GOP Strategist Alex Castellanos: Obama's SOTU "A Lot Like Sex"


ALEX CASTELLANOS, GOP STRATEGIST: 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. One of the things working with candidates is when they're in a weak political position, sometimes they confuse volume and loudness with strength. 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. That is the rare gift a president has. The president is the only guy who can say, we're going to some place better, follow me. I think it's going to help him and the Democrats. The policy was, I thought, too small for the moment.
