Just great. Romney is not in the least intimidated by the Food Stamp President or Clinton.

We’ve come a long way to watch this clown fall...

Schadenfreude.

I was reading the comments over on the HuffPo, and it is amazing what the left mind sees and hears!

How about the line about how he admires St. Peter and that Christ said “ Upon this rock I will build my church “ and that the story is all the more inspiring when you consider that he had so many scoffers and skeptics who heard of saying “ if you got a church ? you didn’t build that “ ....

Good stuff!! FoxNews and Talk Radio hosts will be playing this over and over and over again tomorrow, for all those who missed it tonight, driving the Left insane.

HA-ha!

I think that one word says it all “classy”...exactly what the Food Stamp President lacks - “class”.

That was my thought- I’ve not seen such a succinct and polite shredding before.

Makes me believe Romney can handle Putin, et al.

Romney is a class act.

Some of his humor was self-deprecating and he did have kind words for Obama as well, not just jabs. I dont think I could bring myself to note Obama’s ‘wonderful family’ just days after having the guy lie to my face at my expense.

One of Romney’s self-deprecating jokes was about “this guy (Coumo) has been a governor for just one term and his Dad was a governor and he thinks he is ready to be President.” one of several good ones.

Romney had good practice. St. Patricks Day breakfasts here in MA. That kind of things is done among the pols there. He was ready.

And he ended it with real class.

This was absolutely fantastic. It was great to see Obama being mocked so effectively. Even liberals were laughing. Obama and Axelrod think they have some sort of monopoly on creating “narratives” and belittling the opposition. To see Romney take it right to them — right in their faces — and on a day where the polls have turned decisively against O — Wow! I think O knows it’s a lost cause at this point.

“Mitt went first”

and was a helluva hard act to follow. I was frankly very surprised at how smooth and richly funny he was. Beforehand, I thought neither Romney nor Obama would be really funny, just read a few funny lines. Romney really surprised.

That was a great line. Was really a must see home run performance for Mitt. Great job!

I’m sure Dennis Miller and staff provided some material.

" wow, that was the best speech i have seen romney give. he absolutely brutalized obama, and obama had to sit there and take it. "

That's nothing new, Americans have taken it for the last 50 or so years from Liberals and Main Stream Media.

Chris Matthews not laughing. It's unconstitutional to disrespect the President. Or has been since 2009....

The news is all good today! RCP has Romney leading the Electoral Vote. The "Swing States" have largely swung and blue states are now "swinging". obama money, pollsters and operatives are retrenching around previously solid blue territory. There was no bounce from Biden or the last Presidential debate for obama. Momentum was all Romney before this dinner; Romney filleted him while Libya, Fast and Furious, all continue to implode. Don't wan't to get cocky, but it's almost A PERFECT STORM! Photobucket

Obama was enraged. The constant sipping of coffee told that tale. I’m no body language expert, but that is done to distract and mask anger or nervousness.

One does not criticize the boy king, even in jest! Obama is not able to laugh at himself.

You have just given a concise review of the movie “2016” whether you realize it or not. Perhaps the movie influenced your comments? In any event, you are right on target.

This is the finest speech I have ever heard Mitt Romney deliver. Well written. Extremely well delivered. Self-depreating, but firm, forceful and on-target and the target was Obama and the Press.

Some great lines:

Rules of fairness have to be enforced, because what other protection do we have beside the press.

I would never suggest that the press is biased. They have their job to do and I have my job to do. My job is to lay out a positive vision for the country. Their job is to make sure no one ever hears about it.

It's the first time I've been truly impressed by Romney.

Great showing.

Relief is not being cocky, yes, I know this country has a long road ahead to recovery.... but, our country has gone through tuff times before and if all of us join in and pray, work hard, collectively with God's help hopefully this country might have a bright future.
