"Hi I'm Austan Goolsbee from the council of economic advisors, and today I wanted to talk a little bit about a major milestone hit by General Motors."

I don't want my cars to hit any milestones. I generally try to stear them away from milestones among other things. But I promise this was presented as an example of the brilliant Obama communications strategy.

You do not contest Obama's claim that FDR did nothing in public for 6 months (although by my count it was five months so he was wrong).

-- Robert Waldman to Paul Krugman

[Either you are a fool or a liar about Franklin Roosevelt and you should be ashamed of yourself but obviously you are incapable of shame. Yuch.]

At the same metaphors are also used to criticize, and are quite effective too,.
