Mitt Romney (r): ….What things would I cut from spending? Well, first of all, I will eliminate all programs by this test, if they don’t pass it, is the program so critical it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it? And if not, I’ll get rid of it. Obamacare’s on my list. I apologize, Mr. President. I use that term with all respect, by the way.
President Obama: I like it.
Mitt Romney (r): Good. Okay, good. So I’ll get rid of that. I’m sorry, Jim, I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS. I’m going to stop other things. I like PBS, I love Big Bird. Actually like you, too. But I’m not going to, I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for. That’s number one….

“…I like Big Bird…”

@J_Hancock Yeah, but Romney wants Big Bird to work as the canary in the coal mine. 8:30 PM – 3 Oct 12
