CNBC got some action footage of President Obama during an interview when the president quickly smacked a fly that had been hovering around him.

“That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it?” Obama said as he directed the cameras to focus on the fallen fly. “I got the sucker.”


I guess this makes the president a no-fly zone.

He knocked down that fly faster than a Republican economic proposal.

I just hope PETA doesn’t make a big thing out of this.

For the record, no bailout money was used in the fly operation, although some stimulus funding may have been involved.
