Preaching to the choir of disrespect or telling the truth?
The conservative agitating machine is in an uproar about President Barack Obama slamming Republican nominee Mitt Romney for being dishonest on his assessments of the first term of his presidency.
In an interview with the Rolling Stone, the president goes forth to say that the perennial candidate is a "bullshitter!"
So I guess in the mind of Sean Hannity: How presidential?
Hannity is a notorious name dropping asshole. He has the nerve to call the president the "anointed one" and "president crybaby" among other insults.
Hannity also goes to defense of Rush Limbaugh who called the president a "jackass" and "Barack Kardashian".
Fox News is already sinking their teeth into the comments. If one thing is clear about civility, Fox News has none for either candidate. You remember they've pushed this notion that the Republicans are looking for the anti-Romney candidate and now full flip to supporting this guy and attacking the president for his honest opinion about this candidate.
Did they cover the issue when Mitt Romney's son Tagg jokingly threaten to take a swing at the president after the second debate?
That interview came just around the time they've finished their first debate and Mitt Romney was going around saying that the president is "out of time" when it came to policies and "he must go" after getting his first taste of a large crowd. Remember the rhetoric of "division and hate"! It came from Mitt Romney.
Anyways here's the Fox News clip.
The Guardian reports the an off-hand and off-colour remark by Barack Obama may have signaled a decision by his campaign to go nuclear on Mitt Romney's shifting ideological track record.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, conducted by celebrated presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, Obama labelled Romney a "bullshitter" – and rather than backing away from the comment, a senior Obama campaign adviser said it raised "trust" issues with Romney's candidacy.
Brinkley's interview recorded a conversation between Obama and Eric Bates, the executive editor of Rolling Stone. Bates told Obama that his six-year-old daughter had a message for the president: "Tell him: you can do it." Obama replied with a grin:
You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, 'Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell'.
Asked to explain Obama's remark, spokesman Dan Pfeiffer told reporters that he hadn't seen the article, but went on to say: "Trust is a very important part of the election. The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says, and Governor Romney's answers in the debates on domestic issues and foreign policy raise real questions about that."
Pfeiffer warned people not to be "distracted by the word" bullshitter but to focus on the issues.
Since the debates, Obama has called Romney's shift towards the political centre "Romnesia" for overlooking his past positions.
In an interview with CBS this morning, Brinkley said the term is a translation of what Obama was already saying on the campaign trail: "It's another part of Romnesia, I suppose. The working man's Romnesia is BS-er."
The Romney campaign said Obama's language was a sign of desperation. "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," Romney campaign adviser Kevin Madden told CNN.

On Romney's unguarded private remarks that 47% of Americans regard themselves as victims and entitled to welfare support, Obama said he was surprised. "That sense that folks who have contributed to this country but are at the lower ends of the income scale are somehow looking for government to do something for them, or feel some sense of entitlement, is just fundamentally wrong," he said.
The interview will appear in print in the forthcoming 8 November edition of Rolling Stone and is online now.
Sean Hannity puts on the controversial John Sununu to debate this non-story. They debate former New Mexico governor and presidential candidate Bill Richardson.
When you have a host calling the president the anointed one, the former governor of New Hampshire saying the president is busy smoking something then you're completely out the loop of reality!
These agitators in the media are the reason why Jon Stewart labeled Fox News, "Bullshit Mountain"!
