If you were on another planet somewhere and missed it, here's what Romney told debate moderator, Jim Lehrer at Wednesday night's presidential debate in Denver:
“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. I 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 it.”So here's my poll question: In your opinion, which of the following most disqualifies Mitt Romney from being President of the United States:
- His utter disregard and contempt for the role PBS plays in providing free, quality, educational programming to underserved Americans. [Read this NYT op-ed if you need background]
- His unbelievable ignorance in inferring that cutting PBS funding would have any impact WHATSOEVER on balancing the budget [which is likeunto advocating cutting your toenails in order to lose weight]
- Both of the above.
