While Barack Obama appears in the special, Mitt Romney does not. Nickelodeon explains:
Nick News traveled around the country videotaping kids asking the candidates questions. This year’s special features President Barack Obama who sat down with Nick News at the White House to answer kids’ questions. After numerous attempts by Nick News to get former Governor Mitt Romney to participate in the special, his camp declined saying he was unable to fit it into his schedule. The special features previously taped video clips of Romney addressing some of the issues raised in the questions as well as bios of both candidates.
Lindaa Ellerbee shared her disappointment with Mitt refusing to be a part of the special, stating:
By answering kids’ questions directly, candidates show respect for kids. We are disappointed that Mitt Romney wouldn’t take the time to answer the questions, but are thrilled that President Obama participated in the special.
