President Obama Says Even Kids Know that Mitt Romney is a "Bullsh*tter"

| by Michael Allen

In an upcoming interview with Rolling Stone magazine, President Obama said it was obvious to 6-year-old children that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is a “bullsh*tter.”

In Rolling Stone, writer Douglas Brinkley recalls his Oct. 11 meeting with Pres. Obama:

As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. ... [S]he said, "Tell him: You can do it." Obama grinned. ... "You know, kids have good instincts," Obama offered. "They look at the other guy and say, "Well, that's a bullsh*tter, I can tell."

During the Rolling Stone interview, Pres. Obama also pointed to his accomplishments:

We passed health care, something that presidents have tried to do for 100 years, and we will implement it. We passed the toughest Wall Street reform since the 1930s, and we will implement it and continue to strengthen it. We have put in place a Consumer Finance Protection Agency.

We have expanded access to college through the Pell Grant program and by keeping student loans low. The list of things that we’ve accomplished, even once the Republicans took over [the House], is significant. … We’re going to have a full agenda in the second four years, but people shouldn’t underestimate how much we can get done.
