According to President Obama, America’s economy is ready to take off. Well, as soon as Joe Biden gets done de-icing the plane with liquid nitrogen, somebody figures out how to power the engines with stimulus-funded batteries and the people up in first class are forced to pay their fair share, that is.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman, President Barack Obama stated, “I think America is poised to take off.” The main obstacle, in Obama’s mind, however, is political dysfunction.

“We’re seeing pretty strong consumer confidence, despite weaknesses in Europe and even in Asia. I think America is poised to take off. And the question is, let’s make sure that we don’t have a self-inflicted wound, because there are a lot of silly games played up on Capitol Hill,” Obama told Goldman.

And of course we can’t have a successful and safe takeoff if we don’t get the ceiling out of the way.
