Mitt Romney refuses to take questions from children on ‘Kids Pick the President’, Obama participated

October 8, 2012

Nickelodeon states that Mitt Romney opted out of the chance to take part in a “Kids Pick the President” special that includes his President Obama. The  TV channel for children said Monday that the Republican Presidential candidate declined to be involved in the special, while President Obama participated, the AP reports.


Videotaped questions are included in the program for the candidates from children across America. Afterward, viewers can vote for their pick for president.

The show’s host and producer Linda Ellerbee said that candidates show “respect for kids” by answering their questions and called Romney’s decision disappointing. This isn’t the first time Romney has shunned questions, but it is from children.  I’m going to wager a guess – the disrespect shown, will cost Romney votes with children today for their pick. Perhaps children have more common sense than adults, considering the the number of Romney supporters — some of which did not care for him only months ago. There is something wrong with a politician who cannot take children’s questions, yet feels he can lead the most powerful country on Earth.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to phone and email requests for comment.

In the Nickelodeon special, Obama is asked about issues including jobs, immigration and bullying.

It will air on Oct. 15, with no answers from Mitt Romney.

It is true that Obama would not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of our biggest allies, during a U.S. visit with the answer that "his schedule coud not permit this visit."  Israel is facing a crisis with Iran bulding nuclear weapons. But I saw that he and Michelle had time to go to NYC to go on the View, go on the David Letterman Show for the 2nd time and meet with Beyonce and Jay-Z. 




That is true, and verified. Maybe if he had made more time for his intel briefings the events in Libya, Egypt, and Syria may not have ended the way they did. ;-( not to mention he wouldn't have needed to make up lies to cover his lack of leadership.

I live in South Africa. Absolutely stunning country but the politics suck. There are violent strikes going on where the strikers kill people & the cops kill strikers. Trucks are burnt & stoned with the drivers in them. Squatter camps strike because they're not given free houses & things. Lots of fun & games.

The funny thing is a lot of people In our country seem to think free houses and such are the answer. Yet they ignore what is happening in your country where those policies are now failing. There isn't a single country that has had success with socialist, or communist policies, and yet just about half of our country want to vote for it. Confusing isn't it?

Don't get me wrong. I love my country & wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I just can't believe how much so many people on this site take for granted & the things that they complain about.

I understand. You just have to remember or know what we are accustomed to. Your reality is not ours, and we don't want it to be. That is why you see the things you do.
