The Politico website sent out an excerpt Thursday morning from a soon-to-be-published Rolling Stone interview where President Obama seems to accuse his Republican opponent of being nothing more than a “bullshitter.”:

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.'”

The Obama campaign has not responded to a request for comment.
