Ronald Reagan used to tell the story of two little boys-one an optimist, the other a pessimist. The pessimist was placed in a room full of toys and he continued to whine and cry. In contrast, the optimist was placed in a room full of horse manure and given a shovel. The optimist was happily shoveling away the manure. When asked why he was so happy, he said: "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere!"
What are you? A Ronald Reagan Optimist or a Barack Obama Pessimist?
