    I really wish I knew what the Republicans are so afraid of. Wait, it's that Obama will deliver on his promises, and the country will be a better place, and then, whoops, no Republicans will gain seats in 2010 or 2012. They can't stomach an educated, intelligent black man in charge. So they have to tear down a man who's been in office six whole weeks. Shouldn't they be out paying their bills and looking for a job like the rest of us?

    If Matthew's comment about the "tingle up his leg' was foreplay, this was the climax, so to speak.

  6. Where is the OUTRAGE when in 2001 GW BUSH gave 1.35 trillion dollars in TAX CUT to the RICH & CORPORATE AMERICA

    Alex Castellanos always makes references to $ex during his analysis. He made a similar reference during the presidential campaign when he said the repuliklan party has the hottest chick in the block in reference to Sarah Painlin!!!!!

    I wonder what CNN is still doing with the d$ck head? If he has so much testerone in his mouth, he should be shooting off his bazooka's at Cuba where he came from...Castro would have put him jail a long time ago for his denigration of women and his apprant feminine sensibilities and always making effeminate references in political discourse!

    What ? Yeah we saw it happen with the stimulus. Lots of foreplay and ram it through congress. Like my Korean girlfriend would have to cook him.

    Please the Republicans you loss and they loss big. By the way former President George W. Bush is the one to say I was wrong and President Obama was correct about IRAQ.

    Also President George W. Bush should give up his retirement income for the troops he sent to IRAQ. President Bush always rap his-self around the troops and flag but always wanting to cut troop benfits.

    Okay, now this is just creepy. Or is Mr. Castellanos saying that he gets turned on by the President? Is that a man-crush showing sir?

    It is so much fun reading about how the Republicans are running scared. They all thought Obama was like Bush or McCain run on empty promises. Everyone was waiting to call Obama out for breaking his work but got shocked when he started to do exactly what he said he would do.

    Now they just do not know what to do except to resort to their same old tired party talking points calling names and predicting the end of the world. We have hearde it all before and the story is too old and worn out to play agaihn.

    There will be a new order of business in washington. and it does not include the republicans.

    Alex Castellanos does not either know the meaning of sex or what sex means to him. Is he married? If he is he should ask his parter what sex means in their relationship. Or if he is not let him ask whoever he is having a relationship with to tell him what sex means.

    This is a pitiful excuse for a CNN column. With all the major issues at stake, get your minds fixed on reality, folks.

    Well, he is a good speaker but if that is what Mr. Castellanos thinks sex is must not be too good for him.

    Married for 23 years and going strong

    Does Castellanos have some sort of mental problem? Even more so, does he have some repressed desires? What the heck made him say something like that?

    Why is it that Republicans have to compare everything to sex? What's wrong with them?
