Bummer: Nickelodeon Upset That Romney Declined To Appear With People Who Can’t Vote

Perhaps Nick’ should be a bit more concerned with a President who decided to campaign the day after our Libyan consulate was attacked and the ambassador was killed, as well as a president who blows off world leaders, including the Israeli P.M., in order to go on The View and be eye candy

(Mediaite) Nickelodeon’s news outfit Nick News is reportedly “disappointed” that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has declined to appear in the channel’s “Kids Pick the President” election special, which airs several weeks before the election.

“After numerous attempts by ‘Nick News’ to get former Governor Mitt Romney to participate in the special, his camp declined saying he was unable to fit it into his schedule,” Nickelodeon said in a press statement.

Last time I checked, “kids” can’t vote.

President Barack Obama will appear, however, having pre-taped his answers to kids’ questions at the White House. As a stand-in for official Romney responses to the kids’ queries, the channel will use archive video clips of the GOP candidate answering similar questions.

So, the president is going to mail it in as usual, and isn’t really “appearing”, either.

“By answering kids’ questions directly, candidates show respect for kids,” added host Linda Ellerbee in the statement. “We are disappointed that Mitt Romney wouldn’t take the time to answer the questions, but are thrilled that President Obama participated in the special.”

I hope the kids have lots of time on their hands to list to the long, rambling, non-sensical answers from Obama. I wonder if any of them asked what was going through PBO’s mind when he decided to pass the Stimulus, mortgaging the kiddies future, not to mention adding over $5 trillion dollars to the deficit in under 4 years, presiding over a period of terrible economic times where the earning power of mom and dad has been stifled, and cost of living is far outpacing earnings.

But, then, kids have more open minds and are less indoctrinated than the average Obama voter.
