Politico:…”One half of one percent — how is this truly a tough decision?” Todd asked Gibbs, referring to Obama’s $17 billion in planned program reductions.

“I’ll resist the temptation —,” Gibbs began, but Todd cut him off.

“You want to have a money argument, but the percentage does matter,” Todd said. “People are cutting back their spending by 10 percent. Companies are cutting back by 5 percent.”

“NBC!” Gibbs interjected with a laugh. “The stock of GE!”

It’s not the first time Gibbs has teased the press corps for its economic troubles. Earlier this week, when he ruled out a bailout for newspapers, Gibbs jabbed reporters for minimizing the scale of the president’s earlier budget cuts.

“You guys didn’t think $100 million meant a lot a few weeks ago,” Gibbs said. “But looking at some of the balance sheets, $100 million seems to mean a lot.”
