I’m starting to get a little tired of Obama’s almost constant use of analogies. There was the hostage situation, and also driving the car into the ditch. He needs to speak more to the point. I don’t think that he’s giving the American people enough credit. They can be spoken to clearly. Americans don’t need the constant analogy to understand what’s happening. What they want is to be spoken to like intelligent people.
Obama’s speech about the tax cuts wasn’t very clear and was clouded by talking about hostages. Yesterday, he had Bill Clinton come out and speak about the cuts. It was like night and day. Clinton just spoke right to the point. It was clear, to the point, and effective. Obama could take a lesson from Clinton.
