Video: Romney roasts Obama at the Al Smith Dinner

posted at 10:01 pm on October 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, I haven’t watched the clip yet but I’m told Mitt killed. In fact, judging from the introductions, sounds like everyone killed:

When you’re done laughing, go read this. Another bunch of 2008 Obama supporters turns red. Exit quotation from O, describing Tingles’s reaction to the first debate: “I want to apologize to Chris Matthews. The first time I gave him a thrill up his leg, this time I gave him a stroke.”

The nervous laughter during Obama’s talk was telling. Katy Couric looked positively ill.

LMFAO!!

This is friggin’ BRUTAL!!

Mitt KILLED!

Be SURE to watch this.

Tim_CA on October 18, 2012 at 10:29 PM

I’m beginning to get a little nervous about all the left wing newspaper endorsements…is this really happening?

d1carter on October 18, 2012 at 10:23 PM

The Sentinel didn’t do so because it wanted to—you can read the reluctance in almost every line, but at least it recognizes reality for what it is.

INC on October 18, 2012 at 10:29 PM

The candidates aren’t supposed to ridicule each other. They’re supposed to be self-deprecating and poke mild fun at the other guy.

chumpThreads on October 18, 2012 at 10:16 PM

OK, if it makes you feel better, Mitt scored all the points and Barry won this too.
Now excuse me while I go watch it again. HAHAHAHAHA

I just watched Mitt’s speech again. Mika’s gonna be in a nasty snit. Should be fun, see you there!

Naturally Curly on October 18, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Obama was great. Romney was good, but his material was a little to mean at times. Overall it was funny.

Ted Torgerson on October 18, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Thought Romney was extremely funny and his delivery was exceptional.

Most of Barry’s jokes were about himself, naturally. Self-deprecating about his first debate performance, but inauthentic. After all, he still doesn’t really think he lost.

Barry waited awkwardly for people to laugh, Romney didn’t have to do that because his jokes were actually funny.

Slainte on October 18, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Oh dear… I think I shall run away and weep now….

Rio Linda Refugee on October 18, 2012 at 10:32 PM

I wonder if Dennis Miller helped him write it.

SauerKraut537 on October 18, 2012 at 10:08 PM

Of course he did. He didn’t go on the road with him just to kill time.

Same reason Barry stopped by Daily Show. Grabs some lines from Stewart and Colbert, or their writers.

budfox on October 18, 2012 at 10:26 PM

Hadn’t put that two and two together, but now that you mentioned it, there was definitely some DM snark in Romney’s comments, but delivered in a classy way.

TXUS on October 18, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Yeah, you’re right. It’s not like O ever did anything mean to Romney…like accusing him of killing a woman with cancer, and calling him a felon. He should pick up the phone and apologize right now.

IrishEi on October 18, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Romney set was strong thank to Miller.

But Barry’s Eastwood opener, by far his best, was flawless.

budfox on October 18, 2012 at 10:23 PM

I can’t get mine to play, but I heard it was hilarious. Is there any way to introduce all of Obama’s rallies as brought to you by the number 16 trillion?

talkingpoints on October 18, 2012 at 10:40 PM

There have been one or two comedians who always laughed at their own jokes – the late Sam Levenson comes to mind.

Levenson was nonetheless funny. Obama isn’t.

ccrosby on October 18, 2012 at 10:40 PM

The only time Obama can laugh at himself is when political theater dictates that he must.

….

Otherwise, his monstrous ego smothers and chokes out everything else.

Apply the hubris to all his failed policies and beliefs, and there you go.

The Emperor has no clothes. And never did.

Hawkins1701 on October 18, 2012 at 10:42 PM

Romney was awesome. Obama looks depressed and listless. He looks like he’s defeated already. I’m also sick and tired of hearing about the gender gap. Can other women really be that stuck on stupid. I’m ashamed of them.

Obama is credited with that statement…

Electrongod on October 18, 2012 at 10:42 PM

Right around the 3:00 mark, when Romney is mentioning that they’re only a few months away from the end Obama’s term, check out the look on “the perky one’s” face when everyone starts cheering.

That, my friends, is the look of of despair and heartbreak.

To think she was suppose to be a “unbiased” network anchor makes me sick.

WisRich on October 18, 2012 at 10:42 PM

Governor Romney opened by showing a few loose-leaf pages in his hands and said -”my comments for this evening are on these papers, I brought them in a binder but the President’s Secret Service seized the binder at the door, saying it was ‘a subversive organizational device’.”

Further, it is the second left-leaning newspaper today to endorse Romney after The Tennessean (Nashville), which also endorsed Obama in 2008.

BTW, The Tennessean hasn’t endorsed a Republican for POTUS since 1968.

If you didn’t know better you would have thought Couric was a Romney groupie back there instead of a corrupt shill who would do anything to destroy his campaign. Also funny to watch Mathews. He keeps creepily watching Obama for his reactions to Mitt’s jokes. Dolan was just howling. That had to be like fingernails on a chalkboard for Obama.
Awesome.

AmeriCuda on October 18, 2012 at 10:58 PM

I thought Romney’s best joke was about the press: “My job is to lay out a positive vision for the future of this country, and their job is to make sure nobody else finds out about it.”

Romney stayed in campaign mode at an event where he should have dialed it back a bit.

The President’s been there before. He had enough respect for the venue and his opponent to keep his remarks within the bounds of good sportsmanship.

The good news is, Romney’s not likely to appear at another Al Smith dinner.

What Obama will never understand is that if he had been as inspiring as he was in those last minutes of his delivery, instead of his normal snide self, he might be looking at a second term. I honestly have never heard him speak that positively about America or Americans. Then again, I’m probably just feeling sympathy for him because he’s losing.

txhsmom on October 18, 2012 at 11:07 PM

I’m glad Mitt took it to Obama. Obama shouldn’t have been invited to this event in the first place. Here in NY, it’s a Catholic Charities event and many Catholic institutions are suing the adminstration. It really irks me to see Cardinal Dolan yuking it up with Obama, Matthews, Couric etc.

monalisa on October 18, 2012 at 11:07 PM

Good job by both candidates, but Romney was better. Obama actually had some funny lines, but Mitt’s delivery was far more energetic. That does matter a lot when doing a roast like this.

Doughboy on October 18, 2012 at 11:09 PM

I thought Obama’s lines were pretty funny. He just didn’t look very good. Seemed sweaty and mildly depressed. I wonder if he’s actually not feeling well.

Romney was very funny. I agree that these things are all about roasting yourself and Romney did that at the opening, but he did lay into Obama quite a bit. All in all, good stuff from both.

I’ve watched this video of Mitt several times now. Watched BO twice.

Whoever wrote this was brilliant – Miller? But Mitt delivered it well. Who knew he could be funny? He certainly landed some blows – heavy ones at that…. and they laughed.

In a few short minutes he came out ahead, once again. He’s a leader and a statesman. Moreover, he seemed to enjoy himself – so much for the dorky, stiff characterization of him.

I’m very impressed.

Cody1991 on October 18, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Mitt had a much better performance. However, I did think Obama ‘s joke about there being worse things to happen on an anniversary thaan forgetting to buy a gift was really funny.

Yes, from previous Al Smith dinners. Refer to Obama/McCain for the most recent example.

The common theme at these dinners is self-deprecation and mild pokes at the other guy.

Sheesh, I understand that people here hate the President and are rabid to see him defeated, but this was a charity dinner, not a cage death match.

chumpThreads on October 18, 2012 at 11:19 PM

Romney killed it.

Romney’s roast is great. Love it!

Well said!

I actually liked Obama’s speech better. I thought Romney was unnecessarily nasty for a stage like this. Imo, self deprecation with a few good natured jabs at your opponent is the way to go here.

Obviously most of you disagree with me. To be clear: I want nothing more than to see Romney win, so its not a political agenda thing, its just a preference thing.

Sheesh, I understand that people here hate the President and are rabid to see him defeated, but this was a charity dinner, not a cage death match.

Your whiny tears nourish and sustain me.

Loved the hit to the press and mention of the innocent child waiting to be born!

Do you keep repeating that to keep yourself from smearing your own poop on the wall.
