Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has declined the invitation to appear on Nickelodeon’s “Kids Pick the President“ special on Oct. 15, despite President Barack Obama making time for the show which features a Q&A followed by a mock online vote by kids.
“He simply didn’t have time. He couldn’t fit it into his schedule,” the show’s executive producer and host Linda Ellerbee said she was told by Romney’s camp. “That’s several million kids who actually want to get involved in the democratic process. They don’t deserve to be dissed. But former Gov. Romney also blew off Letterman and Big Bird, so I guess we’re in good company.”
Nonetheless, the move could be a damaging one as during the last few elections, the kid’s votes have matched up with the actual electoral college five out of six times. This diss follows Romney’s statement during last week’s debate that he would be cutting Federal Funding for PBS, the home of iconic kid’s show “Sesame Street.” That almost certainly raises the question of whether Romney gives a hoot about Americans below the voting age.
Nickelodeon began airing “Kids Pick the President” in 1992. Since then, only two other candidates have declined to participate: Democratic candidate John Kerry which in turn prompted President George W. Bush to withdraw. During this year’s Q&A, President Obama will answer questions on gun control, jobs, illegal immigration, same-sex marriage and bullying.
In other election news, actress Stacey Dash, who most recently appeared in the first season of “Single Ladies,” announced on Twitter that she would be voting for Romney. Dash tweeted a photo of herself in a red bodysuit reminiscent of “Baywatch” complete with life preserver in hand and the American flag as a backdrop and said: “Vote for Romney. The only Choice for the future.”
Tweeter Terri summed up Dash’s announcement neatly. “Does anyone really care about Stacey Dash’s opinion?”
Mark Hamill of “Star Wars” fame also used social networking to share his views on the presidential election. “I’ve never seen a candidate for President lie more than Romney,” Hamill tweeted last week. “He lies effortlessly, shamelessly. This snake oil salesman must be defeated.”
Here’s an idea: How about a debate between out of work actors fielding questions from kids?

Mitt romney, not nick romney u clown.
What else do you need to know.. The lying left liberal violent racist party only wants it their way. You disagree with the moron in the white house, you're a racist. You don't like his polices, you're a racist. The So called tolerant party proves time & time again that they are fringe party that will do you harm at the drop of a hat. I'm ready for them.
Who's Nick Romney? It's amazing how black people just give the democrats the black vote by default even though most African Americans hold conservative values…
this has to be a joke article… "Nick Romney?"
well isn't it nice to see Hollywood produce an original thinker. Good for you Stacey because we all know Obama is not for America, he si a mooch and a con-man, and further he does not speak for black Americans nor any Americans. Who here hangs out with such radical kooks as Obama does. And his followers are just trying to be cool and hip at any price apparently. FASHION rules…wait fashion and fascist LOL my own conspiracy theory. screw others who try to shame folks for not being fashionable.
oh yeah and who cares about your spoiled kids, we're not picking ice cream flavor here…get a life and lead or parent.
Nick Romney 2012! XD…….What an idiot.
LOVE U STACEY! HANG IN THERE.
There is nothing worse than a free willed black woman.
Mark Hamill – who cares about this double weak doooshbag! Obama is the BIGGEST LIAR we have ever seen. Amazing how idiots and other pacificsts like Hamill cannot see the truth. Obama is the corrupt, snake and wicked George Soros is his master.
mark Hamill needs to shut up and go back to the mental ward for hsi meds. WUSSY

Yeah "Republican" Hollywood producers will advance her career. I am not saying what she did is wrong, just be conscious of who your audience is…
wow.. smh noo I liked her!! thank god she's out of my favorite show lol
Get a Grip Stacy – Obama just spent a week on Big Bird. The folks at Sesame Street are asking the Obama campaign to pull down a TV ad released Tuesday that mocks Mitt Romney Four years ago, President Obama said that if you don’t have a record to run on, ‘you make a big election about small things.’ With 23 million people struggling for work, incomes falling and gas prices soaring, Americans deserve more from their president.”.
Another TOKEN black to go in the Repubs trophy case. And I actually liked her as a kid. What a waste.
