America's economic recovery is good news, unless you work for a media organization whose job it is to make sure Barack Obama doesn't get re-elected. (5:23)

THAT GUY MAKES IT WAY TOO

(bleep) EASY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ALL RIGHT.

OF COURSE, THE MAIN STORY

TONIGHT THE ECONOMY.

THE DOW CLOSED ABOVE 13,000 FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR YEARS

TODAY.

AND THAT'S NOT THE ONLY

ARBITRARY INDICATOR MAKING A

MOVE THIS FIRST FEBRUARY.

>> A WHOLE SLEW OF GOOD NEWS

ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND A

RECORD-SETTING DAY ON WALL

STREET.

THE JOBLESS RATE IN JANUARY FELL

TWO TENTHS OF A POINT TO 8.3%,

THE LOWEST IN THREE YEARS.

THE ECONOMY CREATED $243,000

JOBS.

THE DOW SOARED TO THE HIGHEST

CLOSE SINCE BEFORE THE 2008

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

>> Jon: YOU HAD TO GO AND GET

BETTER WHILE OBAMA WAS STILL IN

OFFICE, DIDN'T YOU? YOU

COULDN'T HOLD OFF NINE LITTLE

MONTHS.

NOT TEENY TINY LITTLE MONTHS.

IT'S GOOD NEWS UNLESS YOU WORK

FOR A MEDIA ORGANIZATION WHOSE

JOB IT IS TO MAKE SURE OBAMA

DOESN'T GET REELECTED.

YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?

TO THE RETURN-A NATEOR.

>> IT'S AN ANEMIC RECOVERY.

>> THERE AIN'T NO RECOVERY.

>> ABOUT HALF THE DECLINE IN THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HAS COME FROM

PEOPLE DROPPING OUT OF WORK

FORCE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO

DISCOURAGED.

THE REAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS

WELL INTO THE DOUBLE DIGITS.

THE ECONOMIC DATA OBAMA IS

PEDALING IS -- PEDDLING IS

PHONY.

>> IT'S HOW YOU FEEL IN THE

THREE OR FOUR MONTHS BEFORE THE

ELECTION REGARDLESS OF NUMBERS,

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: LET ME SEE IF I GET

THIS STRAIGHT, THE NUMBERS ARE

REAL BUT THEY ARE NOT G. IN

FACT, THEY ARE BAD.

ACTUALLY THEY ARE FAKE.

EVEN IF THEY WERE REAL AND GOOD

IT WOULDN'T MATTER BECAUSE IT'S

ABOUT HOW BAD YOU FEEL AND

THAT'S WHERE WE COME IN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOX NEWS --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

BUT THEIR EARLY FEBRUARY

PUSHBACK ON THE ECONOMIC

INDICATORS IS ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

YOU RARELY SEE FOX THIS

DISORGANIZED.

LUCKILY ON FEBRUARY 10th THE

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE

SENT OUT THIS PUNDIT PREP

DOCUMENT, LET ME SHOW IT TO YOU.

IT'S A DOCUMENT EMPHASIZING HOW

TO MITIGATE ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY

BE OCCURRING FROM THE IMPROVED

ECONOMY.

IT FURNISHES REPUBLICAN PUNDITS

WITH THREE KEY AREAS TO FOCUS

ON, THE NATIONAL DEBT,

UNEMPLOYMENT AND THE PRICE OF

GAS.

LET'S WATCH AND SEE IF THE

FEBRUARY 10th PLANTING TAKES

ROOT.

FUR PLAYING ALONG AT HOME AND

LOOKING FOR NATIONAL DEBT,

UNEMPLOYMENT, AND THE PRICE OF

GAS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> THE DEBT IS THE ISSUE.

>> WHY ISN'T THE NATIONAL DEBT

THE MAIN ISSUE?

>> RISING UNEMPLOYMENT.

THE COUNTRY IS DEEPER IN DEBT.

>> 15% U6 UNEMPLOYMENT.

>> 8.5 UNEMPLOYMENT AND FOUR

BUCKS FOR GAS.

>> NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT GAS

PRICES YNCH IS NOBODY TALKING

ABOUT THIS.

>> $3.57 AND YOU MIGHT BE ASKING

THE QUESTION WHY IS NOBODY

TALKING ABOUTÑi THIS?

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: BINGO!

I HAVE MY WHOLE -- WHY IS NOBODY

TALKING ABOUT THIS?

OH, MY GOD GRETCHEN IS UNABLE TO

HEAR HER OWN VOICE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THAT IS SO TRAGIC.

FOR HER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO A LOT OF PUNDITS -- A LOT OF

PUNDITS AND NEWS SHOWS ON FOX

SEEM TO HAVE CONSOLIDATED THEIR

NEGATIVE ECONOMIC SPIN AROUND

THE SAME THREE DISTINCT DATA

POINTS PROVIDED BY THE

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE

PUNDIT PREP NOTE.

THAT'S NOT PROOSM YOU DON'T HAVE

ONE OF FOX'S TALKING HEADS, I

DON'T KNOW READING THE MEMO

ALOUD MUCH TO THE CHA GRIN OF

ONE OF THE TALKING HEADS SITTING

NEXT TO THEM, DO WE?

>> THE RNC SEES TROUBLE FOR THE

PRESIDENT REGARDING THIS.

THEY SENT OUT SOMETHING

ACCORDING TO THE PAPERS CALLED

PUNDIT PREP FOR THE TALKING

HEADS TO GOOD OUT.

THEY SAY THE THREE BEST WAYS TO

DEFINE THE BARACK OBAMA ECONOMY,

THE NATIONAL DEBT, WHICH IS

SKYROCKETING, THE UNEMPLOYMENT

WHICH IS NORTH OF 8% AND GAS

PRICES.

>> Jon: FASCINATING.

AND WHILE WE'RE HERE MR. DOOCY

WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE THE PIVOT

FROM REVEALING THE GAME TO

PLAYING IT?

>> AND GAS PRICES.

>> THEY ARE IMPACTING YOU.

HOW HAS IT AFFECTED YOU?

WHAT ARE YOU GOING WITHOUT?

E-MAILzV US, WE WOULD LIKE TO

KNOW.

>> Jon: YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

THAT'S LIKE HOSTING A SHOW WITH

A LAB WHEN THIS GUY IS ON THERE.

HE JUST GAVE THE GAME AWAY.

YOU KNOW, THEY SENT UP A TALKING

POINT WHICH BRINGS UP A POINT

I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT.

THAT RUINS THE GAME IT'S LIKE

SECOND AN E-MAIL TO SOMEONE

THATS SAYS HEY CLICK ON THIS, IT

OPENS UP A VIDEO OF RICK ASTLEY

SING" NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP"

WHICH UNDER MOST CIRCUMSTANCES

YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT TO GET.

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THINGS

HE WASN'T SUPPOSED TO DO THAT

WATCH HER LASERÑiñr EYES WHEN SHIES

REAISLES HE IS GIVING UP THE

GAME.

>> CALLED PUNDIT PREP FOR THE

TALKING HEADS TO GO OUT.

>> Jon: IT'S LIKE SHE'S GIVING

THE SIGNAL TO THE HOST WRANGLER.
