Both Governor Romney and President Obama spoke last night at the Al Smith dinner, hosted annually by the Alfred E. Smith Foundation in New York City. It’s quite the event and, during election years, it’s a chance for presidential nominees to poke some fun at each other and themselves.

That they did, and I heard Obama was actually pretty good. But I never, ever expected a man with as wooden a reputation as Romney’s to turn out to be such a  funny guy:

    From start to finish Romney surgically and with all hilarity took Obhammud completely apart while the latter ran out of humor well before he ran out of gas.

  2. H Hazell says:

    Romney’s lines and delivery had quite an edge, both in humor and in timely critique of Obama.

    Excellent video!! I can only imagine how Obama was reacting ;)

    – Romney showed class. Lines he didn’t use:

    “Its good to know we’re all better off than we were four weeks ago, as long as you don’t volunteer for consulate duty.”

    “But don’t get me wrong, I love the press, and they are always careful to portray me and my ideas accurately and fairly. If you doubt that just pick up a British newspaper.”

    “I wish the president could use his full name too. He must get tired of people referring to him as President Once”.

    Some are saying Dennis Miller wrote a lot of it; it sounds like him. He wouldn’t confirm it when some Dem called in on his show today; in fact, he acted like he needed a hearing aid suddenly. Miller said that Romney was that funny naturally. Whatever, it was a great night. Obama must’ve beaten Bo when he got home.

    Romney was spot-on in everyway. His staying sober for 65 years, and being a designated driver remarks were a pointed contrast to a man who basically bragged in his memoirs of being drunk, stoned on cannabis, or on cocaine during his formative years!
