Hilarious and Brutal: Romney kills at the annual Alfred E. Smith Dinner

Tonight was the annual Alfred E. Smith Dinner where the candidates take a humorous break from the campaign trail. But I gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny Romney was as he delivered line after line, mostly about the president. In fact he landed some pretty hard blows on the president, namely one where in using the Sesame Street reference he said that President Obama’s remarks “are brought to you by the letter O and the number 16 Trillion.” Ouch! And there’s a lot more where that came from.

How about that. A non-Marxist with a sense of humor, to boot! Pretty neat, huh...? :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing! This is a MUST SEE.

A great moment in the midst of a campaign.

He hit it out of the park. Timing was perfect. Wonder if Dennis Miller helped write the zingers? He's been hitting the road with Romney.

:rofl:

Romney showed a lot here. He was obviously very comfortable in front of this mostly hostile audience. I'm very impressed how his energy level has held up to this grueling schedule and how well prepared he was for this event in the midst of debate season. Very impressive.

I watched Romney's routine at the Alfred E. Smith dinner when it aired live last night...Who knew that Romney had such a gift and facility for stand up comedy???

The performance truly was nothing short of brilliant -- I doubt Seinfeld or Dennis Miller could have delivered the lines any better.

He'll slay them at the White House Correspondents Dinner when he's president. :cool:

I think you're going at the right implication here.

We want a President who would stand firm for us against the Russians, Iranian. Comfortable and confident in his own skin, know what is important. He can deliver cordial right hooks, left hooks, rather than apologies. He can run over idiots like Hugo Chavez if need be. He may be the one who shuts down UN donation from our tax dollars, turn their NY building into Salvation Army facility to take care of our own needy. He is the President we need. Paul Ryan is very similar.

They are the team America need. I am sure of that, very very sure. They stand up for the United States of America.

Seemingly an excursion from the campaign, this speech firms up support from conservatives, at a minimum. he wont be just ahead of BHO, he's running away. Great use of a speech! Masterful.

Yep -- I got a large sense of that from the two debates also. Romney has a spine, and will not approach an issue from the standpoint of fear or hesitancy.

It's like that moment in the last debate when Obama expressed "righteous indignation" and waved his finger at Romney -- it just didn't look right. You just know whether a person is putting on an act, or has the courage of his convictions. And if I can recognize that, guaranteed all the tin-pot world leaders can recognize that also.

I can see Romney telling Medvedev, "Tell Putin there's no way I'm going to be flexible on that -- I'm going to do what's right." And they'll know he means it.

You must be a very intuitive person! One of the greatest gift in life is the ability to read another person.

Romney will only talk to Putin. He'd send a water boy to talk to a water boy, just like Putin sent Medvedev to Obama.

Never thought I'd say this, but Romney is turning into my favorite presidential candidate since Reagan. This guy is waay smarter than McCain was. Romney got his MBA and law degree at Harvard at the same time, McCain finished at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy, and probably only got in there because his dad was a famous admiral.

Obama's routine was flat and poorly delivered, if you can stomach listening to it a second time, in a way it was still, "All about me"

I saw it live, and I lol'd a few times. he really IS a funny guy. I've heard this a few times said about him from his campaign, but this is the first time I've seen it and it did seem very natural. Not sure you can fake it.

O's seemed forced, and like he was trying to still use it as an opportunity to recover from the first debate. One joke about it was funny, 4 or 5 over the top.

If I had to score them, R's was a 10, O's was a 5, and kind of whiney.

Was it me, or did R get more applause??

This was great. This, and his performance at the debates has really thrust Romney out in front of the people. And guess what? He's not the evil rich guy the Obama campaign is trying to make him out to be. He can be funny, personal and truly cares about people. He is getting more respect by the day.

I also liked the way Romney managed to deflect and disarm people regarding his own wealth. Paraphrasing here, he said, "On the campaign trail, you're forced to change your outfit many times...Maybe jeans in the morning, a suit in the afternoon, a sports jacket in the evening...But at this event, Ann and I can just wear what we have on around the house..." (Of course, he was wearing a tux... :supergrin: )

One thing that struck me was when Obama said he went shopping in a few stores while in Manhattan for the event and Romney went shopping FOR a few stores. A jab at his wealth.

It contrasted Romney's successful belief in capitalism against Obama's less successful disdain for it.

Yeah -- I actually found that line kind of humorous (one of the few by Obama that were), but it was clearly meant as a jab at Romney's wealth -- yet it did not diminish him in the least.

More class warfare. It's what Marxists do.

That, the Big Bird comment, and the part of how the media will report it: "Romney dines with the rich" were classic.

"Chock-ful-'o-assumptions" are we?

Lets see,

Are you assuming the wealthy don't like Romney?

Are you assuming that there is no one in NY that likes Romney?

Are you assuming that Catholics automatically prefer Obama's values and Reverend Wright's mentoring to a Mormon?

Just what makes that a "hostile audence"?

Nah, I'm too libertarian to get too worked up. At best he works for us. But... I'm developing hope that he might work out okay. Now if he starts getting back our liberty - eliminating fed. Dept. like Ed. and homeland Security... and rolling back some of these intrusive laws... Then I might get tingly! I guess I'm pretty safe there.
