"The fact of the matter is, I think if you look at my track record, I'm

"When we travel, we've got to travel through Secret Service and Air Force
One, that's not my choice," the president added. "I think most folks understand

American people."

Republicans tweeted out what looked a tense exchange between interviewer
Larry Conners and Obama.

Conners asked about the economy and added: "Some of our viewers are
complaining, they get frustrated, even angered, when they see the first family

experiencing right now," Conners added.

Obama denied he was out of touch
