Obama has made a Big Bird ad to attack Mitt Romney, as if we didn’t see that coming, the left are having a field day attacking Romney axing Big Bird, but in their ignorance they fail to see they are attacking their own policy when it comes to hating the rich..
Big Bird makes more money than Mitt Romney, but is still on the government dole: According to Senator Jim DeMint: “Shows like Sesame Street are multi-million dollar enterprises capable of thriving in the private market. According to the 990 tax form all nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 — nearly a million dollars — in compensation in 2008. And, from 2003 to 2006, Sesame Street made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales.”
If you break that down, it works out to over $50 million a year “Sesame Street” is taking in from all that merchandising. Yep, that one-percenter Big Bird makes about four times what Mitt Romney does annually and yet Barack Obama still wants you and I to still carry his freight.
No wonder Big Bird decided to keep quite on Saturday Night Live when he dropped in for a visit.
So if Big Bird makes 4 times what Romney does, why in the world does Obama want to keep him on the Government dole, well I will leave that up to you…
But these number prove the show could survive in the private market….
