LEBANON, OHIO--Mitt Romney, at a rally here Saturday said President Barack Obama's "campaign keeps getting smaller and smaller as he talks about Big Bird and so forth and our crowds keep getting bigger and bigger. There is more of a cresendo and passion for change in Washington and getting a new president."

BACKGROUND: Mitt Romney--who brought up Sesame Street's Big Bird at his first debate with President Barack Obama--in talking about cutting the subsidy to PBS even though he liked Big Bird--wound up getting mocked by Obama--with Democrats sending a Big Bird character to Romney/Ryan events.
