In an interview for Rolling Stone, President Barack Obama discusses the biggest issues of his presidency and the campaign, and makes clear what he thinks of Gov. Mitt Romney’s method of winning votes.

The National Journal reports that Obama told Rolling Stone executive editor Eric Bates that the best measure of people often comes from children, who he said “look at the other guy and say, ‘Well, that’s a bulls***er, I can tell.’’”

“President Obama talks about trust, but he has broken virtually every promise that Candidate Obama made in 2008,” said Amanda Hanneberg, a spokesperson for Romney’s campaign. “[That’s] including his pledges to turn around our economy, cut the deficit, and change politics as usual in Washington.”

Obama said Romney’s comments that 47 percent of Americans would prefer handouts to working for a living surprised him, and has repeatedly referred to them as a miscalculation about the character of less fortunate, but no less hard-working people, according to the Associated Press.

“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.
