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.

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".

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