Mitt Romney Steals the Show at Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner … “president’s remarks tonight are brought to you but the letter ‘O’ and the number $16 trillion”

 

Last night we witnessed the lighter side of politics as Mitt Romney and Barack Obama appeared at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner … in the end, Romney NAILED IT!!! Guess what America, Romney is not a stiff, wooden robot. He is actually funny and real. 

America witnessed yet another Romney myth go by the wayside. Romney stiff, not funny, can’t relate to Americans or make fun of himself? HARDLY. Watch the VIDEO below as Romney owned the room and actually beat Obama at his own game … telling jokes and yucking it up. Romney was on his game and Obama, well, many of Barack’s lines  and jokes fell flat.

Mitt Romney … Guess what America, Mitt’s funny!

As the Washington Examiner writes … Romney was surprisingly hilarious. Surprisingly? No, not really … maybe only surprisingly because the MSM and Obama attack ads have tried to pain Romney something he is not. By night’s end and when American voters see the clips of the Alfred E. Smith dinner, voters will realize that Mitt just might be more likable than they were told.

Check out some of the more funny jokes from Mitt Romney as he did a tremendous job and showed American voters he is hardly stiff.

[Mitt able to make fun of himself and his wife Anne] Now Al, you were right, a campaign can require a lot of wardrobe changes. We — blue jeans in the morning perhaps, suits for a lunch fundraiser, sport coat for dinner, but it’s nice to finally relax and to wear what Ann and I wear around the house.
(LAUGHTER)

Let’s just say that some in the media have a certain way of — of looking at things. When suddenly I — I pulled ahead in some of the major polls, what was the headline? “Polls Show Obama Leading from Behind.”

…as President Obama surveys the Waldorf banquet room with everyone in white tie and refinery, you have to wonder what he’s thinking. So little time, so much to redistribute.
(LAUGHTER)

Second, find the biggest available straw man and then just mercilessly attack it.

Big Bird didn’t even see it coming.

And by the way in — in the spirit of Sesame Street, the president’s remarks tonight are brought to you but the letter ‘O’ and the number $16 trillion.
(LAUGHTER)

…now I never suggest that the — that the press is biased. I recognize that they have their job to do, and I have my job to do. My job is to lay out a positive vision for the future of the country, and their job is to make sure no one else finds out about it.
(LAUGHTER)

Barack Obama had some good lines but many fell flat and his timing and delivery was off. Maybe in the back of his mind he was thinking about that Gallup poll that had him trailing Romney by 7? However, as Newsbusters opines, one of his funnier moments was his making fun of Chris Matthews … “Four years ago, I gave him a thrill up his leg. This time around I gave him a stroke.”

      Obama did seem flat although funny at times.

      Romney was hysterical. He balanced making fun of himself and zinged Obama on multiple occasions. Then at end made a great statement regarding the fundraiser and its purpose and that he will stand with them in their efforts to savings lives.

      Powerful.

      ON MONDAYS, Wednesdays and Fridays, I like Mitt Romney’s policies. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, not so much, because he reverses what he said the day before. Sundays he

      refuses to give any specifics about his

      policies.

      Half the time, I like Barack Obama’s policies. When I don’t, at least I know what they are.

      “Guess what America, Romney is not a stiff, wooden robot. He is actually funny and real.”

      That Mr. Romney can read and deliver jokes somebody else wrote makes your claim definitive?

      A smart man who has the success that Mitt Romney has created, cannot operate without a sense of humor. That sense of humor about himself and his life is what keeps his ego in check.

      When you are President Affirmative Action and have accomplished little in your life as the result of your labor, not so much. An ego the size of a whale and nothing to support it is where Obama resides.

      Wow, Romney got to say what he wanted without being interrupted and cut off.
