Perhaps something along the lines of: "What a coincidence! He isn't a great president, either. The public exhibit of that can still be seen all around us."

The idea that a company can just hire more developers to become more productive is about as valid as suggesting that 9 women should be able to deliver a baby in one month.

"Side note: I'm going to hate this Clym person more and more each week"

Well grammar was never my strong point. That said "hate" eh? I reserve hate for people who sleep with ladies I'm romantically involved with or people who may choose to murder members of my immediate family. Hate for getting the wrong 'there' in a sentance, tad enthusiastic n'est-ce pas?
