*Video* Mitt Romney's
surprisingly hilarious speech
at the Al Smith dinner

Washington Times, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/18/2012 10:22:47 PM

Mitt Romney delivered a great series of jokes at the Al Smith dinner this evening in New York City. Both Romney and President Obama attend the 67th annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a charity gala organized by the Archdiocese of New York. The speeches traditionally feature political humor, as both candidates are invited during an election year.

Comments:
[embedded video] Romney not only was far funnier and more professional than 0bama but he received far more applause and cheering. It's like the businessmen not only like him better than 0bama but have a clear idea of how this is going to turn out in November.

Thanks, Mitt. You had me laughing out loud! I don't know who wrote it but you delivered it perfectly. It was an optimal speech.

"The Presidents new campaign slogan - you're better off now than you were four weeks ago."

The best humor has truth and a biting nature at the same time, and 0bama must feel bitten.

Great job by Romney. He jabbed Obama with humor, but drew blood, made fun of himself, and finished with a very dignified acknowledgement to the work of the Catholic church and the AES Foundation.

Came off as very likable, funny, and entertaining. In summary, a class act.

Romney killed.
His timing was perfect and the speech was hilarious.
He reminds me more and more of Reagan
The audience was clearly with him, including Katie Couric sitting right behind the podium.
Obama was so so and the audience
gave him polite applause , not the huge cheers Romney received.
Romney maintains an air about him that telegraphs confidence and strength.
Obama did not seem happy , despite the phony smile , during Romney's speech.

''RULE 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.''

Mitt Romney proved that tonight as he demolished Barack Obama.

I watched it live and Mitt was astoundingly funny, likable, and just plain great. As everyone before has said, Mitt had the audience in the palm of his hand, Obama had the courtesy of the audience, and that was all. It will be re-broadcast on C-Span 1 at 12:35 ET, 11:35 CT for you liberals who can't figure out time zones.

When the campaign started year ago, I was not that enthralled with Mitt Romney. I wasn't in his corner during the primaries. I must say after he clinched the nomination and I started to really listen to the man..... My God he is the real deal and I will crawl through broken glass to do anything I can for this man who will be our 45th President.

The only problem I have spent the last 40 years in liberal land and I still am. 27 years in Minnesota, 18 years in Washington State and now three years in Hawaii. But come March 2013, I will finally live in a conservative state...Arizona.

His help on that speech did an AMAZING job!

They took the opportunity to speak to the audience, Catholics and others in his voice. As to be expected, far more elegant that either of the Bushes.

This may be overshadowed, maybe should be overshadowed, by Obama's foolish remarks on Comedy Central. But this continues Romney's momentum.

As to those who criticized Cardinal Dolan for letting the President be part of this, this was clearly an unpleasant nine minutes in public view for a guy who bristles when criticized. Credit the Cardinal for creating this opportunity.

Mitt said Obama met with Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Benedict said he was having trouble. He asked Obama for advise and Obama said "just blame Pope John Paul II.

Mitt Romney cut Obama up pretty well here. Mitt was and is the real deal, no doubt.

As #18 said Obama used his coffee cup as a crutch/prop every time Mitt zapped him. It's no wonder Obama didn't bite a piece of the cup off as he was getting BBQ'ed by Romney?

Since everyone else has said what I thought... let me add this idea: This is a fabulous article/video to send to all your Catholic friends. Since (?) many of them may be Democrats, this shows Mitt to be wonderful/honoring of the Church's way, that may change their minds about voting for him.

They should all know by this time, that BO is desiring to break the Catholic church by the Mandate - and seeing Mitt be so supportive in all things the Church does - may turn their hearts... and their votes.

Let's hope so!
PSS: I was laughing out loud too!!!

#18, agree about Obama and the coffee cup.

Mitt hit the target many times, and was truly funny. Yet he got serious and talked about the needy, the children waiting to be born. I wish I had seen Obama's face. Katie looked a little confused, like, should she applaud that?

Notice the still picture below the video. Romney and Cardinal Dolan are smiling, and Obama is looking at them like Michelle looked at Carla Bruni (see Michelle's Mirror website).

I liked Mitt's line that if we didn't behave ourselves during dinner Cardinal Dolan will turn President Obama's wine into water- and my water into wine.

Mitt was clearly having a lot of fun while Obama was going through the motions. Except for the media on the dais it was a pretty tough crowd for Obama and it showed. I also thought it was petulant to bring up the unemployment number and say it wasn't a joke, just good news they should note.

I heard that Al Smith IV, the host and great grandson of the legendary governor, said this to Obama during the event. It must be tough facing an opponent who's created more sons than you've created jobs.

We howled at the Eastwooding.
Astonishingly, MR had me howling, crying, falling off the furniture, even as I felt the burn of each dart hitting the bulls eye in rapid succession.
It's rare that a comedic speech will be a perfect 10, without a single clunker...even for the pros.
The zingers zinged, w/o any of the cheesy low blows--the unfunny, uncomfortable nastiness towards others--so often deployed by Obie, and Bubba.

So little time; so much to re-distribute; bur, MR got it all done. He flamed media bias, Bubba, Big Bird and the 16T.

It was target practice, whilst lolling about the house in formal attire.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
