson for the teacher's union  refused to comment on the pathetic attack upon  a student by  a grown adult teacher who should have known better ?

But hey it is what it is.

And apparently it's  wrong  to show any support for the wrong party ?  The  Republican party.

Only a coward would attack a student.  Said act, shows me that we are over-paying ~ over funding  our teachers when they feel so safe in being able to openly  attack a  student in a classroom  thats suppose to not brain-wash students, but educate them.

What an education indeed...
