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.

  • You will never get it.

    Leave up to the liberals to get kids involve. All
    the parents do is coach the kids what questions to ask.

    Mr Romney delights the children while demonstrating the ability that got him this far in the campaign:

    “How much did you ask for? $100? I think I need to squeeze out one more ten…”

    No wonder Romney shunned questions by kids – he can fool adults but kids see right through the obfuscation. If he’s going to start suddenly passing himself off as Moderate Mitt (as opposed to the old ‘severely conservative’), then this middle-aged suburban Jewish is going to turn myself into a teen popstar to sing about the Romney flip-flops (thoroughly embarrassing my teenagers in the process):

    EWWWW……..he FARTED!!!

    So he won’t talk to the kids, SO WHAT. At least he is not Doubleing the Nations debt like Obama. I think there is more important things to worry about then that. Children should be educated yes, but they are still learning. They do not deserve to have more pressure put upon them making a big decision like this. Kids are already forced upon many tasks for their future because of how the education system is now. I think this is a very little thing to worry about, a great leader is more capable of financing, Budgetting, and has the capability of making things easier. This is just a little flaw. Comparing to Things that CAN BE WORSE, this is just a little thing. Obama is just a Media craver, his wife was on Seasame Street, he is on Nickelodeon, and they are just after fame nothing towards the Nations Benefital factor. Obama has put our Nation in more debt and if he runs again about 700,000 people will be out of work. Look at the bigger issues then just one little mishap.

      So…how was that? Trying to come up with a valid reason not to answer questions from children? The cognitive dissonance in your brain must be tearing you apart.

      Actually, Romney’s plan DOES double the nation debt, and more. Do the math; he cuts taxes and raises expenditures.
