President Obama has proposed that America drop off the fiscal cliff, “just to see what it feels like.”
“As we saw with Hurricane Sandy, ordinary Americans pull together in a time of crisis. So I think we should let ordinary Americans be the bungee cord that will stop us short of the bottom of the fiscal cliff, and bring us rebounding back to the top — almost. Then we’ll fall again, but not as far, and rebound again, and then fall again, and rebound again …. Then we’ll dangle for a while, and hope that someone will haul us back up.
Y’know, that isn’t such a great metaphor. Forget I said it.”
