When I first saw this ad, I thought it was a satire -- no party, no President would be so lame and trivial when the US is facing a debt crisis that threatens its standard of living and position in the world. Although I'm still on my first morning coffee, "apparently not".
As Mark Steyn puts it, if the popular merchandized Big Bird can't stand on his own two feet without government props, the Democrats might as well cut to the chase and subsidize everybody and everything.

The closing "taking on our enemies no matter where they nest" line is especially odious given the present admin's disgraceful conduct in and around the US Ambassador's death, Obama's fawning over any and all world leaders and his apologetical approach to US exceptionalism.
Romney should do an ad on how Obama "outsourced" the Ambassador's security and how the present admin then went into "deny deny deny" mode over what was obviously a planned terrorist attack to anybody who had eyes to see and ears to hear about the mortar attacks.
That would be biting.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
