President Obama: 'The Only Thing Romney Wants To Get Rid Of Is Big Bird'
The President of the United States, Barack Obama gives a passionate speech at a re-election campaign rally at the Bank United Center in Miami only a month away from election day.
'My opponent [Mitt Romney] says over and over that he can cut taxes, increase military spending, close the deficit.. but the only thing he's pointed to that he's going to get rid of is Big Bird', he said, referring to Romney's recent position on PBS funding. 'This week he said 'Don't worry, these new tax cuts will pay for themselves.'... that's how we went from surplus to deficit. We have heard this pitch before, we know it doesn't work, we know our plan does... This is what the election comes down to.'
