President Barack Obama was in town last night, and not only did he raise campaign cash with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, he also went on The Late Show with David Letterman.

On the program, Mr. Obama wove back and forth between somberly discussing the American economy and Mitt Romney’s recently-emerged remarks about 47 percent of the country, and humorously quipping about more happy topics like his daughters. For example, speaking about Sasha and Malia growing up so quickly, the president said, “It worries me, but they’re surrounded by men with guns.”

“I think that’s every father’s dream for girls,” Mr. Letterman responded while the audience clapped their approval.

Mr. Obama added, “It is a good deal.”
