Barack Obama thinks DC pols should act more like House of Cards‘ Rep. Frank Underwood (D -SC).
He told a bunch of tech CEO’s today at the White House, “I was looking at Kevin Spacey[‘s character Underwood], I was thinking man, this guy gets a lot of stuff done.”
Politico’s senior political reporter Alex Burns begs to differ:
False. Frank Underwood does not get anything done except an absurdly implausible federal ed reform law. And murder.

Burns forgets though – Frank Underwood also does a lot of rowing.
He also clearly spends lots of time coming up with witty asides and pithy monologues.
