GLENN: I just saw — welcome to the program. I just saw Barack Obama on television saying that the economy is showing more signs of recovery. I'm having a hard time figuring that one out. Am I alone on that? Okay, we added 430,000 jobs but only 41,000 of them are from the private sector. The rest of them are for the government. I don't — how are you —
PAT: Only government can create jobs.
GLENN: May I ask a question? Just follow this with me. Okay. If we keep adding government jobs and not private sector jobs.
GLENN: And we keep taking private sector and shutting it down.
PAT: Mmm hmmm.
GLENN: Regulating it out of business, if everybody has their job with the government, they pay taxes, right?
GLENN: Okay. Where, where does the government get the money to pay the employees that have to pay taxes?
PAT: From the employees. So it's great. Because you are kind of paying yourself through a third party. It's really —
GLENN: Oh, you know, I never really thought of it that way.
PAT: Yeah. You know, it's great.
GLENN: If the government owned everything and you worked for the government.
PAT: This is great.
GLENN: When you paid the government for your socks, the government would then have the money —
PAT: To pay your salary.
GLENN: And you'd be able to pay your taxes, thus the government would be able to make more socks.
GLENN: That is incredible.
PAT: It's a genius plan when you think about it.
GLENN: Now, we're not currently making socks.
GLENN: We're not currently making anything.
PAT: No. Except bigger government.
GLENN: Oh, that's right, we're creating jobs.
GLENN: And jobs —
PAT: The job of the government is to create jobs.
GLENN: And jobs create money.
PAT: You're right. Now you got it. Now you have it.
GLENN: This is incredible. 95% of the jobs that are created were government jobs last month. 95%. That is not any kind of sign of recovery. That's a sign of death. That is the sign that it is over. And the president somehow or another is saying, yeah, well — really? I don't know how this one works. I'm just a dummy, I guess. Oh, no, wait a minute, I'm not. I'm actually a doctor. (Sniffing). Okay.
PAT: Almost forgot that for a minute.
GLENN: I did. Almost for a minute I thought I was a dummy and then I realized, no, no.
PAT: Then you looked up and you saw your —
GLENN: I did.
PAT: We're in your private lair and you saw your private university doctorate.
GLENN: I like to call it a sheep skin. You know, that's what us doctors call it.
PAT: I didn't realize that.
PAT: Sheep skin, all right.
GLENN: Wish I knew why we call it a sheep skin.
PAT: Take another doctor, you know, a fellow doctor.
GLENN: So, you know, it's nice to have a president that understands how an economy works so well that he can say there's signs it's really starting to turn around here when 95% of all jobs that were created last month were from the government. And I suppose he gets those kinds of things when he is spending so much time in the library. I don't know if you saw. I hope we're buying the tents for all of these parties at the White House because they look pretty expensive.
