He Did Explain the Meaning of the Word "Is"

President Obama might have had a good idea. Said the president:

And then you've got President Clinton who made the case as only he can. (Applause.) After he spoke, somebody sent out a tweet -- they said, you should appoint him secretary of explaining stuff. (Laughter and applause.) I like that -- secretary of explaining stuff. Although, I have to admit, it didn’t really say "stuff." I cleaned that up a little bit. (Laughter.)

This might work if we can clarify a couple questions I have.

One, this might work if the new secretary is explaining "stuff" to our president rather than the public.

And two, it depends on whether the new secretary knows the difference between stuff and the non-cleaned up word.

Still, it is instructive that for our president, the solution to a problem is always more federal government.
