Everybody is ecstatic with the jobs numbers today. Unemployment down to seven and a half percent, 165,000 new jobs. Well, it’s nothing, but in comparison to what it has been —
It doesn’t matter, Snerdley. The media’s all atwitter about it. That means the low-information voters are gonna hear that.

(laughing) If they’re gonna talk about how great this news is, then I’m gonna credit the sequester for it. He-he-he. Budget cuts, just to tweak ’em, you know, just to tick ’em off, budget cuts led to massive new job gains! That could be our theme here today. Make ’em prove it isn’t the case. Budget cuts, government getting smaller. Ahem. We know it didn’t, but this is just how we tweak ’em.
