Of course nobody knows for sure who's short and who's long here. But a constant stream of talking down the stock is an indicator that the poster is a short or just wants the stock to go down - - which for practical purposes is akin to being a short. A good enough indicator that I would bet on it.

Obummer actually did write poetry when he attended Occidental College in the early '80s. Two poems were published in the college literary review. You can find them by using the search term "Obama poetry". Read them and tell us what you think. I have read them and can now understand why he admits to having spent his school years in a "drug haze".
Short interest in NRF has been huge during the past year or so....during which the stock has tripled. So....yawn.
