President Obama is upping the slams on GOP challenger Mitt Romney as Election Day approaches. In a soon-to-be-published interview with Rolling Stone, a clip of which was obtained by Politico, Obama had a harsh word for his opponent. According to Politico, Douglas Brinkley reports in the interview:
"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."'"
Added to his previous comments about "Romnesia" and his "horses and bayonets" slam at this week's debate, it all signals a hyper-aggressive approach from a president who stayed above this kind of fray when he ran in 2008. Expect mass GOP hysteria in 3... 2... 1...
