You can tell it in his response that he's kind of like, why are we talkinga bout this when there's far more graver issues.
I agree with the overall sentiment, but it should be noted that the reporter was from Minnesota, a hockey hotbed. I' d bet a reporter from Buffalo, Boston or any other hockey crazy town would have asked the same. You can only talk about the fiscal cliff for so long....
