See, you have to understand. It’s not that President Excuses meant for everyone to hear that he called Mitt Romney a “bullshitter.” It was, you know, a totally casual convo with a reporter. Just shootin’ the breeze with a pal.

“You know, this was a conversation after an interview, a casual conversation with a reporter,” Obama told a reporter with KUSA, a local CNN affiliate based in Denver.

How was he to know that remark would get out?

Hey, he probably figured he could count on the reporter’s palace guard training. Oops.

Perhaps the “adult in the room” should skip the “casual” convos and focus on explaining why Americans under siege in Benghazi were denied the help they needed to survive.
