CBS To Obama: "Are You Punch Drunk?" Obama yucks it up while the economy burns.

Even folks at CBS have come to one of those Slap-on-the-forehead-"What-the-hell-did-we-get-ourselves-into" moments (emphases added):

In a wide ranging interview broadcast Sunday night, Obama was pressed by Steve Kroft on "60 Minutes" for at times laughing or smiling while discussing the global economic crisis.

[Kroft]"You're sitting here. And you're laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems," Kroft told the president. "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 ... Are you punch-drunk?"

[Obama]"No, no. There's gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day," Obama replied, with a laugh.

Yep... all these folks are just yucking it up all the way to the unemployment line, aren't they, Barry?

I'm sure they're just rolling on the sidewalk, roaring with laughter, as their possessions are removed from their foreclosed homes.

And all Americans who saw their retirement nest eggs reduced via the 2000 point drop in the Dow in the two and three-quarter months since you took office are no doubt laughing hysterically.

Funny as a crutch, Barry.
