Politico reported on Thursday that President Obama recently displayed his idea of “the new civility” in an interview with historian Douglas Brinkley for Rolling Stone:
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.”‘” (emphasis added)
After four years of privately insulting his opponents, President Obama has decided it’s time to share his real approach to “cooperation” with the voting public just days before the election. Undecided voters are certain to notice the President’s demeanor. It’s a preview of the style and tone he’s likely to display if he were to be elected to a second term.
