LOU DOBBS (HOST): And the president today taking on the United Auto Worker Union, General Motors, and touting Ford and Toyota for investing in this economy. This president is, if you will forgive the expression, jawboning like no other ever has. He is a booster of highest order, picking up a phone or talking directly to a CEO and talking about forgotten man and woman and their jobs and their prospects.
KEVIN HASSETT (CHAIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL OF ECONOMIC ADVISERS): You're right, Lou, and as you know, that -- I don't know if you covered this on this show, that the president, very often, when we're in there briefing him on the economy, will pick up the phone and call somebody. And we were just in there briefing him on these numbers earlier in the week, and he picked up the phone and called you.
