Finally I'm always amazed how much -- mood decides our -- think about -- -- always negative guy who shockingly.
Never gets the promotion -- -- to maybe not even as Smart friend who does.

If we're doubtful or even worried we don't do much if we're optimistic and not so married we tend to do much more.
Nothing profound and saying here but I think he gets back to the very essence of our problems here and this supposedly recovering here.
A lot of the same buying.
So we're not buying period others who are buying it and going crazy about it so it's not like -- -- buying like crazy to celebrate it.

Are sinking in.
For Barack Obama.
It's not good.
