Obama Caught On Tape Being Awesome

President Obama hasn’t sounded this feisty since he was Candidate Obama. Check him out:

On Thursday, a live mic recorded the president talking to Democratic friends about the budget negotiations in what was supposed to be an off-the-record exchange. Railing on the Republicans for trying to sneak in attacks on health care reform and other priorities as part of the budget process, Obama said he told the GOP,

“You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We’ll have that debate. But you’re not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we’re stupid?’”
