Ugh really? Must we be punished with an interview from Obama during pregame?—

CBS News carried a live interview of President Obama from the White House this afternoon, prior to this evening’s Super Bowl. The interviewer, Scott Pelley, asked Obama about gay scoutmasters, taxes, women in combat, and other issues.
Judging by the response to the interview on Twitter, quite a few Super Bowl fans were not happy to see politics injected into the pre-game show.
