The 'Rolling Stone' Interview: Calling Romney Out
President Obama sat himself down and had a chat with Rolling Stone magazine a short time ago (the interview is online now, but it'll be in print on November 8th, apparently). In it he said a few things, including this little nugget, for which I supply a bit of context:
As we left the Oval Office, ['Rolling Stone'] 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. After a thoughtful pause, she said, "Tell him: You can do it."
Obama grinned. "That's the only advice I need," he said. "I do very well, by the way, in that demographic. Ages six to 12? I'm a killer."
"Thought about lowering the voting age?" Bates joked.
"You know, kids have good instincts," Obama offered. "They look at the other guy and say, 'Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell.'"
