Obama: No 'Icy' Relationship With Putin

President Barack Obama on Thursday denied having an "icy" relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and said the leader's tough guy demeanor is likely just part of his "shtick."
"I wouldn't call it icy. The truth of the matter is that when we are in meetings there are a lot of exchanges, there's a surprising amount of humor, and a lot of give and take," Obama said, according to a transcript of the interview with NBC's Bob Costas set to air Friday.
“He does have a public style where he likes to sit back and look a little bored during the course of joint interviews. I think that’s where some of these perceptions come up,” Obama added.
