Remember back when using vulgarities by a President wasn't just acceptable, it was REQUIRED! But I guess times change along with the letter next to the President's name (R or D).

Flashback: Rolling Stone Defends Obama Calling Romney ‘Bullsh*tter’ in Its Magazine
Craig Bannister
By Craig Bannister | January 12, 2018 | 11:58 AM EST

President Trump is taking heat from liberal media for – reportedly – referring to some countries as “sh*tholes” – but, when Obama publicly called Republican rival Mitt Romney a “bullsh*tter” in 2012, Rolling Stone sprang to his defense.

In its “A Brief History of Presidential Profanity,” Rolling Stone began by mocking the outrage at Obama’s vulgarity:

Quote:
“When President Obama called Mitt Romney a "bullsh*tter" in the pages of Rolling Stone earlier this year, it set off a brief firestorm. Defenders of the Republican candidate were shocked – shocked! – that the man holding the highest office in the land would resort to such language.

“In truth, the halls of the White House (like nearly every other house in the country, with the apparent exception of Romney's) have heard no shortage of profanity over the decades.”


Vulgar language isn’t just acceptable – it’s even required for a U.S. president, Rolling Stone declared:

Quote:
“It's a dirty job, leading the free world. Sometimes it takes a few dirty words.”

Rolling Stone even justified Obama calling Romney a “bullsh*tter” – because “the dirty word is more precise.”

The magazine then listed examples of vulgarity employed by a host of presidents, vice-presidents and presidential candidates:

Abraham Lincoln: "There is nothing to make an Englishman excrement quicker than the sight of General George Washington."
Barack Obama: “Obama really drew the ire of the pious, calling opponent Mitt Romney a ‘bullshitter.’ Sometimes the dirty word is the most precise.”

Joe Biden: "This is a big f**king deal."
Dick Cheney: “Cheney reportedly told Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to ‘go f**k [himself]’”
George W. Bush: “Commented on the presence of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer. Believing he had an audience of one, Bush called Clymer a ‘major-league asshole.’”
Barack Obama: "I don't think I should take any sh*t from anybody on that, do you?"
Richard Nixon: “The Watergate tapes put the phrase ‘expletive deleted’ on the map.”
Lyndon Johnson: "I do know the difference between chicken sh*t and chicken salad,"
John F. Kennedy: "This is obviously a f**k-up."
Harry Truman: “In Truman's eyes, General Douglas MacArthur was a "dumb son of a bitch," and Nixon was ‘a shifty-eyed goddamned liar.’”

Don't know why, but this post reminds me of this exchange in Good Morning, Vietnam....

Lt. Steven Hauk: Sir, the man has got an irreverent tendency. He did a very off-color parody of former VP Nixon.

General Taylor: I thought it was hilarious.

Lt. Steven Hauk: Respectfully, sir, the former VP is a good man and a decent man.

General Taylor: Bullsh•t! I know Nixon personally. He lugs a trainload of sh•t behind him that could fertilize the Sinai. Why, I wouldn't buy an apple from the son of a b•tch and I consider him a good, close, personal friend.
