Excerpts from the Press Briefing by Scott McClellan, February 5, 2004 (Full Transcript)

QUESTION: Good economic numbers today, I think durable orders, though, were off; a slight decline in jobless claims, I think the lowest since he took office. Does he have any reaction to that, is he aware of the reports?

MS. BUCHAN: Well, the President has taken strong and aggressive action to get the economy growing again and to help create an environment where jobs can be created. We welcome the reports today, the economic indicators, which show that the economy is picking up steam. And we're cautiously optimistic. The President does believe that there's more to be done, and he isn't satisfied, and won't be satisfied, until every person who wants to find a job can find a job, which is why he is so aggressively promoting his six-point plan.
