Obama is sounding the alarm about Romney’s comment that he loves Big Bird, but doesn’t want to borrow money from China in order to support him.The Dems are using the FUD (Fear,Uncertainty and Doubt)  principle that I learned about in Sales. Make the voter think that your candidate will save us from a fate worse than death, and ignore any logical arguments to the contrary.

Romney’s position is the only one that makes sense. If you can’t afford to pay the mortgage, it’s time to stop paying the cable bill. FUD is the only counter that Obama has. Scaring the voters is his only recourse, because there is no logical support for his position on taxes and the deficit.

An editorial in the Wall Street Journal makes the point really well.
