Where was this guy in the first presidential debate? In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Barack Obama says Mitt Romney is “bullshitter”.
There are some things about this presidential debate that has most people baffled. First, everybody who’s not a voter registered with the state of Ohio feels left out of the actual campaign, whereas Barack Obama’s politeness had many ask what happened to the guy that promised change four years ago. But just several days to go before the actual election, it seems Obama took off his gloves and called Romney a “bullshitter”.
The first presidential debate was boring, polite and had people wondering what is going on with Obama. Whereas Mitt Romney isn’t a strong debater, Obama could have sealed the deal weeks ago, but he didn’t. He seemed so fascinated by something on his desk that he seemed oblivious to Mitt Romney’s controversial claims. LIAR would have yelled Jon Stewart and millions others at home.
But in a recent interview with Rolling Stones, Obama finally called Mitt Romney as so many people see him “a bullshitter”. Oh, yes he did. Douglas Brinkley, the Rolling Stone writer who took the interview, told Obama about a story the magazine’s executive editor Eric Bates had about his daughter. The kid wanted him to tell the president “you can do it”.
Obama liked what he heard and gushed: “That’s the only advice I need. I do very well, by the way, in that demographic. Ages six to 12? I’m a killer”. He then added: “You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, ‘Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell”.
Obviously, their moms will have a mild heart attack hearing their daughters and sons using profanity like that, but you’ve got to hand it to the president: he kept it clean for a year, while Mitt Romney had it coming so many, many times.
Spokesman Dan Pfeiffer later asked reporters not to get “distracted” by the president calling Mitt Romney a “bullshitter”. “The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says” the spokesman added.
But, in the end, Obama is still that polite politician who knows how to use the right words at the right time. It’s nice to finally have him voice out what so many Americans believe of his rival.
