After spending several weeks expressing disdain for pundits' calls for President Obama to show more emotion and outrage about the environmental disaster in the Gulf -- White House officials called it " method acting" and " theatrics" -- President Obama showed some anger in an interview to air on NBC tomorrow morning.
"I was down there a month ago, before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the Gulf," the president told Matt Lauer in a clip released this evening. "A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. And I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick."
