VAN METER, Iowa - Mitt Romney says he's scratching his head over President Barack Obama's focus on Big Bird.

The president is featuring the "Sesame Street" star in a new campaign ad mocking Romney's vow to end federal funding for public broadcasting.

Campaigning in Iowa Tuesday, Romney said "you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving Big Bird." The Republican presidential nominee said Obama's focus should be on saving the American people and family farms.

Romney addressed more than 1,000 supporters gathered on a corn field in Van Meter, a small town near Des Moines.

The Big Bird discussion follows Romney's saying in the debate last week that he would seek to end funding for public broadcasting.
