"I'm just wondering if you brought advance copies of 'House of Cards,'" Obama said during a meeting with Hastings and other tech CEOs. Hastings, as first reported by CBS' Mark Knoller, laughed and invited Obama to do a cameo on the series, which stars Kevin Spacey as the treacherous Democratic pol Frank Underwood.

"I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient," Obama replied. "I was looking at Kevin Spacey -- this guy's getting a lot of stuff done."
