Do you really not pay attention to politics? Or do you only use one particular partisan source for your information? Because you seem very un-informed for someone who is supposedly informed.

The extreme right wing has been gunning to kill PBS for YEARS. They see the "liberal" public broadcast networks as indoctrinating our children with liberal ungodly ideas...like science. They also see NPR public radio news stations as "competition" to their hate radio business. Big Bird is a symbol to make it joke-y, but it is deadly serious. Romney threw out that line as red-meat for his base.

We will be a far poorer nation if we stop funding educational TV and radio and rely only on private programming.

Jack Welch is a criminal and a crook. He is pissed off at the Democrats ever since the Clinton administration made his company, General Electric, pay to clean up the chemicals they illegally dumped under his watch...and because he was investigated by the SEC for his many nefarious and illegal financial dealings.

Funny how the Republicans completely believe the unemployment numbers when they're high, but think the books have been cooked when they drop. Makes no sense. There would have to be a HUGE conspiracy to fudge those employment numbers, and to think that Obama pulled that off after 4 years of over-8% numbers, would be quite a feat.

You really need to change your channel away from Fox occasionally. Dare to step outside the bubble.
First of all, I said I don't know who to believe.

Second, I think I am just as informed as you and many others on this board. At least I am looking at both sides and all angles. I haven't decided yet who I am voting for. I don't believe either the FAR right or the FAR left; and it seems to me that you and many others on this board only believe the left.

Munchkin, I applaud you for keeping an open mind and trying to sort out all the issues.

One of my parents was a Democrat, the other a Republican, so I think that helped me to avoid demonizing either party. From my experience, I think most people only listen to commentators or newscasters that support their point of view and then they characterize the opposite party/candidate as stupid, horrible, etc. ALL Republicans are blah blah, ALL Democrats are blah blah.

It's not tempting to enter into a dialogue here to try to sort out any of the issues, because it ends up in personal attacks. I won't post in this thread any further and I expect that there many be others who won't because they expose themselves to contempt, ridicule, sarcasm and other unproductive responses.

For what it's worth, Jack Welch backed off on his original comment during his interview with Anderson Cooper, admitting that he was not making an actual accusation, but rather raising a question. As he failed to provide any information to support his suspicion, there is no reason to believe the books were cooked.

The Muppets aren't organizing this. Obama supporters are. The Sesame Workshop has issued a statement saying that "We do not comment on political campaigns, but we’re happy we can all agree that everyone likes Big Bird."
The Muppets aren't organizing the march per se, but one part of your comment is not completely correct. I have researched and discovered that PBS is being VERY vocal about Romney's statement about cutting funding to PBS. So in essence, they have become very much involved in this political race. PBS in one of the articles is promoting for people to retweet its case involving Romney's statement:

"Later on Thursday PBS promoted a post on Twitter – where the main case in its defense had been made – describing itself as "trusted, valued and essential" and asking others to retweet. The post linked to a website stressing the value of the service."

Blaming the "Obama suporters" sounds like yet another LIE from the GOP. PBS is in fact expressing their outrage for the threat of losing finding because of Romney and thus have been forced into politics thanks to Romney.

Looking at both sides is one thing...people are on both sides of the debate about whether funding a public broadcast network is worthwhile to our society...

But...I really don't know how one could exist in this day and age and consider oneself informed, and not even know about the far right's feelings on PBS. It's been going on for many years, and has been quite virulant at times. To think Romney was just using it "as an example" is just...silly.

I love PBS. Love it. Sesame Street and Mr Rogers were my Pre School with a single mom who worked nights and slept days.

PBS is the channel I have my kids watch so they dont have iCarly, or Fairly Oddparents as their only options. PBS is the in between I can convince my older child to watch shows like Cyberchase or Electric Company that actually teaches her things but doesn't make her feel like she's watching a baby show.

PBS shows give kids their first experience with learning to read. I became a very dedicated reader bc of Reading Rainbow.

Very sad that someone would try to get rid of it.

At this point, I find it shocking that a voter is still undecided. The candidates are polar opposites on most major issues.

Martin Short sung about the undecideds on Letterman this week. I think he starts singing at 2:50. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=0MRuB...%3D0MRuB5bhNeE

I find it no more shocking than the people who are far left or far right and don't want to even consider anything else. I just plan to listen to everything and watch all the debates before I make my final decision.

You know you can find everything they will say in the debates on each candidate's website. Waiting until the final debate will probably be frustrating. They aren't going to introduce anything different this late on the game & if they do they would lose their credibility.

When people say they are undecided, I don't think it necessarily means that they don't know what the candidates' platforms are, or that they are waiting to hear anything new from the candidates. Sometimes, they know what the candidates are about but are waiting to decide inside themselves as to which values they prioritize and which things they can live without versus the ones they must have.
