When asked whether he had a message for a six-year-old supporter, President Barack Obama took the opportunity to describe his opponent Mitt Romney as 'a bull#ter'.

The extraordinary comment - most mainstream media outlets decline to print such a word - came at the end of an interview with 'Rolling Stone' when Obama was asked one of the softest softball questions ever lobbed at him.

Obama is losing it. Romney is continuing to climb, the election is less than 2 weeks away, Bengazi won't go away. . . . . . . .

He's losing it people.

Losing it.

At the end of the day, you have to sleep in the bed you make and it seems like Obama has covered his with thorns.

Each candidate will have issues they will look back on and think: "What the hell was i thinking?"

They can only blame themselves for the decisions that they and those they have appointed have made.

Too true.

It appears as if he's just realising that he's responsible.

I'm surprised he didn't lose it a long time ago with the signing of the NDAA...

But I guess that's what I've come to expect in a society that favors security over liberty.

As an aside to my above comment.

I do not mind if a Politicians comes off as a little informal if they swear or do things that make them seem like averages Joes, In fact it is more appealing to me when they do. Knowing they have some kind of humanity is reassuring


However, when your in the last stretch for the US Presidential Election, you need to be perfect. This isnt your high school student body election. Obama and Romney have been far from perfect, but Obama recently seems to be smearing his image more and more.

Who talks to a "six-year-old" supporter like that?

Just listening to Obama for the last month makes me think he is auditioning for emcee of a late night talk show or as a comedian along the lines of Jon Stewart. He just seems so unpresidential here lately and it is beginning to show just how much he has been laying down on the job for the last four years. He is the real "bullspitter".

Much talk of rioting if Romney wins.

With Obama's current attitude, he'd be breaking windows!

Yet another piece of news that doesn't matter. You just stay in your little rabbit hole - won't you be surprised when you finally stick your head out on Nov 7th.

I'm sorry, how does this not matter? A president is supposed to be above reproach and the answer he gave to a child's question is despicable. I believe this shows a lot about Obama's character. It's the little things that matter and though this is a little thing, it does matter.

If character doesn't matter, then professionalism? Or how about we talk more abouthis lying about Bengazi? Or how about ACA? High unemployment? Record foodstamps? Devalued dollar? QE3?

Chickens are coming home to roost.

Interesting, they just reported this story on CNN. I guess they found it newsworthy.

Obama Really slipped on this one !!


It's a classic.

Perfect example of accusing somebody else of what you are guilty of.

I wonder when he will deny saying that.

Or will the Campaign "re-define" the meaning somehow


They need better excuses for failure.

It is my firm belief that we ALL, every one of us, do this. I've been wondering lately --- when I feel overwhelmed and incapable of truly comprehending "politics" and the real issues --- do these guys really know what they're doing?

Have they ever?

Will they ever? I'm no political scientist, nor am I a Wall Street player or a military commander....I can only understand those things as an observer and student.

Do we really know we can trust any candidate's thoroughness in understanding what is required to be POTUS?
I'm no slouch intellectually, and I'm a bottomless pit of curiosity and interest, with lots of time to indulge myself in learning. And I can barely keep up,

Maybe they really are just talking heads, entirely dependent on advisors and speech writers and coaches unseen. If I were Obama, I'd be round the bend, too......even panicking wondering what the hell I was thinking wanting this thankless job for 4 years, let alone 4 more years!!

Ugh. No thank you. I do not want to be POTUS. I'd rather clean toilets given the choice. Both would be dreadful.

I agree, it's the little things that (can) count. But two weeks before the election is not the time to try and add 6 year olds to your base. It is extremely weak and shows Obama's utter desperation.

I have serious doubts of the legitimacy of this story. I think that it is a fabrication.

I think that perhaps the President (in private) could have said that about Mr. Romney..but.not to a 6 year old.

The President has many people who do not like him; and they make up stories to make him look bad and discredit him.

Granted...he has make some mistakes in life (we all do) but I really do not think this is one of them.

Get the story straight, stop spreading lies & disinformation.

What really happened was that was a remark Obama made to Douglas Brinkley & Eric Bates after Bates passed on a comment from his six year old daughter.




Douglas Brinkley recounts an episode at the close of his interview with Obama, in which the president called Romney a "bull#ter"

As excerpted by Mike Allen:

"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 bull**&^%$*, I can tell."'"

www.buzzfeed.com...

Obama is right, kids & small animals know BS when they see & hear it, too bad the adults are so easily misled.

Seems like the only ones who are losing it are the diehard right(wrong) who will fabricate anything derogatory to try & salvage their soon to be monumental failure.

2 weeks till Schadenfreude

You are correct. He did not say this to the little girl, he said it to her father after the father stated that his daughter is supporting Obama.

RST 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 bull#ter, I can tell.”’”
www.weeklystandard.com...

However, I still believe this is an inappropriate comment coming from a president,
even if it was in Rolling Stone.

Obviously, you're right. Calling your opponent a (swear) is a class act and should be repeated.

Waiting for Romney to call Obama a ####ing liar.

Welcome again to sound-bite nation, ladies and gentlemen. Where even the smallest of off-the-cuff remarks get blown way out of proportion. It's happening on both sides and it's nauseating.
