GOP strategist Alex Castellanos likely stunned many CNN viewers when he made a bizarre sex-related analogy to describe his reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.
“I think I’ve said before that I think a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex. The worst there ever was is still excellent, and I thought he gave a very competent performance tonight,” he said.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich looked totally baffled after the comment.
He continued: “One of the things working with candidates and political leaders is when they’re in a weak political position, sometimes they confuse volume and loudness with strength. And that’s what I felt the first half of the speech, that he was willing himself to demonstrate strength and confidence. But he did it with optimism, and that is the rare gift a president has. The president is the only guy in that top job who can say, ‘We’re going to some place better, follow me.’ I think it’s going to help him, it’s going to help the Democrats.”
