Obama: This isn’t just some college seminar [paraphrase]

Kevin Jones, quoting Obama from an NBC interview, in which his comment was taken out of context, and made to mean something completely different:

Obama: “…I think that this is a — just an idea that got in folks heads, and the media’s run with it. I was down there a month ago, before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the Gulf. 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.”
