My gosh! I haven't watched with my kids often enough I guess to screen out any new shows that may be questionable to our standards. But today, after Dora the Explorer, there was a tv ad talking about Obama - how he was the first black president, going on and on about his likes and dislikes. Obama likes playing basketball, or reading stories to his kids at night, or even what he shops for! GAG! They are trying to make him out to be Mr. Rogers! These poor little kids think he is a nice or cool guy, but they are going to have the biggest debt load and loss of freedom ever! They are growing up in a communist country...it's very depressing for me.
So, I'm doing what I can. I'm boycotting Nick Jr and writing letters and calling to let them know I completely disagree with them putting political ads on a children's network. Ugh!
