A video of 4-year old Abigael Evans of Colorado crying to her mother that she was tired of "Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney" has gone viral in the last 24 hours or so, and it's apparently all NPR's fault.
The Fort Collins girl and her mother were listening to a National Public Radio program discussing the presidential election when Abigael began crying, apparently fed up with the incessant coverage of the race. Her mom later posted the video online, and the rest is history.
In a quasi-jokey letter to the girl, NPR host Mark Memmot wrote the following in an effort to console the child:
On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: 'Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.'
Now their making little girls cry! I'm real tired of 'Bronco Bamma too, and I've had about enough! On Nov. 6th the poor little thing can stop crying, because 'Bronco Bamma is leaving, he's going back to Community Organizing! HAPPY TRAILS !!!
@rrh7152 She's a 4 year old!!! Of course she would prefer cartoons! I'm sure that at age 4 you would prefer to be home playing or watching cartoons rather then on your way to the grocery store with political talk on the radio. Jesus you Republicans have a patholical need to bitch and judge don't you?
Way to go Republicans! You took a cute story about an adorable little girl who is tired of hearing about the presidential race and turned it into yet another one of your bitch about everything fiestas.
You know seriously folks some of you need to take a deep breath, relax. It is what it is. A cute clip and nothing more. EVERYTHING posted on Politix is not an earth shaking issue to be taking sides on.
I can see why this little girl is crying! Sometimes I am so fed up with the Obama campaign and the Obama media that I feel like crying! This election has really token a toll on my interest in politics. And I figured I should put this one this one thought out there. Did anyone on here think for a minute that this could be fake?
@Starsplash Sorry, this app is so stupid, it makes you post unfinished comments! As far as I can tell, the Romney campaign hasn't done anything sickening at all, plus she said she was crying because of Mitt Romney, and Barack Obama! She said nothing about the campaigns! I was only making a suggestion that it was the Obama campaign's deception that made her cry.
Tell Abigael to turn off the tv and go outside. She doesnt even know who the president is. Tell her Rep parents stop using their little rep nit wit to help Willard, it wont help anyway. Obama is the true American President!!
Just think sweetie...after Romney wins Mommy and Daddy will know they won't have to pay huge Obama taxes in January! Then they will be able to give you a better Christmas...and a brighter future because you won't have to pay back all that Obama debt off...for those he's spending it on for today!
@dances-weebles The debt he promised to cut in half... remember when he made that dopey promise or it would be a "one term proposition"? You know, the one he called Bush "immoral" for...instead he doubled down on a bunch of failed "green companies" and stimulus crap that still hasn't paid off yet...all that debt!
@BravoJuliet whatever... you can stay in your little fantasy world filled with hatred and ignorance. enjoy your life because i don't care. you deserve for romney to get elected and completely trash the u.s.
