    Looks like to me this poor little girl is tired of being taken to crowed Political events.

    Her parents need to leave her with a sitter and let her be a child while they take care of their Political needs socially.

    Tulip,
    It looks that way doesn't it? I had to watch the video a second time to notice they were in a parking lot. I agree with you.

    Seriously... how did you even come to that conclusion? How can you logically even jump to that? This election is everywhere, I've even seen ads aired on kid TV stations during the evenings and Saturdays. It's on the radio, billboards, people are talking about it everywhere you go. Kids pick up on that, even if you don't intend for them too.

    Might as well hop on board with the people on her youtube page saying she's abusing her child.

    Because there aren't parking lots at the store, restaurants, malls, or other places.:rotz:

    What if they were out at a shopping mall and someone was handing out fliers about a candidate and stopping people to talk to them? What if they were at a restaurant with some friends and someone brought up the election? I can think of a million different scenarios that are honestly far more likely than a campaign event for this girl to have been exposed enough to be frustrated. Not only that, but when kids are tired they can get upset about anything.

    Ha,I bet ya they kicked her and made her say what she said about Obama and Romney. LOL

    Who really cares.

    I just felt bad for the child. She seemed to be miserable.

    We can think what we want about where they are and why she is whining.,

    That was my first impression.

    Good lord you can google this and it is getting all kinds of attention.

    I'm sure Lisan did because guess where they are, yes in a grocery store parking lot.
    The child was listening to the car radio and told her mother she was tired of Obama and Romney.

    Whatever

    They have gotten lots of attention from this video. Guess that's what they were after. Good for them.

    Elizabeth Evans told ABC News that her daughter got emotional listening to NPR. "I just picked her up from daycare so she was grumpy after a long day and we were driving to the grocery store listening to NPR," Evans said. "And I wasn't really listening and when I was getting her out of the car, she started saying that she was tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney."

    Re: Exactly How I Feel

    My daughter didn't cry much when she was little but I do remember an unusual incident.

    We were at the zoo and by an exhibit where an adult was dressed up like a cow.
    A cute cow kind of cartoonish.
    Our daughter was three and broke away from us, ran up to the cow, hugged it and would not let go. Took forever to get her away from that cow. I remember she fought us to not leave that cow.
    Seemed totally strange at the time.

    I didn't actually google it, just used some common sense. The video was posted October 30th, as far as I knew neither one of the presidential candidates were campaigning due to Sandy. Not only that but the majority of Americans don't have access to campaign events in the first place so the likelihood of them having gone to one wasn't very high.

    I would not have given this video any thought at all after posting the other day about thinking the child was crying because she may be someplace she didn't want to be.

    Because of Lisa's post finding my reaction so bizarre, I have given this all more thought.

    Really this is off topic though and not political but I want to share this thought.

    My daughter during her adult years has always gotten very upset when she sees children being exploited. She reacts when I see nothing wrong at all. So now after reading about this video and other video's people, mothers and fathers post on you tube, TV etc. I can see a problem.

    I will just post this article to show what one of the problems can be and I see now how this covers my daughters dislike of exploiting children showing their thoughts, reactions and behaviors.

    Crying kids videos: Parents, put the camera down!

    A mom posts a clip of her daughter's teary devastation and it goes viral. Consider this a parental wake-up call

    By Mary Elizabeth Williams To be honest, I always thought that posting a video of your 7-year-old son David tripping his brains out after the dentist was a massive jerk move. Likewise, had it been my child wailing that his brother Charlie bit his finger or even experiencing the pain of learning that he is not a single lady, and will therefore not be putting a ring on it, my first response would not have been to record and share the experience. I also know that I’m in the seemingly humorless minority here, and that one child’s future traumatic memory is the world’s hilarious viral video.
    But when YouTube subscriber heatherfife uploaded a video of her 4-year-old daughter having a very 4-year-old response to some big news, and called it “Heartbreak,” it was no laughing matter. In it, her little girl, whose family is soon moving to Japan, is clearly already in the throes of an epic sobbing jag. Red-eyed and teary, she explains that she “really likes” her 15-year-old teacher Steven and doesn’t want to leave him. “I don’t want to go away!” she snuffles. “I love him!” Mom, who wrote that she “had to document this moment for posterity,” categorized the clip in “comedy” and tagged it “love heartbreak crying hysterical funny.”
    The 2-year-old clip, part of a disturbingly robust collection of YouTube videos of kids crying, suddenly blew up this week when Best Week Ever posted it with headline “Well, This Little Girl Is Going to Grow Up and Murder a Boyfriend Named Steven” and the warning, “I promise you this is more murder-y than cute.” Buzzfeed then swiftly posted it, with the tags “viral” and “cute.”
    As it turns out, while kids getting the crap scared out of them is apparently comic gold, embracing their grief is not. Online commenters, rarely known for their abundant empathy, quickly reached something surprisingly close to consensus. As a Buzzfeed post summed it up: “Maybe it’s time to put down the camera and just hug your kid. Not everything has to be YouTubed.” On Babble, Bethany Sanders asked “Did YouTube Mom Go Too Far?” saying, “I don’t think it’s cute, I think it’s really sad.”
    But where’s the line between cute and sad? What’s flat-out cruel? Recording a heartbroken preschooler who’s moving halfway across the world seems like a pretty clear sensitivity failure, but what about one who’s just having an old-fashioned temper tantrum? Or falling on his face? Come to think of it, even when a child is doing something so adorable it’ll make your brain melt, is it really always a hot idea to share it with the planet?
    Children are natural hams, to be sure. My own life ended a little the day my daughters figured out there was a video option on my phone. But our family code has always been that my girls have a say in how they are represented to the world — and if they’re too young to grasp that concept, they’re too young for me to do it. I also think there’s a vast world of difference between sharing something that’s ostensibly a performance, like singing a song or reading a book, and exposing to the world an unguarded and vulnerable moment of someone else’s childhood.
    I don’t hold anyone else to my rules; in fact, I frequently enjoy watching my friends’ movies of their children on Facebook and YouTube. But the outpouring of discomfort over heatherfife’s post is a healthy reality check for all of us parents. I screw up as a mom on a daily basis, so it helps to keep things really simple: If my daughters are hurt or sad or needing attention, that’s not a moment to think, “This is GREAT material,” and fire up the Flip. So if you want to laugh at the pain or the pratfalls of my family on YouTube, you’ll have to settle for me. Because my daughters and their tears, their tantrums, and their drooly returns from the dentist are off-limits.
