Romney Speaks at the Al Smith Dinner

A few hours ago, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the other guy he is running against attended the annual Al Smith Dinner. It is tradition for presidents to attend, and in election years, for both candidates to be present. Romney spoke first, and when he did, he revealed a sense of humor I doubt many knew he had. In this clip below, he mercilessly roasts the hapless Obama, gets a few shots in at the worthless media, and shows a charm and ease that suggests that he is truly hitting his stride in this contest. It is fun to watch:

That had to hurt. Considering that he was sitting right there, I suppose the only thing to do now is put Chris Matthews on suicide watch.

Sure, put Chrissy Tinkles on Suicide Watch. He threatens suicide, we’ll watch and see if he actually does it.

Sorry, but I have no sympathy for these libtard Goebbels Propagandist Cunt-drips.

Maybe it’s the extreme sleep deprivation talking, but that was darn hilarical. I was LOL’ing all though it; especially in evil glee seeing Obama nervously drinking his “water” whenever a particularly sharp stinging jab hit his dewy soft rose petal of an ego.

What a great speech! He finished on just the right note. The shots before that were just stupendous! :em01:

That was outstanding. Obama was laughing, probably to save face, but I was surprised to see Tingles actually seeming to be enjoying himself up there. Maybe he found the secret stash of sacramental wine or something.

Gotta agree with y’all. Thought the Mittster got in a few pretty snappy jabs in at Ogabe’s expense. That couldn’t not have hurt his image at all. Meanwhile back at the ranch, things indeed are looking up and the wind is at Romney’s back. When Obama needs to worry about Jersey, Colorado and West Virginia it’s a problem. I agree… Read more »

I find myself thinking of Mitt as more and more Reagan-esque as days go by. This easily could’ve been a Ronald Reagan speech. I have not consumed the Koolaid, and I hope that it’s not just wishful thinking on my part. A very deep and strong part of me remains skeptical, ready to be disappointed by milquetoast moderatism. But maybe… Read more »

I could kinda tell it was going to be bad for Obama from the look on Romney’s face right before he started speaking. There was a definite “cat that ate the canary” look.

Do keep in mind you do have to qualify his term in Massachusetts at least a little bit with “an 85% democratic legislature”. Vetoes, not possible.

The $831,000,000,000 economic “stimulus” that President Obama spearheaded and signed into law requires his administration to release quarterly reports on its effects. But “the most transparent administration in the history of our country” is now four reports behind schedule and has so far not released any reports whatsoever in 2012. Its most recent quarterly report is for the quarter than… Read more »

Romney turning into Reagan Mk II? I’m not promising it, but I won’t be surprised either. Remember, Reagan started out as an ortodox liberal during the 1930s, and had his eyes opened. Then there was Jeanne Kirkpatrick, who was an orthodox liberal professor of political science during the 1960s … until she got her eyes opened by JImmie Peanut. One… Read more »

President Obama is getting so desperate about Romney-trending election polls that he is calling on an old, discarded ally to help his get out the vote effort: Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Incidentally …

Although the Democratic super majority in the state legislator refused to budge. Romney vetoed 844 pieces of legislation, with over 700 overridden.
