    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.

    "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?"

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

    Good response. I am often guilty of the same ... especially when I hear a really dumb question or idea I often laugh. Have you noticed how often reporters ask dumb questions?
