A cover story on President Barack Obama is set to be published in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. Mike Allen at Politico got his hands on a copy a bit early and pulled out a quote in which the President insinuates that Mitt Romney is full of shit.
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.”’”
President Obama also talks about health care, economic reform, access to affordable college education, and other tidbits from his time in the Oval Office. [Politico]
