Brought To You By the Letter “O” and the number 16 Trillion…..

A really awesome speech tonight at the Alfred E Smith dinner by Mitt Romney. This really is not only funny, but the points are absolutely well placed. I had no idea they could script something so well. It really is incredibly well written and executed. Enjoy…

  1. This was one of many good lines Romney came up with tonight. President had a few also, but look flat and defeated.

    yes, Obama looked flat and like he didn’t want to be there, at ALL….while on the other hand…Romney was charming, had great lines and looked wonderful ( hot! ) in his tux and white tie…I will be happy looking at him for 4+ years!

    It sure is nice to listen to a normal American POTUS-type who doesn’t talk in phony, stilted, pseudo-intellectual, ESL-influenced nonsense.

    Goodness….Romney had some real zingers, I think. And the audience was pretty responsive to them.

    Romney is SO comfortable poking fun at himself. How HUGELY different from His Highness. I bet obama was seething at some of those lines………….

    Mitt’s speech was both humorous and on point. A well crafted work of literary endeavor. I found it particularly amusing that the Cardinal was strategically seated between Obama and Romney. How is that for diversity…a Muslim, a Catholic and a Mormon? A cartoonist’s dream and possible SNL material.

    When Obama said that Romney went by his middle name, Mitt, and he wished he could use his middle name…I believe him.

      WHY would he want to call himself “Hussein”? (Assuming he’s a *cough* “Christian American”.)

    Have a funny feeling that, if he wins Mitt will be a better President than most expected.

      I suspect you are correct, Ms Tee. I was very cool towards Romney until I saw him speak in person, and Ann also spoke. I warmed to her right away, and looked at him in a different way after that. I’m more convinced the more I see him. Sundance is right – we have to keep his feet to the fire if he wins this election – but I suspect that might not be as difficult as I once believed.

        Stella, a good friend of mine echoed the same sentiments at the beginning of the year. She and her husband had met the Romneys at a fundraiser and raved about how genuine and friendly they both were. My friend implored me to vote for Mitt in the primaries; of course, at the time, I wasn’t buying because I was stuck on Newton Leroy winning the nomination. I can’t believe how my attitude toward this man has changed in the last six months. Guess that’s what happens when you’re a grownup. :)

            Those are the *only* qualifications — heck, even a Dem with such qualifications would garner a second look. The problem is, the vast majority of those in Dem party running for office are nasty, morally bankrupt people who either despise or are indifferent to America and her role in the world.

    Greta just mentioned it is significant a generally left leaning newspaper Orlando Sentinel has endorsed Mitt Romney for president. OS editorial staff says Romeny is the best qualified man to be POTUS.

        Senseless unnecessary deaths resulting from the executive inompetence displayed by Fast and Furious were executive incompetence underscored and repeated by senseless unnecessary deaths in Libya of four Americans. The ignorance and deceit and inaccountability associated with both homicidal SCANDALS has totally and permanently destroyed the political ambitions of BOTH Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. They are FINISHED because their profound executive incompetence AND dishonesty has been EXPOSED publicy and unequivocally. People who set that kind of low standard of job performance are not fit to be in ANY positions of executive authority where they tell other people what to do, because they need somebody to tell them what to do, a boss over them who has knowledge which they are without. These are not capable leaders as evidenced by such poor performance followed by lying about it. Such people are frauds and con artists, not competent executives.

    He looked so good tonight. He has the class that Obama will NEVER have no matter how hard he tries. Romney and wife look like The President of the United States and First Lady. Real Americans … not the phonies we have currently …. don’t get me started … da bunch a commies.

    No, Mitt had excellent material. In contrast … Obama? the material was flat but he tried hard to make it work. See you next debate Mr. President ….. bring your lunch.

    I had the same experience, early on I didn’t care for Romney, and in hindsight I realize I NEVER SAW him, only watched and read what was in the media.

    This was funny stuff, but not a hint of meanness to it, and more topical than political.

    I make special notice of something he said towards the end that I suspect will speak to many, support for the unborn.

      You are so right in what you say there MC! I do think also that the media have done their utmost to prevent people from seeing this gentleman clearly and have tired at every turn to put forth some caricature of him. He really was funny and got in some sharp jabs, but there wasn’t any meaness or contemptuousness, not like what oozes through when Obama presents himself.
      And I agree, was so glad to hear that support for the most helpless among us.

    Did any one pay attention to tingle thighs? And why the hell was he even there, much less on the dias.

    Near the end he stood up, and I swear he looked like a drunk….his pants were shoved below his gut, the shirt tail was coming out and his vest looked as if the buttons were about to give up the ghost.

    Nasty lookin….he should be mortified when he sees the footage.
