Obama's problems with the language

Barack Obama said today that he plans "to offer carrots and sticks" to Iran in order to deal with the alleged nuclear problem with Iran. But here's the thing. You "offer" people carrots. You don't "offer" people sticks. You threaten them with sticks. You beat them with sticks. Terrorize them even.

Obama understands this, of course. It just doesn't sound as pleasant when you say it.
