Easy layup for Romney.

Via The Hill:

Mitt Romney on Tuesday slammed President Obama for talking about Big Bird on the campaign trail.

“These are tough times, with real serious issues. So you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about Big Bird,” Romney said at a campaign event in Iowa. “I actually think we have to have a president who talks about saving the American people.”

Big Bird has become a theme in the presidential campaign after Romney said during last week’s presidential debate that he would cut funding to PBS.
