New Obama ad uses Big Bird to mock Romney

Posted: Updated:

A new Obama campaign ad is using Big Bird to attack Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

During the debate earlier this month, Romney said he wanted to cut funding to PBS.

The Obama campaign has now responded with a tongue-in-cheek ad that blames the big yellow bird for the problems with the economy and praises Mitt Romney for "taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest."
