Kirsten Powers: Big Bird Ad Shows Obama Campaign Is "Out Of Touch"

"It's a truly terrible ad. When you watch it, it's short of shocking that they're doing this. It suggests a campaign that's completely out of touch of what's going on right now," Kirsten Powers said on the "Special Report" panel.

KIRSTEN POWERS: It's a truly terrible ad. When you watch it, it's sort of shocking that they're doing this. It suggests a campaign that's completely out of touch of what's going on right now. And not just because it’s trivial and there are serious things going on, but also because it’s just this out of nowhere messaging. What does Wall Street have to do with anything, that’s not what we’re talking about? And suddenly now, trying to suggest that Mitt Romney is somehow like Bernie Madoff? I have a very low bar in terms of expectations with politicians, but this is even a little low by the normal bar. To tar him as being like these criminals.

BRET BAIER: Now, even to go with the other side, the Occupy Wall Street side, they charge that the President never put anyone on Wall Street behind bars, and that’s an ad that…
