ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION U.S. President Barack Obama met with executives from leading technology companies at the White House on Tuesday to discuss issues such as the rollout of HealthCare.gov, national security, intelligence leaks, and public-private partnership. But during a photo opportunity, Obama joked with Netflix Co-Founder & CEO Reed Hastings. "I'm just wondering if Reed brought advance copies of 'House of Cards,'" the President said, eliciting laughter from the room. "Are you willing to do a little cameo?" the executive asked. "I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient," Obama said. "It's true. I was looking at Kevin Spacey. I was thinking, 'Man, this guy's getting a lot of stuff done,'" the President added. Top executives from Apple, Twitter, Etsy, Dropbox, Yahoo!, Zynga, Sherpa Global, Comcast, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, and AT&T, also attended the meeting.
