Obama's economic impact

Today I spent $8 onparking, $7 on lunch at jimmy johns, $3 on chai and
about $9 on gas. So $27 total. Not everyone drove so far or spent as
much, but plenty spent more just on Obama merchandise. Let's take $25
as average, multiplied by 25,000 people = $625,000 spent in Indiana.
This doesn't count security costs by the campaign, just encouraged
spending in the state economy. Perhaps he should keep campaigning
past the election to get the economy turned around.
