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.

    And Mitt Romeny attended and particpated in a very large Veterans Event and Obama Declined and refused to participate.  Is Obama telling the military to kiss his ass?

    Ohhh my.. So, that picture up there in the OP.  A photographer took it as Romney was kneeling down to take a photo with the kids.  

    THIS PHOTO: 


    But, the sources the OP gravitates towards chose the other pic?  Interesting.

    I wonder what the girl up there in the op sees that evoked that response from her?  What was Romney stepping in, this time?

    Kids behind him rather than in front of him where they are in a position to ask a question is about right.

    That was just another demonstration of Romney's lack of foresight.  Kids represent adults.  Adults who tend to be pretty insulted when their kids are shunned.  People choose politicians based on a lot of non-tangible things like the way they treat people; all people including kids.

    Anyone who wants to be POTUS should have foresight.

    Romney might be of the old-fashioned  belief children are to be seen (with) and not heard.
