Prior to the debate, Mitt Romney is all like

Some of these things, like those endowment efforts and PBS I very much appreciate and like what they do in many cases but I just think they have to stand on their own rather than receiving money borrowed from other countries, as our government does on their behalf.

Which he echoed live on TV.

At first, Big Bird was like

And wondered if he was a part of the 47 percent
