Source: Obama was 'rude and dismissive' in exchange with Democrat

Washington (CNN) – During a question and answer session Wednesday with Democrats on Capitol Hill, President Barack Obama offered what Democratic sources said was a testy response to a question about a federal loan guarantee program, with one source in the room calling it "rude and dismissive."

Other Democrats said they didn't think the president's response was dismissive, and pointed out Obama vowed to follow up with an answer. The lawmaker himself, freshman Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, said of the exchange, "I am the youngest of five brothers – I've been in a headlock before and it's all in good fun."
