Obama turns to obscenities to attack Romney

President Barack Obama took Campaign 2012 to a new level —  albeit a lower one — when he referred to his challenger as “a bullsh—r” in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Obama, bragging that he does well in the six-to-12 year-old demographic told the magazine:

I do very well, by the way, in that demographic. Ages six to 12? I’m a killer. You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullsh—r, I can tell.”

The President’s use of an obscenity in a national publication brought an instant response from the Mitt Romney campaign.

Said Romney campaign spokesman Kevin Myatt:

President Obama is rattled and on the defensive. He’s running on empty and has nothing left but attacks and insults. It’s unfortunate he has to close the final days of the campaign this way.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer added his own spin:

What is true is that trust is very important in this election. The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says.

“Obama is not the first President to use obscenities and he won’t be the last,” a Democratic strategist told Capitol Hill Blue. “Some might say politics itself is obscene.”

      I must say it is refreshing to hear Obama tell the truth for a change.

    I don’t know if the couple hundred subscribers that actually read that rag will remember reading the article after their medical marijuana wears off.

      Actually, the Audit Bureau of Circulation, which audits circulation figures to verify ad rates, reports Rolling Stone has 1.465 readers and ranks 54th among America’s top magazines. That puts it ahead of Playboy, Vanity Fair, Forbes and others.

    This morning I was reading Time Magazine on the subject of colleges and their rising tuition’s. Romney was asked about this and he wrote that Obama was responsible for this because of the promises he made during the campaign. As the article went on I realized how many Universities had been financed by Bill and Melinda Gates and their continuing support of Universities, hospitals and many charitable organizations and not one of them had Mitt Name mentioned.

    I a little sick listening and reading about how Romney despised every action made by President Obama. Now I heard this one of Romney’s sons put a million dollars into a voting machine in several districts. These people have no moral scale to be able to criticize others. They are their church who helps only each other.I listened to Romney go on and on about how horrible Obama was and how he hurt businesses with his regulations and I could not take another word.

    Romney will lie and cheat his way into the White House and take everyone in his way down. This is not a leader of America that I can tolerate. I’m sorry I voted even for Obama because I know that half the voters voted for Romney and half the voters are too ignorant to know right from wrong.

    The Dept. of Energy is now under investigation for the scandal involving Abound Solar Panel company, Dept. of Justice under investigation for Fast and Furious, State Dept. under investigation for Benghazi, And the Dept. of the Treasury is under investigation for Delphi Pension scandal. And the White House is trying to question Romney’s honesty? You gotta be kidding me.

    Lovely words from our Commander in Chief.

    I suspect his foul-mouth and personal attacks are are doing nothing but further alienating his flock.

    Clearly, the man is desperate.
