frankly, i don't get what the big deal is about this one. what he said actually makes sense. what about that metaphor do you not get?

There is a great deal of controversy over the use and perhaps misuse of derivative investments. What is so worthy of shame in what the President said?

A speaker has to know his audience and speak to their understanding. Was he speaking to America? Does your Obamassiah sometimes speak in such common analogies?
