"People ask me all the time if I’m optimistic or pessimistic. Optimism and pessimism—who cares? That’s just an opinion about the future. I want realism. I just want to know what’s really going on. I want to be able to read the data, and then have an intelligent, grown-up, mature conversation about it. I’m not worried about being hopeful. You know, hope is overrated. It’s a great frame of mind, but it isn’t a strategy. Now, it’s absolutely useless from now on to quibble and to try to soft sell any of this stuff. And try and compromise and make people feel okay. We have to just start saying what’s actually going on."
