Ouch!… 60 Minutes Reporter Asks Giggly Obama: "Are You Punch-Drunk?"
Steve Kroft from “60 Minutes” tore into a giggly Barack Obama during their interview that will air tonight.
The Pro-Obama reporter asks the giggling president, “Are you punch-drunk?”

President Barack Obama said he believes the global financial system remains at risk of implosion with the failure of Citigroup or AIG, touching off “an even more destructive recession and potentially depression.”
His remarks came in a “60 Minutes” interview in which he was pressed by an incredulous Steve Kroft for laughing and chuckling several times while discussing the perilous state of the world’s economy.
“You’re sitting here. And you’re— you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, “I mean, he’s sitting there just making jokes about money—” How do you deal with— I mean: explain. . .” Kroft asks at one point.
“Are you punch drunk?” Kroft says.
“No, no. There’s gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day,” Obama says, with a laugh.
Maybe The New York Post is right.
Maybe the Golden Boy is cracking up?
