Obama's barnyard epithet on Romney causing a stir

President Barack Obama's use of a barnyard epithet to describe Republican candidate Mitt Romney in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine is causing quite the stir around the Internet this morning.

Here's how Politico summed it up:

FIRST 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 bullshitter, I can tell.”’”
Tweets are pouring in, the majority of them negative (warning, the profanity continues).

Business Insider: "This is the first time we can ever recall a President using that sort of language in an interview. We look forward to hearing the White House's response."

Politico: "That's some frank language from Obama, who has a genuine disdain for GOP challenger Mitt Romney, as POLITICO's Glenn Thrush has reported."

Twitchy: "Just when you thought President Obama couldn't stoop any lower, here he goes again."

Very interesting.

Does Obama ever look in the mirror??

If George W. Bush had said it, then it would be, "oh, he's just talking like a good ole boy"...or he's one of us, straight talk...etc, etc....can't be worse than Mitt Romney's son going on federal public radio, saying that he wanted to take a swing and the prez, the double standards that you blind Republicans often use is amazing...the biggest most blindest moron of them all is Mitt "double talk" Romney...what is this chameleon going to say next?

Good for Obama. It is beyond time he took the gloves off and quite trying to play nice with opponents that are completely and 100 percent devoid of honesty, integrity and concern for this nation, willing to stoop to any level to sabotage him.

"As we left the Oval Office..." tells anyone with a clue that the actual interview was already over.

As a personal remark, Obama is completely accurate. What else do you call a guy who looks at the American public with a straight face and tells them whatever the polls tell him they want to hear. Nobody REALLY knows where Romney stands on many issues. He has changed those positions so many times that no reasonable person who has been paying attention is certain what his true position is. That is the classic definition of a BS'er.

Why is it everyone is so up in arms about comments people make these days??? Everything you say gets scrutinized, commented on or passed off as being "offensive". What ever happened to letting people have their say, and if you don't like it, you just let it go in one ear and out the other.

Most people who are losing the polls have to resort to such things. Obama lied and 4 people died.

I am so sick of The Conservative Observer readers being so ignorant. Romney changes his position and lies to the American Public - modifying his 'position' literally on a week by week basis.
Obama spoke frankly and personally - and I applaud him for being honest! Think this is why the Administration can't work with Congress? Or, maybe, because the Teapublicians have taken the GOP hostage and refuse to do anything at all, if it will help the County.
Finally, the comment about us decending into bankruptcy... funny. Deficit is less now that under Bush II (look it up), and it's hypocritical the debt is suddenly such an issue - the other 14 Trillion racked up under GOP leadership didn't seem like such a big deal until the Black, Moderate Democrat came to the presidency!

Regarding flip-flops....

Guess you haven't seen the videos in response to Obama's challenge to reporters that they can look at videotapes of his past positions and not see flip-flops. Guess what, they did. And exposed him again for the liar he is:

Call what you want and stop sugar-coating it. The real reason the GOP and the likes hate the president is the fact that an african american is now the leader of this country and can't stand the idea of him successfully accomplishing what they can't or won't do.

I'm so sure Romney...holier-then-thou Mormon that he is...has never referred to the president in any way that might be deemed offensive. Ditto for his staff...they're all a bunch of little angels, aren't they?

What a load of horse puckey. Obama calls it as he sees it.

Anonymous said...

Now that's what I call straight talk!

Mittens is an epic BS'er. He has eclipsed John Edwards as the most transparently phony politician I've ever seen. So if the right is all upset ... well, the truth hurts, I guess.

Incidentally, I'm pretty sure past presidents have cursed from time to time. Dubya was no stranger to the F-bomb (nor was Cheney, who told Sen. Patrick Leahy to "go (eff) yourself."

LBJ, JFK, Truman ... none of those guys were shy about cursing.

Yet when Obama does it, the right starts shrieking that it's unprecedented. More phony outrage, just like their hysterical reaction to "horses and bayonets."

Anonymous said...

Republicans have falsely called Obama a socialist, a secret Kenyan, a radical Muslim, a Marxist, a communist, a homosexual, a cocaine addict, an "anti-colonialist" (i.e., anti-white) and literally -- literally -- The Antichrist. And they've repeatedly called the First Lady of the United States fat, even though she is gorgeous.

So if they can call him (and her) all of those things falsely, it's OK with me if he truthfully points out that flip-floppin', "severely conservative" Mitt is a bull--------.

Those kinds of words are used all the time when talking about the POTUS so I'm glad he hit back for a change. Romney has consitently used negative, racist word when talking about President Obama.

When the other side starts to give respect then they will get respect. Since day 1 with POTUS got into office they started with the name calling and disrespect so therefore all those that think it's a disrespectful for the President to do it....guess what folks get tired of being disrespect especially the POTUS! Go Obama! Don't take they mess anymore!

I can't wait for Obama to respond by doing what he does best. Write a speech. American voters, do your country a favor and get this talking head out of White House and into a job at CNN.

Jeff said...

Unbelievable. Those of you who support Obama's behavior demonstrate how little critical thinking you can actually do. You probably thought Clinton having an affair with an intern his daughter's age in the oval office was "ok" too. Mitt Romney has done nothing but be successful at everything he has ever done, serve his country and act according to his beliefs. Why WOULDN'T we want a man like this as our president? After fours years as President, Obama still blames the previous administration for the state of the country and our economy; I have yet to hear him take responsibility for ANYTHING that didn't work out the way he wanted. Congress didn't act, its Bush's fault, its "rich" peoples fault, etc. If he wasn't an eloquent speaker (I give him credit for that)he would have never been elected and he certainly wouldn't get re-elected. And for the love of all that is good - quit calling him the POTUS . . . makes you sound as lazy as you probably are.

You know if Republican leadership is so grand where is the last leading bunch during this election? Rove, Rummy, The Decider, Chickenhawk Cheney where are they????? Virtually invisible that's where. Ask to hide from the machine I'm sure. They're probably hiding in the bushes, no pun intended, because they're hoping we all forget that last round GOP- istic leadership and pursuits.

Anonymous said...

Those of you who justify the President's boorish behavior on the basis of "other people do it" need to grow up and accept that the President of the United States is, and should be, held to a higher standard of behavior and decorum than "everyone else." Perhaps if you held yourself to a higher standard and quit expecting the government to take care of you and blaming others around you for your situation in life our country would be better off.

@kantstanzya From day one when POTUS got in office people like you have blatanly dispected him and his wife. You are one of the reason POTUS can't get bipartisanship in the govt.

So he called Romney a BSer. Romney would probably say the same. I don't consider this a big deal.

What amazes me are the comments here. Everybody thinks that their party is as pure as the driven snow, absolutely perfect in action and thought, completely incapable of ever doing anything wrong, and that every human being in the other party is the devil alive in the flesh.

The other side who had a secret meeting the night he was elected promising to block everything he proposed . Paul Ryan attended the meeting . As far as Obama's statement, was he lying? As far as Twitchy and the Business Insider , wonder if they had a reply to the secret Nixon tapes released in 2010 Google In Tapes, Nixon Rails About Jews and Blacks

Anonymous said...

Here are the words of Richard Nixon. Typical white racist republican. Thank God he is in hell where he belongs with your founding pedophile fathers .

The Jews have certain traits,” he said. “The Irish have certain — for example, the Irish can’t drink. What you always have to remember with the Irish is they get mean. Virtually every Irish I’ve known gets mean when he drinks. Particularly the real Irish.”

Nixon continued: “The Italians, of course, those people course don’t have their heads screwed on tight. They are wonderful people, but,” and his voice trailed off.

A moment later, Nixon returned to Jews: “The Jews are just a very aggressive and abrasive and obnoxious personality.”

At another point, in a long and wandering conversation with Rose Mary Woods, his personal secretary, that veered from whom to invite to a state dinner to whether Ms. Woods should get her hair done, Nixon offered sharp skepticism at the views of William P. Rogers, his secretary of state, about the future of black Africans.

“Bill Rogers has got — to his credit it’s a decent feeling — but somewhat sort of a blind spot on the black thing because he’s been in New York,” Nixon said. “He says well, ‘They are coming along, and that after all they are going to strengthen our country in the end because they are strong physically and some of them are smart.’ So forth and so on.

Romney is a such a liar and has traveled from left to right and back again that I doubt even he knows what he believes.

So he is a total BSer.

Many Presidents have been known to swear including Truman, Johnson, Nixon and W.

A nation that scarfs up violent sports, reality teevee and guns has little room to complain when a POTUS speaks a vulgar epithet.
