President Obama reached a new plateau in his plan to diminish the presidency, apparently referring to his opponent, Gov. Mitt Romney, as a “bullshitter.”
From Mike Allen’s “Playbook” this morning in Politico:
FIRST LOOK – Rolling Stone cover, “Obama and the Road Ahead: The Rolling Stone Interview,” by Douglas Brinkley: “We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … 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 bullshitter, I can tell.’”
This could be the final straw for a lot of independents.
