Joining us to psychoanalyze these candidates after what has been a very tough campaign and a very close one.
And those -- you and me in the rest of the voting public.
Psychologist doctor Jeff regard -- -- psychotherapist doctor Robbie Lodwick.
Aren't good to have you both here to be here let -- let's start.
Just view this is.
This is quite something we've -- President Obama.
In Chicago playing.
Playing a little pick -- basketball.
Working with the satellite interview.
We've got to.
Governor -- is just continuing the campaign right into the final hours -- what do you make -- direct reflection.
Of their personalities we know Barack Obama.
Is a guy whose physical.
He likes to be the -- and the best way to do that is to be stressed by doing something that he loves which is playing basketball.
I've been told this is a super station for him by the way.
He has to do it at this particular time that this particular kind of event he's been down this road before.
But for governor Romney this is a businessman.
Type B personality win win win do it right up to the last moment.
-- -- Now I agree and the most and they're both feeling nerve -- and they're both.
I'm sure not exactly sure what's gonna happen so they're handling -- inviting in a way that really works for them.
And -- I think I should point out that the governor Romney gets up at 5 o'clock in the morning you mentioned musicality.
He gets a good job plus -- hug god 5 o'clock in the morning and works out every day.
My he's not exactly.
But he I think he even the way does that he doesn't like a businessman he died before he goes to work so he can be charged up to do his job the way but it.
I think -- really is an intellectual law and so he is focusing on those states that he needs to focus on in order to it.
To win and he is as you said we are talking about it.
Type a personality so he's he's in it to -- and he needs to focus on -- -- -- both men type a personalities for crying out -- Some extent that they think Obama seems a little bit more laid back.
And he might you know the way he handles tension might be more physical -- -- which is why he's playing basketball or Clinton going out.
-- put up with all of this over the course of the past year and a half.
Watching this kindness and unwind.
House is going to affect the country were divided down the middle.
On the issues were divided down the middle on that these candidates.
One half of the country's going to be sorely disappointed -- Follow what's going to be -- Products -- instead of seeing excitement I -- a lot more angst and anxiety.
Because people are sympathize.
And empathize and putting their hopes.
On the candidates and so people gonna take this.
There read -- read personal we've seen -- before yes I think even more.
This time because one president represents social change and -- -- represents economic change.
I think that that the out of the Baghdad both trying to do their best to change that this this country and make it more positive.
In general people don't take it well when the candidate they vote for doesn't win and there's a strong feeling of disappoint man or a feeling of being implement.
If if their candidate -- But this that this has been at the bus and very good ice -- race a one president says he represents the middle class another present and is seen as representing.
Upper middle upper class so I think a lot of hopes are riding on the -- -- people and personalizing this -- -- -- look at here in the principles.
Are those accuracy representation.
Part one candidate.
For the pour -- one and the other.
The the wealthy.
Those are identifications that are not necessarily positive for either candidate and its interest in the middle class.
The middle class continues to be that group of people struggling most divided.
Most in this in this contest.
And also shrinking who has lost Morgan just about 4500 dollars and household income.
There is -- resolution because there hasn't been an articulation and the debate.
Of specific ideas.
Will there be a price that we pay as a society you mentioned social change -- that much social changer.
There's from that's positive.
There is tremendous economic change and it's not.
-- to the middle class is being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Many of the middle class who -- to see the social change now they're also really hurting as far as their pocketbooks and that's why.
We see that women were clearly.
For president Barack Obama at one point.
Now are also looking at no pun intended their own pocket -- -- and trying to wait what what do we want now -- social change -- do we wanna have a job.
And I agree I agree I mean I think both women and men in the middle class upper classes lower classes are looking to the candidate that they thinking create those jobs successfully.
And bring us out of this economic slump quicker.
And there is a division between men and women on this -- yes.
And and that division.
Looks like it's in I mean.
-- I don't know what it takes because when two candidates refuse to engage.
-- and by the way not -- simply these candidates you it's become the stuff of American politics.
Even though there's this polarization in this great divide.
These candidates have avoided some of the biggest issues in -- to.
Pretend wedge issues and business as usual baltics as usual thank you both for -- Richard I think you -- alright very much for.
