I'd really like to know how Obama responds to that question.
First he will be short squeezed. Then he will lose his job at WSJ. Once he has a double whammy like that in his resume, he cannot find a new job.
Not only that but also longs are going make money if the stocks goes higher. Otherwise they will lose. On the other hand shorts are going to lose if the stocks goes up, and win if it goes down. It all makes sense, right?
