President Obama goes one-on-one with Larry King on Thursday night to talk about the oil spill, economic turmoil and war. Watch"Larry King Live," at 9 p.m. ET.
Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama told CNN's Larry King on Thursday that he is furious about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, but his job is to fix things instead of just yelling at people.
In a White House interview for the 25th anniversary of "Larry King Live" on CNN, Obama called the oil spill an unprecedented crisis for the country but added it could have been worse.
Despite the challenges posed by the oil spill, global threats involving North Korea and Iran and political battles with Congress, Obama called being president "the best job on Earth."
"It's an extraordinary privilege to wake up every day and know you have the opportunity to serve the American people and make life better," he said.
King noted that the latest CNN Poll of Polls showed Obama at 48 percent support among the American people, which the president called pretty good, considering the circumstances.
"Given everything that's going on, my poll numbers are all right," Obama said.
Asked about his anger toward the oil spill situation, Obama said he was furious because "somebody didn't think through the consequences of their actions." Obama also said he had not seen enough of a rapid response from BP to the environmental catastrophe.
"I would love to just spend a lot of my time venting and yelling at people, but that's not the job I was hired to do," Obama said. "My job is to solve this problem and ultimately this isn't about me and how angry I am. Ultimately this is about the people down in the Gulf who are being impacted and what am I doing to make sure that they're able to salvage their way of life."

President Barack Obama will return to the Louisiana Gulf Coast on Friday "to assess the latest efforts to counter the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill," according to a White House statement.
Meanwhile, after every effort to contain the undersea oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico failed or fell short, BP devised a new strategy Thursday to cap the ruptured well, though the new plug will not be as tight as previously hoped. The oil giant said it would try again to slice off a damaged riser pipe and then place a containment dome over the well.
But after an attempt to sever the pipe with a diamond-embedded saw failed Wednesday, the company will have to use shears that will not be able to make as precise a cut. Even if the attempt is successful, then the cap will not be as snug and oil will still be flowing out into the Gulf.
