Will Obama heave Jamie Dimon over the side?
Obama can implement “The Droshky Plan” just as well as Nixon ever did. Here, in a delicious historical irony, William F. Buckley explains the term:
The next trick in Mr. Nixon’s bag is “The Droshky Plan” named after the sled used by Siberian peasants to cross the frozen tundra. When a droshky crammed with people comes under attack by wolves, the passengers lighten the load by throwing one of their number under the load.
Obama’s history is one of betrayal. Would he betray Dimon — despite his admiration for the man — to save his administration and, more to the point, his chance for a post-Presidential talk show or a job as a greeter for Goldman? In a heartbeat.
So let’s not be satisfied with Dimon except tactically (and from the aspect of Schadenfreude). Our Jamie is, after all, just one bubble in the giant sack of pus.
