(CNN) - The Republican National Committee on Friday mocked President Barack Obama's recent interview with a New Mexico radio station - an interview which included questions on food, music, and what superpower the president would most like to have.
The RNC spliced the interview into a web video which shows Obama on the phone with his feet up and the words, "This is not a parody: Actual Interview with President Obama."

Obama is asked about his favorite New Mexico food and his recommendations for Chicago eats - and eventually one of the radio show co-hosts says, "We'll go to dinner when you come to town. I'll take you."
Later in the interview, she reminds him, "we have a dinner date now," then says, "I just flirted with the president of the United States of America."
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus posted a link to the interview to his Twitter page, and commented, "Americans are struggling and have serious ?s that deserve real answers. Instead, POTUS flirts w/pop radio host."
Both Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney have granted interviews with local outlets in battleground states in their battle for the White House. They field questions from from national outlets who follow their movements with varying frequency.
Romney's most recent press conference was on Thursday in South Carolina. Obama last took questions from wire service reporters in mid-June at the G20 conference in Mexico, while his last full press conference was in May at the NATO conference in Chicago.
At Friday's White House briefing for reporters, deputy press secretary Josh Earnest fielded a question from CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian about when the president's next press conference would be.
"The president has spent a lot of time answering questions from journalists all across the country," Earnest replied. "The president has spent a lot of time talking publicly about the issues he thinks are at stake in this election and are worthy of an important political debate about the future of the country. That is something he feels a responsibility to do."
