Those between the ages of 10 – 30 years old likely watched videos by Bill Nye the Science Guy during their scholastic careers. Today Mr. Nye took a step to help preserve public education in this country by publicly endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election.

The endorsement took place at the Seacoast Science Center, where Bill Nye was appearing at a press conference with Congressmen Robert E. Andrews, of New Jersey.

Nye was quoted saying he believes the upcoming election is “the most important election of my life.” He is very opposed to Mitt Romney’s budget plan, which is the Paul Ryan budget. It is set to slash tens of thousands of teachers jobs, as well as remove over 200,000 children from Head Start — thereby depriving children of food and an education.

Enough, said Nye. He says this election is, “a crossroads, a turning point. We can either move forward, especially in education, or backward. I think voters have a clear choice, so I’m supporting the president.”

A full video of Nye’s remarks are available on the left hand side of this article.
