Obama is quoted in Rolling Stone and other publications as characterizing
Romney's campaign as that of a _bullshitter_.  As odious a term as this is
for me (I'm 71), in the style of Rolling Stone magazine, my son contends
it's appropriate.   Is the term used here as odious as say
_mother_(+something or other)?  The cable news media have substituted
_bull****ter_.  Is that necessary to comply with FAA rules about obscenity?
