Steve Kroft asks Obama if he’s punch drunk, but avoids question he should have asked.

by editor on March 24, 2009

President Obama appeared on “60 Minutes” last night and giggled like an inebriated schoolgirl throughout a discussion of the perilous condition of the world’s economy.

It was so odd, so distracting, so bizarre, that Steve Kroft finally asked what may be the the most unusual question ever asked a sitting President.

“You’re sitting here,” Kroft said, “and you’re, you’re laughing. You’re 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. Are you punch drunk?”

That’s what Kroft asked. But we suspect that what he really wondered was, “How many days were you in office before you realized you were way in over your head?”

I despise this fraud.

I hope an asteroid hits DC and destroys the entire city


Yes obama is in way over his head, but that’s only if you think he wants to fix the problems facing America. Start thinking that these are not his main priorities and you’ll quickly realize that he knows exactly what he’s doing.


Have you ever seen a former President act any less professional during an interview than that? Appalling!


I didn’t watch the entire interview, but this clip had a surreal air to it that I found very disturbing. WTF does this chump think is so funny about our economy going down the drain? It was inappropriate, but the media will find a way to whitewash the whole thing. Here’s your hall pass, BO.
