Romney Campaign on Obama's BS'er Remark: It Shows the 'President is Enormously Frustrated'
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, President Obama had an uncharacteristically frank assessment of Gov. Mitt Romney.
In the article by Douglas Brinkley, Obama is referring to a six-year-old girl who told her dad to tell the president, “you can do it,” referring to winning on Election Day.
“You know, kids have good instincts," Obama told Rolling Stone. “They look at the other guy and say, ‘Well, that’s a bull****ter, I can tell.’”
Bill Hemmer got some reaction from Bay Buchanan, senior adviser to the Romney campaign. She said the remark shows how frustrated President Obama has become in his bid for re-election, and believes that undecided voters - especially women - will not respond favorably to the remark.
"The president is enormously frustrated. He's tried to run a campaign over the last year or so that's been one long negative commercial," said Buchanan.
"I think he actually thought he could win by just trying to destroy his opponent. Americans have taken a look and Mitt Romney's run this big campaign about ideas and about the problems America faces and about a plan to turn things around. I think the comparison now is clearer and clearer as we get down to Election Day."
