Much hay has been made of President Obama's recent "whose ass to kick" comment, but of course the context of the remark was lost in the cacophony of condemnation. Here's Matt Lauer's question:
LAUER: Critics are now talking about your style, which is the first time I've heard that in a long time. They're saying here is a guy who likes to be known as cool and calm and collected, and this isn't the time for cool, calm and collected. This is not the time to meet with experts and advisers; this is a time to spend more time in the Gulf and -- I never thought I'd say this to a president -- but kick some butt. And I don't mean it to be funny.
