Romney Declines to Participate in Nickelodeon Q&A

First Big Bird, now Nickelodeon — what's up with Mitt Romney and kids?

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney celebrated last week’s “victory” at the first debate in Denver — at which he promised to cut off Big Bird’s funding — by telling youth-targeting Nick News that he would not participate in Nickelodeon’s long-running “Kids Pick the President” special.

It’s only the second time a candidate has declined to participate.

    Romney's probably going above the filter to talk directly to voters.

    I was in Kindergarten during the Bush-Clinton election and we participated in a mock presidential election. I don't remember who I voted for, but I distinctly remember the girl sitting next to me said she didn't want to vote for a plant so she was going to vote Clinton. Children are our future.

    oops, I mean the Bush-Dukakis election of '88.
